Day 24 - Getting My House Back

We live far from family. As a result, around the holidays, our home is a busy one. There was one year when we had guests staying in our home 36 out of 40 days between Thanksgiving until January 2nd. I love having family visit. I enjoy entertaining. But after the first of the year, when our home quiets down and the space becomes ours again? Heaven. No more planning elaborate menus. No more stepping over extra shoes at the front door. No more extra laundry. I can find a quiet room with no one in it. The kids can get to bed at their regular bedtime without too much fuss. I can play on the computer or watch TV without feeling guilty. Ahhh, the joy in getting my house back!
