The past few days we have been busily getting ready for my family to descend upon us. My 3 girls, their husbands, and their children are all coming to see us for about a weeks at the end of June, the beginning of July. We will truly have a full house. I will be having people sleeping all over the place. In preparation for this we did a little redecorating in two of the bedrooms. We painted and put a new floor in one and put up some pretty light paneling in the other. Thank goodness we are finished. Now a little cleaning in the rest of the house is all that is left to do. We wanted to get the heavy cleaning and redoing done in enough time to rest some before we have a house full. I can't wait until everyone gets here.

And once they get there you will enjoy them and be very happy when they all leave again and you can have your quiet life back. Enjoy them while they're there. I'm sure you've got all the shopping done for the meals too, right?

@just4him how did you know I've been stocking up already. I still have some things to get but most of it is here already. My husband said the same thing last night - he'll be glad to see them all and happy to see them go.

@HazySue Because you're a perfectionist. Only a perfectionist would paint the walls and redecorate before company comes, even family. So of course you have your larders fully stocked and are counting down the hours until they arrive. You probably already have plans for what you're going to do when they leave as well.

@just4him you are so right. I am a perfectionist. I am going to have to learn to lax.

@KristenH on the 4th we will also be having friends and other family members over for a barbeque. It's going to be terrific.

Once everyone is there it will be time to stop worrying about floors and decoration and just enjoy having the family together. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time.

I have a similar gathering due on 21st August, though I will only have 5 extra people staying over. I'm expecting about 25/30 people for the actual day. Lot of work, as you have found, but it will be worth it.
