To quote my brother and one of my cousins "UPDATE!"
However, I won't follow with some of their random "updates". Since I spent yesterday with my brother and cousins Chris and Julie, they have worn off on me a bit.
However, I am going to go back to this weekend, which was dancing. It was wonderful and so much fun. I hung out quite a bit with the awesome scarlett71177
. I should have pictures soon. Some the dances are on youtube too.
It was very hot on Thursday, Friday and Saturday when we danced. It wasn't as hot on Sunday, but we were all so wiped out by then. We were a bit giggly during parts of it. I know everyone was tired, even me, but I'd LOVE to do it again. I wouldn't have traded it for anything! Pictures hopefully will follow soon (a real camera was used so it has to be developd and hopefully I will soon do a post of just pictures I keep meaning to put up).
I also met with Julie (the one who got married just last month) and we hung out for an hour or so on Sunday. I was exhausted, but it was nice to see her.
The other day, I saw "Hairspray". I have yet to see the original, but I knew the opening song (it is on one of my Broadway collection CDs). It was good. I was a bit surprised about some of it, but mostly because of the topics and some of the things said. Even though it was a movie, it isn't something you get used to hearing.
Our dance group was small on Tuesday, just six of us. We did warm up, went through the songs and then watched the videos and looked at the pictures, as well as laughing and joking.
Yesterday, I drove down with Paul and Mom to go to Detriot. Actually, Allen Park, but almost no one knows where that is. That is where my Aunt Marie, Uncle Wally and cousins Chris and Angela live. We were goofy on the way down. Paul was with me and my mom drove her car too (since she is staying til Sunday and we came back last night). Paul slept a bit and then we listened to Price is Right on the radio. Yes, it is from a station in Lansing, and was quite funny to do.
We got in and decided to go to IMAX. Yet, when we got there, Chris and Paul decided to go see the movie at 6:10 instead of 2:05 and that then we could go through the Henry Ford Museum (Chris works there for special events as a bartender so he got us in for free). We played guitar hero there and saw the special exhibit "Rock Stars, Cars and their Guitars." Then we looked at other things. We even sat in the same bus Rosa Parks made her stand in and we had our picture taken in that exact seat. Then we saw the chair Lincoln was in that fateful night at the theater. There is just so much there.
The boys went back to Chris' while Julie and I stayed a bit longer. Then we all met again and had an early dinner at "On the Border" (Mexican restaurant). After that, the boys went somewhere while Julie I stopped in at Best Buy. I bought the "Order of the Phoenix" CD. Then we all met and went to the movie. It was a lot of fun and the 3D was awesome. There were three parts that just made me gasp, I felt like I was there. It starts right after Luna's "We fly of course". All the way until Harry is packing, after the final Daily Prophet headlines/stories. The three parts were the thestrals, right after Ginny uses "Reducto!" and also the glass during the final part of the battle.
Julie went home after that, then the three of us went to Aunt Marie's. It was not a good moment with my mom. I won't go into details, but it really dashed at the excitement I was feeling.
Paul and I drove back (and can I say construction on 23 was crazy?) and got in a bit before midnight. Ii was tired since I drove the whole time. That leads to today. Nothing big is happening. It is kind of blah outside too. Ah well.
Oh in other news, since my mom forgot to get Saber her medicine, she has been doing better! How odd is that? She comes into the living room now and we even played a bit the other day. She was a lot like before. Very interesting, I think.
