I don't expect this to last very long, so I'll be quick.
It's been, well, words fail me when it comes to describing the past week. I've never had this many people in and out of my house on such a continual basis. I like being alone, or just "alone" with my family. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy company, but I truly do like spending time with just my family. This is different. Nurses, therapists, people bringing supplies, family members bringing things in, or installing new stuff to help grandma - it feels a little like organizing fleas on a dog. It really wouldn't be that bad if the people with the home health care co. would call to schedual things in advance - meaning MORE than 15min. before they want to be here. Then there's the one that showed up this morning at 9:00, with NO warning. I know this will all get sorted out, and settle down into a comfortable routine, but it really does make you that much more appreciative of quiet moments. Even the children seem to feel it - they are all being unusually quiet right now - even though they are all awake, and no-one is sick. Actually, it's kind of amazing. I think I'll go enjoy it some more.
