My time sense is a little off. I'm waking up around 9 and going to bed around 11, which feels late and indulgent until I stop to remember the time zone change, at which point it feels virtuous. I'm hoping that I can stick to the relatively early schedule when I return.
The visiting relatives over the last four days have gone back to their respective homes. It was nice seeing everyone again; I haven't been out this way in about eighteen months, when we flew out for the Christmas Holidays (and got caught up in various horrific holiday weather). We're staying with Grandma Mary and her two daughters, Melora and Melisa. Melissa has a daughter, Kristina. Melora's son, Kevin, visited with his wife, Jackie, and son Evan. We've been seeing a lot of Veronica, Melora's daughter, and Veronica's husband, Joe; and Kevin and Veronica's dad, Ray. Mary's other daughters, Maria and Mega, visited. Maria and her daughter, Devon, drove up from Pennsylvania. Megan and her two sons, Marley and Masio, drove down from upstate. Mary, Melissa, Maria, Kristina and Devon went into the city to see "Wicked."
We've had a boatload of home-cooked meals.
