The Limits of Love

A week ago Saturday, my sister and Bear drove from Michigan to Cincinnatti to get the kids to my dad for vacation. They returned home for a brief stay before driving a couple hours north to Bear's parents house while his dad had heart surgery (he's doing fine). They left northern Michigan and drove to Knoxville, TN for the rest of their vacation at my dad's. This Monday they made the long trek back to Michigan and returned home shortly after a severe storm had passed through town, leaving the town and many surrounding without power. 2400 miles in the car together over the past week and now no television, no computer and no dvr for two days, left my sister to remark to Bear last night, "I'm sorry, but I just don't like you this much."
