As a general rule of thumb, my family is pretty crazy. And every time I’m headed home, I have massive amounts of trouble controlling my excitement.
It’s not like we go out and party a lot. Or even go to nice restaurants, or shows, or plan outdoor picnics (like these are the most exciting things in the world…). All we do it SIT around at home (maybe make a Target run to pick some some snacks), and laugh.
You can see the hysterics.
Whenever I depart from a weekend with the family, I feel like I have a six pack from laughing. I clearly and most certainly don’t, but it feels good to have laughed so hard even your abs are pleased with you (for once – as opposed to eating Cool Ranch Doritos & Jalapeno Kettle Chips at BBH everyday, at which point your entire body is just pissed).
Needless to say I’m so excited to see everyone for the first time in 2012 (I did see my little sis, but it was so fast I don’t really count it). It’s going to be a good one.
So excuse me if I put my “social” life on hold and spend time with the people I love. You know you’d do it too.
