Guess who's coming to dinner?

Ok, so it's not so much just dinner, but for the weekend. Next weekend (the 18th -21st) my dad and Pam are coming to visit me and Chip. They have only been to Kosciusko once and that was when we got married. It will be fun to have them in our home, show them our home and then maybe go to Wal-Mart. Just kidding, there is more to do around here than go to Wal-Mart.

They arrive on Thursday afternoon and I'm not sure what the plan is, but they said to make no plans because they just want to hang out and relax. That's a good thing because after Wal-Mart I just don't have that much scheduled.

Friday, I have to work so I figure maybe they will want to landscape my yard??? Wishful thinking?? Dad said something about helping us find a small old house to move to the back yard to fix up for a guest house or a play house for Chip....as if our adult tree house was not enough? We'd love to have something like that back there and my dad is the guru of making a treasure out of trash for nothing. He should have his own HGTV show, I swear. His latest endeavour was to move a house he bought for $400 onto a different lot, fix it up, and sell it. He's not yet finished with it, but the appraisal came in at like $160,000 or $180,000 I can't remember. It's ridiculous. Anyway, I hope something comes of our house hunt including the winning of the lottery to pay for this potential project.
Then I think that we are planning a ski / boating day out at the Country Club on Saturday. Chip will cook his famous shrimp recipe for a great Father's Day Dinner and then maybe they will finish landscaping my yard and we will take them back to the airport Sunday evening.

Now the things we have to do before they get here........Sigh. They are things that should have been done a while back but much like Leah Maria, special events give us reasons to whip everything into shape at a faster pace.

Hope everyone has a great day!
