This week all my kids are home along with their spouses. That makes 11 of us. Plus a couple of extra people who are like part of our family.
It's times like this when I wish I had a couple of extra rooms decorated the way I'd like them, a nice big kitchen with lots of cupboard and counter space, and at least one more bathroom. Reality is that there are mattresses on the floor, a small kitchen area, and only one bathroom. Throw in scheduled showers and laundry because of a well problem and it spells potential disaster or at the very least, less than desirable accomadations.
Yet, it is what it is and we are a family despite it all.
And nothing beats a spot by the river for fishing, a new patio with lovely flowers and plants, a swimming pool, and love.
