Earlier today we got a call from Chris’ brother saying that he’s going to fly from his home in Chicago to Toronto April 10th to visit with us over Easter Weekend.
Now this is a guy who’s so afraid of flying that at least 99% of the time that he’s made visits to the area in the oh … 20 years that I’ve known him he’s driven the 10 to 12 hours from Chicago to Toronto rather than take an hour or two plane ride.
I guess it’s cheaper to drive if he’s bringing his family with him – well depending upon gas prices … but still .. you’d think he would have flown a few more times over the years if it weren’t for his terrible fear of flying!
So I guess we’ll have a house guest at least that Thursday night or perhaps for the whole weekend. I don’t know if he’s going to rent a car so that he can drive out of town to visit his parents and other family members or not … God … If he stays the whole weekend I might end up with a house full of in-laws! OMG! That would be terrible! Hmmm maybe it’s time to take a serious look at that Wilmington NC real estate I’m always hearing about and get FAR far away from the in-laws!
Right after Easter weekend- on Easter Monday in fact we’re having our oil tank replaced. I don’t even know if we’ll have a spare bedroom that weekend because we might need to move some stuff from the basement to the spare rooms so that the workers will be able to move around in the basement and get that tank replaced.
It’s not like I don’t like my brother in law or anything (well as long as I don’t disagree with him when he’s drunk he’s fine), I just don’t like a bunch of people descending on my house for days at a time without really even asking if it’s ok.
How do you feel about drop in guests or weekend guests?
