Let’s not even talk about tonight’s dinner.

October 9, 2010

Ignoring your pigsty house for 2 months while preparing for an audit is not advisable at the best of times, and it is an incredibly poorly timed activity if the audit ends the Friday before Thanksgiving. I mean, holy crap people, I’m serving dinner for 11 tomorrow and I have yet to buy a turkey! And having them sit at the dining room table? Well, let’s just see if we can find that table. No really, I dare ya.

I do remember at one point having wonderful ideas of Thanksgiving crafts to do with V. Of decorating the house, home-made pie and experimenting with a new stuffing recipe. Now, I have people coming in to my house in just over 24 hours, and I’d like to set the minimum bar at ‘not wading through sludge’. The dogs are blowing coat which adds volume to the mess. It now reaches up and swirls around your ankles, and if I’m lucky, follows you home.

New recipes? Homemade pie, stuffing, cranberries? I have to clean my kitchen to bring it to minimum standards to be able to trash it again. Am I too late for a caterer? I wonder if a turkey will defrost in time. I wonder if I’ll end up poisoning any of my guests…

I’m sorry for the lame-assed post, but I must go scramble like an idiot to prepare for tomorrow’s dinner and hope that I can offer something more than a cafeteria-style table for my guests.
