You know what sucks balls?
Hosting Easter dinner
The real fun starts today! Normally we go to Derrick's grandmas for brunch and an egg hunt and then my moms for dinner. Since he had his surgery we are skipping all that and having both sets of parents come here. Because me hosting Easter and cooking foods I have never cooked before on top of having two small children and a husband who physically cannot help at all seems like a super swell idea. I told them to come with low expectations. And I pray to god my children don't feel the need to scrub their houses top to bottom for me to visit. Since they are not going to be used to living in a spotless house like I grew up in, I hope they won't feel this way. It sucks.
i hate to say this, but your last little bit there is music to my ears. there is so much pressure on me to have a stupid spotless house that it makes everything else no fun. i dont understand the expectation of having a clean house with so many tiny ones around. maybe when they get bigger and dont NEED us for as much, but now? no way.
i'm proud of you for hosting. :) i bet if went great! you have to do what you have to do to take care of your family.
