My way of living a healthy lifestyle would be to spend it with family and just have a good time with all the family members that you are around. Who cares about eating healthy or exercising on that one family day. Laughter, talking about childhood experiences and talk about your kids is the best medicine for some fun to get rid of the stress which is unhealthy. Why did I mention family reunion? Well, I’m going to my family reunion (mom’s side of family) this coming Saturday. I can’t wait for this reunion because a lot of family members that will be there that I though they was only a myth but it turns out that they are real people who I just never met.
This reunion is important to me as I’m one of the family members who is on the panel who was apart of the planning stages which ranges from food, tables, chairs, games for kids, chinese auction, t-shirts…etc We going all out because this is the very first family reunion ever. Even on my dad’s side of the family they never had one. Our family is 100% italian and my Aunt (mom’s older sister) spent 5 months working on the whole family tree and got it completed. She created a booklet with all the information in it and have a section to pay respects to the family members that first came over to america in 1915 from Italy who are no longer with us. All of us panel members been stressed out the past few months because we don’t want this to be a mess but a perfect reunion where everyone understands the whole family tree and be proud of our ancestors that made the journey to america to have a better life.
I have to drive 2 and half hours on Friday to help set up my cousin’s house for the huge party that will have 90 people in total. Her neighbors will hate her after the party because we italians get crazy when we drink a lot of wine and liquor. We also talk with our hands a lot. Anyways, good old fun with the family can and will relieve some stress that I have over planning this reunion with a few other family members and the stress I have from my career Job. I know I’ll come back to work on Tuesday and back online on Monday a happy man. Might still not be sober but I know I’ll be happy that I got to meet family members that I have never seen and get to know more about our family history and perhaps hang out with them more as I’ll get there contact information.
Since I work in the IT industry for a living, I’m going to reach out and let the family know that they can contact me for any computer/laptop issues and I’ll see what I can do for free. Well I’ll say if you make me dinner, that is the best payment you can give me. I work for food. lol
Anyways, if you feeling a bit stressed which is not good for health wise, plan a family party to just chill out and catch up on old memories and leave the work stress or online business stress at your house. A bit of fun is just what the doctor ordered.
Now starting on this coming Friday, my online time will be very limited the whole weekend. Please be patient for me to get back to you. Turning the laptop on will not be on my to-do-list that much but I’ll be around briefly. btw, StudioPress just launched their new homepage design. Check it out and see what’s changed.
(I hope we don’t get to crazy at the reunion that the cops come. lol)
Have a great weekend folks!!
If your family has family reunion’s, how did it go? (I’m just worried that something will go wrong and we panel members forgot something)
