THINGS I'VE ACCOMPLISHED TODAY

Since I worked yesterday, today is our Thanksgiving dinner and my in-laws are visiting from Minnesota.
  1. Prepared the turkey
  2. Prepared the mashed potatoes
  3. Prepared the green beans
  4. Prepared the Trisha Yearwood mac n cheese
  5. Prepared the dressing
  6. Had a nervous breakdown.
    I wish I was kidding but unfortunately I'm not. I'm the type of person who doesn't want help with anything. I don't want you to help cook. I don't want you to load the dishwasher. I don't want you to do my laundry when I repeatedly say I'm fine in the kitchen. I also don't like making small talk. It's exhausting trying to keep my shit together when so much is going on so I came upstairs and cracked.
  7. I feel like I should say that I do love my in-laws...
    They're amazing people and so much better for me than my own family is but I just don't do well when they're visiting because I try to portray that I'm a normal person not suffering with out of control anxiety even though they know.
