Get Together's And Potatoes.
You know those big events were everyone is invited. Particularly family?
Yea, we're having one of those.
Thank God it's not at my house! I don't know where we would fit 40+ people including children. Instead my sister-in-law is hosting it and I feel her anxiety and pain at the thought of all those people rummaging around through the backyard and her house. I've always wondered why before such a huge get together the hostess decides to clean the house from top to bottom.
I mean, let's be serious as soon as you let loose a pack full of children...that cleaning is as good as "never been done".
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE get together's. I love the feeling of being part of a large family and getting to enjoy good food and conversation with that family.
Well, I just wanted to post a quick (really short too) update to let my readers know why I've not been posting regularly this week. Been super busy helping get things ready plus I had to do a few translating jobs for some friends. It's difficult living in a country were you don't know the language. So, I help out when I can.
Anyways. The plan for tomorrow is :
4-5 A.M.- set 4kgs of potatoes to boil
5-6 A.M.- clean boiled potatoes
7-8 A.M.- entertain/feed/change/and prepare Baby J. for get together
8-9 A.M.- sneak in a quick nap before taking off at 9 for get together.
Yep. So, off to bed I go.
4 A.M. comes round mighty quick.
