My husband is having people over for a LAN party this weekend. This means that there will be people in my house all through the day/night for 3 days. I'm trying very hard to avoid letting this freak me out, but it's not really working. I'm going to have to be careful, aware, that there are other people in the house. I won't be able to walk to the kitchen in my PJs. Someone will inevitably come shooting around a corner and startle me half to death. There will be the sounds of elephants.

This prospect is making me a little insane. I've become so used to just the two of us (plus cats) that the idea of other people in this space, requiring interaction, is doing a number on my brain. I have the flutterbys.

So my plan for this weekend is to be elsewhere or so busy that I don't notice the disruption in routine. It won't help with the discordance in the middle of the night, when there are extra snores or sounds of people walking. But it will at least help during the day to keep me from feeling like I'm being trapped or need to hide in the attic.
