Thursday already? A week ago my parents arrived. They only stayed four days, but with all the driving we did, I'm still recovering. They stayed with my sister and BIL in Jersey so it was an hour's drive every time we went to see them. On Friday we went to Gettysburg, a two hour drive from my house. If you ever visit Gettysburg, I highly recommend going with the Licensed Battlefield Guide Service. They drive you in your car around the battlefield, and explain what was going on every day and on each field. If you don't have the guide it is just 10,000 monuments in a bunch of fields (trust me, that's how I saw it when I was a kid...bo-ring!). The fam (just the nuclear family) was bitching about the drive (even me, and I was driving!) but they all said it was totally worth it at the end of the day. Even after we got stuck in traffic for almost an hour five miles from my house.
On Saturday we went to Jersey in the late afternoon. The boys went to AC to gamble/watch MMA (as last time) and the girls went to dinner and a movie (Bridesmaids...funny!) then we came home, ate cupcakes, and watched a movie on tv (Switch). We slept over in Jersey, drove home to rescue the dog from the hotel, and drove back for a Cuban feast. (My sister's MIL made me chicharrons!) Back and forth back and forth. You do not even want to know how much money I spent on gas!
I'm still 246 blog posts behind. I may comment late or not at all on your posts, but I'm trying to read them as I 1) become the (volunteer) director of communications for the animal rescue I work for and 2) prepare for my other volunteer position's big Garden Tour. (Oh, and do the calligraphy on 75 invitations to the stateside celebration of my sister's recent nuptials.) As you can imagine not much of anything else is going on right now.
However, Flat Flossie is ready to roll. If you'd like to have her visit, go tell Coni.
