Can I come stay at your house for Christmas?
So my inlaws were at our house for a week over Thanksgiving, while I was having a very stressful fifteen-hour-workday kind of time. I was just telling my husband this morning how much I'm looking forward to having four lovely days of quiet time at home (the weekend and Monday/Tuesday of Christmas, when I'm actually off work). Then we got an email from the inlaws brightly informing us that they plan to come stay with us from the 21st through the 27th.
And yes, I know that we need to put on our big-people pants and deal with them directly, but I'd much rather take the passive way out, so if anyone is traveling for the holidays and wants me to come house-sit for them, just let me know! I'm an excellent pet-feeder!
Anyone else feeling some holiday family dread?
