Where I have been.

Monday, September 28, 2009

The past 30 days have been pretty hectic. My grandfather entered hospice. I have spent many evenings at the hospital or visiting family. I have kept myself busy with work and my knitting. He passed away last week.
The family dinner was held at my grandmother's house yesterday.
Remember the days when we had to sit at the kid's table during family events? Now that my first cousins and I are all over 28 we have the option to sit where ever we want. Yet we still group together at one table in particular and tell inside jokes and stories until our parents tell us to move to let the "old folks" have a seat.
We cannot win.
The younger children in their teens for some odd reason like to sit with us. I think it was a way for them to avoid the little kids table by hanging out with the almost middle aged aunts and second cousins. Of course, our experiences mean that we pity the youngsters and let them sit with us until they are shooed outside with the grammar school kids.

I haven't had so much fun in years. I never thought I would sit at a table with my niece and my cousin's children trading barbs with them. My sister and I noticed that when we were their ages, we would have been banished from the company of adults.

Well, I need to get ready for the Wake. If you are interested the funeral information is here http://tinyurl.com/ycsso4v
