Visit causes cleaning frenzy
I didn’t want him to think he was bothering me.
He then proceeded to tell me that he and my stepmom are on vacation this week and would like to take a drive up to Ruston to see me. At first I was excited. Unlike the evil stepmoms and deadbeat dads from the more cynical fairytales, my folks are actually quite fun. And the idea of their visit was abstract at that point because the plan had not been set in stone, so I wasn’t worried about them coming through on their threat.
