A very abbreviated weekend recap

The meet-the-parents weekend went off without a hitch. The Phillies even managed to win the game we attended. My parents were pretty well behaved. My mom's only real embarrassment was telling MVP he had a cute accent. I think it was natural for me to be stressed out about it and on Sunday night I just felt relieved that it was over. Not that it didn't go well....I had just worn myself down getting so stressed over it. When I was spending time alone with my parents on Sunday during the day, I just felt completely out of it, I was so exhausted.

Thanks to everyone for the words of encouragement and emails asking how it was going and how it went. Made me feel much better knowing I had some people over in my corner rooting for me.

As excited as I am that it went well (and also that it's over!), I thought I would feel different somehow. Like, more comfortable with this suddenly feeling very "real" to me. But I still feel somewhat unsettled with it or something. I think I vacillate between being really happy and content to feeling incredibly scared and nervous. But who knows, maybe that's just some lingering effects from today's DC earthquake?

I'm hopeful if I just give myself some time, everything will fall into place. Seems like a reasonable plan, right?


  1. Um. I just posted about BP and I ended with like the same line. Not kidding.

  2. Ha, probably because we have parallel lives! I actually have your posting open to read, currently minimized on my screen as I enjoy a glass of wine and depressing movie to go with my current melancholy mood.

  3. Sounds like a great weekend. I stress out about everything, too. Stuff like that deserves some stress though! Glad it all worked out.

    Didn't feel that earthquake over here in MI! What can I use to explain my craziness?!

  4. I'm so happy to hear the weekend went well with your parents and MVP! How crazy was that earthquake? Definitely a first for me!

  5. totally reasonable - it will all fall into place, don't stress!!

    i'm glad the phils could pull out a win for you down in citizens bank park, south. :)
