I thought it would be a good idea to entertain MORE. What is MORE? We were already entertaining large crowds, small groups and overnighters on a regular basis. Realizing that, I changed the focus of my goal to not so much MORE but different.
Now, I would like to TAKE IT ALL BACK!
Here's a little peak into my calendar:
Friday, January 2 -2 Weddings, 1 Ring Ceremony, 2 Receptions. We missed one of the receptions. Just couldn't get there.
Saturday, January 3 - 2 Weddings, 2 Receptions, 1 visit to friend in hospital
So last weekend was almost 4 Weddings and a Funeral. And, okay, I admit, "I" wasn't entertaining. I was going to other people's parties. But how can I THROW a party if I'm AT a party???? Don't answer that!
And that was just last weekend. This weekend is another wedding and a shower. But once again, these events are NOT at my house.
Coming up AT MY HOUSE in the next TWO weeks:
All YM/YW coming here after their ice blocking activity for cookies and hot chocolate
A small breakfast for a class presidency
A family of four (who I've never met in my life) coming from out of town for the night. They are coming to get sealed in the temple! Way cool!
A baby shower for 65. Okay, I DID volunteer for this one! I'm excited about this one! And it is entertaining by choice which does fit into my non-goal. Yay for SIL having a baby!!!!
But I'm left with a few questions:
Why did I marry such a charitable guy?
Did Brian read my blog and volunteer me because he wants to help me with my non-resolution?
Should I have nipped his "inviting" behavior in the bud when he was a bishop?
Is he intentionally trying to send me to the loony bin? Oh wait, I live here! Just wondering???
So, step away from your mailboxes! There will be no inviations issued THIS month to small intimate dinners at my house. Maybe February....or maybe not.
