This is at Amy's graduation.
Me and Ian on the UT campus. We walked all around with Amy and Broc. Ian was such an Angel this entire event-filled week.

This weekend, my mother, Ian, and I are going to Houston. I
always have mixed feelings about it. (Amy's graduating so we're going to watch). On the good side, we get to see Stephen's parents and possibly Caroline... and of course Amy and her family.
On the stinky side, it's literally stinky. And humid. And big. And let's face it, not as awesome as Austin. I go only to see the people. Stephen gets to stay in lovely Austin. Sadly, he'll be cleaning and helping my uncle put a fence up. But, he'll also get to have peace and quiet. (Ian has been high pitched screaming lately, not because he's angry. Because he can. My ears hurt).
The thing I miss about Houston... is more what I miss about Seabrook. I used to love driving on the coast and being able to see out onto the ocean. In Austin, I get to drive on a lake, but it does not have the same effect.
So, that's two for Houston, a million against. Nonetheless, I
still try and enjoy my trip. It'd be way more awesome if the people and the ocean could come to me, but occasionally I have to go to it.
P.S. Here is what Ian looks like when he sleeps in his sling:

First off, Happy Cinco de Mayo!!! Today should be (and still could be) a great day. I started off the morning by waking up at 7:14, one minute before my alarm. Ian was already awake.
SKIP THIS NEXT PARAGRAPH IF YOU ARE A BOY
Aunt flow has decided to grace me with her presence. Le sigh. I get cramps now. I can only use natural remedies because I'm still breastfeeding. Note to self: get heating pad back from mom. One year and three months without you... I guess I should welcome you back. I should have seen this coming. I had PMS pretty badly, which I never do. This post-pregnancy should be interesting.
START READING AGAIN
Next, I get Ian to my mom's at 8. YAY! I'm on time. Then, I'm driving to campus. All of the sudden I have a realization. I forgot my laptop at home. I stayed up until 2 AM doing a review. I did not email it to myself (to print at school). Plus, what am I supposed to do in finance now? I can only listen to so many of that senial teacher's sob stories. Oh well, change of plans.
I'm thirsty. Let me get my wallet. Oh wait. That's right. I forgot it at home. I'm supposed to be here until 7 o'clock tonight, and I do not have my wallet. Motherhood has made me so forgetful. Sometimes, on my way to campus, I have a small panic attack because I think that I forgot Ian.
This is where my lovely friends come in. Who can make a day better?! Kevs! All he does is listen to me. And agree. It makes everything better. Same with Carina and Cynthia. We all have our first class together, I don't just run around campus sobbing to everyone. Cynthia gave me money. YAY! What a great mommy.
Could this turn into a good day? Yes, and it is already beginning to look up. I just found out that my night class has been partially cancelled, the professor is sick so we only have a quiz, then we can leave! YAY!!!
I'll quit my crying now. I would post some pictures for you, but all of my pictures are on my laptop... there's always next time.
P.S. A girl announced to the class that she has strep throat. And she came to class. GO HOME! Kevin gave me sanitizer. Life saver.

Last night I went to a show at Stubbs with my dad and Stephen. What?! Amanda went out? What about Ian? My lovely mother stayed home and watched him for us. I got to be a big girl and go out. It was a good time. I was extremely embarrassed at one point, but I'm going to make you wait until later on in the blog to hear it.
