Hm. Blogging is hard.

After about three days of cleaning my apartment and vaguely grabbing some alone time, my parents are in town for a few days. This is mega-family visit month! I do kind of feel like I need to sit quietly and stare at a wall, but it's nice to have them in town. I only see them about twice a year now, and I miss them. I took them to the Homegrown Alabama market today, and my dad surprise-bought a bunch of lovely sunflowers, which made me feel all melty inside (also the heat was making me feel that way).

Tomorrow, they meet boyfriend for the first time. This will be the first time they meet a boyfriend. No reason to be nervous, I say! Lovely people all around, surrounded by good food--can't go wrong.
