Today is a holiday. No classes and offices. That does not necessarily translate to " no work" for me. The kids are all here and so are some of their cousins. My house has been in constant state of mayhem since 9:00 A.M. I was at the basement doing my usual internet thingy when I heard a racket in the vicinity of the dining room. Daughter #4 just came in from her overnight stay and she brought home one of her new friends to eat breakfast. By 10:30 A.M. the whole house was buzzing with activity. Daughter #1 came home from her 36-hour duty, my son was home for the long weekend and was miraculously already awake, daughters 2 and 3 were also eating late breakfast and so was Ethan. The phone kept ringing and it was irritating me at no ends so I went down to the basement, put on my earphones and did some work.

Four of my kids's cousins dropped by for lunch. It was a good thing there was food to eat as we had five uninvited guests for lunch! By 4:00 P.M. all eleven of them were busy eating (again) snacks of corned beef, hotdog and bread while everyone who had a laptop were all busy tapping and yapping. By 6:00 P.M. surely, I thought, they'd all go home. Wrong! As I type, they are eating dinner.

I sometimes envy those who can just pack their bags and go on a short vacation. I've never gone on a relaxing vacation for the last, ummmm... 30 years?! How I wish I could finally experience some fun and exciting Vegas vacations with some able-bodied friends.
