Confessions of a Hesitant Host Today at (in)courage

Months ago when (in)RL was announced, it seemed so far in the future. Plenty of time to plan. Plenty of time to clean. Plenty of time to morph into the hostess with the mostess.

So I bravely signed up. Of course I would host! No problem!

But guess what? Now it’s April and I haven’t done much planning, I haven’t done much cleaning, and I can promise you that I will not be the (in)RL hostess with the mostest. I feel queasy just thinking about it.

Does hostessing freak you out a bit or are you a natural? Join me today to discuss it at (in)courage!

    Hi Dawn! I’ve so enjoyed receiving your posts in my inbox-they always bring a smile to my face! I am not able to attend In(RL), and have to admit, I am a bit jealous! Lol

    Anyway-I recently posted about hospitality-and although I don’t necessarily consider myself a ‘natural’, (especially since I HATE cleaning my house! Lol) I think maybe my post could help calm your stress a bit…Come see!
    You will be fine! Wish I could come :/

      Sherri, I’m sorry you can’t make it to an (in)RL event. I’m feeling a little less nervous about mine since we had company (kids) a couple of nights this weekend and we got a good start on the cleaning. Now if we can only keep it up the next couple of weeks!
