We're over in Detroit with family. We had a sweet time yesterday watching children open presents, talking about old times, watching our favorite YouTube clips, sitting around and chewing the fat until the wee hours of the morning, sleeping in...ahhh.
Today, the boys are heading out to a movie and a day on the town. The girls are taking the kids and doing some shopping...which is not considered a girls day out considering the fact that carting around 6 children under the age of 8 cancels out the idea of recreation altogether. But I pray for their souls as the shop with living blobs of Attention Deficit Disorder. May God grant them immunity from the groans and murmurs of the mob.
I'm not sure how much time I'll have to rehearse the journey in the days ahead, but I'll give a valiant effort to that end. I just love spending some time away from the familiar and with the familial.
