Hobgoblin and I are leaving tomorrow to go visit my family in the Rochester, NY, area and will be gone until sometime next weekend. I agree with what my sister said on the subject: “I’m staying until Friday or Saturday, depending on how sane I feel.” Just because my family can drive me insane sometimes doesn’t mean I don’t love them, right? The fun part of the trip will be waiting breathlessly by the phone to hear if my sister-in-law has had her baby yet (and to find out the gender, as she and my brother aren’t telling). The uncertain part will be meeting my sister’s new boyfriend — he’s probably great, but who knows? The fun-in-a-rebellious-kind-of-way part will be refusing to go to the Christmas Eve service (rebellion is easy when you come from the right kind of family). The not-so-fun part will be the snow storm we will inevitably get caught in. I just hope it isn’t an out-and-out blizzard, but we’ll see.
Enjoy Christmas, if that’s your thing; otherwise, have a great week!
