My Sorority Meeting

I belong to an elite sorority.  I call it Phi Beta Congenital Disorder of Glycosylation Type 1a.  I have only 200 sisters in the US. Two others of those sorority sisters and I decided it was time to hold a meeting . . . over the best platter of enchiladas we could find. . . which happens to be in San Antonio, TX.

A "Fun Girl's Getaway" some might call it, but to special needs moms, it might likely just be an opportunity to sleep a much needed 72 hours straight.

My plane took off and the relaxation began. . .

I consider myself fairly frugal, but such a special occasion was just calling for a 1st class upgrade - so I treated myself to that for the 4 hour flight.

I arrived at 4pm and didn't know what to do with myself.  The other two CDG moms were not arriving until midnight.  I was in a beautiful city, in an amazing hotel, all by myself.  All that I could think to do was to stare out the window and breath deeply for at least an hour.

I eventually ventured out and found myself in front of the best platter of Mexican food in the city.

Eating dinner all by myself with a fork in my left hand and a book in my right hand proved an amazingly delightful experience.  After I finished dinner, I sauntered (ok, waddled really - too much guacamole) along the famous Riverwalk and got myself ready for my girlfriends to arrive and the fun to begin.  

To be continued. . .
