Re: One project accomplished

Tell me about it. My parents and sister flew home from Europe one January and stayed with us [first wife, me, three kids] for a snowy winter month until their car arrived by boat. It was nearly patricide, matricide, and sibicide before the damn car was off loaded in Baltimore.

I missed something, WHO is staying with you for a month? That's normal? I'd
freak out after three days.

It's not funny. this is her lifestyle. She's sitting around reading
until 3 or 4 in the morning, then sleeps til 2pm. I don't mind too much
as it gives me my morning to myself, but I hate tip-toeing around my own
house. She thinks visiting for a month is normal. My idea of a visit is
3 days max. I know I sound heartless, but I guess I'm a creature of
habit and everything is in disarray. I am forever doing dishes and
emptying trash while it takes her 3 days to move her suitcase to her

Well it sounds like one heck of a party is happening over at
sleeping in till 3pm.... ah, the good old days :)


It's easy to get so busy between computer work, Christmas baking, and
other "important" stuff, that the house doesn't get cleaned in winter
either. I really need to vacuum but my visiting sister doesn't awaken
until about 3 pm and somehow, housecleaning doesn't really occur to
in the evening.
