My family has decided to come stay at my house for Thanksgiving. Literally yesterday!!!!!!! I really did not want to clean my house more! I really want to be able to wake up at 3:45am if that is what I need to do. I told them no and they are asking again. So of course I have to say yes....DH will not let me say otherwise. Sigh! A packed house for about 4-5 days. I wish I could go stay in a hotel! They are making the excuse that they want to "help" get the house ready for the baby. Well in a lot of ways that is true because I have to clean just to have them over.
Sorry for the whining session. I am so tired and cranky Poor me!
Wow. I'd be mad as heck! Theirs be no way I'd be hosting thanksgiving even if they offer to help before baby gets here.
Well, if it's something you have to deal with, be sure to leave them lots to do!

How many people are you talking about when you say family? I personally would have said no freaking way and if my DH insisted then I would have told him that he is responsible for every bit of the housework that I felt would have to be done before they arrived and for any messes they left while they were there. Do you think they will actually pitch in and help you get things ready?
I am not hosting Thanksgiving....thank God! They will come Wed night and Leave Saturday. We will be going to a different house for dinner. It will be two people, plus my mom, three kids and me and DH. If I lived in a large amount of sq footage that would be fine but we are in about 1900 sq feet. NOT big enough IMO!
Oh yeah, that is an issue.
We have an extra bed at our house in the babies' room and I've been making my friends stay in it together when they come over because I need to be able to move around the living room and kitchen in the middle of the night without having someone asleep on the couch.
Hmm ... I have no potential solutions to suggest. I hope something works out for you.
