It’s ON

This evening the first wave of out-of-towners will arrive at our house.  It has been a helluva day.  Let’s review the itinerary:

  • Thursday PM – my best friend and her adorable 2-year-old arrive
  • Friday – my parents arrive
  • Saturday afternoon – my wife’s parents and brother arrive
  • Saturday PM – baby shower
  • Sunday AM – Father’s Day brunch
  • Sunday afternoon/evening – out-of-towners depart
  • Monday AM – movers arrive (this is a day earlier than I had expected until 11 o clock this morning)
  • Tuesday AM – the truck heads out-of-town

At the moment I am concentrating on breathing in and breathing out.  I WILL enjoy the weekend and WILL NOT get sucked into everyone else’s emotions.  My job is just to be me and hold my own space.  I am not responsible for everyone else.

Ok.  Cross your fingers for me.
