All Because People Fell in Love
I'd intended to do a wonderful post about all the off-the-charts sweet things happening around here. And they are. But I.T. I.S. I.N.S.A.N.E. around here, we're all getting not enough sleep, beds don't get made, laundry all over the place, the basement looks like Toys 'R Us blew up, and we've lost kids and dogs now and then throughout the week too. A well-oiled machine we're not!

But it's been more fun than I can even tell you, we've had completely precious moments. And hysterical ones. And laugh til we cry moments. We've cleaned the fridge out, twice. The trash smells like diapers - that'll surprise the trash guy! Both bins are full, and we generally win the prize for least trash every week. So we're maxed out here, and by the time I get home from Mexico I'll forget the details. So trust me, it's been fun and crazy and exhausting and frustrating and hysterical - you know, just like any holiday you spend with your family, when six adults and four babies share the house or try to go anywhere and it takes two cars to haul all the kid paraphenalia and I have no clue if that's spelled right but finding a dictionary around here right now is hopeless. Right now we have our plane reservations, passports, luggage tags for the tour agency and money sitting in a very safe place, and as a last hurrah and because we're completely insane we're taking all the kids to the Pittsburgh Zoo for the day. They're having a baby shower for the new baby elephant and there's nothing quite as sweet as taking little kids to see baby animals. And yes, we're taking two cars.

Soon as we get back, we're dropping them all at the curb, and peeling out to head to a hotel by the airport. After dinner out and a bit of sleep, we fly out at the crack of dawn, and will be in Mexico by 9:30 am tomorrow. I figure we'll be on the beach before noon.

We pulled out the travel brochures, passports, luggage tags, etc. and our two daughters, standing in the kitchen, told us they were both completely consumed with envy. Can I just tell you how fun that is - to be in your 50's, with wrinkles and saggy rears, and have anyone be jealous of our life?! Pretty fun - be back in a week or so to tell you all about fun in the sun.
