End of a Dream Run

Our house is a whirlwind of activity. My in-laws are leaving coming monday and we are all helping them shop and pack. So many gifts to be bought to take back to all the near and dear ones back in Bangalore. Loads of chocolates(are the ones you get here really better than the ones u get in India??), almonds, pistacchios, toys for all the kids, makeup articles and a bunch of other target/walmart stuff. I wonder if those poor suitcases will be able to take all the load...
And amidst all this activity, i cant help but think that this is the end of a dream run. For me that is. I mean my mother-in-law did all the cooking for us. She cooked yummy wholesome lunches and sometimes over the top dinners. She even had some snacks waiting for hubby and me when we came back from work. Hubby wuld step into the house in the evening and go " Amma, i am hungry..whats there?" and out would come varieties of lip smacking snacks. And even while i was enjoying those i kept thinking..hmm hope he dosent get too used to this snack thingy..once MIL leaves he is going to want me to cook him all these elaborate deals....
Most of all though, my in laws took care the baby while we were at work...poor M, she will miss her grandparents so much. Even though she is only nine months old and hubby says she will probably forget them in 2 days, i have my doubts and i do think she will miss them.
Well, anyways so now instead of coming home and playing with M, i will come home from work, cook, load dishwasher, finish up all the other chores and by then its almost time to give M her bath, give her her dinner and put her to when will i get to play with her???
One thing i am going to miss is the weekly hair massage that MIL insisted on giving me ( she dint have to insist too much..i love hair massages..or any maasages for that matter)...she would warm up the parachute coconut oil, rub it into my scalp and proceed to gently massage it...ohhh..the best 15 minutes of the week...hmm..who is gonna do this for me? I tried suggesting hubby dear to take up the task but he only roared with laughter :(
I am now trying to convince my Mom to come back for another six months....
