For some reason I had a difficult time getting back into the groove of eating dinner at the table after Christmas vacation. We just got back into it at the end of January when Costume Central came to town. Now we've been back to saying our mealtime prayer standing in the kitchen then splitting up to our various casual dinner locales.
I really do miss connecting with the family at the dinner table, especially my husband who just kind of fades into the background when we don't eat at the table. I'm sure he's really running away because I think Costume Central scares him.
I think I can coax him out of his den by ridding the table of the sewing machine, fabric and patterns. We'll have to be really careful all of it gets picked up so it doesn't scare him off again.
It could be he's just scared of me. It's one of those things where you don't want to walk too close to the fray or you'll get swept up into the chaos of it all.
Won't my sister be so glad she came to visit this weekend?
