today was work.. that was okay. it was only a few hours and i survived. then off to Tristia's parents to spend time with the extended family. It was good times except that i am having HORRIBLE cramps. I got to sit with the women while Tris, her bro, their dad, and her cousin played this game bache (bahchee) ball. We chitchatted and they talked shit about the members who had already left and it was good to feel included. Never have we talked like we did today and it was sort of nice. Then we left to go shopping and get some needed supplies for the house. Then back to her parents to shoot off fireworks. Her brother and her cousin set off fireworks and she soon joined in. I sat with her mother and we talked about all sorts of things. SMILES. She's not so bad, really. Now we are home and she is going to sleep and I will be too, soon. Just wanted to do some things online first. Tomorrow we get our 3 billion pictures from WalMart if they are done. I am really excited I know there are some good ones. I also heard CJ has some that I want to see. anywho.. have a great night.
