The main excitement here is that my mother's coming to town; she's arriving tonight and staying (with my sister) for five days. She'll be over here for at least a few meals, and I'll be showing her around Chicago during the days. It'll be nice to see her, but to be honest, a little nerve-wracking too -- this is the first time she and Kevin have met up in about ten years. It's not so easy, the whole white-boy-I-live-with-but-haven't-married thing. I suspect everyone will be on their best behavior, so it should at least be polite. But we're hoping for actually relaxed and comfortable, after a day or two. We'l see...if nothing else, it'll serve as a dry run for Thanksgiving, where, yes, I'll be taking Kevin home to join my family for the holiday. Eep. That's the plan, at any rate, unless one of us chickens out before then.
Right now, I have bathrooms to scrub. :-)
