Family stuff!

Well, my aunt and younger cousins came down here for the weekend (they actually left today). And let me tell you, it’s little visits like these that reminds me how far from normal my family is. Now, don’t get me wrong- I love my family very, very much… but I’ll be the first to admit we all have issues. Since my aunt and cousin stayed with family that lives in town, I got to spend the entire weekend with all of them. Now that I think about it, actually… maybe we spent a bit too much time together…

Well, the visiting cousin, who turned 11 Friday, just so happens to be in the “gangsta” stage. Which means he wears giant shorts, T-shirts that reach his knees, puffy shoes, and oversized hats. Oh yeah, and you can’t forget the “bling bling” (which, in my cousin’s case, just so happened to be this giant, chunky necklace made out of rubber bands), and the fact that he’s got his iPod jammed in his ears 24/7. My other cousin, who turned 13 in March, is the same way.

Then there’s my grandmother… she plays a big role in the church she goes to (it’s not my church, though). I only go there when family’s in town or if I’ve spent the night over there. Well, I went this Sunday… and found out that my grandmother really likes to “get down” during the Praise and Worship songs. I mean, REALLY get down. In front of the entire church. 😯 I didn’t know whether to laugh or scream.

Oh yes, and did I mention that the aunt that lives in town is really emotional? She cries over the littlest stuff. The aunt that lives out of town, however, knows how to do the Soulja Boy and the 2-step, and she claims her favorite song is SexyBack.  I’m convinced my brother is part monkey, my mother is a germ freak, and my dad is… well, my dad!

But you know what? As crazy as these people may be, they mean the world to me somehow. Maybe I’m just as crazy as they are… 😉

    Haha, you got it. 😀
    But being a selfish teenage girl, I like to make a big deal out of them.
