I just spent four days with my extended family and I really liked it. What the heck is happening to me anyway? I was with them Wednesday through Saturday, in my home and in other homes. I didn't have a moment to myself until last night when I got a half hour of reading time before bed. There is still way too much drama over Monopoly and other board games, people still hoard food and I my only gift was a really crappy cheap tool set but I still had a great time. Wresting with the kids, cooking, eating and laughing with the adults. It was great. When the inevitable "We are getting old" conversations came up I walked away and played with the kids. I am really tired of that conversation over and over again. The family used to drive me nuts, some of us have changed and some haven't. I guess it is my outlook that is making these times fun for me. Did you spend time with family last week? How was that for you?
