Having my home blessed. What do I do???
#3
I think you're too self-conscious.  Perhaps the priest did look at you funny but its common when overcome with anxiety to misinterpret signals.  we had our home consecrated when I was 9 and I don't remember a whole lot, but we just let father do his thing and prayed along when required to.

Bottom line is (not to sound harsh or to demean your worries) to have your home blessed.  that in and of itself should alleviate any temporal anxieties of whether or not you're saying the right thing.  Of course, do what you can to say the right thing but don't feel like it'll be any less blessed if this priest also "looks at you funny."

Its a truly wonderful thing!  God bless.

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.
