Having a BBQ tomorrow afternoon. It's a reunion of sorts for many high school friends. (some we haven't seen in YEARS)
It started out small enough but in the last week, it's grown to about 80. (yeah, don't ask! lol) We have enough room for everyone in the backyard so the size of the BBQ isn't that big a deal except for one thing...the bathroom.
When I first said "okay" to having the BBQ at our home, the list was about 15-25 people. I'm used to accommodating this many people on any normal weekend so it wasn't that big a deal. (my immediate family outnumbers that by 5)
Now that it's grown considerably, I'm wondering how to handle the bathroom situation.
When we have family
BBQ's there have been a few times when the guest bathroom is occupied so our family members will use our private master bathroom. It's rare but it has happened. DH and I are okay with this 'cause most of the times this has happened, it's usually my nephews that "can't wait."
However, I don't know if DH would be okay letting friends use our master bathroom if the guest bathroom is occupied.
Would it be rude to keep the Master bath off-limits?
The Master bath has all our personal items like makeup, facial products, brushes, etc, etc. The guest bathroom is devoid of anything personal. (except in one cabinet where my boys keep their toothbrushes, etc)
If it is not rude to keep the Master bathroom off-limits then what do I say when someone asks "is there another bathroom I can use?"
And yes, DH and I are looking into adding a 3rd bathroom sometime in the future. It's really needed. LOL
Thanks and I'll take everyone's advice seriously.
