Next Up: Cleaning the house a bit for the party. I learned to take it easy before a party in the past few years. My mom would go into a frenzy before parties. No wonder, there were 9 of us living in one house and I know for a fact I was a piggy. I remember my normally calm funny mom turning into a barking sergeant before she entertained
I found I mimicked this perfectly as I prepared for entertaining at my own home. Then my friend Madelon taught me:
"It's nobody's last meal" . Those 4 words have gone far in my mind. My aha moment.
Let's face it, I can clean for a week or more nonstop and you would still find a blob of pop on a kitchen appliance, some cat hair rolling across the floor like a tumbleweed, some Irish Lace in a corner high up on a wall, and the like. It just isn't' worth getting worked up about.
So Next up: Fresh flowers, because they make the house look great.
A good nap, because when I am tired, I am not a fun person.
Cleaning some jello off the stove.....because it is pretty noticeable....
Filling up the piñata and hanging it from a branch.
then as always: KNITTING!
