My Family

Back to the 52-week blogging challenge. Today's prompt is "Meet My Family."

I could do this two ways. One is "Meet My Dysfunctional Family" where most of us are on some sort of psychotropic drugs. Or Two is "Meet My Family, ain't they grand?"

My nuclear family consists of my wife whom I've been married to for nearly 35 years. We have three sons, all in their 20s and all at various stages toward being independent. One has a job in Portland, Oregon, one is in college (still), and one lives in our basement and delivers pizza for Dominoes. He likes to play Dungeons and Dragons with friends on his days off.

My mother, who got remarried in September, lives in the same town as I do. As do my older brother and sister. My father also lives here. He lives alone in his own house. Growing up in a small town in Idaho, we used to make fun of families that all lived in the same town they grew up in. Now we all live in the same town. But in our defense, it wasn't the town we grew up in.

Like all families we have issues. But unlike a lot of families, we don't spew them out on Facebook.

Nor in blogs.

What's your family like?
