My day was spent packing. Packing for our annual Paul Family Reunion trip to Corsicana, TX. I'm pooped.
My aunt and uncle and cousins are visiting from St. Louis this week. They normally come down for Red Earth but skipped it this year because my aunt went to France (she's a French teacher).
Yesterday evening the kids went and swam in the pool of the Marriott Residence Inn where they're residing for the week. Normally they stay with mom and dad but since we're going out of town they decided to snag a hotel. That also means my grandmother can stay with them and visit. She doesn't like to come over to my parents house any more. Don't ask. It's a long (and weird) story.
Mom took Duncan and Cal over there today as well and they swam during the afternoon while I packed. I left our house around 3:30, picked up my comics and headed to mom's. I dropped Duncan off at Tae Kwon Do and then went back to mom's to help her finish dinner.
We then had a big family dinner with my dad, all of us, mom, my aunt, uncle, cousins Nathan, Mary and Nicholas. Nicholas and Cal are just a few months apart in age and get along pretty well. He's Nathan and Mary's kid. I used to babysit Nathan. In fact, people often thought I was his mother. Scary.
I hustled us out of there around 8:00 so we could come home and finish getting crap ready for our four day weekend in Texas. I'm sure I'll forget something. Oh well. If it's something important I'll just buy it there.
