I trust that everyone had a great Easter Holiday weekend. We attended church services and came home to a quiet dinner. We ended up with unexpected houseguests…..*insert sigh here* so I had to turn into hostess with the mostest at the last minute and whip up a big breakfast to feed the masses when they woke up. Turkey Bacon, Turkey Sausage, Omelettes and Biscuits saved the day. It also never hurts to have ground Starbucks coffee in your pantry. No, not for the guests….for me. I needed a cup. LOL
Today let’s talk about houseguests shall we?
The way I grew up, you didn’t just invite yourself over to someone’s house at the last minute unless you were family. Hell, family needs to give you some notice too.
Well, we seem to have a situation where certain family members feel it’s okay to just show up at our home without sufficient notice. Of course, they are family so we always say yes and open our door and guest room or couch….but when is enough enough?
For real, I am feeling a bit perturbed because said family members always seem to call us on a Saturday around 3pm and say they will be in Philly and need to spend the night. We say okay. Then they arrive on my doorstep at around 2am. *blink, blink*
This has been repeated behavior and on Saturday night…..1969 had enough. As a married woman, some arguments need to be started with love and respect. Especially when it’s about family and it’s your husband’s family. AHEM.
However, 2am is not that time. I cussed Mr. 1969 clean the hell out.
Of course, I gave him the option of putting his family member in check and he failed to do so.
The next morning….said family member got their azz handed to them courtesy of me. Then I calmly made breakfast for everyone, served the food and left the house to go run. LOL I am SO Claire Huxtable sometimes.
Seriously folks….college is over. Showing up at someone’s home uninvited, empty handed, etc….is not what’s hot in the hood. Especially when they have kids and it’s the weekend. Is it me?
