I have tried several different schedules to keep this new house clean and running smoothly. With all my good intentions, none of my plans have worked out well.
So, I have gone back to my old standby..www.flylady.net. This lady's schedule is awesome, and so not overwhelming. OK, well, it is a little overwhelming when you have to read all the directions, but after that, your house runs like a dream!
What I love most about Fly Lady is that she makes sure you make time for yourself, i.e. bubble bath or read a book. She also sends you daily e-mail "challenges" and reminders so that the housework doesn't get too monotonous.
Thanks, Fly Lady!

One of Don's best buddies, David, had a dinner party Saturday night. There was six courses and a professional Chef involved. It was so much fun, until I got sick and had to leave during dessert which was a pillow soft molten dark chocolate cake...my favorite. :(
We are so going to this guys new restaurant for round two on that cake and his crazy good fillet minion in cherry truffle sauce!
All I could think on the way home was how fortunate we are to have these kind of opportunities.

OK...I admit it, I am too vain to invite people over when our house isn't decorated properly. Thank, Mom. I don't want people to think I am as tacky as my house looks.
On the other hand, I just couldn't go a whole year without having a crawfish boil. So, I invited few close friends [Their names have been omitted to protect the innocent.] over to eat bugs. All of our fingers burned for days, but it was worth it!
