Last Thursday my three Nac girls and I went to Tyler to play in the Mah Jongg for Memory Luncheon and Game Day. This is our 4th annual trip. We used to just go up for the day. Then it turned into "let's stay the night and shop" which turned into "let's stay two nights and shop". It's funny how we just keep extending it. Ha! It's a little comical because we are some of the youngest ladies in attendance. Most of the ladies are 60 plus. Some one always comments on how young we are. It makes us feel great!
I won one game, we had two wall games, I think Lara won the most. We don't keep score or keep count of how many games we each win. I like to keep track for myself but I can never keep up with everyone else. We are just there to have fun and chat. I like walking around and seeing all the different Mah Jongg sets. Some are really fancy and colorful. I also like seeing how everyone dresses. Some are all dolled up and others are in jeans. We dress somewhere in between.
We made the newspaper! We were interviewed by a journalist from the Tyler Morning Telegraph. We joked that they chose us because we were young and could hear over the noise. Ha! Lara's name got misspelled. Some how mine managed to get spelled right. The no 'd' always confuses people.
We got some GREAT deals shopping! Every store we went into had tons of clothes on clearance. The most expensive thing I got was a dress from Old Navy for $21. I got 4 shirts from New York & Co for $1.15 each! One store was giving teacher discounts. I bought 1 long tank top, when I realized it was on clearance for 90 cents (with my teacher discount) I bought the other 2 colors they had. I would of bought more if they'd had more colors on clearance. The only "problem" with these great deal was that it made it hard to buy anything more than $21. Ha!
We also saw Ghost Busters. We laughed and laughed and laughed! It was so much funnier than I expected! I want to see it again because there were times I was laughing at something and then missed the next thing that was funny.
It was a great 2 nights and 3 days of soul rejuvenation. I get to do another girls' weekend with my Houston girls next weekend. That'll have to hold me over till next July.
