Wait, it's june right now, I know, but I'm going to Florida in August for my mom's birthday, and a family reunion-type thing, and I'm starting to make plans. Right now, apparently, not everyone is actually planning on coming. There was an unplanned family reunion a few months ago when my great-grandmother died. I was really upset that I couldn't go to her funeral, but it really couldn't be helped. Funerals are always so last minute. I wasn't able to go to my Grandmother's either, but I didn't feel so bad about that one because I was actually there when she died. That was upsetting.
But I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing in terms of travel plans, how long I'm going to stay, what I'm going to bring, food that I'll probably be cooking. My mom has an amazing kitchen, and I miss it a lot, so I'll probably be doing a meal or two, a few dishes, and all that. She's got granite counters, a professional Dynasty range, a huge fridge. I'm so jealous. I miss her house. I'm glad I have my own place, I'm not renting from anyone else, but I miss her kitchen. I'm going to be making iced tea at the very least, but I'm trying to figure out the ratios of how to do it in larger than one serving. When I do it at work, I get a short cup (8 oz.) and brew one bag of Refresh (Mint tea), and one bag of Wild Sweet Orange, Then I pour it into a grande cup (16 oz.) full of ice. I usually add a little bit of classic syrup or a couple packets of sugar just to sweeten it a bit. This works well when I double the recipe too, and do it into a water bottle that I have that's 32 oz, but I can't find it for some reason right now. I'm assuming it's somewhere in my car, or maybe at Damon's place, because I have no clue where I left it right now.
I'm trying to figure out when the appropriate time to call a guy is. I said I'd call him, after our lunch thing on Friday, and I want to call him, but I know I won't be able to do anything until Tuesday. I'm thinking I could probably call him today at the earliest, but tomorrow is probably the best idea. I don't like this "dating" thing. It does nothing but confuse me, especially since I don't know any of the rules...
Question of the Day: What's your favorite iced tea?
