Thanks!

Thanks to all of you for listening to me whine and for your great comments.  My MIL will be heading out early tomorrow morning.  She will be taking a few things out to Justine for us.
Justine decided early on that her mattress is pretty uncomfortable and wanted a waffle pad for it.  I'm sure they are less expensive to get here than in Philly.  She also requested two more of her pillows.  One for the bed and one for her desk chair which evidently doesn't provide as much back support as she would like.  I also tucked a jar of peach jam- dubbed Gelatinous Yum by the children into her stuff along with her travel mug which she forgot in the car when she unloaded things.  She appears to be settling in well.  I haven't heard from her at all today- a first.  She has been in orientation so far and classes actually start tomorrow.
I managed to get 7 pints of enchilada sauce canned this evening between running I15 around to band practice, picking up prescriptions and getting a few last school supplies for the boys (those upper grade teachers don't tell you what you need until you start class).  Not bad for a Wednesday.
I've noticed I've been much more irritable than usual the past few days- I'm sure it is just my pent up stress and frustration.  Hopefully things will calm down soon and we can figure out our "new normal" routine for the school year.

Thanks again for all your support.  Tomorrow night I will sleep very well.

  2. You just need your house back. No matter who the house guest is, it always drains the homeowner.

    1. Yup. I agree. The hardest part is that V doesn't seem to understand how much I feel that my privacy has been violated. I mean, OMG, she went into our bedroom and rearranged my shoes!

  3. Getting back into the school routine after summer break is always a bumpy ride, but pretty soon you'll be all in sync. And HURRAY to getting your house back!!!!

    1. Actually, except for the MIL issues, the back to school transition has gone fairly painlessly.
