Imagine arriving to your High School Graduation on a church bus with 30 plus family members. Now add to the mortification: a sign with your name and having your father pull up to the front door so that you and your family members could unload. Welcome to the beginning of my cousin’s high school graduation. We also chanted Leigha! Leigha! Leigha!
I have to say that yes it probably was very embarrassing for Leigha, but she got to ride to her graduation with her entire family: Mom, Dad, brother, grandparents, aunts, uncles, a slew of cousins and one brave friend. A freaking BUS load! How special is that? VERY! It rocked. We all traveled from Georgia, Alabama and Indiana just to be there for her on her special day. Scott and I drove for 12 hours, got lost in Birmingham, and sat through 3 trains at 2 in the morning just to be there to watch her walk across the stage. I have to say that my family has its flaws, but damn we rocked this weekend.
The weekend overall was really good. It had its moments where Scott and I wanted to strangle my parents, but it did teach us some valuable lesson that will come in handy for the wedding. I never realized how hard it would be to NOT automatically DO what my parents wanted. Example: just letting them decided where and when we are going to eat.
Ugh, I never knew deciding on a place to eat would be so hard.
The lesson learned: Scott’s wants and needs come before my parents. (who knew I would have to be taught that?)
Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day! Only 4 days left of this workweek and then next week I start my new position. I can’t wait.
I should have some book reviews on the way. I finished 2 books (one I just loved) and started on another that is just amazing.
