    Unfortunately, he was working all day and then went to meet his brother to pick them up.

    Besides, one of my gifts is hospitality. Our house may be small, but I always, make sure my in laws are comfortable. Now they have suite to themselves downstairs. The bedroom is all set up for them. The bathroom is spotless with clean fluffy towels toiletries etc. (My Mom used to clean houses for wealthy families in the Hamptons. Thanks Mom.) The kitchen has breakfast and lunch supplies plus coffee is all set up to brew.

    I am exhausted, but I feel good. I understand why my husband did what he did. My FIL loves our home. It is peaceful and our sons are awesome well mannered kids. The BILs home in Boston is very chaotic. Bill wanted to make sure his father got to spend time here before leaving. One of my FILs two surviving brothers lives near us as well.

    My real issue, which you will understand, is the volume of correcting I have to get done this weekend.

    At least you had SOME notice... my own father, with whom my relationship is not the best, almost always shows up out of the blue and completely unannounced.
    Once when I was in the middle of taking an online college class test... not the easy kind either. One requiring full paragraph answers and on a timer, the "make you sweat" kind.

    Yeah.
    I had to apologize, leave my husband with him, go in my room close the door and just finish it.
    Later he acted as if I had insulted him, then let me know that he was basically using my house as a free hotel on his way somewhere else.
    But still... I always played gracious host.
    These days he might not be comfortable with the level of sharing furniture with my dog-chirren. That's sad. Not.

    In the 22 years we were together my in-laws never visited our home. My parents on the other hand surprised us once.

    Thank goodness I was cleaning when I looked out the window and saw a car that looked like my parents. I went outside and looked as it drove down the street. It had OR plates, like my parents' car would. A few minutes later they pulled up.

    I had my first gallbladder attack the night they left. My ex left the same day on work travel. I was exhausted. So, once the kids were asleep I hit the Ruffles and wine. Once the pain started I thought the kids(2, 2, 6 at the time) would wake up to find their mother dead on the living room floor.

    In Laws Well, my husband finally got home with them at 10:15pm. Rain and traffic. At 9 Kevin grabbed my hand and said lets go to sleep, so we fell asleep in my bed waiting. We got up to chat with them. They love the little apartment.

    Good News, they will put Kevin on the bus for me today. I do not have to sneak in. That is awesome because my classes are having food parties so I need to be there early.

    More good news. They may be with us through Billy's graduation, with one break for a week to go to SILs home in PA.

    Body Stuff Last night, I finished my second week of Body Weight Progressions. I am definitely getting stronger. My chin up negatives were not total free falls. I have also been getting into deep squats and staying there for a few seconds. My knees are feeling better than ever.

    I think most of us could use a tour through body weight...to get our mobility back so that if we want to add in weights, we have our form down pat before moving on.

    Sigh on the inlaws.
