Saturday - I frankly don't remember anything that far back... I'm sure I cleaned the house, and I vaguely remember a teenager arriving back from scout camp and refusing to pitch in :(
Sunday - expecting early company I didn't sleep well... and the sleep I went without would have come in handy later. Company didn't arrive until much later that day after having a little wildlife experience (stupid deer should really learn not to jump in front of cars...) - luckily everyone is okay, although the car has seen much better days!
Monday - The time-share condos didn't allow check-in until the afternoon so my home was the unofficial welcome center for about 20 of the 80 reunion attendees... Haven was so worried that I would make her clean her room again by herself after all of the insanity - and really I'll help her, as soon as I finish this! Then eating dinner with relatives I hardly ever see, watching a video and trying to smile for a picture... and playing cards.
Tuesday - we got back to the reunion around noon - sometimes it's good to live nearby... and swam, and swam - until I had to help get dinner together and served - which in hindsight I'm sure I didn't do a very good job of helping with - but my kids got served and I ate something - and then we sang songs and did Karaoke (no, I didn't sing anything) and played cards... but not nearly as long as the night before.
Wednesday -the kids swam with an uncle and aunt - I couldn't handle anymore sun and chlorine - there was a free condo so after the dinner and songs, and family meeting, we stayed at the condo... which allowed me to hang out with my grandma, mom, a cousin, sister, uncle, son, etc... playing cards - just 'til midnight this time :)
Thursday - oh yeah, that's today - everyone had to be out of there to attend my cousins' sealing in Manti - and so during the morning I went from Condo to Condo and picked up my outdoor chairs, leftovers, coolers etc... the car was so full that 3 kids had to jump over the seats and a cooler in order to buckle in for the trip home... and we got home just in time to have my mom drop by and trade a few mis-packed items and my uncle to call and meet me at the Albertson's nearest the exit to pass on the leftover lasagnas - which have already made their way to other families who I hope will fully enjoy what the immense Bugg family could not consume (and trust me... we like our food)
Currently - I am killing time that I don't have because what I should really be doing is straightening up and putting the house back in order - we have company arriving - they're spending the day at Bryce Canyon but are crashing here tonight... it will be good to have a last dose of family since I realized after everyone left that it's kind of a bummer to be the one so far away from family...
