Cousins and Chaos

Cleaning makes me cranky.

I spent the better part of the weekend dusting, polishing, mopping, picking up, putting away and doing laundry. I even managed to vacuum and clean out a few closets. ( I should really do that more often.) I don’t normally clean like this, truly, I don’t. Just ask anyone who lives here. It’s just, that, well this week we are having lots of cousins over, and extended cousins, and their children and their parents and some friends and it is absolutely the most out of control wonderful chaos that was ever known to man. And I wouldn’t trade it for anything. In fact, that is what we call this family gathering – Cousins and Chaos.

I can’t imagine Thanksgiving without my cousins and the chaos.

The Senator can’t imagine life without ‘Cousins and Chaos’. He likes a clean house and he likes to watch me clean it, the stinker! Did I mention that cleaning makes me cranky?
