My parents were able to spend the last couple days visiting us. They were on their way to a reunion with their military friends, and they were able to stop here along the way. As always, the visit went way too fast. Here are my thoughts on the visit…. 1) I realized that I don’t dust anymore unless we’re having guests or having someone over for dinner. I probably should be embarrassed by this fact, but I’m not. 2) I forgot how much fun it is to be a tourist in your own town. 3) Even small towns have some fun things to do, like eating ice cream cones at a local shop. 4) Only in a military family would it not be strange to be exchanging (but not yet unwrapping) Christmas gifts with family in early October when we have the chance to see them. 5) Having family visit is the perfect excuse to make a ridiculous amount of food for meals. (I should have had my parents sign a waiver that we are not responsible for any weight they might have gained on the brief visit.) 6) My dad and my husband are so much alike that it’s eerie sometimes. 7) My mom and I are so much alike that it’s eerie sometimes. 8) I’m excited and already starting to plan for our Thanksgiving and Christmas family visitors.
