It's Over.

Today was the last day of Christmas for my family. My sister is the consummate hostess she loves to have guests. Tonight she made pastitsio. Which made her husband happy. I like Greek food but that's not a favorite.

We had dinner with my Aunt her husband, two cousins, and another uncle. It was nice to see them. I haven't seem most of them for over a year. My aunt camps across the street from my parents. Since I don't go up there I do see them.

I have to say that I am very happy that Christmas is over. My family puts so much pressure on everyone to have a good time that tension doesn't subside time everyone has had a few drinks.

On Sunday I was sitting in her kitchen eating some cereal. I cleared my throat. She was so hyped she started you yell.

"Yeah what do you want?"

"aha, I wanted to clear my throat."

It makes me long for the days when I lived in CA and it wouldn't have bothered because I knew I would be on a plane the next day.

Next year I think I will just sleep in.

Ah, family. Actually the pastitsio sounds good. I'll have to print out that recipe.

Thanks for that!
