Keeping You In The Loop

  • It’s a busy week and I need to do things bullet style for a moment, hope you don’t mind. Get ready for an update…here we go!
  • The guestroom is basically ready, although I would have liked to have a small carpet in there. We are having our first over night guest on Thursday night but I hope there is enough room.
  • The guest I speak of is none other than MIL, Erik’s mother. The only woman in this world that I can seem to love as much as I at times dislike her (I can’t say hate, I could never hate her). We’ll just say she can drive me crazy but she drives everyone crazy and she knows it.
  • MIL always travels heavy, meaning she brings 20 bags and takes over our house. Our guestroom is small so I have no idea where we’ll put all her stuff.
  • Since neither of her sons can pick her up I will be picking her up, but that’s ok given that she hasn’t pissed me off in a long time :thumbsup:
  • The hardwood flooring is coming along nicely. I tried to help but as usual Erik wasn’t satisfied with how I did it (like painting) so I left it in his hands. I’ll try to post a picture soon because it looks so NICE or at least better than the crap linoleum floor.
  • Aurora apparently attacking a little bird the other day and scared it off. Erik said she jumped at it and feathers actually flew off as it flew away. I thought the feathers thing only happened in cartoons right after the cat ate the bird and you look in the cage and all that’s left is a few feathers floating in the air.
  • Our first party (the housewarming party) is this weekend, I suck at hosting parties so I have no idea what I was thinking.
  • Money is TIGHT and it figures just when the mortgage is due and we’re going to have a party :kickcan:

    You’re brave to host a party. I think few people really are comfortable hosting parties, and if they are, you know what? I don’t like them! NOBODY should be comfortable hosting a party!
    Onto the MIL. She sounds wonderful. I love that she knows she drives everybody crazy & carries shitloads of luggage. I bet she will be a lifesaver if she’s there during the party. She sounds like a ‘take the bull by the horns’ kinda gal.
    You are brave my dear, very brave. Hey and tranquilizers are GREAT for pre-party jitters. :martini:

    Jesse – you’re welcome!

    Jane – That’s a good way to look at her…she can be fun as hell one minute and have you fuming the next. She’s queen at crossing the line and saying things she shouldn’t. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to tell her to back off. She’ll either be a huge asset to the party or will be the downfall.
