More like WEAK in iPhone or RANDOM photo post. I don’t have a lot to show as far as what’s on my iPhone.
I worked pretty hard all week. Finished my 16 bag order and delivered them all!!!! WEEEEEEEEE! More on that later.
But, after I delivered on Friday, I really enjoyed the weekend! I spent time with my niece and nephews. I spent time with my family and friends! I went to the county fair and watched The Godfather in it’s entirety for the first time.
To juice up this post, I thought I’d include a few photos I took at the fair with my real camera!
We had so much fun! As we always do. The county fair has become a tradition. We go with my Father EVERY year. This year was exceptionally fun. I feel like the fair was just set up really well this year, and felt almost cleaner than usual. I dunno, how to explain it. But, it was pretty great. We rode rides, took my nephew Hudson on a ride. We ate delicious, huge corn dogs! and soft serve ice cream dipped in chocolate.
We met up with friends! Family friends! I can say that now, right? My Brother had worked with the father of this family for YEARS, I can’t even say when they became friends but is has been some time. They now each run their own plumbing companies, and live about a block away from each other. His wife, Laurette and my Sister in law have also been great friends for some time now too. And, I have recently wedged my way into their family friend dynamic and become regular part time nanny/babysitter to their 3 children. So, we got to meet up with them, and it was really fun to all hang out together. I got a little sappy when my Dad was holding the little 1 year old boy that I watch every week, while we were all on a ride. It was just fun to all be together. I really love moments like that. When 2 of your normally separate worlds collide. It’s pretty warm and fuzzy.
Also notable… I held a SCORPION at the fair. And thankfully Laurette, captured it.
It took some coaxing… Like, the handler telling me that these guys are basically the wimpiest of all scorpions and that if and when they do sting it’s less painful than a bee sting. Not sure how it worked. Because thinking about it, a bee sting still totally freaks me out! And I usually hate anything bug like and creepy crawly. But, it worked. I had fun. I was nervous at first, but I think by the end of it I had a fondness for that creepy thing. I think I sort of want one now….
Just a a little nostalgia for a Tuesday afternoon.
I was cleaning up my MySpace page, basically removing all content since I can’t fully delete it. And as I was going through my old blogs on there I started to regret it. I had a LOT of entries…I forgot how much I actually used that thing. Most of it was pretty silly and I just felt embarrassed reading it. But, a lot of my post contained photos of that time. Sooooo, I thought it would be fun to step back into the time machine today and share some photos of myself and my friends in the mid to lateish-2000′s. I know not even THAT far back. But, I can and will go further back another day… I was mostly just very entertained with the changes that I went through during that just over 2 year span, and thinking about the changes I’ve gone through since then. I do wish I had kept some of the writing that went along with the photos now, but, too late to dwell on silly mistakes. (besides, my live journal content is still safe). For now:
