Another quick post because Company’s Coming, and because I would rather be here writing than cleaning and doing laundry any day!
If I hadn’t married MacGyver who has 5 brothers and sisters, 24 nieces and nephews, and 87 cousins (that’s an estimate on the cousins – too many to count)…
And if 25% of them weren’t coming to visit this weekend…
And if my house wasn’t a perpetual cycle of clean, bake, wash, scrub, cook, pick-up, tidy, dust, repeat…
And if I hadn’t been awake at 1:00 AM going through the pile of
all the mail from the past three weeks yesterday’s mail so I could check for coupons to make my shopping list to prepare the meals to feed the masses…
Then I would have missed out on this!
Ironically, yesterday I posted a bit about my garden.
Notice the expiration date. I have five days left to select the plants and seeds for my garden and take advantage of this $25.00 coupon.
You see, sometimes things happen for a reason. If I hadn’t married MacGyver and between 18 and 80 relatives weren’t coming this weekend, and I didn’t have to clean, bake, wash, scrub, cook, pick-up, tidy, dust, and figure out what to serve them, I might have left the pile of mail untouched for another
three weeks few days and I would have missed out on the $25 coupon.
Family for three days PLUS a $25 garden coupon? Priceless!
If I can sneak another post or two in over the weekend, I will. If I can’t, I’ll see you Monday. Enjoy your weekend! Bon weekend!
