Things are looking better now, since I've had time to get over the shock of my guest's arrival, cleaned up the sty a bit, made myself a good dinner and now, I'm ready to tackle the week!

I am not sure if I'm coming down with a flu or if it is just really bad allergies, but I am hoping that it is bad allergies, since lots of decongestant plus allergy meds seems to have improved my general outlook on life.

Things I have left to do before houseguest arrives:
Pick up some groceries
Make soup (this should be the #1 on all my to do lists simply because it always makes me feel better)
Do Laundry
Make her bed
Clean bathroom
Clean living room

Doesn't seem so bad anymore. Off to bed to get lots of sleep for whatever it is that is making me so miserable!

Came here from Seeking Solace. I think you should have told your houseguest "nope, this weekend won't work for me". Then they might lern that 48 hours isn't sufficient notice. Anywho, I hope you are feeling better and that you enjoy the visit.

Hi Wayfarer,
I have a problem with saying no. But, I'm getting better with the boundaries: Last time she stayed here, I let her sleep on my bed, but this time, she's sleeping on the fold-out couch.

Also to her credit, I found out through a mutual friend that she had prior plans that fell through at the last minute.
