You can put out a great Thanksgiving Dinner, even if you have kids and 2 jobs.
Yes you can, don’t roll your eyes!
Its been crazy here. Bob has been in and out of the hospital.
The dining room still is not done.
Last week I was gone all week house and dog sitting for the boxers.
This week I’m dog sitting for my daughter’s dog.
My sister’s right hand girl just up and left the state with no notice, so I’m working a lot more hours.
Whole Life Overhaul is keeping me hopping lately…
Am I stressed?
Not about Thanksgiving. I have a plan…
Just like the other lessons at CommonSenseLiving, this is a great plan that breaks things down into tiny little tasks will get you through with some hair left on your head.
So what can you do this week to make your Thanksgiving Dinner great?
1. Plan how many guests, and if you need to sleep anyone.
2. Plan your menu.
3. Do a thorough housecleaning.
4. Wash all linens and towels just in case you end up with overnight guests.
5. Buy all of the non-perishables now.
6. If there are any foods you need to special order, do it now.
If you do these few simple things now, while it’s still relatively quiet – you’ll be amazed at how much easier it will be.
Take it from me. I’ve been doing this for almost 30 years.
It has shopping lists, housecleaning tips, recipes, checklists, and a blow by blow plan for getting that great dinner on the table in grand style. Really. It’s not as hard as you think when you have a great plan! It’s my favorite meal of the year.
