I did many American things on the Fourth of July

This was the first Fourth of July in years that I have stayed home and done nothing! There's always some cookout, camping, event happening and I tend to be the type of person who must do all the things! I have a hard time turning down a social invitation even if I really need to stay home and recharge. Why do I do this to myself? I must be the social butterfly flitting around everywhere. I'm afraid that if I don't go I could be missing out on the fun times! People can't have fun without me!

What did we do for the Fourth? Derek made burgers and corn on cob. I made sangria (it came out ok but could have used some Brandy) and played Mario Kart. I think my thumbs are still sore. We are both pretty competitive. The leftover college kids were partying it up which pretty much solidified my decision to stay inside to avoid that mess.

I also watched Jaws and Bob's Burgers and was lazy so really I did many "American" things to celebrate the Fourth of July.


  1. Sounds like a good one! I hung out by a pool, but mariokart is always the right decision.

  2. Oh Ron Swanson. You God among men! I stayed home too! I don't need to be around a bunch of loud people.

  3. That's an Independence Day weekend if there ever was one!

  4. Ah, good old FOMO. (Fear Of Missing Out.) If we didn't have FOMO, what would we ever do in life? ;-) I, for one, would become a hermit.
