We go and we go and stop...

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

Thanksgiving was a wonderful week.  I did very little work and my children were here, bringing my grandchildren with them.

We spent a lot of time together, and I got to know my little granddaughter and my grandson who live on the left coast.

And I was reminded why little children are given to those who are young of body.

I am both exhilarated, and exhausted.  They left this morning, and I spent the bulk of the day putting the place back together.  Finding sticky-places in unusual locations, peeling off stickers from everywhere, cleaning sheets, towels, emptying garbage and replenishing my empty refrigerator.

I am relishing the return of my clean, uncluttered apartment, and at the same time missing the chaotic noise of children underfoot.

It was grand, I highly recommend it.

It sounds grand indeed, Alan. A noisy, messy blessing!

Hi Alan

I enjoyed your amusing post, and you clearly had a wonderful holiday.

Our daughter and her husband were here with their 18-month0old and its pretty amazing how 1 little body can keep 4 adults hopping for hours.  I seem to have forgotten those days when my daughters were that age. But it was a blast, as you clearly enjoyed your family time.

I feel your pain.  I need a long nap right after the youngest Grandson leaves.

Hi Alan, my nephew and his wife along with their 10 month old baby were at my home over the weekend, I'm amazed how a tiny person can make such a big mess but it was fun.

Well, as long as you have fun then it is all worth the exhaustion.

Alan, I've heard that grandchildren are God's reward to parents who didn't murder their children when they were teenagers.

Somehow it always seems like a bit of a disappointment to me when all the excitement of the season is over.
