Today, after being here for a whole week, Tim’s parents left. It was a busy and fun week, with three extra adults in our small home the entire time (because Amy is temporarily living with us), and four on the weekend (with Jordan visiting), leaving the house in a natural state of disarray. But right now, as the boys nap, I will ignore the kitchen that needs to be tidied, dirty laundry that needs to be thrown in the washer, clean laundry that needs to be folded, floors that need to be mopped, and bathroom that needs to be cleaned, and enjoy some iced coffee and maybe watch a tv show or two.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: we love having company and any of you are welcome any time! But as sad as it always is to see grandparents leave (and any company really), having our home to ourselves is quite nice.
