No one needs you stressed out. My problem is that I can think of so many special things, and want to make them happen! I had to learn that not all of my family like to have all of the things happening. For some reason God saw fit to give this extrovert five introverted members of my immediate family! LOL!
Oh, how that can cause conflict! Also before I learned to keep a generally tidy home, the stress on me the day of an event carried over to my family. They didn't enjoy preparing for guests because mama would be crazy! I learned though, and now most of my kids, even some of the introverts, are good hosts and hostesses in their own homes!
This week, Tim and I are going to Rachel and Weston's apartment for dinner. What fun that's going to be!
I'd like to get my parents out for dinner, maybe next week. One of my mom's good friends is coming over tomorrow afternoon for a visit. I am going to try to have a treat or two and some tea ready.
5 tea bags of regular black tea
2 cups boiling water
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
6 ounce can of orange juice concentrate
6 ounce can of lemonade concentrate
