Back from the Wake...

And actually feeling decently. It was good to see people that I hadn't seen in at *least* 6 years, even if it WAS because of a death.

Everyone was MORE than civil... and I actually wound up somewhat *enjoying* the latter part of the visit. It was nice to be able to focus on the *good* memories, and have my now GROWN cousin agree that it boiled down to age and stubbornness that basically escalated all over the place - and that it just didn't make sense. Drama. That's it.

I got to meet my cousin's fiance, who really does seem like a nice guy. I'm happy about that... and she seems like she may finally have a decent head on her shoulders. Which, all crazy childhood-ness aside, I'm rather happy about.

I got to see some "family" that grew up with my mom that I hadn't seen in ages, either... and that was GREAT. I really missed them, and got their email and such to be able to keep in touch from now on.

All in all, I think it was a good experience... I can only hope that maybe it will continue on some level without the tragedy to spurn it.
