So, last weekend was my 10 year high school reunion. Saturday we had a dinner for classmates & spouses. It was really nice, we got to see each other after a 10 year break. I was really excited about this event, but was a bit surprised that I was the only person who came that doesn't live in Washington. Perhaps it was just a bad weekend for people, but I wish a little more effort had been made by some. There were about 33 people in my class, and 13 were there. Overall it was a nice size group, but it sure would have been nice to see everyone.

On Sunday afternoon we had a picnic for the families. This was very poorly attended. I understand that some without kids didn't want to come b/c they aren't particularly smitten with children, but even those with kids didn't make a good showing. It was a bit disappointing, after all the hard work that some people made to organize the weekend. I'm really glad I went and got to see those who did deign to grace us with their presence. Hopefully we'll get a better turnout at the next one, whenever that may be............
