My friends all went to Grand Isle to go fishing and camping on the beach there this weekend, and invited me, but I had to go to BR for my sister's boyfriend's graduation from LSU, so I couldn't go. We all went about 3 or 4 years ago or something like that, and maybe they'll go in another 3 or 4 so I can perhaps go again. We had such a good time then, I was unhappy in the back of my mind all weekend resenting not getting to go. But family obligations are family obligations, even if the guy is not actually family (yet). We boiled about 100 pounds of crawfish and I ate several pounds of it. My dog was pretty good on the trip thankfully, as was everyone else I saw. Despite feeling left behind in BR I enjoyed myself. I didn't go to the bar as the only friend of mine who didn't go fishing doesn't drink. We did go shoot some stick for awhile and I always enjoy that. I left a little early and got back before dark. All in all, less disappointing than I figured it would be. I'm trying to decide whether I'll come back in next weekend but I'd have to leave work early and that's not easy. I'm also trying to decide whether to come in on the 3rd for a Shotokan training camp, but I'd have to basically take the entire Friday off to get there on time, and I dunno if I can swing it. Or for that matter, if I can last through the several hours of training itself.
