I'm so done hosting holiday parties!! This has gotten to be an expensive day!!
I hosted my dad's sister and her family, my dad's mom, and my two brothers.
I got of work at 4pm yesterday. DH had to work yesterday 5pm- 7am, and again today 3pm-?? so I've pretty much done everything solo (COoking, clean up, etc). everyone got here last night.
I purchased all of the food except the pumpkin pie, and the turkey. (Including ham dinner last night, bacon and eggs for breakfast today, all of the sides today, all of the wine and beer).
My brother's dog has peed on the floor at least 10 times (meaning we have to have the carpets shampood, since we are renting), chewed up three of DDs toys (she's almost two, so this was devastating for her) The toys were picked up and put away in her room but my cousins left the door to her room open (after being asked multiple times to keep the bedrooms shut) and he got them out.
Now tonight my cousins knocked over the wii (well we're assuming we did) We all heard a loud crash, then they came downstairs and said the wii won't turn on, and that the power strip accidentally got turned off. My little bro went to look at it and asked them if it feel on the power input (since it looked liked the prongs were bent) And they got all quiet and wouldn't answer. (They're 13 and 12).
Ugh! I really don't care too much about DD's toys. (The stuffed animal is getting some stitches, and we can replace the plastic rhino, the rubber ducky from the Peabody hotel from our Memphis vacation is a lost cause though). The wii p*sses me off, not because it's broken but because they fricken LIED about it and thought I was dumb enough to buy the lie!!
Ugh I love my family but sheesh! I'm ready for a few days home alone to unwind!
