One of my favorite things to do online is to hang out on the Positive Discipline message board on AOL. In fact, at many points over the past 4 years, that message board has been the only thing that has inspired me to remain an AOL subscriber. I've developed a terrific bond with my "invisible friends" and count on them to keep me sane.

I've been fortunate enough to have met a few of these friends IRL (In Real Life). I met Tess and her family at the Honolulu airport; we all went to see Monsters, Inc. in South Carolina with Kelly and her kids. I drove to Ft. Worth to spend the night with Gretchyn when she was there on business, and the kids and I got to meet Stephanie and her son at a park in Tampa when we were in town for a family reunion.

My most recent IRL meet was with Claire, shortly before the kids and I left Florida to come to Germany. We were really pushed for time, but Claire was sweet enough to agree to meet me at the Van's skatepark in Orlando. She and I got a chance to visit while my mom and Annabelle wandered the adjacent mall and Mike hit the ramps with my sister's fiance.

Today when I picked up the pictures from the disposable cameras Mike took to Klondike, I was surprised and delighted to find a picture of me with Claire that day:

So now Claire, who reads the blog faithfully, is also IN the blog!
