Sunday with the Parents [Jul. 25th, 2004|10:59 pm]
Well, I definitely surprised my family when I showed up Saturday afternoon. Stopped at my sister's place first. Chatted with my sister and her husband for a while then headed to my parents place.. Of course they werent home. I waited around for about 2 hours, then headed back to my sister's place. Finally around 9:30pm, my parents got home. When I called to check to see if they were home yet, my mom heard my niece crying in the background. She asked where I was at.. I said "At Tammmie's". If I would have been outside, I'm sure I would have heard her scream that far.
Today , was a family picnic at my parents house. got to see some of my aunts, uncles, cousins that I havent seen since my grandfather's funeral last December. It was good to catch up with everyone. Two of my aunts overstayed their welcome though. It was almost 10pm when they left. I can only stand to be around them for a few hours at the most. So I grabbed a cigar, sat outside on the front porch watching the stars in the distance and listening to the horses and cows run in the fields. Was a nice night to do that.
Now sitting here waiting to see if Dad is gonna sign on before heading to bed. Hopefully chat with him a bit before I head to bed.
All in all.. a good trip home. but will be glad to head back home to Dallas tomorrow.
