Happy reunions

While in Ottawa I had a chance to see my aunt Michaele and her son Heath, along with my other cousin Lukas. I don’t see them nearly enough, especially since Michaele and Heath live in Iowa. It was a nice reunion.

As we were chatting, my aunt told me that she had reestablished contact with a “long-lost” cousin of mine, Chad, who now lives in Vancouver. I don’t think I’ve seen Chad or his sister in 25 years, for reasons I’m not going to blog about (family stuff, you understand). Given that I’m only 33, though, that is a long time ago.

So I decided to give Chad a call. I was a bit nervous, but then came the anti-climax: leaving a message. *sigh* I’m hoping we’ll get a chance to reconnect soon. It would be fun.
