And so it ends.

The month of daily blogging, that is. It is finally over. I would have to say that it didn't go too bad. I managed to keep on track and I never missed a post. Interesting thing to do. But hey, now we can get back to our regularly scheduled blog posting. Which might be a few times a week.

We'll see. Last night my Uncle came in from California. I haven't seen him in nearly 12 years, or so! He looks just like my father. And I guess this is a good thing that he came out. I mean, it's probably going to be the last time that I ever see him. His health isn't the best. My father even took him to the hospital today for kidney dialysis. That's pretty tough when you go on a trip to have to spend 4 hours in the hospital to filter your blood. It makes you really want to take better care of yourself. Or at least it makes me feel that way.

Well, we all had dinner at my mom's house. My sister came over too. And it has been ages since she's seen him. We had a lovely dinner and the kids weren't too crazy. Not like on our drive home today. Eddie somehow got his arm all twisted in the seatbelt and started to scream. I had to pull the car over. I got out in the rain, because of course it had to be raining today. When I got out, I stepped into a puddle of muddy water. But I had to do it. My kid was screaming that he was hurting. Of course there were no good places to pull over. Traffic was terrible and I just had to do the best I could. I freed his arm of the entangled seatbelt and we pressed on home.

Eddie was too funny too, he didn't want to get out of the car. He insisted that he would just stay there in the car until we were ready to go. I'm thinking, no. I have to put away our groceries that we just bought at the store, let's get out. Of course he started kicking and screaming b'c he didn't want me to take him out. Well, he got over it. As he often does.

Now it's bed time. And we are winding down. My favorite time of day. When everyone gets to sleep. Including me. Especially me. I just hope that what I'm feeling right now isn't me coming down with whatever funky germ has been making my dh sick. He's been hacking all over everything. Ugh. I just need my pillow. Ah.... but at least it's the weekend. That's nice.
