Today we are home and not leaving this house no matter what! I feel like I have been running around for the last three weeks and all I want to do today is clean, bake, cook and relax. I have big plans to make a double batch of bread/rolls so I can freeze some, plus I am making empanadas for dinner and need to make the yummy spiced chicken filling which cooks all day long.
I was going to slowly attack the cleaning this week since everything is a wreck from the back to back trips, but my MIL called yesterday and told my husband she *might* come for the 4th. WTF? Who says they *might* come to visit, especially since it has been nearly two years since she has come here, and she has not even met Finn yet! Ugh. We have a full house so to make room for a guest is a bit of an undertaking, plus the bathroom door upstairs is not on yet and she is a vegetarian which means I have to plan meatless meals and buy the ingredients. We also had plans for the 4th and the kids will be bummed if we have to miss it because we are stuck waiting for her here, she is less than reliable or timely so we never know if/when she will show up. I am really hoping she lets us know today if she is coming or not so I can either kill myself preparing or not....what a pain.
