Weekend Recap

We spent this past weekend in Ohio with various family members.  Below are some notes that I gathered during this time.

Sleeping in the car may not be comfortable, but sometimes it is necessary.  Sirius Radio is a welcome addition while driving through the lack-of-radio-signal mountains.  Radiation is hard on body and mind.  Laughter can sometimes be the best medicine.  Memories are made despite the circumstance, negative or positive.  Unsolicited advice can sometimes be on the right track.  

Having an actual designated driver (not just for intoxicated situations) can make all the difference.  I have to believe that sometimes my mom knows she'll get made fun of for saying/doing something, but she does it anyway for our amusement.  On occasion, Chinese food can be awesome.  Falling asleep together on the couch, when everyone else leaves is love.

My brother is far more evil than I had ever thought.  Revenge is coming, buddy boy, when you least expect it.  My cousin's wedding was beautiful.  How'd she grow up so fast?  Tights are necessary for a church ceremony, but not for the reception.  Wine that sounds like biscotti is really, really good.  At one point in my life, I hope to not care what others think about me...just like my mom all times.  When all else fails, you can use a ballpoint pen to put your hair up.  Sometimes watching is more fun than participating.  I never thought in a million years that I would teach my mom to Wobble, Wop, Macarena, and Bernie.
