Ready for the Weekend
Watching the sunrise, waiting for a Toddler Girl to wake so I can scoop her up, maybe give her parents a rare extra hour of sleep. Her Cousin from Rome arrives today with Seven-Year-Old Cousin in tow along with another set of parents. A last weekend together here on the island, and the weather forecast promises sunny goodness for the whole stretch.
The only wrinkle in our plans is a big one--an urgent and legitimate request by a realtor to show the house tomorrow (believe me, we considered all the options, including a very solid "No. Wait until Tuesday!). We've been keeping it clean and organised, but seven extra people, two of them toddlers (oh, the travel accoutrements of a wee one!) put some serious demands on housekeeping services.
So I'm going to be distracted, and blogging will take a back seat for at least a few days. Not wasting any moments that could be spent cuddling --you get it, right?
Time to go back inside now and see if Toddler Girl is awake.
