Good afternoon!

So far, I have accomplished the grocery shopping and some gardening. I'm going to take a nap in a bit, as I was up most of the night with a headache, and it was too hot to sleep. I put the A/C on today. My mom will be here this evening to spend the weekend with me.

My mom has a cousin, who disappeared about 30 years ago. All she new was that he went out west. His father, was my grandmother's eldest brother, who was a mean drunk. His brothers were both drug addicts, who died during the 1980's. Both were found dead in their cars in separate instances. After his mother died, he and his wife just left. I did some research, and found a guy about the same age living in AZ. My mom has another cousin living in AZ, so she had her send him a letter. He called the cousin yesterday, and today they are meeting for lunch! He said he did not have any photos from his childhood, or of his parents, so I emailed copies to the cousin who is meeting him. This is pretty exciting for our family!

Today a bunch of friends are having a potluck lunch and I may attend if I can figure out what to bring. :unsure:
Pot?

Nice! He's probably psyched to find out that he has some nice relatives out there. :yes:

No, but we got new shocks in the form of finding the the front axle was cracked as well. :no:

^^ I'm sorry to hear that. It sounds like a very expensive fix. :no:

No 'pot' at the potluck, RJ, but the frozen chocolate-peanut butter ice cream pie I brought was a HUGE hit :D

Cayla, you certainly have an interesting family history! How cool about meeting this long lost cousin. :yes:

Hello :hello:

We've had some pretty bad thunder storms the past couple of days, so I stayed home. Puttered around the apartment.

Plus a night of little to no sleep has me dragging. Hoping to get a good night's sleep tonight.
