MIA--Family in town, Girls Camp and chaos

I have been and will continue to be missing from this blog for the next few weeks.

Currently, I have my sister and three of her five boys staying in my basement. Dentist husband removed her 3rd son's wisdom teeth this past Friday. Tonight, her eldest son comes up from Provo to stay the night here and stay until Tuesday morning. The day he had his wisdom teeth removed, our street was closed for repaving, so we had to walk a very sedated nephew, through my neighbor's backyard, into our backyard to get him into my house. We made quite the sight.
Tomorrow, my parents arrive in preparations for them to watch my kids when I go out of town to trek in the mountains for 3 1/2 days for Girls Camp. They are here for a few days before and after my visit. I have to spend all day Tuesday giving them the lo-down on how to take care of my kids while I am gone.

Wednesday morning, my niece arrives to pick up her stuff from house that I have stored for six months while she was on a study abroad. She is spending the night on Wednesday. So, while I am gone, there will be at least three visitors staying in my house. If my sister decides to stay through Wednesday (which is likely) I will have seven visitors, while I am gone and Dentist husband is at work.

Currently, all of the bedrooms are being used, plus my front room has all of the Girls Camp stuff I am in charge of, plus the beginnings of the stuff I need to bring to Girls camp. I just got an e-mail saying the weather will dip below freezing at least one of the nights we are up there and the highs will only be in the 50s. Holy cold temps Bat Man!

Oh and on a lighter note, guess who went grocery shopping and left the keys in the car, with the car running the whole time she was inside the store. The windows were rolled down, my GPS was in full site. Yep, you guessed it, me. Thankfully, the car wasn't stolen. Oh and I forgot to drop off a meal to someone who had a baby last week. It looks like she will be getting a restaurant gift card and a long apology from me when I get back from Girls Camp. When the chaos stops, I will blog all about this with pictures and highlights. I love being busy but I have to admit, right now, it is a little overwhelming. See all of you in a few weeks.
