It has been quite the week - and a pleasant surprise, too. DD's recovery has been so much more uninvolved than we thought it would be. She still gets pain - very expected - especially after a day of use that jaw just can't take it anymore.
In 9 days the in-laws start descending upon our place for our big reunion. These are DH's sibs, spouses, kids, kid's spouses, grandchildren, grandchildren's spouse (the first sibs's grandson got married this weekend). Whoa. All total? 23 confirmed with 3 more possibilities. Now before you think we are nuts for hosting this - while a quirky, weird kind of family, they are a great family. They are a pitch in and get things done family, not a sit around and stare at each other family.
The oldest in the group is 62 (DH's brother), the youngest is 7. We are hoping this brother's daughter is able to come as it will be the first time EVER all the sibs children will have been together - age range: 42 - 12.
So we are looking forward to it and have a lot to do to get ready. First task: clean the upstairs guest room of toys and animals.
