This weekend Chuck and I got to spend our time with his sister Katie and her family. I loved being there… they are the greatest people. I am still amazed that we are family, what a happy thought. The coolest thing about it is that I am an Auntie now. I am sure many of you out there already have bundles of nieces and nephews… but these are my first ones. I have never really spent much time around kids in my life.
How grateful I am for these kids… they bring me mass amounts of joy, and I am happy they warmed up to me so quickly. Bill Cosby was right… they really do say the darnedest things. Life would be really boring without kids… I am super excited to have some of my very own:)
We went fishing, which I haven’t done since I was little with my dad… which was never a very fun experience for him because I was so high maintenance when we fished. Dad! you would have been so proud of me. I got my own fishing pole ready, baited my hooks and took the fish I caught off. Thanks be to my husband who gave me a couple quick lessons and assured me that i was stronger than I think. I had just convinced myself for most of my life that doing those things was scary… not so, it twas a piece of cake.
I am a little disappointed that I do not have the picture to show you of the bass that I caught fishing this weekend. It was the BIGGEST fish I have even caught!!! I will let you imagine how big it was… just picture me holding my arms out showing you the size right now.
Ps… I am doing much better with the stick shift… the trick with the clutch is to “Work it” and not “Pop it” I made up a little song about it to assist me when I get frustrated…. it has a nice hip hop beat….if I find someone to beat box for me I will give you a little performance sometime.
Pps. My MOM started a blog… called the Chronicles of Mary (see my blog list for the link). She doesn’t have much on there yet, but I am sure she will have many wonderful posts in the near future.
