After Eight plus Two

Getting cuddled and "doctored" at the same time.

Last night, after all 8 + 2 of my daughter's and son-in-law's large family left, I decided to play a computer game.  Only, I fell asleep in the middle of it.  At 9 p.m., I went to bed and did not wake up until 10:30 or 11 a.m.  I slept over 12 hours last night.  Amazing!

If you feel shaky in the morning after a busy weekend of holding children and babies, as well as all the commotion you are not used to, don't be surprised.  Even with all the wonderful help my daughter and son-in-law gave in taking over the kitchen on Saturday, I had plenty of other input.

I am so proud of my grandson, who has autism.  He wanted to make pancakes, so he and his grandfather made breakfast on Saturday.  He is 14,  and it brings tears of pride thinking of them standing side by side,  Grandpa doing the bacon and Grandson doing the pancakes.  Grandson  is almost as tall as Grandpa and very thin like Grandpa was when he was young.  Their body build is so similar.  I never knew that would make me feel so sappy.

I am so happy, because I managed to balance just fine for the weekend.  I took a long nap, while they went on an outing, which I would have loved to have joined on Saturday.  They told me all about it, and I think that was almost as fun for them.  Also, I had listened to all my friends and readers, who told me to clean after they came.  I did some organizing, and I listened about the cleaning.  Since I have been keeping the house clean, it looked fine.  And now, I really need to clean.

Oh dear, I woke up with numb fingers this morning, so my typing is over.  I just wanted you to know how wonderful this weekend was, that I was able to enjoy and not feel overwhelmed.

Love, Deborah
