Sunday, June 27: Oops.

I didn't blog yesterday. Alright, before you issue the "off with your head!" order, let me explain.

It's hard to blog every single day and, though I had thought about it all evening yesterday, I got caught up in a movie and fell asleep last night. No grand explanation, just the simple honest truth. I broke my "blog every day" pact, but I'm OK with that. Let's face it, there are some days that ooze evidence of Marsha-just-wrote-what-she-wrote-to-be-done-of-a-blogpost-for-the-day-and-not-miss-a-day. I've noticed my quality has gone way down, and I'm going to do my best to bring it up to where I feel proud again.

Today I attended the high school graduation party of my 10 year old cousin, Evan. Wait, that can't be right.. OH YEAH. BECAUSE HE'S OLD ENOUGH TO GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL, EVEN THOUGH IN MY  HEAD HE'S A LITTLE BOY. The Robertson crew got together at my aunt and uncles for BBQ, cake and great conversation. As everyone was socializing inside, I took a moment to take a step back and really look at my family. There they were, tightly packed in a small kitchen, conversation flowing with ease, food disappearing at a rapid pace, no lack of smiles or laughter. We were all so different. We were all so busy. Yet we continued time and time again to come together for birthdays, graduations and holidays to catch up. I took a mental snapshot of my amazing relatives and joined in the nearest conversation.

Photo of the day: Oops. Embarassingly, this is the only photo I took today. I sent this to my friend to prove to him that I was wearing his Maiden t-shirt to a family party. It has no actual context in the post, so enjoy the awkward angle and vacant expression.


  1. Evan? As in the rug rat with the mullet? Oy vey....

  2. Don't worry Marsha, I am just catching up with posting now after going AWOL for about a week. Also, I feel like if we grew up together, we'd be best friends.

  3. Yes, the children who lived next door. Scary.

    K, I get the same feeling.

  4. What a great day! We are lucky to have such a great Family!!

  5. UGG may apperceive already that these can be somewhat difficult to acquisition online but they are still accessible from some best merchants. I accept begin on my searches for these UGG Boots that it is not alone accessible to acquisition them, but for abatement prices and generally with chargeless shipment as well.
