Let Freedom Ring

Friday
Friday was a pretty chill day.  My dad put a brisket on the smoker early in the morning so we could have that for supper & my mom made some potato salad & rhubarb crisp.  My dad does road construction & since this would be the only week he's actually home while I'm home we just stayed home as a family.  We had a bonfire, made smores, lit of fireworks, & drank a little.  I may have gotten a little tipsy & had a confused/laughing fit over the loss of my freedom (the name of the firework I wanted to light off last.)  My brother was the one who apparently stole it & my dad watched it all go down.

Saturday
That evening I went over to my grandparents' to hang out with my dad's side of the family where we ate & lit off more fireworks.  I hadn't been out on the farm since probably November when I was home for deer hunting/Thanksgiving.  During the day I just hung around the house & got my workout/walk in.  I read more of my porno book so that I can do a review for y'all soon so you don't think I'm actually reading porn...  

Before I headed to my grandparents' I spent probably an hour & a half at my ex-boyfriend's parents' house.  That was crazy awkward.  He sent me a message on Facebook saying they were grilling & drinking if I wanted to stop by.  Keep in mind that I haven't seen him in over 2 years. & besides very random (usually holidays) text messages & mass snapchats, we don't talk.  We didn't have a messy break-up or anything we just both went our separate ways.  I would've said no but I had no real good reason other than I was afraid it'd be awkward & it was his birthday...so I went.  Luckily (?) it wasn't just him & his parents.  There were some family friends & a few of his friends there.  It was super awkward at first, and at the end, but for awhile there in the middle it was kind of nice.  I missed talking shit with his friends, who I haven't seen in even longer.  However, I don't see this becoming a regular thing...and not just because I moved 1300 miles away ha.

Sunday
Sunday morning my dad & I were supposed to head back to my grandparents to go look for some cows that had been missing for a few days but my grandpa called to say that he finally found them.   Instead we spent the later morning/early afternoon shooting guns at beer cans, water jugs, & old spray paint cans.  I had rented a couple movies the day before that I hadn't watched yet & were due so we watched those (Ride Along & About Last Night) before my dad tried to teach my how to drive is 86 CJ7.  I didn't do terrible but I didn't do awesome either ha.  Someday I'll get it.

  3. Sounds like an adventure-filled weekend! :) I'm glad the ex's get-together wasn't awkward the *entire* time... ugh, I don't think I'd be able to face the awkwardness of hanging out with my ex and his fam again! Props for going at all!

  5. An ex-boyfriend recently invited me to spend the summer with him, but I would also find that incredibly awkward. Glad you at least eventually had fun with his friends!
