Oh yeah. We're home.


We spent the weekend with my adorable niece and nephew, and their awesome parents Sierra and Rory. We hit up NY state watering holes, and had awesome Mexican food, and ended up dancing all night in a gypsy tent with old people to hip hop remixes of Renegade.

It was pretty much awesome.

I'll have more to say and a picture post later, but right now I am super brain ded.

So Alex flew up for Texxy's graduation party.

We haven't seen each other face to face since our big blow out and it was jlahsdfgdfsjh awesome. Wonderful.

Like family was home.

And Tex's graduation was pretty awesome too. Thing were bittersweet, and the whole week was very emotional, but it was also very wonderful.

My grandmother passed away yesterday. She was my mom's step mom but always, always family. We were all very close, and I loved her a hell of a lot. I haven't seen her for a year and a half, since we went to AX, but we had a really nice lunch then, just her and I.

She was a strong, wonderful person, and I know she has missed my Papa Dave since he past...years ago now. And just been...sort of done living. But I'm still gonna miss her like crazy. She was something special.

I have weirdly been thinking a lot about her lately. The story about her giving me the Vampire Armand and being like "Enjoy, it's pretty much gay porn!:)" Came up like...twice in the last week or so. And my brains has just been...IDK. Back in the house at Estralita a lot.

I don't know if I'm going to the funeral. I'd rather get my mother out there for a longer amount of time to spend with her siblings, then go out myself, but I also don't want to not be with her.Plus there is family politics if I don't go that once upon a time I think my family did not have not so true anymore. I don't think they would understand wanting to mourn in my own way. I also just...don't do well with death. I was...ok, at Sarah's grandmother's funeral,but barely and I didn't know her.

Yesterday was my mom's birthday. We had Tea at the Brown Palace which was pathetic and over priced ($119 for 3 people. It was in the lobby, which granted was a beautiful lobby, but also loud and awkward. And the food was delicious but you honestly got about half a plate for that much money. And the tea itself was nothing special.) But it made my mom happy, and she doesn't seem to be letting Grandma Jo's passing ruin that for her.

So this is my report of the trip. Mainly in picture. However, this is a small sampling of the 529 picture available, and Ju is a wonderful photographer of places, so if you're interested in more pics, lemme know.

Image heavy but awesome. In this post is us traveling the US, me facing my greats fear, and my leet pigeon catching skills.

Road tripping with my 2 favorite allies, fully load we've got snack and supplies... )

Last night I'm laying in bed almost asleep listening to one of the kids running laps down stairs when Ju elbows me and goes "did you here that?"

I say "jfjfguuuur derp." Which she figured out was "it's just the kids."

And she's like "'s 3am and they've been asleep since we got home. And it's coming from above us."

Which was weird being as how we were in the attic.

Both babies were sleeping with their parents and there was no way they'd be running laps at 3am (at least not without us hearing a LOT more then them running laps. Like their parents killing them for running around at 3am) And with the way the house was made like...there's no way we wouldn't know if everyonr else was up (so corbin couldn't be running laps with out his mom noticing...especially if we could hear them.

It wasn't scary and sierra had told us shed heard it before but it was crazy. We had also been shushed earlier in the night and I wonder now about that too (it wasn't...rude or undeserved just sorta ooc for sierra)

I will grab you back ASAP.

I am having a ball being an Auntie, and all the fun that goes with it (Corbin just walked past with his head buried in the box of currants going "I LIKE THESE!") Kyra was super shy at first but now3 is like "Terra, look at this! Terra read me this!" and it is adorable. She really loves Ju and Sarah too. Also, my Counsin-in-law (?) Rory IS Dean (Which apparently my cousin gets told ALL the time since we were talking about Supernatural and she was like "...oh, yeah a bunch of people say...."). 

It's pretty awesome.

New York is beautiful, and we're going into the city tomorrow, but I am fully antsy to get home as well. I miss Bev like whoa.
penguinfaery: (random-twins-wow we're identical!)
My mom brought home a disc of old picture from my family. Oh man.

My mom and I look alike. My dad looks like Hyde.

And my grandma looks like Bellatrix Lestrange, and my Uncle Tim looks like Sam Winchester, so I feel they must battle now. )

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Soooo all my extended family lives in California (Or Illnois, or Australia) so I was a very sad little girl at Thanksgiving cause it was usually me and my dad at Country Buffet. (It is still ususally me and my dad, but now it's at his friends, or girlfriends, and it has created a lot of good...or at least interesting thanksgivings. Like the Mamopuff Incident.

Anyway, because of this, my mom suggested that we hold a Thanksgiving of our own, with all my friends. I am very much a person who believes family is what you make it And really have never seen the opposite work too well :/ My big, related family is all full of step siblings and half siblings that are as much related as the people I share blood with, and I can guarantee I'm way closer to my girls then any of my cousins. So family is...what your family is, not who you're related to.

So arund Thanksgiving (This time it's Saturday) I have my big family dinner, and it's always something that's made me so ridiculously happy, and reminds me of what really matters, and is everything Thanksgiving should be (Except Thursday)
penguinfaery: (random-picard-wtf is this shit)
So, me and mom just had one of our knock down drag out fights, and things are IDK better-ish. We'll see how much our solutions stick.

We also figured out that neither of us know what to do about Aunt Kathy, and that's why it' causing such issues.

Gah, life.

Also, I think I am going to my [ profile] string_theories my muse box thing.

Also, i feel like a big jerk. After me and mom argued, we were poking fun at the random Chainsaw in our living room.

And I picked it up, and kicked open the door yelling something appropriately aggressive at Bev....

...Who was fast asleep.

Or had been until I burst in yelling with a chain saw.

It wasn't on, at least.
