Man, this week has been a busy one. Last weekend, my family came to visit us from out-of-state. Usually, my parents come alone. However, this time, my sister and her family came with as well. They have two awesome kids. So, we had 3 families and 4 kids under the age of 5 in our house for most of the weekend. Luckily, my sister’s family decided to stay in a hotel, so at least we all weren’t sleeping here. They were certainly welcome, but it probably would have been a little bit cramped.

The visit was a lot of fun, but it was also pretty exhausting. My sister and her husband left for home on Monday morning. I got up super early to bring them out to the airport. We had a great time with everybody and I was sad to see them go. However, it was really nice to have our house back to ourselves Monday night.

Of course, now that we are back on the market shopping for a house, I’ve got a lot of work to do to get our house ready to sell. Ugh. Along with doing a little painting, the next time I have a day off, I need to trim up our trees and bushes. I also need to do some trimming over at one of our rentals. Ah, the beauty of home ownership.

So…since I’m sure you don’t care one lick about my personal life, let’s get on with the post…
