Well... Michael and I made the trip back yesterday - and within minutes, Daughter #1 and her boyfriend were there...and Daughter #2 and her family were there and it was a very loud and boisterous homecoming! As I was debating what to feed the seven people under my roof, a call when out for pizza, a collection was rounded up, and I was off the hook.
Short notice but today, I had Hailey (18 months) over to babysit all day... so not a lot of time settling in, and my good bye to Michael as he headed back home was distracted somewhat. Kind of a sad day (always is when we have to be apart again), except I've been doing too much toddler-chasing to really deal with it.
Dinner tonight is a frozen lasagna - yay for no effort meals!
Here's my plan for this next week - my focus is on some serious cleaning and decluttering. And for dinner:
