I'm being invaded today!

(And not in a fun, dirty way!)

My family is coming to visit. My parents, my sister Jo, and Little E.

The E-man is staying with his other grandparents for the weekend. We've told him he can visit after he finishes kindergarten next year.

I love my family. I love them a lot. And my apartment is the perfect size for one person. Two bedrooms and one bath is just fine for a single woman with two cats.

But it becomes pretty tight when three more adults and a child descend.

So... I'm trying to not stress out about this. I'm planning to hit the gym each day to get a couple hours alone (and perhaps use the shower)

And I'm going to look at visiting The American Girl Doll MegaStore as an "experience" and try not to lose my nut.


Wish me luck!

Good luck, girlie! Luckily, American Girl dolls aren't on Nita's radar yet, but again, she's only 3, so I don't kid myself that they won't be at some point. Make 'em feel at home here in the Chi. You, and they, will be fine. :-)

When you go to American Girl Doll, make sure to eat there. They do a great "luncheon" --- no joke, it is worth it, kind of fun, and something you can only do with a kid in tow and not feel really stoopid, so sit back and make the most of it. When you are having lunch, do the questions game. Trust me on this.
