We are enjoying a surprise visit, from Turf toter, Farmer Tim, and my nephew, Mountain Boy. We love having them visit us, and we are all having a good time. This is a small condo, with only 1 bathroom, 5 people, you do the math. We all make it work. But it does bring to mind, the times when all the out of town relatives would come and visit us when Turf toter and I were kids. Our parents both come from a large family, with lots and lots of Aunties, and Uncles, and tons of cousins. All those large families would come and stay for a extended vacation in our childhood home. In our house with one bathroom. And no one seemed to mind.
How did we do it? Sometimes there were three families staying at our house, over Christmas, and maybe a set of Grandparents. We all managed, but maybe I have a faulty memory. Or maybe the good memories have blocked out the waiting at the door, desperate to be let in. Please! I gotta gooooooooo. I am sure there was some juggling with the bathroom, the one tub, and all those people. But I don't remember any complaints. Just hoards of cousins, huge dinners, and lots of camaraderie.
