I love catering to the individual tastes of my guests. Relaxing on the patio with a specialty cocktail, and upscale yet simple hors d'oeuvres (that's French for snackies). Great conversations and perhaps a board game, or a movie. I love everything about entertaining.
Though it wears on you after a few days. It's exhilarating and exhausting all at the same time. Adjusting your regular schedule to accommodate your guests. Dealing with their animals/kids, hoping they get along with your animals/kids. Then there is the extra clutter, air beds, luggage, clothes, towels. I felt like I was constantly straightening and cleaning and washing dishes.
I am recovering from a long weekend with my sister and her dog. Her dog has a special diet, thus I had to feed my dogs separately. Her dog was like anyone in a diet, grouchy and constantly in the search for a forbidden food. One had to be constantly vigilant where they held their plate for fear of an extra snout spiriting away a tasty morsel from your plate.
After it was said and done, I was happy my sister came, though I was equally happy when she left. The spare room and the kitchen are back to their orderly fashion, and the dogs can eat their food in peace.
