The title pretty much sums it up. For 9 glorious days (and even more fun nights) we have traded our relatively quiet life with two (okay, not really easy-going girls) for the busy life of my wonderfully organized and put together sister-in law (including her 4 kids.) Between all of the art projects the kids want to do, soccer, dance, piano, and just keeping the house somewhat clean, meals made and kids healthy and happy, I am running–hard. It doesn’t help that Megan is constantly saying “I want to go home. I want to go sleep in my brown bed.”

Okay, I am tired of my own whining. It is actually going as well as I could ask for. My sister-in-law, Kristine has made it as easy as possible (and then some really.) And her kids are wonderful! (The only downside to kids that help out a ton is the oft sung chorus of That’s not how my Mom does it.) Anyway, this is my long-winded way of saying that I am tired..but I will get back on it soon. Something to look forward to: More spooky Halloween decorations that you can make with your kids…no later than Thursday. In the meantime, let’s hope I keep it together.
