I'm in Utah enjoying family time and hot, hot weather.
Heat makes me bitchy. It makes my back hump sweat, and it makes me swear.
It's not pretty.
We've had a good trip so far. The kids did great on the flight to LA. We had a great day at Six Flags Magic Mountain. We stayed with Aunt Barbara, who we all love, and had a great visit with Donna, Mary, and Grandma Mary.
We drove to Vegas, and Gretta is lucky she didn't get drop kicked on the way there. She has this high pitched squeal, and when she doesn't get exactly what she demands, when she demands it, the squeal comes out in full force. I just about lost it. But, luckily for her, I brought along some extra happy pills, and life was soon good again.
Jill's was fun, as always. She has the best drop in house. Everytime we stay there, it reminds me of my mom's, and how people just automatically felt at home there. Jill's is the same way. We also enjoyed Elise's new pool, which at 12 feet deep, is one of the funnest to dive to the bottom of.
Now we're here at the Clayton's for a week, and soon there will be a wedding to attend. Life is good. I miss my family so much. I love being here seeing them. But I think I'm making a turn for adulthood, because I miss my life in Chicago, too.
And Noel, I totally owe you for watching the ferocious beast for me. Love you long time!
