Boy, we are just moving right along. The bathroom is completely done. The computer room is complete. The kitchen will be a "clean as I go". Josh's honey-do list is done (shovel snow, clean front porch, trash, etc.). The kid just finished dusting the whole house and is now drying the dishes. He also cleaned his whole entire room, including sweeping his floor and under the beds. I have done three loads of laundry already. We also went and did some major grocery shopping.

Josh just finished seasoning the 15 pound Sterling Silver Prime Rib Roast. It's sitting in the bottom of the fridge, waiting to go into the roaster tomorrow. He is now wrapping up the remaining gifts for his nieces and nephews.

I just have to finish up the laundry, vacuum my bedroom, and start labeling what goes in which dish. Yes, I am compulsive when it comes to cooking for a large group - there are 17 people coming over! I lay out all of the dishes and crocks the day before and label what is going where. I also get the serving spoon ready for each dish. I also need to get the kids' place mats ready.

Tonight I plan on doing a lot of baking. I am making pumpkin bread, banana nut bread, zucchini bread, chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and a lime chiffon dessert. I am also going to have Josh peel potatoes and season the turkey breasts. Hehehehe... and he's trying to enjoy his two days off.

I can't believe how much we have already accomplished and how much I have left. The easy stuff is tonight. It's so much fun working together to get it all done.

Catch you later...

I'm so much like you in getting ready for a party. The house is at it's cleanest. Everything that can be done beforehand is done. You have such a feeling of accomplishment.

Tell me about that prime rib. I've never heard it called that.
