Early Morning Snag or Tag

    

Hmmm....5:41 a.m. and I'm online and posting.  Things are getting back to normal, finally.

Whoo hoo, a long weekend.  I'm driving into work today because either we will get out early or I'm taking a couple of hours off.

Dinner on Saturday was very, very nice.  We went to a lovely little restaurant in Oakmont (the US open was just held there).  Anyway, it's only a couple of miles from where I grew up.

There were 9 of us.  Becky's elusive BF showed up, and I finally met him.  Actually, he is not as antisocial as I thought.  LOL...he is just very refined.  His family is extremely wealthy, and he's an only child.  (OK, Dawn, I'm not saying only children are anti-social...hehe, really I'm not.)  Anyway, it was a great time and the food was out of this world.  I had seafood festival....scallops, claims, and shrimp on linguine (sp) with a light alfredo sauce.  Out of this world.  We went back to my mom's for desert.  My brother was very well behaved, as was his wife.  I asked Becky what her BF said afterwards.  ROFL....he was a little taken aback at the way we "talked" over each other and had several conversations going on at once.  Oh well, it was a long table with a group who hadn't seen each other in a good while.  Just wait til he meets daddy's side of the famly. 

Actually, they seem like a perfect pair.  I hate to say it but my oldest is pretty but geeky.  Her BF is super cute and geeky also.  He's not as bad as I thought.  Becky fusses worse than I do and drive us all crazy but I love her to death.

Oh, and I had to crack up.  My mother was talking about old times and my cousins growing up with my brother being the only boy and me being the baby of six cousins.  My brother was a handful, to say the least.  My children asked about me.  My mom said Chrissy was the best child in the world but, boy, did she whine about everything.  The kids were laughing hysterically because nothing has changed.  See, I said I was a whiner.

TGIF!  I'll be updating my other journal this weekend.  I have some great questions to answer that Jackie sent me...Hi Jackie  <<waving>>

HUGS  CHRIS

jlocorriere05 said...

Phew! I finally made it here! Becky's BF sounds sweet, it made me laugh how taken aback he was with your conversations. If you'd all waited your turn to talk you'd probably sit there till Christmas! Lol! Sorry I've not been by lately, life has gone into overdrive here! Have a great weekend! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels
