My husband’s parents are arriving to stay with us as houseguests starting Friday. They plan to go home right after Christmas.
You read that right. After. Christmas. Although they will be spending November with some other relations in Kentucky.
Did I mention we have a three bedroom, one bath house, and two kids?
I actually really like my in-laws, so that’s good. But just from a strictly logistical standpoint, it’s going to be frankly a little awkward at home for a bit. Especially the morning routine.
Being a homebody by nature, when my domestic routine gets altered, I tend to get a little twitchy.
I’ve also been more or less politely asked by hubby to not discuss politics or the election. To be fair, the last time I got into a political discussion with a houseguest (fortunately not a relative) I ended up requesting that they take their belongings and vacate, in a considerably louder tone of voice than I generally use to ask someone to pass the butter and using language that my mom would consider, at best, not befitting a lady.
Have I mentioned that I’m feeling a little stressed?
So, in other, not-necessarily-relate household news, I’m stocking up on my favorite local wine. And premium bourbon. And dark chocolate. And chai. And aromatherapy candles.
And in hindsight, the upcoming series on “Self Care for Sensitive People” is looking more and more like a FABULOUS idea.
