We are having a Chanukah party tomorrow evening and I am trying to get the house ready tonight because I’ll be too busy cooking tomorrow and won’t have time to clean or decorate. The night before a gathering I always regret inviting so many people due to the large amount of prep work. Still, I know once everyone arrives I’ll be glad I invited as many friends as I did, and I won’t care that my bathroom sink is covered in toothpaste or that my house is still littered with unpacked boxes. Friends don’t care what my house looks like, so I shouldn’t either.
That doesn’t mean I won’t scrub the toilet and sweep the floors. A girl’s gotta have standards, after all. 
And yes, that is a level and a toolbox resting smack dab in the middle of my Chanukah decor. Ugh.
