Yesterday I had scheduled a luncheon at my house for six of my daughter's closest friends to plan her second baby's shower. It's a girl, by the way, and I am soooooooooo excited. I have my Kelly girl and she is four years old and my pride and joy.
Well I write about this here because, I cannot do housework physically so I am suffering the day after, but boy was it a lot of fun.
I brought out my good china and flatware and rolled up luncheon meats and bought fruit and veggie trays and purchased some new drinking glasses and had a ball. I haven't been able to use these items for years, since my fibro got really bad, so it was a little bittersweet for me. I used to enjoy having the family and friends over for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, but then I became so incapacited that we switched it all to my daughter's house, so my china and good items lay dormant in the china hutch.
I had spent three days cleaning my living room, kitchen and preparing for the party. I got up at 5:30 am the day of. I have had to do a few things on my feet and then I have to sit down for a while, then back up and so on. Just unloading the dishwasher and reloading is a trial, so I usually use my wheelchair. It helps a lot.
Well, the girls were impressed with the spread and we went to the party store afterwards to look at the theme I had chosen and they all loved it. We bought the invitations and they will return next Saturday to write them all out. Hope my house stays clean til then. LOL
Thanks for letting me share here.
