It's Good to be Home
What a whirlwind weekend! I came home last night, after four days away, ready to sleep. I'm just this morning realizing what an introvert I really am. My mom is probably re-realizing the same thing about herself.
My cousin, Jonathan, married a beautiful girl, Keri, this weekend. I'd only met her once, so I enjoyed visiting with her a bit, getting to know their friends, meeting family I hadn't met, seeing others I barely recognized. It was a tremendously fun time. There's nothing like family to give me a real boost.
There's nothing like four non-stop days with people to exhaust me so completely that I can barely type. I love my family more than I can say. It was wonderful spending so much time with my mom and sister, my grandmother (who's looking very good, by the way), my cousins and their friends. Other visits - mom's cousins, my aunts and uncles - were WAY too short. But I am so DRAINED today. All that face time. I just want to crawl into a hole and sleep, write, read and think.
All that said, I can't wait till Christmas. We're headed back to central Louisiana for a few days to visit and I'm looking forward to spending more time with Mary Anne and Resa, my favorite aunts. This time Chris and the kids will come with. Yay!
Until I write again...
