Peach State says: Pampered…Not Forgotten!

20120521-180000.jpg
I did not forget about writing this morning…I was just a little preoccupied with cleaning for a Pampered Chef Party. The funny thing is…the house was clean Friday and ready. Sometime between Friday and last night there was an explosion of dirty dishes, dust, clothes and unexplained collections of debris. That was only the beginning.

Yesterday I dropped off a prescription and my son said he could pick it up for me. I told him the pharmacy closed at 6pm…sooo…he left the house about 6pm to pick it up! I had to pick it up is morning and then take a pill to my youngest at school. “Wasn’t that a fun way to spend 25 minutes?” I was driving into the school parking lot when a scary thought penetrated my overloaded brain. “Food…what was I going to serve? Oh No! I forgot to get the ingredients for the Pampered Chef Consultant to demo!” So the rush was on…and I still needed to complete the spit shine cleaning. I pulled up the recipe on my phone and darted through the store…completing my mission I raced home. I pre-heated the oven…and vacuumed the remaining floors, then I turned to lighting the candles for atmosphere. The doorbell rang…and all that I had left was the dusting of one table. I was thrilled and ahead of schedule. The food was laid out and my special little plates were laid out for my guests.

Later:
I am able to rest…there is nothing left for me to do…dishes are all clean, floors are clean…I am tired!
WAIT! I need to fix dinner!

Have a great evening!

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
