What a week. Mollie got here last Saturday, LJ and Collin got her Tuesday. They all loved the kitchen. LJ was truly blown away since he had no idea any of it was going on. Mollie had known but they were all suitably impressed. Everyone worked on getting the last minute things for the reunion. And we all enjoyed visiting.
The rest of the family came after lunch Saturday. They had all watched my kitchen slowly deteriorate over the last 20 years so they all enjoyed the surprise too. We had about twenty-five at the reunion this year. Only four from my parent’s generation were able to come, there are only seven left at all. But we all had such a great time. There are two main events at our reunions – eating and talking. Man, we are so good at both things.
Most were able to come back for Sunday lunch – that’s the day I cook. It all turned out really well. Guess that means my cooking is done for the year. Most folks headed home after three and Mollie had to head back to camp. I’m taking the boys to the airport this morning. I guess it’s going to seem quiet at the house for a while. But that won’t be so bad.
PK hasn’t been around much. She’ll drift back soon, she always does. Badass doesn’t even talk to me any more. Wimpy is satisfied with the status quo. Okay, that’s not exactly true; Badass has been talking to me a lot. I’ve been ignoring her. Maybe as I have a chance to think and write I’ll start listening again. I’m so glad I had this week with the whole family. I needed it. But I need to be PK again too.
I start school on Wednesday, but I hope to be around here more.
