Omg bees, alert the international media. Some time lord is effing with time to make it slow down!!! In other unrelated news, I’v survived the day. Barely.
thanks bee, I so needed this chuckle. I feel you on the passive aggressive quips. Especially re cleaning and cooking because I feel like they are so much extra work, they should really just appreciate the fact that the kitchen is respectably clean all the time. My latest pet peeve is the coffee machine. They want freshly brewed coffee all the time. And while they are fairly happy-ish to make it themselves, didn’t think anyone washes or clean that thing except me – the one person in the houshold who doesn’t drink coffee. Or if I’m lucky, they dump the coffee grounds in the sink and rinse one part of the coffee maker. Yuck.
Anyway, I appreciate your input re working from home. It’s such a battle. You might be right in just letting it go. I guess it irks me that they think my DH is doing this hectic super important job while he and I think of our careers as being of equal value. He is really super supportive and have been making a point of asking me about my work in front of them and reminding me of “deadlines” in their presence so that they understand it’s a “real” job, but i think it is pretty much a lost cause.
lol I’m actually hiding out right now, sitting on a park bench in the middle of our town, pretending to have gone out for stuff for dinner…

4.5 more days.. I really do not know I’ll make this. We leave for our trip tonight amd will be together non-stop for 4 more days. I want to scream or cry or do both. This pst week has definitely been the longest of my life.
At the moment they are letting me be, I’m working in my room, but it’s just knowing they are right outside my door, hearing them move around in my space, and “intruding” every few minutes with offers of tea or breakfast or snacks or or or… I know I am being so unfair to be this annoyed by it, but I’m definitely past being reasonable. 🙈 I don’t even know why I’m posting here since there isn’t anything anyone can do, just venting I guess! Hopefully it helps me kee my cool!

Bees, omg, I don’t even know if anyone is still reading this but this has taken on a bizarro feel. We booked a last minute airbnb (of course) and it’s a single room. Bees. A SINGLE ROOM. I am in hell.

Oh my gosh you poor thing. Soon it will be over. I know time feels so slow but you can make it through. Keep going. Keep telling yourself you can do this.

The first trip I took with my DH’s family was with his parents and his sister. They wanted to go to Nashville for about 5 days. I asked how much we owed for our room and they told us they had it covered. I took this as generosity until we arrived at the hotel and they had booked one large family suite for all of us! This meant two queen beds, a pullout sofa, kitchenette and one bathroom. Sooooo incredibly uncomfortable. I cannot imagine having my in-laws stay with me as long as you have. Stay strong!
