Family Time Ahead....

Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city...

The next few days I will be spending with my family. Have been waiting for this for quite
 some time and finally it is here.  I will be fortunate to see my parents, and 3 of my 4 sisters.
I will also be seeing many of my nieces and nephews.  Always happy for that.  As 
you can imagine with big families it is almost impossible to get everyone together
at the same time.  I'm just grateful to have the opportunity to see them.

I start out going to Washington DC.  From there will be staying with Rima and
family in Virginia for a little.  Then our trip takes us to Philadelphia to Nina and David, 
Max and Danielle.  Max is going to start graduate school in North Carolina and in his
honor Nina and David are hosting a BBQ for family.  Can't wait to see them.  

Have not seen Max and Danielle for so long.  Unfortunately Arvid cannot come with me.
  We just came back from Norway and there is way too much to do.  All Arvid wants
 me to do is to tell Danielle that he beat her time and moves in Solitaire. 

 She owes him $1.00 on a bet they had, but he says to not collect it.  He prefers 
to collect it in person when he sees Danielle.  Those two have 
some good times together when she is with us.

I am still tired from our Norway "vacation."  It has been a little exhausting this year, but
 I know that once I see my parents, sisters their spouses, nieces and nephews
 that will disappear. Very excited for this visit.  Short, but sometimes those 
are the best.  We spend lots of quality time together and catch up on
 just about everything and everyone "gossip."

Hello everyone.  Wishing you all a good day and as always,
my you live in interesting times.  Always.

When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you 
without flinching -- they are your family...
