Before Tomorrow

Tomorrow night we are hosting the entree part of our church's progressive dinner. I don't have to cook the whole meal, fortunately, but I do have to roast a turkey, make a side dish, clean house and figure out how to seat about 50 people in my house. I can easily find room around our two big tables for 20-25 and I borrowed a table from our church building to seat another 6 or so. Where the rest will go is a good question.

Another good question is how will I keep my children from destroying the house while I clean it. I think finding seats for 50 will be easier.

Also by tomorrow, I need to get three swords and three fairy wands completed. I'm on my way, but not sure about my chances of success. I've got the padded blades for the swords done and their covers stitched. I'm in the process of putting a finish on the wooden parts, and once that's done, gluing the pieces together isn't hard, but I stil need to sew up the heads for three wands. I usually only manage one per night, so we'll see.

I always let too much creep up on me at once. I'm not good at spacing out my projects.


I have trouble with that too, spacing things out, but I also think that things just have a way of all happening at the same time! Sometimes you can be prepared, and others, well, no way!

Let me know if you come up with a good* way to keep the kids from undoing all your cleaning!

* Not including drugs or imprisonment.

Oh, I often "space out" on my projects ;-)
