Getting ready for Thanksgiving

Posted in Musings on November 21, 2009 by xxxicana

It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving . . . the house is a mess . . . I have a ton of work work to do . . . and the parental units are coming into town on Tuesday . . . PANIC!!!!

Now, some believe that holidays are meant to bring family together for ritual sharing of torment, torture, recrimination, guilt, and disappointment.  NOT ON MY WATCH !!  Instead, we are going to enjoy love, life, drink, food, friends, and all the good things of family.  Nevertheless I am still in a panic wondering if I should iron the sheets for the guest room . . . ok, that is sick . . . but, just how much unclean can I get away with?  Do I make brownies (like my mother would for us) or just buy a bag of cookies?  Do my table linens match?  Can I vacuum the house with the shopvac? My God . . . how did I become so  . ..  so . . . Martha?
