We just returned from a relaxing visit to Grand Blanc to see our friends, Meredith and Adam, their (relatively) new house and their (relatively) new chocolate lab, Sullivan. I have to keep repeating relatively because our visit was long overdue. Kim drove out for the evening as well. Their house is just great with wonderful decorating and plenty of room.
This was the first time our dogs met. Maggie and Sullivan had a rough start, with Sullivan being over three times her size but Maggie trying to be the dominant one. Once they figured out their roles, the play ensued for hours and hours. We had a delicious home made dinner and Death by Chocolate dessert. It was so nice to just sit back with my old girlfriends and catch up on life.
Now we're home. Maggie has already been bathed clean and is fast asleep. Brian is off on a 21 mile run (his last long run before the Chicago marathon), while I try to catch up on cleaning. I'm looking forward to more relaxing on the couch tonight and watching our Netflix rental, Nim's Island.
