This family visit went off without a hitch. Aprill was actually really nice and she didn’t feel it necessary to push my buttons. I appreciate that greatly. It made for a nice 4 day visit.
Saturday was our last outing, as you know we went to the zoo. Afterward we headed back home and had some late lunch early dinner. 7 people piled around a table at Famous Dave’s eating burnt ends and onion strings was a perfect way to end the day. BTW if ever in Columbia, the Famous Dave’s there makes the best banana pudding, definitely worth a drop in.
Friday they went shopping in Hanover and I met them there. We ended the day by seeing Maleficent. It was good. Not as good as Snow White and the Huntsman, but still pretty good. After the movie we ate and then everyone headed towards my house. It was late, I honestly just wanted to shower and lay down but I couldn’t. They didn’t leave until like 11 that night.
Wednesday and Thursday you already know about.
They left here about 9pm Saturday night NY bound. Everyone in my house celebrated by taking showers and sitting around in their PJs lol. Honestly that is what happened. It was awesome.
Sunday was the first time in a long time that I woke up exhausted. So much so that I slept all afternoon. I love my family, sparingly, in dribs and drabs. I find that my anxiety stays pretty high when they are around. It’s exhausting and it takes me days to get back to normal. Last night for example. I posted a peony on my blog and was asleep within 10 minutes of its post.
That is it! I just wanted to post an update so that you know how my visit with my sister and her family went. They are back in NY and all is right with the world lol.
