They're Back!

The family arrived home safely Saturday evening. It is really good to have them back. While they were gone someone asked how lonely it was in an empty home. Lunch and dinner time were the worst. It was so quiet, I'd have to turn the TV on to have a little noise. The irony, of course, is that when the house is full, M and I are always telling the kids to be quiet and eat.

The time away was good for the kids, though. I've noticed that Elli seems a bit more mature and considerate than she had been. She also stopped taking Zyrtec. What's the connection? Marjorie took some a week or two ago and felt very angry and irritated, and realized that Elli acted like that all the time. It is a rarely reported side-effect. Makes us wonder.
