A little bit of this, a little bit of that

So let's see.  It's been awhile again since I've posted.  Not sure of everything that has happened since then but I do know there's been a few things.

One was that we went for a bike ride a couple weeks ago and crashed into each other.  I took a tumble and scraped up my elbow.

That's the night it happened right after it was washed up and neosporin was put on, hence all the shine. 

This is one week later after it had time to scab up.  This is right after a bath where I let it soak for awhile.  Which is why the scabs are light in color rather than scabby looking.  Hee  I peeled those off and put some neosporin on right after. 

It's looking really good now.  Just pink skin in a few spots.

My brother who had married a woman from the Philippines back in 2004 who brought her two daughters with her has now divorced her.  It's been coming for a long time really so no one surprised when it finally happened but we're all very very sad because she's been working in New York city for the last year.  So now that they're divorced she took her daughters with her.  We were all tearing up pretty darn good when we were saying our goodbyes a few weeks ago. 

BUT, we just found out that she's letting them come back for a couple weeks vacation with him and his two kids from his first marriage.  They're going to go camping for a couple weeks at the end of July.  I'm hoping HDT and I can go as well during the weekend they'll be there.  We shall see.

Mother's Day, my mom's birthday, and Father's Day have all happened since my last entry.  We took our moms out to our favorite Chinese restaurant for Mother's Day and then for some ice cream afterward for desert.  Went back to my mom's house to visit for a little while longer before finally heading out around 9ish. 

My mom's birthday was last Thursday and we and my brother Wayne and his family took her to a local pizza joint for dinner.  Afterward they left for home and Mom, HDT and I sat around the campfire for a little while.  HDT eventually left because he was so tired but I hung out until almost 11pm.  Scott showed up with his daughter for a few minutes before he had to take her home.  And the girls called from New York unexpectedly so that was really nice.

Turns out my Aunt Lori got married that day as well.  Not only did the sparks fly with her husband at my mom's house the year before but then they get married on her birthday.  Very happy for them all.

Yesterday for Father's Day we took his dad and stepmom to the same Chinese restaurant.  It was their first time there, they really enjoyed it.  Enough that they ordered a whole other dinner to take home for later.  Then we went to see Snow White and the Huntsman.  We all enjoyed it.  I liked how dark it was and thought Kristen Stewart did a good job.  We stood around talking in the parking lot for about an hour before we finally said our goodbyes for the night.

Hmmm, what else?  Actually I think those were the most significant things.  We've been working hard as usual.  We've slacked on exercising but I fully plan on getting back into it this week.  Less than a month before my work's manager's meeting and I'd like to be down 10 lbs if at all possible before I meet all these people I've been talking on the phone with since January. 

My oldest nephew is in town for the week.  We all plan on getting together tomorrow to play some Whirlyball and have some fun.  Saturday we plan on a family gathering at my mom's house for more food and merriment.  Then later who ever wants to will go to our house to watch the UFC fights. 

So that's about it for now.  See ya.
