My fridge has a new look, thanks to some industrious grandchildren. They were here for two days. I imagine if they stayed for a week I could get them to paper the entire house.
It was a great visit – they got to spend a day at Galaxyland, go to the Wimpy Kid movie, color and paint, play some kind of queen/guard/chef/servant/royal dog game (I didn’t get a lot of the details straight since all of them were elaborating on them at the same time), turn the basement into a disaster zone while watching tv (they are great multi-taskers), do stuff on the computer, decorate the driveway with chalk, eat A LOT of pizza and freak out about the crazy rain and thunder storms.
Then just like the end of a wild storm they were suddenly all packed up and gone. My part-time loaner dog has happily left me too, picked up by the vacationers on their way home from the airport early this afternoon.
And here I am, alone again. The silence is deafening. I think I need a nap.
