Family Reunion was a bust.

I ended up babysitting at Fiesta, Tx in San Antonio, TX. I was still over the weight limit for the rides. Since I got ditched by my sisters, nephews, and cousins; I went to the water park for an hour to sun tan. (My swim suits are a bit baggie… As are my new 22/24 sized clothes…)

Then, spent the rest of the day caring for my cousin’s kids:

Bexton – 3 month old belongs to my Florida Cousins

Ezerah “E” – 18 month old belongs to my Idaho Cousins

Taylor “Tay-Tay” – 22 month old belongs to my Angleton Cousins

Zoey – 3 yr old belongs to my Fort Hood Cousin

Savanah – 7 yr old belongs to my California Cousins

My (21 yr old) nephew being the nice and wonderful kid he is… Offers to take Tay-Tay’s family back to their apt in Angleton, Tx on Sunday; which is 1 hr and 30 mins on the SW side outside of Houston.

My Aunt from Idaho wanted us to have a family dinner the last night we were there… We end up leaving San Antonio, Tx about 10pm… Making it to Angleton by 1:30a-ish, and to Houston about 3am…

I get home, my dogs have to be fed and let them outside to go potty… I get finished and can finally go to bed about 5am, only to have to be to up and at work at 9am…

Ya, yesterday morning was chaotic…

Last night, My sis finally gets home (from San Antonio) and we go eat dinner. We get back home and we were home for about an hour before there’s a knock at the door. My sis tells me, “Oh, by the way… I invited our cousins from North Caroline to spend 3 weeks with us, before they go to Idaho for a few weeks.” I woman up and invite my cousins in…

My cousin’s kid is my age, but has Down Syndrome and is terrified of dogs… I have 4 dogs in my house… Imagine the type of ‘fun’ I get to have for the next 3 weeks…

The highlights of my weekend was getting tons of compliments from my family members on the visible weight loss and for my cards going for $64 for the set!

    I think I would have lost another 10 pounds taking care of the kids or gain it drinking margaritas afterwards! And now you have company for 3 weeks- you are a saint- I think you should eat and do whatever you want- it won't matter cause you are working so hard!
    Congratulations on the cards! emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you had your hands full! I think I would have lost my mind with a day like that and so many kids. Good job on keeping your sanity!
