I love reading about everyone's plans.
Being at the ocean would be lovely! I adore the ocean! I don't get to it as often as I'd like, butI like being an easy drive from it. I spent summers in Provincetown (the tip of Cape Cod) every summer until I became a mom.
Camil, your household sounds a lot like mine. I live in a 9 window colonial built in the 1780's. It has been converted to a 2 family in the 50's. My parents bought it in '72 after it had been vacant for over a decade. It was set for demolition. My parents had to do all sorts of things to buy it. My parents live downstairs with their dog and cat and my husband and I live upstairs with my kids (20, 15, and 3). My mom is a witch, so we do celebrate the holidays together. Honestly, we'll be eating from the garden that night probably as a family (except DH who is a non-practicing Catholic and has to work late Friday). My niece is staying with us as well, so she'll be there.
Full agreement about animals being extraordinary! Not so sure about my parents dog, but their cat certainly is.
Reconnect with friends/family is always important, especially after a journey that has included such loss.
Sounds like everyone has some great plans!
