Busy Month...part 2

I haven't written in awhile….I’m afraid I’m being lazy, or perhaps, just too involved in various things. Like I said, the month of May has been quite a busy month!

Well, I finally got to the mall and got Andrew his suit for confirmation.

Just imagine the suit you see here in white and lavender. Apparently, this is not a joke- the suit pictured here is considered “high fashion” in the website I found.

No, I did not buy this suit for Andrew---I’m joking. He is wearing black slacks, and a grey pin-striped sports jacket, because according to him it looks “gangster”. That’s as “gangster” as we are going to get. Oh, and he is wearing a tie---Andrew of all people picked it out. This surprised me-my little boy is growing up! The whole shopping experience went very quickly. Andrew is so tall and thin, everything looks good on him, and is very easy to shop for. My mom bought some black loafers-she insisted to contribute in some way. I think she really thought I would let him get confirmed in white basketball sneakers. Confirmation day is Sunday-I will post pictures.

My step-son, Matt had a prom last Saturday-he looked very handsome, and his grandparents were here from out of state to see him off. I won’t post his picture, until his mother gets a look at them. He has another prom this Saturday, and Andrew has a performance for that day too. He and his “crew” were told that they could perform at another café in town. I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but Andrew and his friends make beats, and sing rap. It’s not my favorite type of music, but Andrew really enjoys writing and performing. Hope to see him perform this weekend—will try and record it and post it.

Oh, and have I mentioned that Tania is back with us? Yes, she flew in from Portugal earlier this month. So, I have my “other” daughter staying with us now—but she is so busy all the time, she is like Lizzy—comes and goes. Sometimes there are days when I just see them zoom by in the hallway. They are older and going on with their busy and eventful lives…going to the beach, jumping in pools, road trips.. It must be nice. We’ve had some great weather the past few weeks, so they might as well enjoy it.

So, the month isn’t over yet, and I think June is going to be even busier.

We have a high school graduation (Matt’s), end of school, swimming lessons, Andrew’s birthday and a family reunion on my husband’s side in Laughlin, Nevada. His family from Texas will be there, and I’m looking forward to meeting them all. According to my mother-in-law, it will be a real treat, and I’ll probably leave the reunion with a Texan accent. I adore Texas accents-it shall be interesting y’all.

Love the suit, LOL. I just read both posts at once. Your photos are great, gee, no boxer shorts! I love your header picture. Everyone seems so busy. I will be that way once my grandkids get here.

I'm sooo relieved thats not the suit he getting! LOL

You are a busy person. Doesn't look like it will calm down in the next month either.

You'll need a vacation when summer's over.

Have a good one.

Suits like the green one is what they end up burying those "wannabee" gangsters in. It's high fashion to some, ghetto to most.

You made a good choice as to what you ended up buying for Andrew.

For a minute I thought you actually did get Andrew the pimp outfit (laughing). Nice to see logic kicked in and he picked something even better.

Sounds like this month has been close to racing past on you dear friend. (Hugs)Indigo
