The drive to Iowa this week was a long, boring drive. But I made it!
On Saturday I took my new gun to the range with my dad. We had a good time being out together, which is a nice change. Usually when I come to visit he is too stressed by all the visitors to be any fun to be around. We went to Cabela’s to buy some ammunition and they had a World War 2 display setup with some weapons and uniforms from the era and my dad taught me some things about the weapons and stuff. It was pretty cool.
Malikai is having fun here as well. He spends most of the time running and playing with a ball.
Saturday night we drove out to where my sister works and she made us a pizza. Then my mom started to get a little freaked out by the severe thunderstorm warning so she wanted to get home quickly. I tried to get her home quickly in the Mustang, but she got freaked out when the tires started to squeal on the highway entrance ramp.
Today the plans are to go to my mom’s RN pinning and then spend some time with my sisters who moved out. It has been odd to not get to see them much, but family politics are what they are…
Last night I saw fireflies, which is pretty cool. I have not seen a firefly in years. So I broke out my camera and all my stuff to get a picture, only to realize I FORGOT MY TRIPOD MOUNT! :-/ So much for me trying to get a photo of the ISS flying over tomorrow morning.
Hmm, anything else? Oh yeah, my parents have a demonic evil cat that hates me and clawed me pretty good this morning.
