NOOOOO. she just...SHOWED UP? From three hours away?

NOOOOOOO. I would die, and mine lives 10 minutes from here.

Oh...the pop in. I can't stand it. We have pretty much convinced our relatives that we don't appreciate the pop in.

I've got you beat, though. Over a decade ago my ex's entire family (meaning 8 people...I don't even know how they got there...2 vehicles? A van? A crowded sedan?) popped in at our apt from their home 3 states away...I think that was about a 6 or 8 hour trip. I remember asking why they didn't call, and they said they were just in the area. It seemed that somewhere between there and 6 hours later they would have realized what area they were headed to, but what do I know...

You don't sound like you live in a dump - You sound just like us...Dishes in the sink and on the counter until after our son goes to bed. Clean basket of clothes on the living room floor get folded around 9PM...Glad to know we aren't the only ones not perpetually prepared for company.

I think I would die on the spot if my MIL ever showed up (announced or not!)...

...And your house simple sounds "lived in", a home not a display house!

Hope you had a good sleep!

Sounds like our house. You are not alone!

DUUUUUDEEEE! WRONG for your MIL to show like that. I would have been PO'ed!!!!!! And that just isn't a pop in ... that is a DRIVE TO YOU! Wrong. On so many levels.

don't call me MA'AM said...

Yep... our house, too. In fact, we have laundry (clean) in our living room, too, at this very minute.

My parents live literally blocks away, and we can go weeks between actually seeing them. Kinda nice.

I don't let anyone in my house unannounced. Yeah, I'm just mean.

Yeaaaaa, Project Runway is back on! Who is your early favorite? I don't fret too much when I miss part of Project Runway because they always show it back to back on Wednesdays.
