So we invited some friends over for a small new years eve celebration and I have been prepping all day.  I thought I would keep it simple and am cooking chicken for tacos in the crock pot, made choc chip and oatmeal cookies from scratch (only the oatmeal are dry because I misread the butter stuck and did not put in enough), homemade salsa, corn and flour tortillas from the store, refried beans, sliced fruit, salad, chips and a very sore back and aching feet.  Everyone will be here in 2 1/2 hours and I still have to slice the fruit and make the iced tea and warm the tortillas and am already worn out and ready to go lie down.   Why do I try to keep things simple and always make it so much more complicated than necessary? 
On top of that I turned on the teapot and forgot it and scorched to where it is worthless and when I made salsa, I burned the dried red peppers in the fire on the stove and inhaled the smoke and cannot stop coughing!  smhair   Note to self: hold breath when burning peppers. 
Next time we will order pizzas!

Well...maybe the worst is over & now you can sit back, relax, & bring in the New Year with your friends. I couldn't have done half of what you've accomplished getting ready and by now I would be balling & having a melt down because everything wasn't perfect. (maybe that's why I don't do very much entertaining anymore)

 My hubby just brought pizza home & he is going up town where all our friends & family hang out for New Years later. Me and my doggies will stay home. (which is the way I like it!)

Happy New year!

Never regret something that made you smile!

We shocked don't have people over anymore. It is just too stressful and I couldn't do a fraction of what Sue managed to do. One good thing that used to happen when I was married (until 1990, is, we used to have great house partied because my ex was a very good cook and an excellent host. That part of our 5 year marriage I remember, fondly.For Christmas, I only had my Dad and my son who helps me out a great deal. It was a quiet christmas and my son took my Dad into the city to visit his (my Dad's) wife, in the nursing home. Like some others on this forum, I cherish my alone time. I like walking around my house with bare feet and very little clothing. That's when I'm sure everyone out for a good while. I love having the choice of doing something or doing nothing, just me and the two dogs.

We're not totally antosocial, we do go to other people's home when  we're invited, but don't stay overly long. I want to be close to my bed and my bed buddy, in case I start feeling sore, achey all over and just plain old tired. Happy New Year everybody, this might just be the year they figure out what causes Fibro and from there, more choices on how to manage it. Lot's of love to all. I'm in Nova Scotia, Canada and we're having a dilly of a blizzard. I kind of like it, it's an excuse not to do very much. I'm cooking a Turkey breast, sweet potato casserole and dressing. That will make Dad feel better, then I'll feel better.
