And Then There Were None

The last house guests are gone this morning. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. We laughed, we cried, we ate turkey. Because we certainly couldn't eat beef. I learned that some house-guests can no longer eat beef. AFTER I put a bunch of chili in the freezer. But if thats the worst that happened ... Oh, I also cooked an extra-extra-turkey and forgot about it until the next day. But at least that made the puppies extra-extra-thankful :)

I'm pretty sure everyone had a good time. We do live in a nice little town in the midwest almost-near a big city. In fact, everyone loved it SO much that they're all thinking about moving here! Not kidding. ALL of them. Some of them started meeting with a realtor this week. Others are on a 24-month time frame, since he has to finish a contract at work and get his step-daughter out of high-school. The rest are somewhere in between. Life just gets weirder and weirder.


I hope that is a good thing. Sometimes my wife misses living far from family, and then sometimes she really likes it. Right now she is the former but after many days in December in the same house with all of them, it will be back to the latter and then we can come home.

Its very mostly a good thing :) There are definitely THOSE moments, but moments is all they are.

My big fear with all the in-laws moving here is that I won't be able to watch my tongue/actions all the time. I'm still trying to live down the year I was on birth-control pills. A bad reaction to those made me a little "difficult", shall we say?
