Houseguests! 2008 May 20

The houseguests have arrived! We’ll have my brother-in-law, his wife and their four (or is it five) year old son with us. Things will be different.

I have always loved living in housefuls of family or de facto family. It feels like the most natural state of affairs. I wonder if that’s what a tribe feels like in some remote village. The closeness of family ends up a comfort.

Then again, this is the honeymoon phase. We’ll see how it shakes out. As with all human relationships, there will be ups and downs. With good communication and good boundaries any conflict or trouble can be worked through.

I take it they’re going to be staying for…. awhile?

Measured in months, yes.
