In a word: yes! Sometimes I will get these random glimpses into other people's lives and that is when it kind of hits me how...odd...we are Odd is not bad, but not always good either. The sheer amount of laundry and dishes and running around is a LOT sometimes too much. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have just one (or none!). Ultimately, I love having a big family and I would not change it for the world but it is extremely overwhelming. I feel alienated a lot as well. Not many people really "get it" or "get me". It is definitely a difficult life...
