Nope, I am definitely not shopping! I stay away from places on this day. What I am going to do should be more fun.
I am going to pick up my friend/sister that I haven’t seen in a few years and we are going to drive to see my biological sister outside Huntsville TX. My niece is pregnant with a baby girl and I got her the cutest University of Houston onesies and a bib. I had a coupon thankfully. The funny part is that she goes to Texas Tech University and I am giving her clothes from a different school. Well, I think it’s funny. My mom said it’s not. Of course, my mom graduated from Tech. And I went to Tech too in 1994 so why not? I’m sure her friends there will give her all kinds of Tech baby stuff.
I haven’t seen my friend in a while or her children. She told her kids I was coming to pick her up and then I got texts from them yesterday saying Happy Thanksgiving. 😂 They grew up calling me Aunt Julie and my son calls them his cousins (one of her son’s shares a birthday with mine too). When she lived closer, I would see her more but now she lives up near Conroe and I don’t usually drive an hour just to hang out for an hour and then have to drive home. This will be more fun. I’m passing by her house anyway (I don’t have to but I obviously am) and then introducing her to part of my biological family that she’s never met since I only met them a few years ago.
Speaking of which, I truly believe they are family. I’m wondering how accurate a DNA test would be on a half sister. Does it tell us that we both have the same mother? Is it worth the cost to find out something we already (think we) know? Thoughts?
I had my nails painted on Wednesday for the holiday. It’s the same color I did last Christmastime called Santa’s Snow. I think it was more appropriate for Thanksgiving though.
We went to my cousins house for dinner yesterday. One of my cousins didn’t come down from Austin so I missed her. My cousin came down from Dallas and the other 2 sibling cousins both live here. My oldest male cousin grilled me all through dinner about keto. He is very into health. He’s thin, he works out, and he’s very private (he’s not on any social media) but he wanted to know all my personal details about it. That was fine. I told him. I also told him to email me or text me if he wants. It doesn’t bother me, mostly because he’s family but also because I remember when we were growing up, he was always nice to me which I can’t say for some of our other cousins.
My son had a good time. We walked to their house (about 3/4 of a mile from us), and my cousin decided to show us he could jump 5 people on his bike after we ate. So the kids laid down in the road along with his mother, and he jumped them (mine was in the middle so I wasn’t worried).
All and all, we had a good time. I took the mac and cheese and nobody ate it. That was frustrating. And my son left for home walking before I was ready to leave so that was irritating. But it’s okay. We are all healthy and happy. I was NOT keto yesterday. I ate a little bit of everything and it was really tasty!
I hope everyone has a great day!
