State Fair of Texas

I love the fair. Autumn begins, days are cooler and the fair is here, except...yeah, its a downer...I miss my mom.

Usually the days leading up to the fair are filled with excitement but, to tell the truth, I just about forgot today was opening day. Unbelievable.

But, we will be going and I will be seeing my mom in her scooter looking for the Fletcher's Corny Dog stands and see her betting on the Cowboys on the roulette or paying everyone's way to play a game. Loading up two corny dogs to take home...and I think I will be smiling.....thank God for memories....

The return of my nephew.

It's really weird to be on the boy's side of things. Usually its the guys being a-holes to us women.

A while back my niece called me to ask for advice on my nephew. Seems his baby's momma broke up with him and he was really upset. She gave him advice, that I felt, was pretty good since she'd been so blind herself in her relationship.

Then my nephew in Georgia had trouble in his relationship. I won't go into too much except that, to me, she was partly at fault from what I read in her myspace.

Both of my nephews have their flaws, who doesn't? But these heart was aching for the boys. But then again, it was a bit refreshing to see that there were two guys that actually felt what women usually go through. And they might learn from it or be bitter. Bitter like me. HA! nephew is back in town. No telling how long. But, I guess they felt it was needed...the space... And now her status on myspace is "lonely"....sigh.
