I think it's fun when family comes. We had Josh's cousin stay with us for most of this week and my parents came down for my brother's graduation. I love this time of year — lots of visitors. We have a nice time, and get a change of pace. Plus, I like being with my family on occasion.
The only real issue, though, is the massive amounts of junk food that we consume. Family gatherings tend to involve lots and lots of candy that we eat while talking. And with guests in the house, I don't exercise. SO that's not good. But it's still mostly worth. I'll just have to work harder on days when we don't have visitors.
