My Ma is Coming!
Monday, November 05, 2012
My Mom will be here tomorrow and I’m having mixed feelings. I’m stressed because I have about 1000 things to do before she gets here (organizing, laundry, cleaning, voting, getting an oil change) so that’s adding to the madness. I guess I’ll deal with those tonight and tomorrow.
She called me on Saturday all worried and upset and not knowing if she should come because she’s feeling sick. I told her that it wasn’t a big deal either way (because train tickets are easy to switch) and that she could wait another day to see how she feels. She totally changed her tune last night and now wants to come so I don’t know what to think. Talk about a total mood swing. It makes me apprehensive for her to come.
I’m also worried about having to entertain and all that. I have a few days off and really want to relax but sleeping on an air mattress is not what I have in mind. I won’t get to go see friends as much either but hopefully that won’t be an issue. We’ll just see how it goes. It’s kinda touch and go and one comment can really break a trip. I’m hoping for the best. I will be working a couple of days so I hope she can relax and hang out without reorganizing all my stuff and driving me crazy.
So we do have some fun stuff planned. I picked up a basket this past Saturday so we’ll have plenty of fruits and veggies.
We’ve talked about making a turkey and having a mini-thanksgiving dinner while she’s here. That could be fun. I’ve also thought about taking her to a nice restaurant in town. There’s also the Fall art walk and Christmas craft fair so there’s plenty to do and I’m sure we’ll shop till we drop. I need to get some stuff for Christmas. Anyway, It will be nice to have a couple of days off work too. Fingers crossed!
