Listening to: U2 - With or Without You
June 27-30 Thurs-Sunday Spencer Reunion in Ashton Idaho (Shirleys kids planned it)
The dominant feeling of that reunion was. Annoyed. Because it was ..neverending and getting old quickly.]
Besides the HUGE hassle it took to get Shirley and Danny there on Friday just to leave in another day.
The most annoying thing was, not my Aunt Shirley mind you (whom no one seemed enjoy her company but we pretended), was the fact that -everyone- wanted to hold/see the baby boy Cole. The endless questions if they couldn't visibly see Cole or his mother. It annoyed Mindy because she never got to see her baby and everyone thought they could fix him all the time, when THEY were the problem all along!
It annoyed me to see my sister would have to literally hide from others just to be with her baby. And when those two disappeared everyone would ask ME where they are! It's not even my kid and I'm supposed to keep tabs on him? Goodness. I love my sister, I do, but I don't care where she is 24/7!
The most annoying was my...Aunt?..Diane. Everytime I had Cole for like five seconds (he was kinda sick) he'd be bawling and she'd heard it a mile away and come running. Made me look bad. She caught me with him everytime he cried. She prolly thought Cole didn't like me after that. Thanks a lot Cole.
And then she was annoying in the fact that the only thing she talked about was her son Nick. She went on and on with praise for this son of hers. "He's so great. You have to meet him. He's going on a mission then when he comes back I'll hook him up with some girl and they can make me gran-babies! He's hilarious. You'll love him." He was a normal annoying immature pumpous 18 year old. I never saw the 'greatness' in him! *rolls her eyes* And then she'd tell us how Nick and his friends throw fire crackers and 'bombs' at the sheriff of the town who was also their coach and how they basically harass the neighborhood. "They do stupid stuff like that, oh but their good kids." It's like OPEN YER EYES LADY.
Least tolerant with Diane....
Next in line for annoyances was the 9 and 11 yr old girls running around. Of course, they flocked the baby also but they also did the whole "Oh look older 'kids' to start fights with" and harassed me the whole time. Irk.

All my 'vacations' so far have been...undecidedly...fun...
As in the activities are fun, but the people....get a little annoying.
So maybe I need a 'vacation' with people that won't annoy me so much.
As in I need a vacation not with family....
with friends. :D
Fourth of July is my last jump of freedom before boringness totally sets in. I'm kinda excited for the Fourth (usually something good gets started on that day) but I don't know who to hang out with! So many people I want to be with!
Other than that...I have nothing on my calendar cept maybe for the Law Reunion sometime this summer...And of course all the weddings in August and stopping and restarting school again.
