We drove back to my parents' house this morning to pick M up from her weekend with Nana & Papa.
The overcast and windy weather forced a menu change from steaks on the grill to pizza take out. The men and kids stayed in the kitchen while mom, my sister and I set ourselves up in the sun porch. Then the rain showed up. The roofing material on their sun porch magnifies the sound of the rain to a deafening din. For some reason the rain seemed louder than usual. This is why...
We are back to a family of four. It feels good to have balance restored in the house.
