I woke up to the sound of my cell phone ringing early in the morning. I didn’t know who was calling and I was too tired to even read the name on the screen. When I picked it up, I realized it was my mother calling me but I wondered why she would call me six in the morning. She told me that she got in touch with her brothers and that they were coming with their children and grandchildren and that they want to have a reunion. I thought it was a great idea. I was just wondering where. By this time I was already drinking my morning coffee when suddenly my mother told me the reunion would be in my backyard. I was so shocked I spit my coffee right out.
Yeah my backyard was very spacious but I didn’t know what to do for the preparations. I had to look for tables, chairs, and maybe even a tent to set up just in case the weather gets a little bad. Thankfully they planned the reunion to be a few months from now so I still had some time to find table and chair rentals. So I did some research looking for the needed stuff for our reunion. Since we were going to have a barbeque, I asked my brother to help prepare the stuff for the food, like the grills, the charcoal, and asked my mother if she could prepare some marinated steaks and burgers.
I got hold of a table and chair rentals and booked ten tables and fifty chairs. The reunion was fast approaching, and I still felt like some more stuff was needed for the reunion. I went through it in my mind remembering that my brother was overseeing the barbeque equipment while my mother would prepare for the food to be cooked at the barbeque.
Then I remembered a tent would be useful just in case it rains or if the sun gets a little too hot. But I didn’t know where to rent a tent, so I tried searching but couldn’t come up with anything. I tried asking my mother but she too didn’t know where to get a tent. I was quite tired that day so I decided to rest a bit. After a little nap, I went out of the house for a while to go on a walk. Then, I walked by a new shop that had tent rentals, I guess this was a lucky day. I got two large tents and had them set up in my backyard early morning of the reunion.
My mom and brother were already here and we were making the preparations for the food. Then the rest of the family started arriving. My cousins who I haven’t seen since I was kid came and we were all very happy and were having a good time. I thought I wasn’t capable of preparing for this but I did. At the end of the day, we were all able to catch up with each other.
