Breathe into the paper bag!
Saturday! Saturday! Saturday! Saturday! Saturday!
It’s actually going fine, and we’re getting stuff done, and people are arriving. TH’s friend O arrived from Germany last night, and he is a great, low-impact, houseguest who is also a semi-gourmet cook, so, score! It’s a shame his wife & daughter couldn’t come, but he brought pictures.
My parents arrive tomorrow, and my sister & brother-in-law on Friday. I think the in-laws are all coming Friday as well, but I’m not sure.
In the meantime, I’m trying hard to experience and enjoy these days-before, instead of just getting through them. It’s a bad habit of mine to just sort of wait through days preceding major events, like Christmas, or big parties, and it ultimately just causes me to lose a week or so of time I could have enjoyed, but didn’t. I’m going to try hard not to do that this week.
