Not only are my in-laws visiting at the end of this week, I invited them an extra day so they’ll have plenty of time with my hubby and the little hummingbird and they’ll be here for 5 freaking days.
I don’t remember what compelled me to invite them an extra day but I blame Miley Cyrus.
Whenever I hear her voice, I feel like I lose a few million brain cells so I probably saw her on
the Kardashian channel E!, my brain cells went pop, and then I came up with the not so brilliant idea of having my in-laws here an extra 24 hours.
I’ve been talking about them in therapy for the last few sessions and just before my therapist jumped out of the window, she told me that it sounds like no matter what I do, it doesn’t seem like they’ll ever accept me.
I can totally understand that and live with it but even if my mother-in-law will never accept me, I figured she can at least be civil but she’s not.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to avoid my MIL as much as possible and while on Pinterest last night, it came to me. I can cook and be stuck in the safety of the kitchen as much as possible.
When I say “cook” I mean microwave. Although just on Friday I actually used my stove and made a jalapeno popper grilled cheese which was orgasmic, by the way.
I’ve been on the Pinterest food boards but I haven’t found anything yet. I need to find recipes that are easy peasy but will give me an excuse to hide in the kitchen for
5 days awhile.
We always watch a movie when they visit and then we have to sit there for 2 hours while they do an ongoing narrative of the film and tell us in what ways it isn’t realistic. I decided we could watch Crazy, Stupid, Love because if anything at least I can stare at Ryan Gosling and his abs.
Since my in-laws tend to never give us any breathing room, if I can’t escape them while I’m in the kitchen, I’ll just use my old standby and hide out in the bathroom, making them think I have some kind of gastrointestinal issue that causes me to be stuck in the bathroom for hours at a time.
Whatever the case, it’s going to be a really long 5 days.
