    onslaught of the in-laws v2

    John's sister is coming to visit this weekend......with three or four of her friends.

    John's coming home tonight from his business trip. He hasn't been home in ten days, and is leaving for another 12 on Sunday.

    Pretty sure it'll be fine......not like we have to entertain them. Still makes me tense. Six people / one shower.

    One word: Baby wipes.
    Cats just don't feel safe on a moving bicycle, no matter how much duct tape you use.

    They're all women. So, they don't want to drop the lavendar-mango infused oatmeal body scrub.

    On a semi-related sidenote, I love having women-friends visit. The bathroom always smells extra pretty as women seem to all travel with their own personal pretty smelling girl smells.

    When men-friends visit, the bathroom just smells like farts.

    It'll be fine. I'm just mentally preparing. Please don't give John any ideas about five women in the shower at once, he'll start drawing charts and diagrams on how to make it happen.

    That's pretty much my household when the daughters and their girlfriends are here for the summer months. Girls all over the place.

    So the daughters grew up and moved on, and then you got a female dog, right?

    Don't know why they want to come this weekend- the streets are a mess. John is exhausted and barely coherent after 10 days x 12hrs each. But they just need a place to crash.

    Yep- we just got the house back

    Now it will be clean again, we'll be able to tell how much food is in the fridge tomorrow by looking the night before, and the nights will be much quieter.....
    We'll be back soon, there will be more of us, and next time we won't be dropping leaflets.

    And then had her spayed IMMEDIATELY.....just cause I could!

    Naw, I would never have another male dog, b!tches are more loyal and devoted in my opinion. I've had both.......as a male myself, I know a bit about male psychosis....uh...I mean psychology!
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right......

    So I come home to find John sick in bed. He suspects it was a bad banana. Threw up a few hours ago, now I get to deal with company on my own if he doesn't get better.

    Meh, for crashers, no need to go crazy cleaning everything. Total of three guests, one of whom leaves tomorrow. John will need the most catering- already got him tea, water, saltines, his phone, his glasses, washed a garbage can, and turned up the heat.

    Literally, a bad banana. He threw out an entire bunch. He thinks it could be the eggs, b/c they are more than five minutes old, and he had a hard boiled egg as well.

    I think it's because he's finally got a break from working the long days, and his immune system is also taking it easy.

    Okay, so I cleaned the house, and set up three air mattresses with sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, etc. Think we can handle it.

    Forgot the bagels, though.

    That's strange. A banana is one of the things recommended for someone in his condition. BRAT diet - Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast.
