I had the Easter dinner table all set the night before, beautifully I think, with my second hand china that my mother-in-law bought me from an estate sale, and the silver plated tableware I recently picked up at a consignment shop. The tablecloth came from an Am-Vet resale shop years ago, and the cloth napkins I found at a discount store, 8 for $1.99! I've had the glasses for over 30 years, also a gift from my in-laws.
I am thoroughly ashamed to say that two days after Easter, the dirty dishes are still stacked up on my kitchen counter. I came down with a head cold on Saturday and I just have not had the energy to finish the job! (maybe today?)
So again, after all the effort to put my best self forward, I have to admit I'm not so perfect afterall. Look at it as part of my healing process! And pray the mistress of this domain will get her act together soon!
