Hi, I have a Problem....
As I read maximavswife's post about the bins and stash she has in her basement, I thought of the email I sent to someone I recently met. We have been emailing bits of info about ourselves to each other.
This was my latest to him:
In being as open and honest as possible with you, I feel I need to make a confession to you before our friendship goes any further. It is something I have tried to fight for years without much success. Most of my friends and family are aware and they have just learned to accept it. Some have actually become enablers. I will sink to the lowest levels to fulfill this. I will go into areas most others try to avoid.
I am a dish-a-holic. :~) I absolutely love dishes!! I search for them at flea markets, estate sales, yard sales, resale shops, ebay...anywhere...except retail. I have several patterns that I've collected for years and others I have just for fun. I don't just let the dishes collect dust. I use them all at some point. I love to make 'tablescapes.'
I feel mealtime is more than just food. It's a wonderful time to share life...ups, downs, joys, disappointments, goals... With life being so hectic, I try to make mealtime special and setting the table to be fun, festive, romantic, etc. puts a special touch.
LOL I felt you all could all relate.
