I can barely hear myself think…

… but that’s okay, because having a houseful of kids means I’m content, if slightly headache-y.

This is a busy work week for me, and the kids are off school. The deal is basically that as long as everyone stays out of my office, everyone is welcome to have friends over. This meant I was able to work most of today with only the dogs bugging me. By the time I was ready to get off the computer, it was time to figure out dinner (anyone else feel like they shouldn’t be obligated to feed anyone this week except on Thursday? … just me?) and dish up some semblance of a balanced meal to a table full of bottomless teens. (God bless Costco and the trillion-pound bag of frozen tortellini.)

The secret to surviving the noise is not such a secret—I love it when we’re the hang-out house. This week, especially. Come on over to Alpha Mom to find out why.

    I too was shocked and surprised to find out my children expect me to feed them this week! ;)

    I did not feed them this week, unless you count pizza, subs, and the like.
