You know how on HGTV the people looking for a house or those remodeling the house always say, "we love to entertain?" Yeah, I'm not one of those people. You'll never hear me saying that. Inside I would love to be social and would love to have people over all the time, but the truth of the matter is that I'm socially awkward and that having people come to my house gives me anxiety.
So this weekend was just hell for me. Friday we hosted a small birthday party for Anderson. Family came over and we had pizza and cake. Anderson opened a few small presents, mostly trucks and cars, and we surprised him with a new playground for home. It won't be here for a few weeks. He's going to love it.
Just last week my mom reminded me that I agreed to host Easter. I did what?!?! With my parents retiring next year, my mom has decided that my sister and I need to step up and starting hosting some holidays. My sister loves to entertain; me not so much. What fool decided to have a birthday and Easter in the same weekend? Oh yeah, me.
Anyway, my family pitched in and brought over their cooking specialties while Dave and I prepared a ham and some other stuff. We also hid hundreds (not kidding) of plastic eggs in the yard that contained money or candy. The kids went to town and did very well. I swear, Anderson has more candy from the egg hunt than from Halloween. That is not good for my waistline.
I was so glad when the weekend was over. Going back to work never felt so good.
Do you like to entertain?
What did you do for Easter?
