Here it is, the day before Thanksgiving, and we’re all supposed to be cleaning the house and getting ready for my parents and sister to arrive later tonight. Instead, the boys are playing with the puppy, my husband is laying in bed watching something he DVR’d from HBO, and I’m hiding in the kids’ room, on the computer. It’s early, I’m sure we’ll get everything done in plenty of time. Although I’d really just like to climb back in bed and sleep another couple of hours. Sigh.
Am I cute, or what?
Have you ever bought supplies for something specific, like chocolate cake, and then discovered that someone has used all the eggs for something else? Only you don’t find out until you get to the part in the recipe that says “add eggs”? I have a feeling that something like this is going to happen today. Although I’m not entirely sure that I have everything I need, I am convinced that something I should have hidden is going to end up as lunch today, despite my best intentions to leave it for dinner on Friday.
Meanwhile, I still have laundry to do, paperwork to take to a new day care, a scarf to finish knitting, dish towels to embroider, dishes to wash, and……… If I start now, I’ll be done in time to take a nice long nap this afternoon. Right?!?!?!?
