So the whole reason for the cleaning is not surprisingly, because we're having a house full of company for Thanksgiving. So of course as I am moving about my house, I suddenly see 3,000 places that need cleaning. Everything from black residue from the hinges on our doors, to dog hair in places I couldn't imagine, to crap on the white face-outs of our staircase that you see right when you walk in the front door... The list goes on and on of all these little places I don't normally think to clean that somehow I suddenly notice when company is coming. Gah!
So I go to thinking, maybe this year we should start a new tradition. How about "Thanksgiving by Candlelight"? That would save me soooooooooooooo much cleaning if it were nice and dark and no one could see my dirt! I could give everyone their own Garmin GPS and tell them, "Ok, the turkey is at these coordinates, the bathroom is at these coordinates, the pumpkin pie is at these coordinates..."
That's what I dread about Thanksgiving - it's not the cooking or the dishes, it's finding and cleaning all those sneaky dirty spots!
Thanksgiving is an AWESOME holiday, but is there one thing YOU dread about Thanksgiving? Is it the 4 hour car trip to the second cousin's house? It is green bean casserole? Digging the neck and gizzards out of the turkey? Tell me!
The end, but not really - I want to hear what you have to say!
