Family is very important in one's life because you never know what will happen. We had my family reunion over the weekend. There were eight out of ten brothers and sisters with our extended families there. You think that you have problems, but there is always someone, who has something worse that I feel thankful that hubby doesn't have. My brothers and sisters range from 80's to my youngest sister being 60 so you know none of us are spring chickens.
I think that I can deal with most anything excepting Dementia, which my one brother has. He still driving his car and I think he needs his keys taken away. They say he doesn't go far, but he could get turned around and you would never know where he would go. I don't think I could handle that at home. I think it would put to much stress on me.
The youngest of the extended family was 11 months, but it was a very enjoyable afternoon. There is two weddings in the near future. One in October and I am not sure about the other one. The one in October there is three sets of families with that want to invite everybody. My niece said only if they want to pay for it. It is their only daughter. I am making a wedding present, but I have no idea if I will be invited or not where do you stop. Do you invite just family or what? I will just wait and see if the invitation comes in the mail. The other one is flying to Jamaica to get married and they will have a reception for them later.
What is with kids getting married outside of the US. Is it that much cheaper? Have we priced ourselves to high anymore? Is that why kids are just living together instead of getting married?
We had lots of food and probably ate to much. If you go away hungry then it is no ones fault but your own. My oldest grandson was happy he was going to drive home. I went with my daughter and my youngest grandson. He wanted to meet his family. Lots of visiting, just not enough hours, but we have already reserved the same spot for next year.
Well I am off to see hubby this afternoon. We may have some storms later on. Just have to wait and see. Take care.
