Greetings from Stormy Florida

We're in Florida! With the wee little baby niece and her parents! All is calm, all is bright over here. Well, actually all is calm, all is rainy. But nice weather would've been wasted on us anyway, as all we wanted to do when we got in this morning after coming in on the red-eye was sleep. And we did. All afternoon.

Or rather, RW and I slept. Mermaid Girl stayed up, cuddled her baby cousin, nagged my very patient sister-in-law to bake cookies, decorated their tree with innumerable candy canes, and occasionally jumped on my stomach and admonished me, apropos of nothing that I could tell, that she was very angry at me and that she wasn't going to get over it. I'm not sure what I did. I was just soooo sleeeeeepy.

Then, just after we finished opening presents, and just before the Chinese food was to arrive for dinner, she sacked out cold on a living room chair. She is there still.

So many things to write about. It feels like it's been weeks. Maybe it was that all-night flight that aged me. (Did you know it's snowing in Detroit? Also that their airport has the coolest red shuttle train? It was an educational if exhausting layover, over there at 3 AM our time.)

Wishing the happiest of holidays/Christmases to those of you celebrating. I miss you folks. I was thinking of you on the plane. Is that weird?

yeah what udge said! I love reading about you and your family.

Did you ever figure out why MG was so very angry?

No, it's not weird to be thinking of us on the plane. (Dare I include myself in the us?! Maybe that's just a bit presumptuous. Oh well!) It does seem like it's been weeks.

Welcome to the right coast, btw. Enjoy your visit to Florida. Safe travels and happy holidays! :)
