my in-laws flew to kona for the day. i invited some friends over instead of going out to the beach this morning. we spent the morning running around the house playing, coloring, stickering, eating healthy and unhealthy items, talking craftiness, nursing babies, and reassuring each other that we were all indeed good moms despite our occasional frustrations. :)
my in-laws are so generous with us and in opening their home to us so i knew they would be glad for me, but i had to chuckle to myself, after everyone left and i was sweeping the floor, vacuuming the carpet, wiping the counters and basically trying to leave the house better than we found it.... why did it feel like i was a teenager cleaning up after a kegger before my parents got home?
i guess that's just the nature of living in someone else's home- no matter how generous and understanding they are.
the apartment permits are on their last approval process though (we hope) and things will start to get moving around here soon. i am excited to see the whole process and come up with decorating ideas and excited for my in-laws to get to have their home to themselves again since we do take up so much space and make so much noise, but until then they continue to be generous and we all make it work out.
