Our houseguests moved in today
i imagine blogging on this topic will likely cease after today but I am compelled tonight, to write.

I believe that I was built for kibbutz living.
Sharing responsibilities and benefits, company, conversation, doing what you are good at and letting others do what they are good at, enjoying other people's way of doing things, learning from them- i pretty much love all of it.

I like the sound of Jos and the boys down the hall, homecooked meals, folded laundry and vaccumed hallways.

I know there's a downside...

On the other hand, maybe it's good to be on "good behavior" rather than devolve in to a reality where we don't treat one another all that well.
How would your family be different if there were other adults and children watching? What routines and habits need shaking up?

Hmmm. Good question. I like to think that if there was another family living with us, we would have a greater likelihood of SOMEONE answering the phone when it rings! More people to play the UN-game or Table Topics with. A guest dog to 'exercise' our cats.
