Last night I recieved a text chastising me for the lack of recent content on my blog.
It was from my 10 year old niece, Brooklyn, and it simply stated:
"You have not posted a thing on ur blog since December 18. I'm getting bored."
Promises were made.
Charlie, Brooklyn and Kenzie on our Girl's Night
Oh the things that we've done since December 18th! Highlights:
My cat, Fang, had kittens and they are slowing sucking her soul, her energy, and her will to live. I get it, Fang. I feeeel you. But you only have to raise them for 8 weeks. Try 18 years.
(By the way, Brooklyn..there's one with your name on it! Your Dad won't mind..trust me. I'm his little sister. He owes me for accusing me of being responsible for our HOUSE BEING ROBBED when we were kids. Our house really was robbed, and they eventually caught the guy. Like I could pull that off..pshh)
We've been to Phoenix twice since I last posted. (Your Dad is going down this month for a golf trip, Brooklyn, and I think it's TOTALLY unfair that he never takes you. You should definitely pester ask him about that. He mentioned to me this weekend about plans to take you to Lethbridge. Lethbridge? Really? He can do better than that. Plant the seed, Bookie. Start now and you might get there by fall.)
Waterslides, zoo, pool, and a bit of sight-seeing...the usual!
I completed testing and earned my black stripe belt! Now I'm in black belt prep classes. (Next time I'm over, Brooklyn, I'll demonstrate a power back kick or maybe a 360 roundhouse. Your Dad can help me. I'm sure he can hold his ground against little ol' me.)
Max got his first shut out on his birthday! His team won gold in the christmas tournament, and silver in the year end tournament. (Your Dad didn't play sports much. He used to sit in his room reading encyclopedias. He grew up to be an engineer, though, then everything made sense.)
I hope this blog post un-bored you, Brooklyn! If you decide to share it with your Dad, maybe give me a head's up first.......
