Onion Distance

     It was a crazy weekend around here. Both of my married daughters and their families were here just to hang out and because of the Superbowl. We always have a great time when we are together, but with over 25 people in the house, including a lot of grandkids, it can get really hectic.
    Yesterday my daughter Katie and I were discussing the pro's and con's of several of the houses she and her husband have put offers on. I made the comment that three of the houses were great, but I thought one was just a little too far away.
    I said, "If you get the Clearfield house and it's Sunday and you're making dinner and realize you're out of onions and you need to borrow one, it's just a little too far. While Kristin and Karly live close enough that they could come and get an onion if they needed it."
   Out of no where my son popped up. "We have too many people in this family that live in onion distance."
   After thinking over what he had said we started to laugh. I always thought living within onion distance was a good thing, but apparently I may be alone in that. 
    As crazy, hectic and chaotic as it gets I'm happy that my kids live within onion distance. That was my master plan when we moved here and I hope it stays that way for a long time.
