Still and all, other than being tired and still having a lot to catch up both in the house and online, things are not too bad. I gained weight over Christmas, but have more or less taken it back off again, and am ready to look for new lows. I completely fell off the exercise wagon, but have got in a little walking over the last few days. One day probably too much, and knocked myself backwards again. Oh well.
For the first time in years, everybody in the entire extended family was in one place at one (actually two) time, so we took family portraits. This was my eldest son's gift to the family. He has a high-falutin' camera, with a new gizmo on it that enables him to control it from his iPhone, so he could stand with the family, check the photo on his screen, and activate the shutter too. There were 23 or 24 of us in the picture, I will have to count. Ages ranged from 7 months to 84 years. This was a very precious thing, because the great-grandparents are getting fragile, and getting everybody together is always a challenge. It will probably never happen again.
I will try to get around to everybody's journals over the next day or two or three, but I've really got to go tackle some of the backlog around here. It will go slowly, because I still don't have all my energy back. Oh well.
