what a great post, I'm roflmao, it sounds too too reminiscent of various holidays/visits we've spent with my own inlaws. With us, there are three inlaws since my wife has a very complicated family. And the three have varying degrees of formality and "properness". And of course the disasters happen at the most formal of the three homes, the toddler vomit on the formal couch, broken furniture, food rubbed into carpets, etc. Well at least your home now where you don't have to worry about things like that (right?)...

When at all possible, I try to ensure that my visits to someone else don't exceed a week. That's for their sanity, and mine.

Sadly, we did all that damage in just three or so days.

Chip: What, me worry? I'm about as proper as mud pie. Though having visitors to OUR home sends us in a frenzy of last-second cleaning, out of fear they'll catch something deadly and sue us.

OE: A week is about three days longer than I can stand being in someone else's home, no matter how squeaky clean and welcoming.
