You're never too old to...  
I'm sorry if I sounded bitchy, or offended anyone with my last entry. I realize that there are plenty of people who wanted to be with their families on the 4th, and could not-- and my sympathies go out to them. The politics of my extended family, however, have always been difficult for me, and I was just incredibly frustrated when I posted. I love my Mom, brother, and nieces dearly, but... everyone else feels like a stranger, really. *passes out chocolate to everyone* Thank you for putting up with me.

I did survive last night-- the highlight of which was definitely Tyler (my cousin John's son) setting Sam's lawn on fire. X_x I stayed over with Sam and the girls so that we could say goodbye to my Mom together this morning. She's off to the Dominican Republic (her first out-of-country trip! *sniffle*) for the next week. I always feel silly crying at thirty-something, but I am going to miss her and worry about her. Having her leave after visiting us makes it a little harder-- I can't pretend she's still safely in Rhode Island. ^_~;;;

Sam and the girls just got back from Illinois late on Saturday, so we'll probably spend the week catching up. We saw War of the Worlds on Sunday (Dakota Fanning is one talented little actress), and we'll probably also go see Batman Begins soon. I'm not tutoring this week, so my only commitments are to the stack of rented videos by my DVD player, and my languishing attempts to write. I think Carol is on vacation too. *much pouting*

Love you all,

*huggles* I don't think you offended anyone. You just have a more ... annoying extended family than most and so it's hard.

And ... tv... movies... *sniffles* Our TV is currenly devoid of sound--:) So we're thinking of just getting a nice (big) new one. ^__^

*huggles back* That's a very diplomatic way of putting things! ^_~

I'm sorry about your TV-- I hope you can get a (nice, big) new one to enjoy.

*hugs* Nothing to put up with. I wish I could share my (admittedly sometimes clinically insane) family with you; you'd have a good time with us. :)

*hugs back* You're a sweetie. If you're family is insane, then they have a very charming way of going about it. ^_~ (Instead of mine, which seems to be raising budding arsonists. ^^;;)
