Kick Ass Cards!

As I've mentioned before, my aunt, mom, and Granny all love to play cards, as do I (and judiang and Amy & Rachel). Shanghai Rum is the family favorite and tonight we got together for cards, just us four nonparenthetical ones. Dad grilled burgers and smokies, mom baked a peach pie (well, no, actually they bought a home-made one from the Lake Festival today), and there was still some leftover ice cream from mom's slumber party last weekend. Wonderful supper.

And then, once the table was cleared, it was time for the game. And for the first time in ages (well, it just seems like it) I won the game - woohoo! Aunt Becky was second, with mom and Granny third and fourth. There were some swear words spoken at the table, but I managed to refrain from doing so (I can knock folks' socks off with my swearing if I'm not careful). Despite the death threats and bitching, we all had a great time playing. Well, we certainly laughed a lot.

The early part of the day was spent doing some computer work at the school (gratis, as my treasurer prefers it) which took more than twice as long as it should have. Still, I got to watch my 7th grade cousin, Brandi, play volleyball. Her team won the first two games and she did a great job serving. I was quite proud.

Tomorrow I intend to make a dent in the housework. Wish me luck!
