Family time

My dad and two siblings on his side of the family have come down to visit me.

The house is insane. I live in a little basement apartment with a roommate and now three more people have come in. I'm a bit worried about them staying here. Usually when I'm with family I have a room I can escape to. But this time my family has taken over my room and I'm sleeping in the living room. So I have no privacy for the next few days.

I'm not sure how well I'll cope. When family visits me I have the luxury of having my nights alone to decompress. To have some alone time to watch Netflix and sleep. I don't have that luxury now. I can't even take my afternoon nap.

They're here for two full days, and it's day one of the two. I can do this. I have to do this.

In other news, I didn't have lunch at Tims with my family. It's a law in Ontario that all the calories are posted beside the food items at restaurants with over 20 locations. It's awful. I need to know the calories in what I eat, but when it's pasted up on a board I feel as though it's being yelled at me, shaming me for having food. I get paranoid that others are adding up the calories in my order. I like looking at the calories before hand, in private.

I came home and ate lunch but it's very frustrating to not be able to take part in eating lunch with my family.
