And then there were FIVE!!!

OK for the past year our home has been a whirl wind of change.
It started out when we moved into our house, after both having 5 ½ apartments. Now we have a big house but I never thought we’d run out of room so fast!!
Add to that my niece (who I love to pieces) who lived with us for over a year every second weekend! Don’t get me wrong she’s the cutest little girly, girly girl I know! Yes! That means she changes her clothes at least 5 times a day!!!
Then came my brother… and his girlfriend (who is attached to him at the hip) so we cleaned out the basement (aka, play room) and set up an alcove for them! There goes my quite time!
Big house!!!! MY FOOT! All this movement has been draining me and I’m officially on the last ounce of patience! My kids are 10, 8 and 5, add a 4 year old, and two adults who act like spoiled teenagers, the cat, and the dog (ants, earwigs and spiders) and I’m off to that little room with the padded walls!!!!
So to get to the point, this past week the house feels like it’s TOO BIG! My brother finally got his own place and has taken his GF and his daughter (my Niece) with him. My little Bugger (6 year old son) is visiting his grandparents in NY (he’s been gone 5 weeks now). Little Miss is with her mom, and the 10 going on 17 is with his Dad! All that is left is The Man, The Cat, The Dog and I!
So you would think that I would be in Heaven!!! Float around in the pool, soak up the sun, and read a few good books, undisturbed by the word “Mommy”, the constant question “Can I have something to eat?” The bickering of children, “Mommmie, 10 going on 17 hit me!!!!” “Pulled my hair” “Won’t watch Star Wars with me”, stepping on Lego’s, dirty fingers… I think you get the point!!!
Hell NO!!! Instead I find myself, unable to relax, concentrate, and spreading out the Lego on the floor so that I can step on them!!!!
I’m really looking forward to having my family around me again and enjoying the sound of the bickering that come with them, even if we’re only going to be 5!
