Post vacation thoughts and pictures
So the family got back from vacation. The recovery has been good. I love how one's house and everything around you seems fresher after a get away and the monotonous daily routines have a new spark when you've been gone from them. So dishes/laundry/floors here I come!!!!
My sister is back to the Aussie land. I'm always sad to see her go and try not to keep asking her when she is coming back every day as her life is there and she is happy there. but the tentative date for our next sighting is January of 2010. :) Not to far off. I think on this last trip with her seeing the daily life of having small kids, her desire for kids has been reduced dramatically to say the least! She's quite content to be an Aunt. I think Caden waking up several times crying at night and then getting up at 5 am helped her reach that conclusion and the fits of emotion Morgan would have when she got tired. That's fine, I'm happy and content to be the sister who has the kids and helps them grow and become people and she can be the world traveling Aunt they go and visit.
As far as the family dynamics that went along with 6 adults in one house, I was really glad at how smoothly it was. There were definite different points of views on topics of conversation but still love and acceptance after the talks. Glad we can agree to disagree about things and then just continue on in relationship.
One irratating point about californians. What is it with tail gating with those drivers! It seems to be a pre-requistie to become a driver is that you will get 3 inches from the person's bumper if they are in the fast lane going 80-85 mph and it's just not fast enough for you! BACK OFF BUSTER! Maybe I'll make that into my own bumper sticker and post it on my car.
