I am laying in bed with the laptop, paying bills (the best way to do an icky job!), listening to the rain outside. Most of this week was unusually hot, so the rain is a blessing.
Yesterday was crazy busy, but full of fun surprises--especially a surprise visit from my cousin Ryan. We are only about a month apart in age, and didn't get along very well as children (it was all his fault, he was a pill--I was perfect!--hey, it's my blog!) He lives clear on the other side of the country, so many years have gone between visits. Anyway, it is fun to get to know him as a grownup (he is quite delightful now, I am happy and relieved to report!) I am always surprised and delighted by how charismatic and charming all of my cousins on that side of the family are. Even the ones that are screwups are fun, charismatic screwups!
