Day 3065: Family members

As more and more of my family members are getting vaccinated, I am now spending more time with them. Yesterday, I attended a surprise graduation party for my husband Michael’s sister Lydia, who was the Salutatorian — the student who ranked second highest in a graduating class of 1000! At the party, we family members watched Lydia’s virtual, on-line graduation ceremony, which included her talking about family members in a pre-taped interview.

Earlier in the day, I had posted a question about family members on Twitter.


Some of my Twitter “family members” had interesting replies:


I am not more judgmental of Michael’s family members, as I hope you can see in the photos I took yesterday at his brother John’s house (which always gives me lots of material for this blog).

Congratulations to my sister-in-law and Salutatorian Lydia, a sweet, wonderful, and accomplished family member.

Here’s “The Family Song” from Sesame Street:

What do my blogging “family members” have to say about this post?

This family member is grateful for all her family members, including YOU.

  2. I think we are sensitive to our family members’ judgments, Ann.
