Now that my only child is old enough to do most things on her own, I miss many
things in life - I've missed most of the recent theatre movies, although there were lots that interested me when I read about
them. I like doing stuff with kids...have to borrow my nieces to make a legitimate appearance at Chuck E. Cheese or the Circus.
Only been to to Six Flags once in 3 years (Titan Rocks!) although I did take daughter Lu to Fiesta Texas (Superman Rocks!).
I like Balloon and Wildflower and other local festivals, I like weekend trips to Galveston and San Antonio. Going to the River
Parade for Thanksgiving. New Orleans weekends, complete with parades and cooking lessons and shrimp po-boys. I
prefer to buy my beads rather than earn them, if you know what I mean. I want to go to
SXSW in Austin but Tax season typically interferes....
I'm big on holidays and traditions. See rabbit picture for
evidence. My office has an annual holiday on the opening day of the state fair. Sure, my daughter/friends do some of these
things with me; Like all good Texas girls, I go to antique shows and craft bazaars with my mom and BBQs at my brother's. I
have people over for swimming and, used to be, cards and dominos. Carry Uno in my purse for those occasional pockets of time
and opportunity. Art classes w/my mom & daughter. Fact is, there's not really alot that bores me if I am with someone
