Cousin Gary was in town on business briefly this week. He suggested we get together for a drink while he was here. It just so happened that a friend of his plays in a band that performs regularly at Local 46, a bar I used to walk to from my old house in Northwest Denver. I picked up Ian and we met Gary after the kids went to bed. I can't tell you the last time Ian and I shared a beer in a bar on a weeknight! It was awesome to see Gary and very tempting to stay til last call. Then I remembered how old I am, and that I have two kiddos and a husband at home and a full time job that's pretty demanding. We cut the night short and headed home to reality but it was fun to be carefree for a bit!
