For The Love Of.....

I've always hated unexpected visitors...ALWAYS. Even when I was young in my parents house I hated that feeling of surprise but now that I'm married and have a young child it's multiplied by 100000. I think it's so incredibly rude for people to just show up at your house out of nowhere. ESPECIALLY knowing that you have a baby and that baby might be taking a nap and you're possibly enjoying your few minutes of solitude and then...low and behold: rude LOUD knocking and ringing surprising you. I'm just writing to vent because it JUST HAPPENED and I'm peeved off. Here I am, 1:30pm on a thursday, just finished feeding the baby and enjoying a re-run of a show I missed last night. I haven't even showered yet, wearing next-to-nothing, hair is a mess (i'm african so when my hairs a mess it's REALLY a mess), dishes aren't washed and have yet to do my daily cleaning...and then knock KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK. Are you serious? And obviously my almost-2-year old runs to the door so I had to do everything in my power to grab him first, try to make him understand "ssshhhhhh", lower the volume on the TV and run upstairs and wait a good 5 minutes until the knocking stopped. And I look out the window and it's familyf riends that I haven't seen in awhile who txt me yesterday and I txt them back telling them to stop by on Friday (tomorrow)....So WHY they would be showing up today unexpectedly with no phone call is a mystery to me O and they also have a baby that's about 6 months AND a 3 and a half year old so you can imagine how my peaceful day would have gone if i opened the door. And it's ultra important for me to only want people to come over when everything's in tiptop shape because we just moved into a new house and obviously when people come for the first time I want things to be neat n tidy. But people just don't get it...jeeez

I can totally relate to this! Glad I'm not the only one :)

Yes, it is soo annoying, right? Those people stopping by at random times seem to think they are 'rewarding you' with their presence, when in fact they are just messing up all your plans and routine. Hard for them to believe, you actually DO have a life to manage around them. <br />

I hope you've settled nicely at your new place by now.
