As our kids have aged, it seems more and more like we’re running a bed and breakfast for errant teens. This weekend, we had my son’s friend visiting from Alabama, daughter’s boyfriend, who is actually our renter this school year (law school), daughter home for the weekend from college and son’s friend’s family visiting for an afternoon. Add to that the new kitten, daughter’s puppy, and our usual 2 dogs and cat…..and jeesh! its always mass confusion around here. Oh yes, and in the midst of it all, the carpet cleaner trying to do the house, a friend coming over to borrow some antique “bridal shower dishes”, 2 hours of photo taking at a pet event, yard work that’s been ignored all summer in 90+ temps, etc. Comings and goings….I’m sure when I’m old and retired and things are quiet and boring, I’ll yearn for these days…
