Years ago, when I had four kids in five years, I realized that having a clean house was an unrealistic (and unreachable) goal. My house was where my family resided but was never my primary role.
I still feel that way. It seems kinda sad to retire only to spend your remaining years doing nothing but cooking and cleaning for yourself. You really need to get a life!
Anyway, this attitude creates a problem when I'm having guests. I'm doing Easter dinner for ten people and I have to start cleaning now. The menu is:
- Baked ham and salmon
- Hash brown casserole
- Four bean salad
- Waldorf salad
- Dinner rolls
- Relish tray
- Cherry pie
- Lemon meringue pie
Then after the guests and food are all gone. I will start back on a diet eating vegetable soup and sugar free jello. I am getting SO BORING!
