Family overload

Three straight days of family gatherings: survived. Check that one off the list for another year.

It was fun, of course. I like my family and I like T's family, and during our time with the latter I got to talk with aunts and uncles and cousins I haven't seen very often, or ever in some cases. So it was nice to have the chance to get to know them a little better. They're more than just names on a chart now.

Speaking of which, somehow we got volunteered to be the maintainers of the online family tree. Or at least to find some place to host it. One of T's uncles (actually, he's a cousin, but he's older than T's father so T thinks of him as an uncle. The connections get confusing when you're dealing with the offspring of thirteen siblings born over the span of 30 years) has been the keeper of the family website, but he's been slow to update it, so we're going to search for some site where it's easy for anyone in the family to log in and fix errors or make updates and post pictures. Should be straightforward enough, right?

Fun, but tiring. (How often do I post that these days?) It's good to be home and just kick back and play Mario Kart for awhile.
