Awaiting Chaos

Starting whole family will be arriving.

 I thought that it would never get here as I have been imagining, dreaming, and smiling about it for weeks now.

The house is semi-ready....blow-up beds are blown up, hide-a-beds are no longer hidden, the crib and pack n' play have been opened and mattresses have been carefully placed on them, after several (!!) trips, the groceries were bought and the refrigerator and pantry are as full as they can get (you know that kind of full where you take out one item and ten more come with it!), the pool has been chemicalized and cleaned, presents and happy gifts have been purchased, the balloons have been blown, the Pirate and Princess party things are ready to go......etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

I have had more lists than ever...and, one by one, items are being crossed off.  Sticky note reminders are slowly being removed and I am almost at the point that if I don't have it done.....well, I guess that it won't get done.

I just want to have everyone here already..... so the hugging, laughter, and love can begin!

*sigh*  : )
