The Heartland

This weekend I made a visit down to my roots, my homeland, my clan. It was a great weekend, but like anything in life, it had it's pro's and con's:

Visiting Redlands:
Pro- saying "hello" to well-missed individuals
Con- saying "goodbye" to my dear husband

Sleeping at the Drazin House:
Pro- a bed to myself in which I was able to hog the covers with no complaints
Con- being wakened early Sat morning by a sister who had to work

A Day With Mom:
Pro- catching up with mummy on all types of things
Con- learning from mummy all types of things I didn't know about my family (namely my brother)

Surprise Birthday Lunch for Mom:
Pro- excitement with seeing relatives and Mom's shocked expression
Con- trying to get 15 people to order their food and then recognize it when it's served

Playing Mario with little brother Andrew:
Pro- learning all types of secrets, like keys and pipes and star roads
Con- beating a level on his game, but having to try and beat it all over again on my own game
