Exciting June!

 I cannot believe that it has been almost a month since I have posted anything here. June has been a crazy whirlwind of a month! Allow me to elaborate:

·         I turned the big 3-0. People made bad jokes including the phrases “dirty and flirty” my friends from college came out to celebrate with me and my not from college but still awesome friends. We cooed at babies, drooled over my new Kitchen Aid mixer, did crossword puzzles and drank a lot less than we used to because, ya know, we’re old.

·         I went to my twin sister’s surprise birthday party all the way in Indiana and made her cry. Making her cry is my chief goal in life and boy was I full of win that day. Then came the awkward moment when my family tried to add “and Melissa” to the part of the song that goes: “Happy birthday Dear Angela”. Even though it was her party and not our actual birthday. Luckily, we are pretty used to sharing, but she should have thrown cake at me and screamed, “This is my day, B!@$* because that would have be waaay more entertaining.

·         I attended two weddings. I’d like to think that I inspired both since the couples were all there for my big day and who wouldn’t want a wedding after that? In all seriousness they were beautiful and tons of fun. As you can see, my family and I were very excited to attend.
OMG weddings are Awesome!
·         My sister came to visit, and I actually got to spend time with her. My husband bonded with my nieces and nephews which he immediately regretting after he picked them some fresh raspberries from the bush in our yard and discovered the poison ivy… the hard way.

I also entered a writing contest. More specifically, the Simply Stated Blogger Contest and was selected as a finalist! (Trust me; I am as shocked as you are.) If I win I will get a chance to blog over at Simply Stated for a month and receive a $1,000 dollar cash prize. I dunno about you, but I think mainstream media needs a little more disability perspective (Plus, $1,000 never hurt anyone).  You can read and vote for my entry here!

July is shaping up to be a lot calmer and so I plan to get back on a regular writing schedule soon. I have a few fun ideas rolling around in my defective little brain. So stay tuned. It’s about to get crazy, but not too crazy. I have to be in bed by ten.
