Eve of 2012

We are empty nesters again.
And spending the day in recovery mode.
My thought was to energetically spend the day taking down the tree and starting to re-box and better organize and label all of the items the kids sorted through during their short stay.

The kids both got out of town in states of severe drowsiness. Their goals were both to sleep on the plane.
Ashlan is now back at work and life in NYC.
Rey is now back in Michigan for a day or two, before returning to Tennessee to start his 4th year as a member of the Smokies organization.
We have only found a list of bowl game picks that Rey left, and some books that we were planning to send his way instead of carrying them on the plane.

The kids, however, each managed to leave town with an ORCA bus pass. (The Seattle use it anywhere pass for getting around.)

Our day started with Rey’s departure, early.
I wasn’t sure I would be able to go back to sleep after a trip to the airport and back, but in the end it happened rather quickly. We did not rise until almost 11 AM (unheard of). Just in time for the bowl games of the day to start. We are using Rey’s list of bowl game picks to determine who we want to win.

Our last planned act of 2011 will be to finish the ham.
The pea soup went at lunch/dinner time. (Getting up late really messes up mealtimes.)

Happy and safe New Year’s Eve to all.
See you in the new year.

    Nice to have them home, but also relaxing when they leave. I love having the girls here–but Alison’s demon cat is driving all of us nuts. (including her!)
