We have returned from the grandma tour of 2010 and, although I loved spending time with both my family and Mike’s family, I am happy to be back home. There were a couple of minor hiccups along the way but now I am settled (very temporarily) in NH, beginning to pack and take care of the seemingly endless to-do list I made. I am just happy to be in the same place for the next week.
We spent a total of about 5 days with our respective grandparents and, boy, does it change your perspective spending that much time with people 80 plus. Everything moves…slower. There is a deeper appreciation of family, food, weather – you name it. It was nice to slow our pace temporarily as we enter this final stretch before leaving.
