I'm sick. Again.
Not only do I feel like crap, I also know I'll move even further and further away from my dreams of bikini-hood.
Oh, you don't know? When I get sick, I eat. It's all really gross and horrendous. Truly.
Well, at least, my illness had the good sense and courtesy to hit AFTER we met up with family and friends. Although I think the busy month of constant dining out, plus the heavy Canadian Prairie Monsoons of 2009, may have pushed me a little faster into the sick bed.
Anyway, yeah, lots of friends and family. Luckily, they came one after the other, because I don't know what I'd do if we had to entertain them one on top of the other.
Or maybe I would... Heh, heh, heh.
July 13 - Roomie's Sis and BIL
Roomie's sister and brother in law are a lovely couple, who came into town via train and ate falafels with us. Before they left, we enjoyed a big beautiful family BBQ at their brother Les' home.
This is Mini pressing her face into the screen at Les' deck during the BBQ. I'm not entirely sure why she's doing that. She might be just trying stuff. I don't know.
July 15 - The Dutch Descend
Okay, they're really more Canadian than Dutch, but because they live in The Netherlands, I'm sticking to my title. Yo! Anyway, our dear old friends from Engineering/Martini Nights/and so much more -- Casey, Kate, and their little ones -- came to town for a visit.
They, along with Harmzie and her brood (sans Max) and us, of course, gathered at our friends Mark & Sly's house, and it was like old times. While all our kids screamed and laughed, we adults "wined" and laughed. It was awesome.
I'd put a picture here of us, but I can't find one. I don't think we took any pictures... or maybe we were too drunk to do it.
July 16 - Cyndi and Mini-C
This was fun and sweet and lovely. If you didn't get a chance to read about this event, just go here.
July 18 - Zandra and the Wedding of the Year
The new Mr. & Mrs. Flores sure know how to throw a party! Reach back into the past to read about the drunken debauchery.
Okay, that's it for Week 1. Relatively tame. Stay tuned for Week 2 and the crazy sushi fest therein!
