What I Learned From This Weekend.


  • Seeing family again is nice.
  • Seeing said family at a theme park makes it nicer.
  • Said family will not understand about schedules, time tables, or keeping to an itinerary.
  • Some people will not watch their own children.
  • Same people will expect everyone else to watch their children.
  • Same said people will take you for granted.
  • Meeting new family who will soon marry in (New MIL) is great.
  • Some people will do their darnedest to try & make a trip that is supposed to be about one family member all about themselves instead.
  • Those people suck.
  • If you're the family member who is doing the best financially, everyone else will expect you to absorb all incidental costs.
  • Go carts are crazy.
  • Go carts that go down a 45 degree slope into a 32 degree banked turn scare the shit out of middle aged roller derby queens!
  • Said Roller Derby Queen's 14 year old will suddenly become a racing enthusiast and slam you into the wall!
  • Discovering a gluten free beer at Margaritaville that actually tastes as good as the beer you used to drink before diagnosis is the shizz yo!
  • Spending a day with just your family easily erases extended family's fuckery and stupidity!
  • Taking great photos of your favorite boys riding their favorite coaster (above) totally kicks ass! (and is cheaper than the theme park's $14.99 souvenir!)
  • Coming home to furry babies who missed you is awesome!
And now back to your regularly scheduled week!

What was the name of the GF beer? Mitch is looking for one.

Glad your weekend was mostly good. With family sometimes you just have to ignore stuff.
