Cleaning, Cooking, & Company.....Oh My!

This weekend my house will be hopping. We are jumping back into the entertaining ring, and having a few people over to lunch on Saterday. In the past, my husband and I have always been social butterflies. We love having friends over to lunch or dinner or just to hang out. However, since our lives have become a bit more hectic (meaning three kids), I have found it to be very overwhelming having lots of company over. So we haven't been entertaining. Well, that is about to change this weekend. We're having friends over and my brother too, jump right in, right?
I'm up a little early today as I wanted to get a start on food. I'm making bread, baked chicken, brownies, and pesto for my pasta. This way things are done.
Yesterday I got so much done. I cleaned the house (dust bunnies be gone!), cleaned out closets (Wow, I didn't realize how big our closets were), and junked a lot of clothes and shoes and STUFF we never use (out with the old in with the new). Don't worry I gave it to a charity, who will make good use for it. There was nothing wrong with any of the stuff I gave away, other then it may be outdated, or we have moved onto something different. With all the new found space in our closets, I must go shopping to fill it back up again! :) Don't worry honey, If you're reading this, I'm only joking. By the way, yesterday as you may know from my previous post,I was feeling squished in my house. Well, when I was cleaning it, scrubbing floors, doing windows, bathrooms, dusting etc - I was actually a little glad my house wasn't bigger. I would have been cleaning all day instead of half the day. At times it is nice to have something small, however I would like the opportunity to see what it'd be like to have to clean a bigger house, just not this week.
I almost forgot, yesterday Peanut had a great day. She wore both her contacts all day! In other words she didn't lose any! Yay! I do hope we repeat that scenario daily. My oldest daughter was such a help. All day she kept going over to Peanut, and calling into me, "her eyes are still in mommy!" I hope so without out her eyes, contacts in place, she wouldn't be seeing much at all! Out of the mouths of babes :) Well I'm off to start a busy day....I have to go make my bread, see ya!

That's great that big sister is checking on Peanut's contacts. That could be really valuable help. I used to give Charlie's big brother a dollar every time he found a missing Silsoft, what a deal.
Someday you may be surprised by what Peanut can see without her contacts in. It's not that she can't see. It's just that her ability to focus is greatly diminished. But I've heard stories of kids picking up Cheerios sans lenses. -- Cheers, Bob

Bob- That's awesome! I wonder sometimes myself what all she can and can't see, she surprises us all the time. The monay thing is a great idea. I'll have to remember that one!

Yes honey, I read your post and have decided to sell the house and get a smaller one. I'm only doing this because I love you and don't want you to hurt your back. I am looking at a one bedroom studio that is completely stainless steel in the living space, even the furniture. All you have to do is hose it down. See I'm always thinking of you.

See ya later,
