I have a pretty fantastic family.  And not just immediate family, as I chronicle in the You Should Read This First series.  My extended family is pretty incredible.

Sometimes I forget that.  Sometimes I get annoyed with the nonsense and the frustrations that come with family life.

And then my cousin and I debate the merits of different villains for the new Abrams Star Trek with my dad chiming in.  Plus some forays into the new Hobbit and all it’s trappings.  Geek abounds, as well as some good memories shared.

Sometimes I need a little reminder.

But my family is AMAZING.
