The Husband is the youngest of three boys. I am the youngest with one brother and one sister. I can’t imagine life in a house of all boys because, seriously, they are crazy!
The Husband has a cousin who is married to a comic book artist. Therefore, every year, they come out to go to the San Diego ComiCon. They also take the opportunity to have a mini vacation and visit family while they are out here.
The week of the Con, I gladly work and stay out of the way. The Husband takes the time off and attends the convention with them. I have never been; nor do I have a desire to go. I don’t do crowds very well and am glad to be out of their way for that time.
However, I definitely look forward to the weeks after where we get to spend time together.
This year, Freddie was awesome and came and talked to the teens in my program; he showed them how to draw and talked to them a bit. I have never seen the teens as vigilant as they were while he was talking to them. I am very appreciative for his willingness to come and speak with the kids. I know there are many who loved just watching him draw and meeting him. However, there were a couple who were truly inspired by him.
Today, we drove them up to my brother-in-law’s place and had lunch. We don’t get there often so it’s nice to have a reason to get up there and spend some time. Often times, for the holidays, it’s a busy crazy visit with too many people. However, today, it was just the six of us (and then a short visit from both the nieces and nephews families). It was really a perfect visit.
