Well, how about a long month?...

Because that's what it's turning out to be. After all the sickness the first part of the month, I am still on red alert. My kids birthdays are 2 days apart at the end of the month... and now...

My brother, whom I haven't seen in 6 or so years, called me yesterday. He says "what are you having for dinner tomorrow?" hinted around that I should make spaghetti and then announced he and his family will be here for dinner.

Don't get me wrong... I am bouncing off the walls excited. But my house was a wreck... Did I mention I had sick kids? And then there is the whole, where is everyone going to sleep? I have a tiny house and he has 6, yes count 'em 6, kids. He is leaving the oldest home for school reasons. And one of the kids is the brand new baby they had in Dec. The thing that sort of worries me is, he said on the phone he wasn't going to call at all... they were all just going to show up! I would have rang his neck for sure.

Well the house is clean now. Not that it was horrid before, just kind of lived in, and not ready for an extra 6.5 people. All is good. Now I am just waiting. They are still 4 hours away... urg!

Wake me when March roars in.


  1. Don't ya just love family!? :)
    So from now on I am totally going to say my house is "lived in" instead of "messy". I love it! :)

  2. Oh those unexpected guests...we love them but tend to appreciate our kids so much more after they leave. Not sure the ages of your brother's kids but my sister has 4 and when they come, combined with my 4 they love to run, scream, fall down stairs and touch every room in the house. When they leave I'm exhausted!!! Good luck hon.
