this could go in a hundred different directions: i could write about how much fun it was to have my parents here with me for a glorious 6.5 days, i could write about how stinken busy we were and how by the end of the week conrad was so out of whack we all thought he had entered the Terrible Twos on bad crank, i could write about all the places we went to and things we did and what we ate and what we said and how enduring it is to be around my father and his zany tactics and behavior, and i could also write about my perfect mother and how she made everything just as perfect as her perfect little perfect self.
but truth be told, or written, that's a lot to write about and now that the house is empty and conrad is returning to sanity i'm realizing ALL the grown up things i need to tend to. like, paying bills. and returning calls from a week ago.
i seriously forgot the world existed while they were here. we just had too much to do to be bothered by the hodrum; i was determined to soak up every second of their visit, and i feel i did i pretty good job at it. of course, it does little in the I STILL MISS YOU LIKE HELL department, but it did wonders in the I'M NO LONGER QUITE AS HOMESICK department.word on the street is that my sister and eric are planning a visit out here in september. there will be a new baby but i know i'll be past ready for some more quality time with The Family that makes me happy to be family.
