It’s a Family Tradition!



Had dinner with the bestest of friends.

It had been about 13 years since we all hung out and my beautiful friend, Lisa was more than thrilled to have both of ‘her boys’ at dinner.  
We made our way over to the Tree and it was so weird to see the changes they have made to the place, but it still looked and felt the same.
We sang along with Jerry when he sang Family Tradition and even danced when he sang Margaritaville. So many amazing, wonderful and beautiful memories of hanging out with my crew from when I was in college.
Lisa rode from dinner with Dale and she said, “He values your friendship so much.”  It made me feel good too.  If we were allowed to pick one person in this world to be a sibling, he would have been my brother. Hell, we would have been twins!  
We are planning a trip to Vegas at the end of September to see Lionell Richie. Well, *I* am going to see Lionell, he’s going to hang out with my friend Sammy and do some pub crawling.
That’s the only downfall to Las Vegas trips is that I want to spend the whole time with my brother and sister in law.  The last time we went, I had the BEST trip of my life.  The best times were when we were in the truck driving somewhere singing Uptown Funk or some Jason Derulo song.  It’s when I am with my family that I have some of the greatest laughs.

This trip I will get to see them a little bit, but I keep promising to go hang out with Sammy and she keeps calling me on me being flaky.
In my defence, I work Monday through Friday and I did take an unexpected vacation.  I am dreading having to tell Bruce that I am going to take a Friday and a Monday off for this one, but I am giving a couple months warning.
Next year I am going to have to tell him I am taking 2 weeks to go to Ireland.  That will go over like a fart in church.

Staying positive lately. Last night I got ANOTHER call about something that was said about me and my daughter from a friend. I’m going to have to tell her about the rumor that he spreading. I had hoped my conversation with him years ago and the one recently would have cleared up the problem, but that clearly isn’t the case.
He’s also saying some pretty wicked things about me in a class he is in and it’s getting relayed back to my brother. I wish it would just stop, but he’s mentally unhealthy and it’s not worth the trouble to ask him to stop. If there is one thing I could go back and undo it would be staying in contact with him and letting him back into my life.  A mistake I will never make again. Ever.

I'm a lot of things, but mostly I'm just Random and Odd.
