This girl just wants to bead!

I just want to take a day off to get finished my new samples for my classes that I'm teaching at Suzie-Q Beads. It seems in the evening when I plan to do them, things just come up! (Like last night, Collin decided to invite his friend Mike over for supper... to cheer him up and show off the new digs :) So instead of beading, I spent the evening making Salsa Chili (which I love) and then till 9:15 we talked with Mike about his failing relationship with his girlfriend! (Poor guy, he really is in a bad place in his life right now!)

After he left, Collin kept saying how bad he felt that Mike has to drive out to Crossfield (North of the City) to stay with his parents till he and his GF sort out their issues. Collin even asked if we could let Mike stay with us for a while, to make it easier for him to get to work in the morning.
*a flag is raised*
Don't get me wrong, I do like Mike and know he'd probably be a good house guest, but I am a little skeptical of this idea. I mean, if I let him stay for a few weeks, what's stopping him from staying a month or longer??? And what I really don't want is him making his problem, MY problem too!!! (I don't want to have to kick him out, so I guess we'd have to have some CLEAR rules and terms!)

Does that make sense? or am I just being selfish?

Did you ever see You, Me and Dupree??

This is kind of sticky situation. I don't think I'd want to get involved either even if I wanted to help a friend. However, if it does come down to him staying with you guys, definitely have rules!

This girl wants to bead too. I just pulled out some of my older stuff and reminded me of some projects that I want to do.

Hope you didn't use that super hot stuff in your chili that you showed me.

Considering that you 2 just moved into your new place,having someone come and live with you is a bit much. You both need time to settle in before you guys start hosting guests.

"You, Me and Dupree"... I forgot about that movie! But yeah, that's the exact scenario I want to avoid, at ALL costs!

Collin still really wants to help him out, I think he's staying at our place tonight (they have a work golf tournament, so I said it would be ok) And I'm out of town this weekend (in Edmonton for my cousin's bridal shower) so I said he could stay over the weekend if he wants... I have a feeling he's going to end up wanting to stay permanently if I give too much leaway without rules! Ahhhh...

reply to Katz:

We need to set up "Bead Nights" again, now that we both have specified bead rooms :) Yayy!!!

PS... I used only 3 pinches of that hot stuff, and I found it gave the chili just the kick it needed! :)

PSS... I agree, maybe that's why I don't like the idea of him staying with us, I'm just settling in myself!
