A shift in July plans – Visiting Home

Standard

Wednesday, 07-July-2021 through Wednesday, 14-July-2021


After the funeral, I couldn’t bring myself to fly back to Oregon immediately. It didn’t seem right… I had the opportunity to work remotely, and my family was grieving… why wouldn’t I stay for some time?

I went to visit my Aunt first, but after spending a few days with her I headed back to my childhood home, to spend time with my Mom, Stepdad, and Sister.

It’s been so long since we’ve all lived under the same roof… it felt good, if a little strange. We’re all the same people, even if a few years have gone by… but we definitely interact a bit differently. A bit more calmly, I like to think.

Anyways, we had a good time. We worked, we ate, we chatted, and we enjoyed spending time together.
