My mom has sadly returned to the east coast, and life is slowly returning to some semblance of normal here in Casa de Moose & Squirrel. I’ll be playing catch-up all this week, hoping (likely in vain) to stick to a few self-appointed deadlines. More importantly, this time spent with my mom, my brother, my wife, my mother-in-law, and my son served as a powerful reminder of how wonderful family can be. Plus, this was the first time in adult memory that four people named Peniston sat down together without things turning into a great big fight.
I hope you all had a wonderful time with friends and family. Now get back to work! (That was for me.)
