Two weekends

I mean to post more often than this. I just get distracted.

Last weekend was our 5th annual Turkey in July party. We had a houseful of folk, and a metric ton of food. Everyone had a grand time, I think. Im amazed that we have managed to do it for five years running. I dont think anyone has actually made it to all five, excluding Ninsi and I. The only downside is the cleanup. And finding turkey carcass in the oven four days later. That was unpleasant.

The day after the party, we went to see the latest Harry Potter movie. Then drove to OK. The Squid wishes to start school here for the Fall semester, so we ran her back up to her mom so they could spend the rest of the Summer together. School starts in Dewey a week from today. But not here for three more weeks. It isn't a done deal yet, and we are still trying to make it all happen.

A few weeks ago, we had planned a family weekend to San Antonio. Neither the Squid nor myself had ever been there. We went on Priceline.com and found a hotel and had to go ahead and pay for it. We still had the hotel reserved even though the Squid was in OK, so Ninsi and I drove down to SAT ourselves on Friday and just made it a weekend getaway for ourselves. Did the Riverwalk thing and the Alamo thing, which was plenty for the two of us. Maybe someday we'll try again as a family thing and go to SeaWorld. Im not sure SAT has too much to offer outside of all that.

Possible trip up to OK this weekend. I'm bout tired of all this driving.
