Jay and I (well maybe not so much Jay) love watching old reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond. I didn't use to get the humor, but since we've been married its becoming funnier and funnier.
My in-laws enjoy it too. Thankfully they are nothing like Marie and Frank. They live in Ohio, 8 hours away. Since the wedding last November, we've only made it up there to visit them once. This coming week will be their first trip down to visit.
Jay and I will be spending all day tomorrow getting the house ready for them. Not because we're dirty people, or because their particular people.
The two of us live in a 2,000 square foot home. three bedrooms, two baths, and a bonus room. I love my house, but its too much house for two people. So in the normal course of life I pretend the bonus room, two guest bedrooms, and guest bath don't exist.
Its not a huge chore to walk to the master bath when I need to...um...go, so why should I be bothered cleaning two toilets every week?
Needless to say, while my house stays spic and span for the most part - it still has a lot of work to go.
We hope to get a brief hike in on Monday, but since we're taking both sets of parents it won't be as strenuous as some of our typical hikes. I'm hoping that it'll still have some good views.
So that's my weekend in a nut shell. What about you? Do you have big plans in store for the holiday?
