The hardest part of having someone visit is knowing that they're eventually going to have to leave
I recently had family visit from California for about a week. This was well overdue because we don't really get a chance to see each other too often. It was a good excuse for my extended family get together which is something that, nowadays, doesn't happen as much as it should. I had the week off of work so I was able to show them around downtown and just chilled with the family as much as possible. I think they had a good time and I appreciate that they were able to travel to Chicago.
Now it's back to real life...
