...I'm not sure if you will see this post before we see you, but I want to deliver my apologies in advance. Actually, this post can extend to anyone who may ever come visit us in our little abode. It's probably a bit unseemly to air one's dirty laundry in public this way, but goodness knows I'm not known for my social graces. Ooooh, but hey, dirty laundry is actually one thing I don't need to apologize for...errrr, wait, there will be dirty laundry once the kiddos get up and get dressed. Crap. Oh well, let's move on, shall we?
*I apologize for my social awkwardness. I do love people, honest. I just get supremely anxious when meeting new people. I tend to talk inanely and too much at times and then struggle to get any words out whatsoever at others.
*I apologize for the state of our home. There are still boxes that have not been unpacked from our move. There are 300 home improvement projects that need done immediately and 3,000 more that need done eventually.
*I apologize for my children's behavior. We'll just leave it at that and let it cover for a wide variety of things you may witness or experience. :P
*I apologize that my meal-planning is non-existent for your visit, so we shall be winging it. Normally this is one place where I do well, but with Sandy and with trying desperately to finish up our school quarter three days early so it wouldn't interfere with our time together, well, I sort of fell down on the job.
*I apologize for Baker. He is looooong overdue for a bath. And he occasionally forgets his manners.
*I apologize for the mess. (Actually I'm hoping, probably in vain, that this apology is unnecessary. The house is clean and tidy now, but seeing as the munchkins will be alone here for many an hour before we arrive back home with you, no promises can be made as to what will await us as we walk back in the door. I will likely try the bribery route in an effort to make this apology moot, but who knows if it will work.)
Okay, I'd probably better stop now before I scare you, and everyone else, off completely. Can't wait to meet you!
