Tonight I head off to my Auntie's cottage to spend the night with 12 or so of my aunties, cousins, my mom and sis. We did it once before at my moms house and it's all a hazy blur. They tell me that is a good thing, since if I could remember everything it would surely scar me for life. Like hearing about my Auntie say the word 'pecker' over and over, and learning their drinking games from the 70's...on second thought it's probably going to be a very fun, laughter filled night!
The last time we watched a scary movie (and for the life of me I can't remember what it was!), and halfway through the movie someone (maybe me? sneaked out of the house and around to the living room window to scare the bajeezus out of the rest of us...it worked. I was recently reminded that bras were also hanging from the living room chandelier...I do not remember this part!
Last time was probably 10 years ago, so some of my cousins would not have had kids at the time so I am sure that everyone has matured since then. On second thought, the most crazy of the bunch were the aunties so that probably hasn't changed much since then.
I have packed up for the night - I may need an air mattress since the beds are limited. I have filled the back of my SUV so full that, when I pick up my Auntie B and my sista, they *may* have to hold all of their stuff on their laps...just sayin. Or tie it to the roof might help us get elbow room. I am not sure how one night has turned into this...I am only bringing a few snacks and a big salad...oh yeah, now I remember...my giant cooler for beer and other alcohol. (**Sheepish grin**) I am bringing way too many drinks, but to be honest I'm not certain what I will feel like drinking. Variety is the spice of life they say!
Anyway...off I go to try to find the cottage by my Auntie's directions...I may or may not get there...if not I'm heading towards the sun!
