Save the Drama for your Mama
Oh the drama. I'm so glad I'm on this reunion committee if only for the entertaining drama. And I've found that one good thing about being semi-invisible in high school is that no one expects you to get involved in the drama now either. So I can just sit back and watch. First, someone got kicked off the committee last week. Now I wasn't there of course, so I've got two different sides of the story, but the most entertaining part is that this girl is so stomping mad that she is now planning a RIVAL REUNION. Ha! She is so angry that she claims she's got a list of 200+ alumni that she refuses to share with the committee because she's inviting them to HER reunion. I told Ryan this and said, "See Ryan! My girls and I don't have ANY drama compared to this!" The other bit of drama is that there is a girl who was the original leader who was overthrown. Well, she still thinks she's in charge I think. So I get emails from her, and emails from the current leader, and its so confusing. But fun!
Anyway, besides the drama, the committee is already taking up WAY more time than I thought. But the drama is SO worth it. More drama stories to come...
I went to the doctor today. None of it was necessarily good news. I have a whole lot of tests in my near future. But I firmly believe that I'm 27, healthy, and in shape. That's all in my favor! There's only so much you can do to fight genetics, right? But I'm trying to do good stuff for my body, and that's all I can do. So send good vibes to my internals, k? (and no I'm not pregnant! don't ask!)
Mika the Monster is back in doggie training. I'm not convinced any of this is going to fix the food aggression, but at least its keeping her busy. She's back in the beginning class, so she's like a superstar compared to the other pups, so that's good for us as dog parents to see. See! She's not the most ill-behaved dog out there!
I haven't yet talked about last weekend. Well, last Fri night was Prom. And for real, we all dressed up in prom outfits. And met at Mini's parents' house for pictures. For real, just like our high school prom. We went out for dinner at just a regular place, and boy did we get looks. Then it was off to the casino for drinking and gambling, just because we couldn't do either our first time around at prom.
I'm still sadly on a picture-taking hiatus. I don't know what's wrong with me. I still carry my camera anywhere, but I'm just not pulling it out. But I do have a fun assignment for my father-in-law to do, so hopefully that will get me back into it.
OK, I'm going to drink off the day. I hope you all are making it through the week!
