We went to my mom and Dad’s last night. They live in a house in Suwanee now, not Roswell, where I grew up. So, I’m not really used to it yet, and it doesn’t really feel like home, like their old house did. Part of their things are theirs from the old house, part of it is new, and part of it is stuff that was in my grandparents’ house. It is weird for me to see it all in one place. I think perhaps I like change less than I would like to admit.
So, mom and dad had the cousins over. Except only a few of us ended up able to make it. My cousin Lynda had to go to a funeral. My sister was home laid out with strep throat and an ear infection. Todd had to work. So, i packed up my two kids and Dash, my nephew, and went to mom and dad’s. My friends Jason and Camille were also invited, but Jason had a sinus infection, so he couldn’t come either. It was still fun, but there were some gaping holes there. There were people missed.
We ate chili. We laughed. We chased kids around. Dogs barked.
