Katie is napping.
Roper and Erica are in the basement laying down a few tracks.
I should go downstairs and do some more cleaning up from the party, but I figured I take a moment to reflect...
It was a great party. It was my family.
I don't have a lot of close genetic family left. Really, just my brother and a cousin in Green Bay. I have other cousins, but I was never vary close to them.
My parents are both gone. All my aunts and uncles as well.
But in the last few years my sister-in-law's family have pulled us in. And I have friends that I love more than I would have thought possible without genetics or sex.
I almost got teary at one point last evening, feeling all the love. Katie never has to worry about not having an extended family.
