Blog entry 10/6 for Thursday, 9/18 and Friday, 9/19.
In my last post, I got us (Eve, Rick and myself) safely to Rick’s brother’s house in Marysville, WA. Over the next couple of days a lot of … nothing … happened. There had been some tentative plans, but nothing really jelled. Besides, the three of us were still decompressing from Tour DaVita, and I hadn’t seen Mike (Rick’s brother) in a long time (and I had never met Loni or Bella – or their cat, Mia). In addition to all that, Rick and Mike’s mom, Sharon, was flying in for a visit, which put a constraint on what we could do on the 18th anyway (Sea-Tac is about an hour away from Marysville, and Sharon was arriving midmorning if I remember correctly).
So I met Bella:
and played a lot of Cards Against Humanity. I learned a lot about my daughter and her husband with this game – as I’m sure they did about me. I never managed to win, though – that “honor” most frequently went to Rick or Mike.
And of course we ate delicious Loni-prepared meals, slept a lot, and read a lot. And talked. And had pizza one night.
So a quiet couple of days passed, and everyone had a good time doing, well, very little.
