Dan’s family left us this morning while I slept.Â I miss them already.Â The 3 day visit seemed too short and disorganized.Â We didn’t plan ahead what we would do or talk to them about their expectations for the trip.Â So when it came time to go do something, we’d sit around like the vultures in Jungle Book asking each other what we wanted to do until the sun went down and then we’d hang out some more, eat some food and stay up way too late.
It was a fun and informative visit.Â My sister-in-law, a financial coach, got us pumped to take over the world through strategic planning and mission statements.Â We are excited toÂ let our money “work for us.”Â
With the help of some aunts, Magoo learned to say “poo” and Laylee can now say “I am terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.”Â I guess it’s a quote from Ghostbusters.
They also gave Laylee her first gumball,
which she tried desperately to keep an eye on.
When I woke up this morning, they were gone.Â My house is much cleaner now than when they arrived, my fridge much more full, and the fact that I don’t live near any family weighs heavily on my mind and heart.
