Stranded and Loving It

   We have been at a Holiday Inn in Nowhere, NM, waiting out Storm Goliath.  I have loved it: sleeping 12 hours a night, swimming and using the hot tub, exercising, knitting, and not cooking. 🙂  
    My favorite moment was playing our new game, Say Anything.  The whole family was playing.  It’s a bit like Apples to Apples, but you are guessing the family member’s taste or preferences about various things.  “What is my dream house?” Or “What would I most hate giving a toddler?” and everyone makes a guess.  Boy, we laughed and laughed.  It was so much fun.
    It is quite a reading on your family, to all be stranded together.  Do we fight?  Mope?  Bicker?  Seeing how we all just frolicked and played–whether building igloos outside or playing cards, games or telling stories–was a beautiful thing to experience.
