I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
So, this was how I spent last weekend. Let's call it Sleepless in Seattle, because we were in Seattle and we got very little sleep. We are only missing 2 cousins from my dad's side of the family.
We talked and laughed and ate and drank and talked some more. I heard more good family gossip than ever before. Some cousins hadn't seen each other for 48 years!
It was great getting to know one another again. And I think I heard absolutely everyone say, "Mosquitoes love me!" Now I know where this trait comes from!
