The kids and I were over at a friend's house today, and after about 1.5 hours I started thinking, "Hmm, I wonder if it is time for us to go?" We were having a great time and I could have stayed for a lot longer, but I know that, on occasion, people have stayed at my house longer that I would have chosen. I watched my host carefully for tell-tale signs of over-stay, but she is too polite to do that to a slug. Fortunately, something came up (I think Brigham wet his pants) so it was a clear easy break. But it left me wondering about the appropriate times. I am sure there is a rule of thumb out there, but I don't know what it is. Any ideas?
