I have survived my family for the holidays. My parents even returned to Roanoke with Lis & I today to deliver our Christmas present: a new cabinet for our home theatre stuff.
Of course, my mom had to stop along the way for lunch, which allowed for Lis & I to get home first & do some emergency cleaning to bring the place into a semi-respectable state. And some pre-arrival moving of stuff to make room for the new cabinet.
Everything is rearranged and assembled and functioning. Time to recover from the holidays....
