Family is the best!

Family dinners can be so enjoyable. Jason's family is just the greatest, whether it's his mom's or his dad's, it doesn't matter. Tonight Jason had to work a night shift at Renegade so I met his dad's family at the Olive Garden in Columbia. A couple uncles came, an aunt came, a cousin, Grandpa, and Karin and Lou, Jason's step mom and dad. They are all such great company and it was fantastic conversation.

Family can be so loyal and heartfelt. There's nothing stronger than family kindness. I had a blast. I of course talked way too much about what's going with me. Sue, Jason's aunt is in the educational field so I had a chance to talk to her about getting into teaching. Hearing her tell stories about the friendships she's made with a few students made me think about that profession more and more. It's funny cause she's not even a teacher, she's more like an IT specialist at a school and she's still had these great moments with a few of the students.

James, Jason's cousin, is studying to be in the dental field and talking to him about getting into the medical arena was also helpful. Grandpa helped me with gardening advise and as always he was a joy to be around. Jason's family is so warm and funny, I love having them nearby. Thanks for dinner Karin and Lou, you are all the best!!

  1. I had a great time too! I can't believe we were there for 2.5 hours. Another occupation you may want to consider is interior design/decorating. I think you would enjoy something like that, plus it's a skill that you could use throughout your life for your own home or as a side business. Just a thought.
