Times of Gathering

Winter holds an abundance of reasons for familial and social gatherings. Christmas, New Year’s Day, freakishly cold and wet weather that causes a desire to spend a lot of time inside and not out on one’s own… This past weekend, Tom and I visited his family for tree trimming and church. After church, we went to a friend’s house. Now, I had never met this friend in person before. We’ve been Facebook friends since the dawn of my relationship with Tom. But due to his stint in the army, he was unable to be a groomsman in our wedding. He was very much missed.

Like any good wife, I sat down and watched the game with the boys and Tom’s friend’s family. Being from Seattle, we initially all were rooting for the Seahawks. I was, too, until the 40+ points to nothing. 50-something to nothing? That’s a big deal. And I really, really liked Tom’s friend. He’s a goofball and a sweetheart. It was extremely refreshing to meet someone and like them right off the bat.

This weekend, we’re going down to visit my family for tree trimming. The following weekend? Well, I get 4 whole days off. And we’re doing the child-of-divorce Christmas thing where we spend one day with one family and the next with the other family. Yeah, it’s a little wonky. But hey, they live close-ish enough together almost to make it doable. So why not? Then I get exactly one week before Tom’s birthday. We have to figure out something to do. Blah, so hard to buy for this man. But I love him anyway. 🙂
