Some people are born to have parties and decorate and bake and whatnot. This is me saying (Loud and clear) I. AM. NOT. ONE. OF. THEM. Nor will I ever be so I need to just accept that my gifts from God have to do with the woo/woo realm and not the Martha Stewart realm. I truly enjoy going to someone’s house and can so appreciate all that goes into making it look pretty and whatnot but to even try to do that myself? Just … no.
Big thanks go out to my sweet family for accepting my shortcomings and fur covered house (no matter how many times I use that expensive Dyson) and tell me how great things were. I love them all. And hereby notify them that I am done having events here. Forever.
Anyway, I’m glad it’s over and most especially glad I am off today. Thank you to Travis (work dude) for nudging me to take this day off too. Duty is headed over to Delaware to watch Nephew ‘O Love play hockey in some tournament and will be spending the night since there are a bunch of games tomorrow. Me? I will probably putz around the house a bit, drink more coffee, venture out into the wilderness (not near a mall, mind) and just BE.
Hope you guys had a wonderful turkey day full of things that allowed you to see your abundance of blessings.

What is your problem?? Everything was absolutely wonderful… I don’t know what hair you were talking about but I didn’t see a thing. The only thing I saw were two wonderful people opening up their house for the family. Lisa, you and Bill did a GREAT job. Every thing was hot and delicious and done with love. I don’t won’t to hear that from you any more….. You are who you are and that’s why we love you. Would you have felt better if we tossed some rolls around ???? Please stop that stupid talk. Love Ya!
Sorry, chickee…you are the relative with the pool. We WILL be having future parties at your house. Does luau – themed bridal shower sound familiar??? I’ll be happy to vacuum…me and the Lukester.
If it weren’t for having a kid I’d toss the whole program. Land me one of those rotisserie chick’n’s twirling around smelling up the deli at the local supermarket, a tub of potato salad and a six pack of Snack Pack puddings.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, you’ve been missed. See I need a gal to challenge me thwats, keep me in check and back on line and back to reality. =O)
My rant was a basic build up of having a red state boss who is out to profit over the Inauguration. Wanna talk peeps out of it. Half of ’em are very poor and everything is non-refundable. It’s taking advantage of peeps and their passions. It sucks.
In addition, seeing the back end of things – it isn’t going to go well at all. I see them all sitting on tour buses stuck in VA on I-95 and never getting to DC at all. But I can’t say that – although I just did.
I thinketh that I shalt do better flippin’ burgers at McDonalds.
I’m with you. My culinary skills include opening cat food cans and adjusting the timer on the microwave. May I recommend a Roomba? As one with 3 cats (and who is indeed THAT lazy), it has helped keep my floors a little less furry.
I’m glad you had such a terrific holiday and I’m impressed that you met your Cookie. (I read the previous post, too.)
