According to TJ, his cousins drive him "bazonkers". That doesn't stop him from turning into Shecky Jordan at night and saying boarderline inappropriate things to make them all laugh. I love it.
My brilliant sister, the smartest person I know, gets incredibly freaked out in water where she can't see her feet. Never knew that. And she still swims in the lake with her kids, because that's the kind of mom she is.
My brother-in-law is a fantastic person and so much fun to be around. I already knew this but I just thought it should be said.
When you have a friend who just radiates goodness, and he has a faboo wedding to another guy who also radiates goodness, chances are it will be a fantastic wedding where you will love his friends, who also radiate goodness. Even while giving some fierce Resting Bitch Face (or RBF).
My youngest is quite possibly the sweetest kid/young man on the planet. Thoughtful, empathetic, helpful, loving. With the best nose freckles evah.
My Sean continues to be the biggest dreamboat, and the best friend, I could ever imagine. And a great person to road trip with.
And finally, I've learned that good things come to those who wait. I'm 3 years sober today. This past year has been a difficult struggle, to say the least, and it was worth every second to get me where I am today. Happy and healthy. With cute shoes. Always with cute shoes.
Oh - I also learned that a ball thwacky game thingy is called a "ding-a-ling", which really just seems kind of insulting. It should be named something much cooler. Like Knuckle Buster.
