Whining & Dining

Am I the only one whose dining room table looks like this most of the year?

Not that it normally matters since no one is ever home to eat at the same time.

Mr. Snarky uses it as his own personal landing strip upon his daily arrival and it isn't uncommon to find shoes atop the table.

It makes you feel sick, doesn't it?

I know. Me too.

So about a week before the holiday I start to mention that I'd rather not use his basketball as a center piece no matter how much it resembles a pumpkin.

In a little over 48 hours we will be sitting at this exact table to eat our dinner.

Between now and then I will: have someone clean this table off, bake 4 pies (2 pumpkin, a coconut cream and a key lime), wrestle a turkey, make a variety of side dishes,  clean my entire house, break out the china, table cloths, and napkins, decorate the table, and yell at the dogs a hundred times to "get out of the kitchen" only to call them in again when I spill something.

I'll let you know how it turns out...I'm sure you've got your own problems. 

Happy Thanksgiving and remember...they all have to go home.
