Our granddaughter arrived in mid-June, followed quickly by her mother and siblings, and they were here until the last day in July. The day they left my son and his family came to stay while their house was rented for August, and they left the day after Labor Day.
Believe me when I say I'm not complaining! We loved having all of them here with us - if we didn't thrive on chaos we would never have had four children! So we don't mind it at all and in fact the energy and life that all these wonderful people bring to our house is wonderful. I love it. But now its time to clean up the house like it hasn't been done in a few months! I need to get to the baseboards, hit the backs of the toilets, and make sure the fridge is wiped down and organized. All summer we were busy and having fun and deep cleaning was not on the menu! So now's the time. And today is the day. My first Saturday to scrub and detail, and hopefully most of it will get done.
I think I'll be in bed early tonight....
