I’m starting to think about prepping for my next trip to Brazil (in four days). Originally I was to leave tomorrow, but a change in plans on the return due to a newly-scheduled meeting the day after I was to come home allowed me to shift the outbound back a couple of days as well. I like being home.
The week at work (just back from two weeks off) has been relatively quiet, which was a welcome change and a nice transition.
Next month is our company’s annual customer conference and for me, September is pretty much a lost month due to tight deadlines, meetings, planning sessions, etc. October should offer some more breathing space — and I have already purchased my ticket for that 10th trip to Brazil.
My honey and I took a 2-day trip to Las Vegas last weekend to spend time with his family who were gathered there. We had a relaxing time and didn’t lose as much money as we took, so consider it a success.
On that trip we stopped at his mother’s in St. George to pick up an item to carry to his sister in Las Vegas and ended up having a rather heated discussion about marriage. She is considering marriage number 6, but has no problem supporting anti-marriage equality initiatives on the ballot. A rather frustrating conversation took place and while I am prone to discussion, normally my honey is not. He was this time.
A couple of days later I asked him, “If and when we are legally able to get married, are you going to invite your mother?”
He didn’t answer.
