Family Time

3:31 p.m. In short, girls came over for the weekend. Netflix, Youtube, Sims 3 and 4, Maple Story 2, and a fun park trip.

There was some ‘private’ drama regarding groceries with our extra guests. April spent out of her money for them and with Mom’s help (ten bucks and twenty April would’ve given me Thursday anyway), I’m paying her back. 29 bucks. And Rob was unhappy about the short notice. 

It almost came out of my SL funds, which would have some reluctance on my part as I wanted to save up for a new better netbook for both Aaliyah and myself. A couple hundred bucks. 

This way, paying the cash and not having to deal with an atm, is preferable. My bank said if I had one more issue with my card and an atm, my card will be ‘permanently’ blocked. So..yeah, that gives me anxiety.

Now in the parking lot of a restaurant for Malania’s birthday celebration. We’re not going in yet, being a half hour early. 

We were at Mom’s earlier and also had a nice walk to the park there. Next to the old tennis court I grew up seeing. 🤗

Thankful to God life is working out for the better lately, even with the bumps, he’s got me. Ya know?

I did put some of my goals mentioned in my previous post, as I spend time with family, but still plan to do it.

3:38 p.m. Going in.

3:57 p.m. The party has arrived, and now waiting to be seated. In the meantime, I’m sitting on the bench inside and looking at the New Orleans art on the walls and photos representing the history of this place. It’s called ‘Tibby’s’ by the way. I’ve never heard of, nor eaten here before. 

My battery had been terrible lately. Here’s hoping it lasts the celebration. 😬🤞🏻 

4:10 p.m. Going with the Southern Drippin Chicken Sandwich. Fries. Dirty rice. 🤘🏻 Side of unsweetened tea with a pack of Splenda. Perfect.

P.S. They separated the adults and kid table.

4:16 p.m. Scratch the rice. Gonna share cheese fries with Mom. 😂😂

4:38 p.m. Poor Aaliyah. She’s caught at that weird age. 11. Too big for the little kids at the table, far too young for the adults. Not yet a teen. She’s bored. 🙁

4:48 p.m. The fries were delicious. Smothered in roast beef and gravy..and not a lot of cheese. But yeah, still delicious. I topped it off with some Tabasco.

4:54 p.m. Mom offered for Aaliyah to sit at the grown up table, but she declined. Odd, but okay.

P.S. My turn to run Harmony to the bathroom.

5:03 p.m. My hands are itching all of a sudden. Not good. 

5:24 p.m. Bruh, I’m so full! 

Delicious! Added Tabasco to the rice...and thereafter, my head kinda tingled. 😬 That’s..something. Maybe not good. My stomach is also churning a little. But other than that, great food! Also in the pic, that’s homestyle sauce and ranch. 

6:18 p.m. Got plenty of birthday pics and vids. So nice to see Malania and Marley outside of Christmas for once.

I drank about 3-4 teas. I don’t know if that’ll have adverse effects or not. 

The cake, very sweet and frosty, really topped off my full stomach. Lol. 

I love blessed days like this. Spending this much time with this much of my family is truly treasurable. Praise and thank the Lord! 😂🤗❤️🙏 Plus people spent more time talking than on our devices, which is wonderful in this day and age.

Possibly heading to DJ's next and dropping off the girls. Then I finally get to go home to a quiet house and un-shared computer. Although sharing it was fun..outside of the girls squabling for turns. I forgive.

P.S. MOSI is supposedly closing in the next five years....wut? 😳 My childhood! 😂 Guess those places have to go sometime. 

6:38 p.m. Leaving. Full on Food Coma mode. Fun fact: This whole event lasted three hours. 😂🤗❤️😍

All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to almighty God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen. God is able to do above all we ask or think!
