I am a procrastinator.
I have known that Rob’s family is coming over for Easter dinner since Monday. (Back story, Rob’s sister usually hosts Easter, but she is a nurse and just found out she is scheduled to work.)
I have planned the menu, but not shopped for anything.
I have planned to clean the house to the standard that Rob’s family requires in order to not disown us, but not actually done it.
I have planned to finish all the laundry and have it all put away, but you know how that goes.
I am a really good planner.
My reasoning is that I don’t want to have to re-do anything. But I end up saving it all for the very last minute. When will I learn.
So today I will fight the masses of other procrastinators at my local grocery store for all the ingredients I need for this,
Death of our savior cookies
–some sort of yet to be determined appetizers
–some sort of yet to be determined desserts
Rob’s mom will bring one of her cream soup, cornflake concoctions. But I consider that more of a decoration than a food item.
And then there is the other stuff:
–Fresh flowers for the table
–Replace candy that I ate which was supposed to go in baskets
–Plastic eggs, what happens to these every year? Do the children eat them?
–Figure out what the hell I am going to wear that is both Easter like and appropriate for 30 degree weather
–Also the outfit must attempt to conform to my daughter’s Black Tie standards
–Figure out what the boys are going to wear
–Fold and put away laundry
–Clean all bathrooms, whenever I only deep clean the ones I think guests are likely to use they go and use the other ones
–About a million other things that are too boring to detail, which I know seems impossible after this list, but it is true.
Sadly this year I will not be baking the traditional braided Easter bread, that I have affectionately renamed Death Bread, since the ingredients EGGS! WHEAT! MILK! will kill me now.
And don’t think it is lost on me that I am sitting here writing about all the things I need to do instead of actually doing them.
