After family reunions are over, we wave good-bye to our favorite cousins uncles and aunts while reliving the jokes, awkward moments and all the goods and bads with a happy broad smile on our faces.
After watching them disappear we turn back. It's like turning back to our old lives from a dream. Then the reality sets into focus (with thought of dealing with the after party). With that our smile slowly starts to fade away and the last couple of days starting to feel like a dream. The house feels like a little lonely without the family, unbearables included.
The talks of staying in touch,well, we all know how that goes. Things will go back to normal and all will dread the next reunion since most of family reunions are funerals, I'm glad it wasn't the case this time And hopefully next time as well.
