Did I mention that my blogaversary came and went on October 5th? No? That is because I suck. And I am busy lately. So anyways, happy blogaversary to me. Yay.
Speaking of overwhelmingly busy...
The prospect of this weekend is making me tired.
Today I am cleaning house and packing bags. Next week is my Mom's 55th birthday and we are going to Merced for a get together with family tomorrow. My Mom is the oldest of six children in her family. She has one brother and four sisters. Guess what? (This is the part where I seriously hope that my Mom does not read my blog...) All six of them are going to be in Merced. SURPRISE Mom, if you are reading this...
Two of her siblings actually live in Merced, so obviously they are not a surprise. She knows that one of my aunts is making the drive from San Diego, but she is completely unaware that not only is her other sister from San Diego coming, but so is her sister from Florida!!!!! She is going to be soooo freakishly excited. The last time all six of them were together was at my Grama's funeral six years ago.
So here is my weekend, in a nutshell:
Saturday early morning I go to pick up my mom and we drive the hour and a half to Merced. I get to spend a whopping four hours at my Aunt's house, then I have to leave for work. I will drive the two and a half hours to Sausalito, work for six hours, stay the night there, wake up and work until 5:30pm, drive the two and a half hour drive BACK to Merced hang out with the family until Monday morning, then drive the hour and a half drive home to Sacramento. I am exhausted just thinking about all that driving. Seriously.
What have I got myself into???
I know it is all going to be worth it just to see the look on my Mom's face when she realizes that all her sisters and her brother are going to be there...I just wish that I was not working for most of the weekend. (Calling in sick is NOT an option...)
On a completely unrelated note, I waited 17 years to go to a New Kids On The Block concert, since I was grounded for their tour through Sacramento way back then. I did not go to the concert last night. Sad face. I am just fine pretending like that did NOT happen. Let's all put on our big girl faces and pretend like they aren't on tour...yeah, yeah...good idea!
