It's The End Of The World As I Know It

So I guess it isn't that bad, but my mother is coming to visit, and while I do love the woman dearly, the thought of here staying at my house for a few days drives me insane. I do not know why...

I guess it's because I have to "behave" while she's here.

No going out drinking with friends, and coming in the front door at 3:00AM (there goes my Sunday Rock Band party, and I am not kidding). No bringing home random women (yeah, that doesn't happen when she's not here, so I guess it's not much of a concern).

And then there's the real draw back.

No being at work all hours of the day. I've got someone at home waiting for me, and while the woman lived in Seattle for six years, I feel obligated to entertain. I am sure that during the day she will be visiting old friends and seeing the sights, but she's also here to see her son. That's me. That means that I have to be there. And while I'd like to think that I can show her around the office and our operation, I can't keep her occupied for long.


Oh shit... Door bell...

Good luck with that. A 'best behavior Stormin'? This should be interesting...

You should give her your blog address. That way she'll always know how her baby boy is doing.

I guess keeping her in an alcohol induced stupor the entire time is out of the question? Good luck, brother.

How long is she visiting? It might be a nice little respite (or you could at least think of it that way).

TCH: It has been odd.

Alan: Um... Never... She'll know exactly what I am doing.

Cazzie: Yes.

Mudge: Well, the food is great, and I don't have to cook any of it, so there is a bit of an upside.

Harry: I appreciate it...

Seq: A week and then I am on vacation.
