The day before yesterday, I saw Vincent hided in our Study alone doing his own things. When asked, he said that with all these days together, elbow-to-elbow, he had a lot of fun. But, still, he likes to have some quiet time alone. How true is it? Indeed, Rena and I are very glad to see them all coming. But, also, very glad to see them all leaving. But, after their departures, we feel a bit lost yet still look forward for the next family re-union. And, hopefully, our family size will be bigger slightly.
The night before their departures, we held a family meeting. Vincent was included. In it, we congratulated ourselves and each other about our re-union and Jeremy was elected unanimously as our “Family Travel Agent” to plan for the next one, next year.
Of course, we had a lot of laundries to do. Dishes to wash. Floor to be vacuumed. Clean-up to do and put everything back to where it belongs, as we prefer. And, above all, fortunately, we had a chance to do all these. Better to do something like these than not be able to do anything.
As Vincent’s, Rena and I would also like to have some quiet time alone. Therefore, we are going to celebrate our 44th anniversary on Friday (8/22) alone – a precious, quiet time just for ourselves.
