Now you can tell I’m just quoting things for kicks. My entry yesterday morning was from Aliens — this one’s from the Firefly theme. Just got home from a baby blessing for my cousin’s new son Daniel. The party was at my uncle Jim’s house and I got to see and speak with some of the family. Lots of people there — aunts, uncles, cousins, and in-laws (I don’t know all of their official designations).

I can see, just how having the whole thing swirling around you could … I mean, it makes sense to me how some people could have their family be their whole life. When you have a lot of people in your life, you don’t need a whole lot beyond that. I feel kind of drained, though. I’m happy to see everyone, and I’m also happy to be home. It just isn’t something I’m used to, being surrounded by people all the time.

Not sure what has the Firefly tune running through my head. I think it has something to do with family — being part of Mal’s crew on the ship was like being part of a family, I guess. *shrug* Something about the freedom to choose, the freedom to go wherever you want, to just pick up and go, and settle wherever you like. Knowing you might not always be welcome, but somewhere there’s a place for you.

Hm. I have a bunch of stuff that needs doing. I should figure out what needs to be done first and get to it. I know there’s a lot waiting for me.
