    It'll be just hubby and me for Thanksgiving, but I have to say, expecting company does make for a thoroughly clean house several times a year. I keep a tidy house anyway, but there's nothing like a complete dusting and windowwashing. Company is the only thing that forces me to do it.

    Good luck, take a break and keep up the good work!

    We are going to my husband mothers. I wish you felt better. Try to rest as much as you can or ask for help. It sounds like you need a time out. Try to relax or you will be to stressed to enjoy any of your company. Take Care of yourself. [​IMG] DJ

    I have given up trying to make everything immaculate. If the kitchen and bathroom aren't gross, I'm good to go. I concentrate on what I enjoy - the food. [​IMG]
    Besides, I only invite people who know that I am imperfect & are okay with that. My SIL once found that I had put in the toilet bowl cleaner w/o actually scrubbing. She finished the job for me! Whatta gal. [​IMG]

    So I give you permission to stop what you are doing - right now - and have a cup of tea.

    LOL I have taken down all of my curtains, washed the windows. Replaced shower curtains and toilet seats! Dusted (not finished) mopped, sorted...discarded...And I look around now and my house doesn't look any different than it did yesterday! Except the curtains are missing. They will come, they will dirty my clean floor, eat my food, trash the toy closet, my fridge and dishwasher will be on overdrive for 3 days afterwards. I'll notice dust somewhere that I had missed and feel guilty. And then....They'll all come back again in 5 weeks! Must be they like me:)

    gotta love the holidays.

    shhoot! I forgot to buy a turkey!
