One the things that I have decided to do is to disable comments to my entries. I’m not even going to look at my journal anymore. I’m just going to post entries using a LJ client. I want to write more deep and personal things without having to censor myself. I am still thinking about just making everything private, but not sure that is a good idea. The constant battle over whether to censor myself or not.
**sigh** I got to go to sleep
So we leave Alyssa at Grandma’s and head back to Lesa’s. We call Gabi cause she is suppose to come up. She doesn’t get up until 11pm WITH Antonio, who I have never seen before. O. K. I have seen him before, but he has always been sleeping when I have come over. He def has the Barry charm and the Gabi temper. Oy Vey.
So there was lots of alcohol (just bottles and bottles of wine and other stuff), food (cheeses from around the world), games (played balderdash) and talked for hours. Conversations included all of us chipping in money to buy and refit a bus for us to use on trips, the sexual habits of married couples before having a child and after, and getting Kathy straight on who is with who and who is not talking to who.
Unfortunately, Antonio didn’t want to go to sleep until 3am. And then he woke up for awhile around 5am. But what really sucked was at 8am when Lesa’s mom came by to drop Alyssa off. **sigh** Not a good day for a hangover. Anyway, I left Sunday at 11am in hopes of beating traffic. No such luck, has I got stuck in traffic from Sacramento to Cordellia. But weirdly enough, traffic in the bay was light.
I totally chopped this up cause I am tired and I need to go to sleep. There were TONS of pictures taken, but I am waiting for Suzanne to touch them up before I post them. I did have a good time with them; has usual, they gave me good advice on the issues that I have with my life.
The other thing was that I had some weird ass dreams while I was up there. One involved me being hit in my new car by someone and rolling down a hill. Another one involved Suzanne fighting some bitch and totally fucking her up. But later, when she dropped me off at my car, the girl’s boyfriend came and shot me.
Not even sure if I can remember all that has happen now. **sigh** I should have just stayed up Sunday night and typed all of this out. Oh well.
Got into Susanvillearound 7:30 and when to Lesa’s mom’s house. Mrs
Danielsen Long was there with Bob and they entertained me for awhile until Lesa showed up. OMG….Lesa’s baby, Alyssia, has grown up so much since I saw her in Sacramento. And she has the biggest eyes and lashes I have ever seen. I really wanted to take this kid home with me.
So we went out to dinner in downtown Susanville. I forgot that they give you bigger portions in the country than in the city. My mudslide on the rocks was huge and so was the chicken fried steak that I ordered. It must have been the size of one of my dinner plates. After dinner, I followed Lesa home to her apartment. It is a pretty nice size apt for the three of them for right now. But Alyssa is growing so fast that they will probably have to move to someplace bigger soon. Soon after Kurt came home from work and we caught up on things and played with the baby. Wait. Actually the baby was asleep until like 12-1am. Then she woke up and we played with her for awhile. Then we tried putting her to sleep. She did not goto sleep until 4-5am in the morning. **Sigh** I remember when I could stay out all night long and goto school or work early the next day. Not anymore. Oy Vey, that baby wore me out.
Anyway, I got some sleep and we woke up around 11:30am. We got dressed and Lesa mom came over and we headed out for lunch at this Mexican place. Once again, huge portions of food. Amber and Kathy were coming up, but we weren’t expecting them to show up until 5pm. We were shocked when they called for Lesa’s mom house. So we went over to see them. It’s been about 3 months since I’ve seen Amber, but it’s been years since I’ve seen Kathy. She was looking nice; I am SO GLAD that she got rid of that butch, short haircut and is letting her hair grow.
So lots of catching up and lots of pictures taken. Oh yeah, all through this trip, whenever Lesa’s Mom is around, pictures are being taken with her digital camera (she has the Kodak one with the base station)
