I have to head out of town for a meeting Sunday and Monday, which doesn't seem long, but I might return to find my parents in my house :surprised I'll know by tomorrow...they are getting tired of getting dumped on by hurricanes in FL, so if Ivan is headed their way, they're headed my way This should be interesting. They've never visited my house before, and will likely be arriving after I've left, so they will be on their own in my house for two days without me! I don't even want to think what they'll do to the place. Based on my experiences with them in my sister's house, my mom will start rearranging things if they aren't where she would put them, and without me here to stop her, I may never find anything in my kitchen again! And my pots may never survive her scrubbing. But, she seems to be hedging based on the email I just got, so my house may still be safe. Anyway, if I have to entertain the parents, I might be away a few more days (or I may just pretend I have a lot of work to do and ignore them while visiting PF).
