I had a terrific weekend with my Penny and her children, oh and Mont of course. We went to the local park, a museum and on a picnic with mom and dad. It was great to spend time with family. I really needed it this weekend, because this not having a husband around thing is a little harder than I thought it would be. The first day he leaves I feel like crawling in bed and staying there feeling sorry for myself. I know it will get easier with time, changes always do. In the meantime I will just try to stay very busy. And once school starts I won't have a minute of peace to even think about it. But back to the origin of my story, it was fun to see the cousins spend time with each other, laugh and play, and be silly together. There is some common grounds that makes it so easy for cousins to fall right into being friends, and I love that.
