Well it was a lovely weekend. The weather was great and so was the company. Friday I got my car fixed. The alignment was off and I needed a new tire. The company works with my parents so they gave me a deal which was nice. I appreciated that. I went shopping for a bit and returned some stuff that I bought and decided not to keep. I do that sometimes! Then I went to a friend's BBQ - it was her son's birthday. I had a good time. I was going to go out after the BBQ but ended up going home and being really tired. It was nice to catch up on some sleep.
Saturday I headed up to my parent's house to swim and I ran into the whole family going down to Costco. So I ended up going there with them and taking my mom back so my dad could go to a car show. My grandma , aunt , uncle , and cousins went to Old Navy to go shopping. My mom and I had a really nice time just the two of us. I helped her set up for the BBQ we were having at my parents house and then went home and got ready. We had the whole family and my mom's cousins etc over. It was a great time. The kid's swam and everyone just talked. We haven't seen everyone in quite a while. My little cousin opened his birthday presents and loved them of course. It was a big day though. For some reason I was exhausted so I didn't stay super late and went right to bed. I'm getting old!! :) heehee
Today my cousins (they're 8 and 5) called me in the morning and were so excited because their mom said it was okay if they came over to my house. So I went to my parents picked them up and brought them over. My cat wasn't supper nice to them. She was hissing and being scared. Poor thing, she just isn't very social. I wish she was. We didn't stay at my place too long because the kids wanted to go to McDonalds. So I took them there to eat and let them play on the "big toy" for a quite a while. They had a blast!! I was the best ever according to them. :) heehee Just for good measure I got them some ice cream afterwords. Poor things were so full they didn't eat all of it but that's okay, neither did I. Then we went and got a couple of loves of bread and went to the park to feed the ducks. I love to feed the ducks. A lot of the time I'll just go to the park in the mornings and sit by the pond to feed the ducks. It's really nice there. So we fed the ducks and then they played for a while. Then we headed back to my parents house. I really had a good time. Boy was I pooped though. I'm not used to two energetic kids. They tucker you out!!
My mom, dad, and I took a little snooze on the couch while my aunt, uncle, and cousins went out for a bit. They are leaving tomorrow to go back to Alaska. I'll be sad to see them go. I wish that they lived here. I know my cousins would like to live here and my aunt too. However, my uncle loves it up there so that's that.
Okay a pet peeve. I hate it when you call someone and they don't call you back right away. I am very impatient though with these kinds of things and I know this so that's my fault. However, I just wish that I would get a more prompt call back. Makes me feel like the people I call don't care to talk to me when they don't call back. I know this is ridiculus, but I can't help feeling this way. Anyone feel the same way or is it just me? Seems like you should treat people like they matter and call them back. Especially when it's someone you're close to.
