Okay, so I have been completely MIA. Forgive me. There was plenty of fodder in these last few weeks, but I just procrastinated the writing until the moments were lost. I’m unreliable. Deal.
Here are some bullets to catch you up…
- Memorial Day at my mom’s – My female cousins are awesome, including the “by marriage” one. We will forever be The Wondercousins! Their kids are lovable and funny and charming. It was a blast. I hope to never go that long without seeing them again. I tried hard to write about the trip, but I think I wanted it too much. The words just wouldn’t flow. I have a hysterical picture that deserves it’s own post. I think I can muster up a little something for that. Or maybe not. Deal.
- Kindergarten Graduation – Huck goes to a school with A LOT of Mexicans. This is not a culture I am familiar with. Oh hell, who am I kidding, if you aren’t white and from the south I probably think you’re a freak. My blog, my reality. Deal with that too. Anyway, the Mexicans like to dress their little girls like Disney princesses or tiny brides. Huck looked like the token white kid at Guadalajara High prom. I am not saying this in a judgmental way. It is what it is. He is very white. They are very Mexican.
- My health – Had two week follow up for my BP. It was 123/72 after two weeks on Benicar. Looks like I’ll be on that indefinitely. Great. I love taking pills. I guess I’ll have to deal with that.
There is more. The kids have been alternating between funny, annoying, and endearing. I have been interacting with strangers. We have been back to The Club. The potential is there, the ambition is not. Story of my life.
