Most left by 5 on Saturday but cousins stayed until the wee hours of the morning playing cards and board games and mixed in much laughter. They returned on Sunday for more fun and food. We cooked and cleaned from the time my daughter arrived early Friday morning. I thought I'd be able to get some things done today with the shower behind me but silly me. I love when they visit but the household swells from 2 to 8 plus two large dogs which upset the cat. The last guests left at 6:30 last night. I feel like we are the Bumpus's at these times. I am out of practice....life in the Thompson house used to be like this every day; now it is much more sedate. It is no wonder we were all so much thinner when we were younger.....the running around never stopped back then.
It is so good to have them all together no matter how exhausting. Laundry will wait. That said, I am pooped beyond belief.
Here is where I was at my last post. It is doubtful I will make the self imposed April deadline but it's all good. Any forward progress is good. I am looking forward to putting my feet up this evening to get in my much needed stitching therapy. Problem is I am sure I will be sleeping in the recliner not much longer after I settle into a comfy position.
