So happy December 15th!
Today I find myself wondering what in the hell possessed me to think that hosting two holiday gatherings with only one day in between them was a good idea! Seriously! Needless to say, I'm starting to get a little bit stressed. My bunco group is coming over tomorrow evening and I don't even have the food picked out yet. Or drinks. At least the house is pretty much as clean as it's going to get between now and then. Not that that's all that reassuring.
There's a certain number of things that you get used to as a way of life with dogs in general and giant dogs in particular. Things like spit on the walls. I often don't catch it as it's happening, therefore it doesn't get cleaned up immediately. Therefore, it accumulates. We periodically clean the walls, but it's not the most enjoyable task. And it's time consuming. The walls are starting to get there again, but it just ain't happenin'.
I also still don't have all of my decorations up. But at this point, I don't care as much. I'm pooped! Seriously, next year, I will only host the immediate family, relaxed gathering. That's it. They're blood. It's too bad if they don't like the spit on the walls!LOL
