Since my sister was visiting for a very brief window of time, I summoned all my resources (and rented a few more) and managed to get over to my parents' new place with the kids to say hi. Say hi, eat dinner, play cards, say bye. I figured as long as I had to collect everyone, we might as well get pictures taken on the way. This took longer than I thought it would, but it's a relief to be done with it. Except I feel as though I should be sending cards out now that I have all these pictures.
Brian was scheduled to be out all next week, but his revised plan is to be here instead. That is good news; I was starting to wear out.
