Today we spent time with family. Visited with my Aunt Kay and Uncle Bill last night and this morning. They’re letting us stay with them while we’re in town for these two days. Its been good catching up on the things we’ve missed being gone in D.C. Their kids moved out about 15 months ago, so for the first time in 20 yrs they have the house to themselves and aren’t responsible for anyone but themselves. They’re having fun and set a cheerful tone for our trip down here.
The rest of the day was spent with my mom. We went to Cracker Barrel, had a meal, and played some cards. Then played some pool at a local joint. I of course won every game. Actually no, mom whooped Curtis and I something bad, I just don’t want to admit it. We hung out the rest of the night at her place looking at pictures, and just talking. I miss her so much. Its hard being away from family all the time. While at Cracker Barrel we purchased a baby ducky for my nephew, Collin. Its one of the old school duckies that makes noises when you squeeze it.
Notice how my mom and aunt are both wearing green bay packer shirts. Thats b/c of the big game today and the fact that they both stay true to their roots (WI – Packers). Packers vs. Cowboys game was tonight. I know in my head that the packers lost, but it just doesn’t register. How can the better team (the Packers) lose to the Cowboys. It doesn’t equate. So I celebrate the greatest team of all time – Go Packers!
