Lately there seems to be onslaught of meeting people I’ve met online first. Yesterday was yet another occasion. For regular readers and especially commentators, you may recognize Carolyn. She is a fellow One Tree Hill fan and has been a great supporter of this site (and me) for a few months even though she doesn’t blog herself. She lives in Canada and is currently on vacation at a local beach. Her, husband and her two children drove four hours yesterday to come visit us!
We showed them around here and visited for a time before heading out to the mall for a bit to find some Converse shoes for her daugher (you know I had to help another female looking for a pair of shoes!). After coming home, the kids played and the men chatted while I cooked dinner. We had a late, but good dinner together and then played some Wii and had a cup of coffee before they headed back to the beach.
I have to say it’s amazing meeting someone you meet online first. It’s this weird mix of being awkward at first and yet knowing that you know so much about one another. We quickly settled in and were like old friends. The girls took so well to her daugher and even Carolyn. By the end of the night, they were curled up beside her and she read books to them.
It was a lovely visit and I hope to take up their offer to visit them in Canda soon!
