Boundaries, Part 2

As I reflect on my day in Big Stone Gap, I am reminded that parents often do know best. Here are just a few of the reasons why it was good to come home:
  1. It is rare for all of my brothers to be here at once, and when I'm with them I feel like I did when we were kids, no matter how old we get.
  2. Karaoke.
  3. I got to carve a pumpkin with two of my nieces, and now they want to make it an annual ritual.
  4. They're filming the movie "Big Stone Gap" on location, and one of the locations is my parents' neighborhood.
  5. Lechon.
  6. The entire Filipino community is reading my blog and they aren't mad at me.  In fact, I'm probably going to get a lot of gigantic wooden spoons and forks for Christmas.
  7. Birthday cake.
  8. It turns out that blogging about not being assertive is a good way to let people know that you don't want to hear that you've gained weight.  
  9. I got to take some great pictures.
  10. Sometimes my family drives me crazy, but at the end of the day, they are also the people who love me the most.
