Parents Visit

My mom and dad are visiting us later this week. It's only for a very short visit but it stresses my wife out and I don't really know why. Her stress affects me too. My children will enjoy the visit though. We've other house guests this week too. Both my daughter and my son have friends staying with us overnight. It's half term and my wife and children will be at home while I work Monday to Wednesday. It's a bit of a bummer that I'm working but such is life. We need the money. I'm going to be working away for two nights, like I did last week, which is why I haven't posted many things on my blog for a while. I'll be glad to get back to more of a normal routine after this week. I'm already looking forward to my two days holiday after Wednesday.
The picture below describes pretty much how we feel about my parents staying with us.

Clean all the things! I get that impulse :) My ex was very stressy about family visits, where I tend to feel that family will always understand if things aren't perfect.

LB: That's right, there's absolutely no need for any kind of stress. I guess she feels like it's a bit of an inspection when it really couldn't be further from the truth.
