We are in the process of getting my parents moved in next door and we really only have the rest of this week to get them functioning up there. You might ask why do we suddenly have only a week left to make this happen? Because we’ve had to wait two months in just getting the double-wide home delivered and set up. In fact, we are still waiting on the carpet guy to tack down the carpet! Then, we’ve had to pack everything and carry or drive their stuff 100 feet from where they were to where they are now. It has been a royal pain in the ass (unfortunately, not the good kind).
But why does it need to be mostly done by next week? Because we have relatives coming! My aunt from Ireland is stopping in for a couple of months and my brother and his family of six (wife and four kids) are visiting for few days. They are all staying up at my parents new home. Around the same time, my stepdaughter is coming down for a couple of weeks to visit us. So…that makes 15 people on my little 2.9 acre estate…for more than one night! There’s just so much to do before everyone arrives and that’s why I’m feeling so on edge.
Plus, with all these relatives wandering around, any time for percussive play will probably be non-existent. That means, we need to try to fit some “us” time into this hectic schedule before everyone arrives. Think it will happen? I sure hope so. In lieu of everyone arriving, I actually placed another order from Cane-iac and I’m hoping it’ll be here before the weekend. Fingers crossed, it’ll show up in time for us to play.
Also, I still have to try to at least make my house presentable…it’s still mostly full of my parent’s stuff or stuff that needs to be sold or donated. We’ve been waiting to do the rest of the unpacking and cleaning at my house because we were planning on moving everything around to the proper houses and putting things away, but with it being so last minute, I don’t think much is going to get done down here. (sigh) No point in getting too stressed out about what I can’t control, but when has that ever stopped me?
