If you didn’t already know, I am on vacation and for the latter part of this week, I have been out at a family reunion in southern Michigan. Also, for those of you who don’t know, my extended family is pretty large (currently over 100) and we have a little over half of people in attendance.
So, an interesting fact about how the demographics of this week-end are
that there are a seemingly disproportionate amount of young children who all have TOO MUCH ENERGY!!!! Where does it come from? They ate the exact same breakfast but for some reason, they are being energized while all of us “adults” are pretty calmly sitting around and conversing.
If you thought the experience was bad with kids running around, here is worse. Of the 50+ people, I’m sure that 20+ are kids (under 11). Well I’m sure the parents don’t mind too much because theoretically, if they are all expending their energy now, they won’t have it later. Is this really the case?
I doubt so, because it seems like these kids could try out for the next energizer commercial and even possibly out-run the rabbit.
Anyways, I’m alive and somewhat mellow during this time of chaos.
Another thing of note, is that one of my uncles was in the hospital in critical condition for the past several days, and we found out this morning that he ended up passing away.
Am I really sad? No. I wasn’t really very close to him, and I knew his health was real bad, and so it really was a blessing that he was alive this long. I’m not sure how old he was, but he was up there in years.
Well, I’m signing off. I should go and be social with people. Have a great weekend.
