Mama sent out an email to the family about me not going on the weekend WIU trip:
Gail won't be coming with on our Western trip! She's going to a graduation party on Friday night instead... one she really, really, really wants to go to. I tried to lay the guilt trip on her, but Butch took her side and said she should go to the party. I think he does that to irritate me, but I didn't let it bother me, as we all know, life's too short! We'll have a good time without her! Gail - I'm sure you'll get tired hearing about our fun trip :o)
The amount of stuff wrong in that paragraph is too much to handle. One, that she thinks this is a big deal. And damn her for taking a blow at my father. Whatever, I'm staying home, and that's all that matters. And my cousin Annette responded saying I made the right choice. Damn straight.
In related news, my mother sends out far too many emails.
I'm thinking I'm going to sit around and watch movies all day.
Oh! And I may have mentioned this, but my best friend Allie and I are holding a party on Saturday. It's at her house, and hopefully, it's going to be huge. All of her friends, all of my friends, all of our mutual friends. It'll be fantastic. I'm excited.
Plus!! That means that we get to go shopping for party supplies on Saturday!! We are both huge organizing geeks (like my markers are in rainbow order, etc.) so planning a party is a dream come true. We're discussing it later today (after her two finals...AHAHAHAHA) and making finalized plans. Whee! Party!
