I know...life is almost worse than we can believe, and here am I complaining. I almost hate to post this but someone has to bring this to everyone's attention, especially right before the holidays.
I am the designated destination for the holidays because I cook from scratch, and apparently pretty well, since I can never dodge this. Other family and friends will take over the other holiday cooking, but not Thanksgiving or Christmas. No, those are mine. Drat! Tried to pawn them off.....no luck! It's okay because I don't mind (so much).
But, given the fact that I am a wuss and somewhat flattered that they all need sustenance at my home for what I consider the two biggest feast days (at least in our limited calendar of get-togethers), I would like to tell them a couple of things that would help. (I think that's the longest senence in my whole life of journalism.)
Could you keep track of your own dishes when you bring something? I don't mind washing them. I just want you to take them home so I don't have to track you down to return them.
Could you at least offer to help? I love entertaining, but I'd like to be in on some of the conversation at least and not feel like the hired help in my own home.
As I said before I don't mind doing the dishes, by hand, mind you, because most of them can't go in the dishwasher, but you should at least offer, don't you think? When I was a young lass, the younger set were in charge of cleaning up after the feast before we could take leave of the boring 'rents. What happened to that?
Sorry if I sound like Scrooge, but, if someone you know is hosting either Thanksgiving or Christmas, think about what they've done ahead of time to clean, prepare and make you welcome. And then, be very grateful you didn't have to do all that! Be grateful! And love them and thank them for making you part of their circle. Circles come around and go around. Play nice and have a great holiday season!
