My wife and kids are still in Los Angeles visiting her parents and I am looking forward to their return in a few days. With them out of the house, one would think some information might flow me to directly. However, I have just received a call from my wife, letting me know that my mother is coming next week and she will be taking all the grandkids to the aquarium in Atlanta. How did my wife find out? My sister, who lives only a few miles from here, called her in L.A. to let her know.
Sometimes I think that one of the reasons I got married was to finally be included in these family conversations.
