My husband plus I do not get to see our families actually often, but it is constantly refreshing plus lovely when my associate and I do.
My family is ten hours away from us, so my associate and I see them the least.
The one time of year that brings us all together is Christmas. I have constantly enjoyed Christmas, but since it is the only time of year that I see my family now, I appreciate it so much more than ever before. My friend and I constantly go to my Grandmother’s home on Christmas morning. She has a big, seasoned home that fits all forty-four of us. She is easily a wonderful host. She cooks so well, plus my associate and I look forward to her baked goods each year. The only thing that drives the whole family absurd is how hot she keeps her house. I do not blame her for keeping the temperature control set at seventy-five or eighty degrees when it is just her at home, but when all forty plus of us family members come over, it raises the temperature another ten to fifteen degrees. It literally feels like a sauna in her house. On top of almost everyone in the house, she also cooks plus bakes the entire morning which adds even more heat to the already warm house. Many of us have tried to talk to her about it, although she just does not seem to understand why my associate and I would want to set the temperature control as low as sixty-five degrees. She literally looked at me in horror when I suggested that to her. I appreciate spending time with the family, but my associate and I all wish it could be in a little cooler environment.
