A "stunning" weekend

Need.  Coffee.  Now.

Seems the older I get, the more long road trips zap the life-force from my body.  I think the coffee shop should start delivering.  

Anyway.  My lovely sister graduated from nursing school this weekend.  I am so proud.  The ceremony was very nice.  And it was capped off by my mom showing the hubby her new stun gun during a quiet moment and accidentally hitting the "zap your ass into another dimension" button.  Yeah.  350,000 volts.  That thing cracks like a mini lightning bolt with an electrical buzz.  'Course everyone jumped in their seats and tried to figure out where the noise had originated.  Had they seen the mom and the hub giggling; they would've figure it out.  If you knew my family. . . well, let's just say the graduation would not have been complete without an incident like this.

Momma commands respect, seemingly. Congrats to your sis!

Yeah, she does. But you'd never know it from outward appearances. She's a very pert, petite, blonde, 4'11", and wears a size 5 shoe (sometimes shops in the kids section). It always surprises people when she speaks her mind, or tells someone off.
