This is in no way a criticism or jab at the very nice people who I now can call friends, but
Lessons Learned from Inviting An Entire Family (of 3+ a dog) stay in our house.
1. Don’t do it.
End of story. We thought it would be a short stay (all of us), mostly completed while the Asrai portion of the family was on vacation for 2 weeks. The rental market turned out to be tougher than we imagined and it turned out to be 2 months. but it’s all done now, I will not miss my two year old screaming “NO” at their four year old.
And I discovered, I am really a bitchy person at times. People think I’m nice and sweet and kind. I am a bitch. That’s okay. My husband is the only person that has to put up with it on a full time basis. Being pleasant all the time is EXHAUSTING.
