Kitty is done with us
Olive the cat in the suitcase.
Each time I pack, this occurs. Olive is finished with our vacations.

We had a tiring but enjoyable weekend. I’ve made the decision that a 6-hour travel on Friday, followed by 6-several hours on Sunday to get home, is too significantly for me.

I don’t thoughts the lengthy drives like we took to Santa Barbara in August. That is simply because we stayed for awhile. My human body had time to take it easy and get well.

We arrived in San Diego Friday with one particular hour to rest and get browse for a 30-minute travel to the marriage venue. What saved us on the travel was listening to “The Rooster Bar” by John Grisham. It is astounding how guides on tape — or Audible — make the drives fly by.

I built the error of scheduling our hotel area in Santee, SC — as an alternative of Santee, CA. Oops.

Who knew there was extra than a person Santee and they’d have motels with the specific same name?

The highlight of our vacation occurred Saturday. We visited my husband’s aunt and uncle who dwell in Santee (for this reason the rationale I booked a lodge there — or assumed I did. Correct town, improper condition.) His cousin shocked us and came too with her son from an hour away.

My husband’s uncle is 93 decades outdated. The final time we observed him was August three years in the past to celebrate his 90th birthday. Mainly because of COVID and then moving we have not visited. I have to say he appears remarkable. He’s full of vitality. He drives, he shops, he cooks, he waits on his wife — my husband’s aunt. He tends to make the greatest Italian foods I’ve at any time eaten. Luciano (the uncle) came to the US from Italy when he was 30 years previous after marrying my husband’s aunt. She satisfied Luciano although she was the metropolis planner of Rome.

Soon after she graduated with a degree from Berkeley in the 1960s, she could not get employed in the U.S. in her field simply because she was a female. Nevertheless, she did get hired in Italy, so she realized Italian and moved.

She’s a dynamo that I’ve constantly seemed up to. Not only has she experienced an awesome profession, she’s published and published at least 15 publications. She’s a environment traveler and experienced a sequence centered on a vacation agent/murder solver. If you’re fascinated, here’s a backlink to R. Ann Siracusa on Goodreads. My favourite book of hers is “Family Secrets and techniques: A Vengeance of Tears.”

If which is not sufficient, she’s a grandmother who actively usually takes care of her grandchildren. And she quilts. She taught my daughter and I how to quilt.

Whew, I’m fatigued imagining about these inspiring family members.

What relations have inspired and influenced you? What’s your restrict for drives on visits?
