I know sometimes family time can suck ass. I feel that way about some people in my family. Not my cousin that’s visiting though! He and I are tight like siblings (we are both only children). He was raised here in Houston until he was 12 and he and I were always together at each other’s home, our grandmothers house, etc. We stayed really close throughout our lives even after his mom remarried and moved him away from me, so when he comes here or I go wherever they are living at the time, we have a blast! It’s usually all about drinking and baseball and sometimes it’s sad like when his mom passed and my dad passed.
This time it’s fun. He and his family flew in night before last and got checked in to their hotel. His wife told me that yesterday morning he dragged her to Whataburger at midnight. I didn’t see them but it was late when they arrived.
Yesterday morning, his wife text me and said she’s been following my Instagram and was wondering if we could go work out. I had woken up at 4:15am and didn’t really want to go but of course I did and it was good. By the way, crappy picture of the actual workout (I guess I was still walking). 45 minutes on the treadmill!
I took her back to her hotel and came home and decided to go jump in the pool.
Then I took my son to his therapy (after I showered of course)!
We came home and my cousin had gone to visit his dad so I watched the new Steve Martin and Martin Short show on Netflix. When that was over, it was time to drive to the hotel to meet up with them and take a Lyft to the ballgame.
We get to Minute Maid Park where the World Champions Houston Astros play at 5pm. The game didn’t start until 6:15. Cousin was glad we were early. His wife and I went shopping for jerseys and proved it probably wasn’t a great idea to have us there so early. LOL
I got a Carlos Correa jersey and she got a Jose Altuve jersey. We had a blast looking at all of them and deciding which one to get. Okay, I was not going to spend money on a jersey since I have one at home BUT I put on my jersey before I left and was able to double cross it across my body AFTER I buttoned it. Yeah, WAY too big! I’m not getting rid of it though, it’s a Jeff Bagwell jersey and I love it.
I stuck to my keto even at the game. I drank Michelob Ultra (I had 3) and had peanuts. I’m happy about that! I did end up with a few more carbs than I wanted but I’m not worried, it was 24 for a whole day.
Today, we are meeting for brunch at 11am. B had asked me to have breakfast with him but since my cousin is here and B has met him many times in the past, I told him that we will all go. Then my cousin invited his Dad which I don’t mind, I adore my uncle! That makes it 8 for lunch. We are going to dinner with my mom on Monday evening. We have to keep the actual siblings apart because they tend to fight after 30 minutes around each other. I don’t know why but they do. How my cousin and I ended up so tight with those 2, I’ll never know.
Here’s my cousin and I.
We really did have fun last night. Today they are going to the game again. I am so jealous! Before they go, his wife wants me to go work out with her again. After everything I did today, I have to go again tomorrow?
I’m sure I will. I will just stick to weights. That can’t kill me like cardio would, right? Maybe I’m just still tired.
They are here until Tuesday so I plan on having some fun while they are here.
Have a great day!
