Also in my family, I want everyone to play a different instrument so we can have our own miniature family orchestra.
Mafia was after the sports game, of course, and that was good because we were all having a fun time together, but then the one group left and Celeste's boyfriend got there, and we got split again. Mom and Steve have been dying for a couple to play euchre(sp?) with. On the bright side of that, we got Mom to agree to read Fruits Basket on the condition that we play two games of it for each of the first three volumes she reads (we think that by three maybe she'll want to read the rest on her own). On the not-so-bright side of that, Mom would only agree to read Fruits Basket if we agreed to play that card game.
The night ended with Celeste asking me to do something for her for her work and me starting to do it because I like to help people but failing at it, probably because I really didn't want to do it and so didn't put my mind to it, but still feeling like a failure and... yeah. So we're just kinda feeling crummy in general right now. So I think it's time to go watch something happy. Yes. That sounds like a brilliant idea.
Today I'm thankful for wonderful friends who are happy to let us vent to them, the frosting on that Texas sheet cake, not having to play cards or Catchphrase today (our volume one of Fruits Basket is currently being lent out, and we refused to play any cards until the transaction could be completed), the revelation that if we get annual passes when we go to Disneyland after AX we don't have to worry about spending the whole day there so it's okay to take public transportation if we have to, and kitties being happy to see us.
