She Worries Me So…

Filed under: — Kate @ 12:38 pm EST

Seven days and counting until my un-mother-in-law (UMIL) arrives for her two week stay with us. I’m getting just a tad stressed out, since I want everything to exceed perfection when she comes. Edo says I shouldn’t worry about it, but that’s such a typical male reaction, don’t you think? Because no matter what anyone says, the condition of a home is always a reflection upon the woman. Think about it. (I’m talking about the organization, decoration, design, etc, not the structural aspects).

You see, over the course of our five year relationship, I’ve only met his mom once before. That was three years ago, when she came to stay with us in our old apartment. So I kind of want to impress her. Or at least not un-impress her. I mean, I just don’t want her to leave thinking “Edo’s wasting his time his time here with this ordinary American girl when he could be traveling the world and sleeping with models.”

Oh, and my parents have never met his parents. And I seem to be the only person who thinks it’s about time for that to happen. So I arranged for my parents to come down and have dinner at our place when she’s here. Hence… even more stress.

And then there’s the work-related stress, but that never goes away, so whatever.

Anyway, I guess the point of this post is that I might be a little less bloggy for the next few weeks, though I’ll try to keep up the best I can.
