Company's coming...company's coming!

How many of you can relate to that??? Do you have people coming in for Christmas?

I had just a few days notice that I'll be hosting our family Christmas dinner Saturday. Oh MY!!! It's time to be Martha Stewart. I have already purchased a new Christmas table runner (I couldn't find a RED oval Christmas tablecloth...serves me right trying to find it this late in the month), a set of candles, a new cabinet in the bathroom (yes - a cabinet...something that was on my "to-do" list anyway). And I re-arranged my living room furniture. It's not "tv friendly" at the moment, but it's people friendly. Hubby was griping about not having room to move around since one table was moved for the tree - so now he can walk around without bumping anything (and he's smaller than me). And I moved scrappy boxes that were without a permanent home out into the garage (otherwise known as the dungeon). Oh - just in case you didn't know - we don't have basements in Louisiana - something about the water table?. BOY do I wish I had a basement. People who live up north get basements AND snow.

But I guess that's okay. I was wearing a short sleeve shirt today and clogs with no socks. And the air conditioner has been running.

The BEST thing about having company over - you get a spankin' clean house in the process - even if you have to do all the work.

I'm tackling more cleaning in the morning - then off to my daughter's school party. WHEW!

And no - I'm not done shopping at all. Which leads me with a famous movie quote - but not a Christmas movie quote this time.

I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow. ~Scarlett O'Hara~
