Drill Master Grandma

It has been a busy weekend, which is why I haven't updated my blog in awhile (so get off my back Shipkicker). On Friday we had to go to Cam's family reunion in Washington (yep, good ol USA). It was fun to meet his cousins and stuff but I have to admit I am not the biggest fan of his grandma and Im suprised I made it through the day without telling anyone off. His grandma is very nice when you first meet her but after a SHORT while you would see that she has a preferance for yelling rather than say...talking, as us normal people do. She put on this event and then proceeded to yell at me and Cam's sister to start cleaning up and to do the dishes (you know we are female therefore we must clean up after everyone). I also had to sweep the floor of the kitchen at the park she rented but I tell you, I drew the line at mopping the damn floor. I mean it was bad enough that I had to drive all the way down there and put up with the long border line up but then I couldnt even sit and relax without being put to work. Dont get me wrong, I dont mind helping out at all but when you are yelled at and expected to do it when you arent even family, it tends to make one a little angery. ANYWAY...after the old people left, us young folk went to the local watering hole for some beers only to find that the place was full of drunk chain-smoking rednecks. We lasted long enough for two beers before the smell of burning cow poop (aka: American cigarettes) caused such bad headaches and near puking episodes that we had to leave, pronto. We went back to Canada ASAP, the land where no one can smoke in bars, thank god!

That brings us to Saturday and the PNE (its a huge fair for those that dont know). It was fun and packed as usual and it took 1/2 hour to find parking but other than that we had a good time. Nothing too interesting to report but I did laugh my ass off at some of the dogs in the SuperDog show, some of those little buggers can fly I tell ya. At night we just stayed home and watched movies (BORING).

Sunday...skating. I. AM. SO. SORE! Its been far too long since I have been on the ice. OUCH. And that brings me to right now, I am being lazy and spending my evening in the blogosphere.
What are YOU up to?
