Hippity Hoppity, Easter's on it's way

Posted Tuesday, April 6, 2010, at 2:21 PM

Wow it is amazing how quickly Easter has snuck up on us, it seems like just last week we were snowed in over the Christmas Holiday. So little time and so much to do to get ready for this blessed holiday.

Is it just me or do most people go crazy trying to clean and get things put together just to have family coming over. The very family that has seen you at your worst and has witnessed a cluttered counter and even happened to visit when you had nothing to offer them?

Why is it that we feel that we have to go to the extent of cleaning carpets and wash windows? Do we think that our adult children and grandchildren will actually notice those fly specks or the Asian Beetle juice on the windows or a coffee stain on the living room carpet? Do we think that a family member is actually going to snoop into the dresser drawers to make sure that your socks are matched or that your t-shirts are folded properly? Well I tell you what, I won't chance it...

I do realize that once the house is filled there won't be room to snoop to see if things are spotless or in order, but as long as I know that they are, that is all that matters. Am I a clean freak? Well my family seems to think so. I will say, now that we are on the farm I have relaxed a bit, but knowing that company is coming still has me spending the week rushing around like a crazy lady.

In my defense though, what better time to do Spring cleaning? If there were no time table, would it actually get done? We have had amazing weather and how does one constitute merely just sitting in the house watching "Ellen"? No can do, I have a list and it shall be completed by Sunday.

There are eggs to fill and time is wasting. Have a blessed Easter!
