So today is my daughters 23 birthday and my son is celebrating getting off probation (long story, he's 16). All 12 members of our family and my sons friends are going to be here at 5pm.
I have been working my ass off all morning so at noon I took a relaxing 😎 bath 🛀 and for now I'm resting. I get so nervous 😩 when my family comes over. My step mother is very opinionated about how well I keep 🏡 house. She has a way of hiding insults inside compliments and she judges how well we're doing by how clean our home is. This will be the second time she has ever been here (mind you that she lives five minutes away).
I want to make a good 😊 impression on my sons friends too because they have never been here before and he just started going to the school they are at two months ago.
Getting my son up and moving has been like pulling teeth even though it's his 🎉 party too.
Honestly my home 🏡 is always clean but I'm aiming for perfect👌. I don't know 🤔 why I care about what they think 💭 so much. Mostly I want to show everyone how good we're doing and I want my sons friends to want to come back over and hang out again.
My pain is minimal although my energy is very low. I'm scared 😳 if I do too much I'm going to pay 💰 for it later today. And this party 🎉 isn't starting till 5. I Have hours of standing, sitting on hard chairs, walking 🚶 around, and lawn games. The thought of it exhausts me. I'm happy 😊 but dreading 😟 the rest of the day!!
So how would you do things? How would you handle things?
