Actually, I got home last night before dark :)

Turns out I didn't have an appointment on this past Thursday at 1:30 pm - I have an appointment on this upcoming Tuesday at 3:30 pm. Which was good, in a way, because an accident on the interstate had traffic back up for miles - tried to go side roads, but they were backed up because other people had the same idea :) So I phoned the office to tell them I'd be late and to see if they would be able to fit me in and found out I wasn't expected at all :) At that point, I was closer to N. Augusta than Spartanburg and had gotten myself psyched up for the trip, so went ahead and saw my cousin. But now I have to drive back down again on Tuesday. Oh, well :)

Lovely lady, former nurse, in her 70's, I think, or very late 60's. Shares a house with her sister and her sister's disabled son, who's in his late 20's. [livejournal.com profile] ithildyn - I think it might be like your house back in Monterey - a three bedroom house upstairs and a one bedroom apartment downstairs, joined by a staircase.

We got lots of pictures identified and I got to hear lots of family history :) Much more twisty than Dad's family - Dad had a fairly straight family tree. Mom's winds around here and there with kids living with other relatives and moving back and forth. There were lots of the old pictures I found that we couldn't identify, so I may go up to visit another relative in NC, who is my grandmother's sister. And I got some names and birthdates so I can try looking people up. Lots of pictures of Mom as a child too :) Loved those! I hadn't realized those pictures were her! My cousin wants copies of a few - I had some pictures of her father that she didn't have and a few other relatives - her father was my grandmother's brother.

I write that awkwardly because my grandmother and grandfather weren't really my mom's birth parents. They were cousins to her parents. Her birth father died and her mother got tuberculosis and was in a sanitarium and the younger kids went to stay with relatives - and my grandmother wouldn't give Mom back. So she was the baby of 7 kids, but raised as an only child.

Oh, and I managed to crack and pop out part of a filling while I was there. So I'll need to call the dentist on Monday [sigh]. I already need to have a crown replaced because I have a cavity coming in on the side of the tooth and now this. Argh!
