Hello family!

Last weekend my Gramzy and aunt to stay with us for the weekend. Mostly because we would be dropping Gramzy off at the airport at 4am Monday morning.

My aunt had told me to plan the weekend full of fun things to do so I thought we would go to the Irish festival on Saturday then play Sunday by ear. When the got here we ended up staying home all weekend playing at the park and visiting. Lea and Gramzy were both super moody. Gramzy because shes been away from home for 2 weeks and is tired. Lea because of her teeth.

It was a nice weekend. My aunt and I went and saw a house which made me feel much better about buying a house with her. We are looking for the same things and she finally listened when someone told her to get her shit together and get a pre-approved loan before really looking. One step forward.
We also went and saw a movie together, Elysium. Good movie. Violent and a decent story line. I had a few problems with it but it was worth the price to see on the big screen.

Next weekend Im family free on Saturday. My aunt is trying to rope me in to going to some obscure relatives wedding anniversary party on Sunday but I preparing my excuses.

Weekend after next I'll be heading back over to WI to go to the Renn fair! I will be meeting up with my mom, my sister, my brother, and 2 of my best friends. Its going to be a good time. I love Renn fairs. I would go every weekend if I could. I went to my first one when I was about 6 or 7, had a blue dragon painted on my face, and it was the first time I remember telling people "Im a boy" (because I was a HUGE tom boy growing up) and instead of adults arguing with me they said "Well of course you are, here is your sword, go kill that giant over there". It was all fun and games but I felt normal being with ridiculous people.

I cant decide if Im going to dress up or not. If I dont my sister wants to borrow my costume. I wish I could get a new costume so we could both dress up... but I need to buy new work cloths so the dress up stuff needs to wait.


  1. Pretty sure I've seen that costume at least once over the last 6 or 7 years. You look pretty damned good in it. You must dress for the occasion if the Renaissance fairs are your thing! I'm not sure you'd get as much out of it as you would by dressing normal. Your next few weeks are so well planned - I need to get with it and set some stuff in stone as well.


  2. I agree, going in the appropriate attire is important. Sounds like an amazing weekend as well. Let's chat.
