Family Celebrations

April and May have been crazy around here as we celebrated three birthdays, two graduations, a graduation party, Mother's Day dinner, and spontaneous crab and shrimp dinners complete with fireworks.  The cooking, dishes, and laundry have seemed endless.

Tonight was the last of the family get-togethers as Dylan and Leigh Anne came over for dinner to eat crab legs, shrimp, and sausage since they couldn't make it yesterday when everyone else came.

Today Laurel and I planned the meals for the Fripp trip next week.  I am SO ready to get out of town!  I'm packing my beach trash books, about two changes of clothes, my toothbrush, deodorant, and hairbrush and that's about it.  And my computer, of course.  Can't let my blogroll build up!

We leave Sunday afternoon and get back the next Sunday for night church.  I hope to be in a near catatonic state for most of the week.  The spring is always hectic with end-of-the-year concerts, recitals, etc.  This one seemed worst than most, but Laurel reminded me that I always say that!  What would I do without her to bring me back to Earth?  Thanks, hon! (Not)

Have fun. I hope you get some well deserved rest!

Ah, and there's another quintessential Southern moment--fireworks at dusk. (Not to mention shorts in May.)

I like your new header, too.

Have a good trip!

I like the new header and the word catatonic. :)
You know you need me to tell me what you need to hear. haha. I can't wait for Fripp!!!
Speaking of beach reads, do you know about the Susan Vreeland book about the Renoir painting? I can't think of it's name and am too lazy to go look. Anyway, it was on clearance yesterday at Books a Million. I just started it. Do you want it for the beach?
