A few days ago, I was saying that I'll be hosting a gathering today. Divine and Rechelle will come here in our place to visit me. I had a very short slept this morning. I was busy cleaning our little home yesterday and at midnight I started baking the cake for our dessert today. I finished past 3 am and I knew that I have to wake up early the next day to prepare the food. I went to bed 4:30 am already and woke up 8 am. I started making the empanada which took me too long to finnish. While I'm in the middle of making it I had a dysmenorrhea and I started feeling dizzy. After a while I had to stop from what I'm doing coz I couldn't bear to stand anymore longer. I phoned Divine and Rechelle to come here 4 pm instead of 3 pm. After 1 hour of rest I felt better and went back to kitchen. I got so busy that before I knew it, it was 4 pm already and there are still 2 dishes that are not cook and I don't even have a cook rice yet. I felt so bad and I really wanted to cry. I felt so helpless and frustrated, despite the fact that I started early I wasn't able to finnish on time. I run to our bedroom and fixed myself very quickly. So that when they arrive atleast I look a bit descent. I was washing the dishes, tried cleaning the kitchen a bit and at the same time cooking when my phone rang. Rechelle was downstairs already and I really panicked. I was really worried that the food were not yet done and my visitors are starting to arrive. After I picked her we talked a bit while I was cooking and then the bell rang. I knew it was Divine, talking with Rechelle while cooking helped me to calm down. I just let the 2 ladies talked while I continue with my unfinished job in the kitchen. After a few minutes the table was ready and we started eating. I'm glad that the food was ok except for the chicken curry that is a bit salty. We watched lost together for an hour or two then the ladies were picked up by their husbands.
I'm happy with the experience today. It's my first time to be a host and it really feels good. Its my first time also to cook for other people other than my husband. I'm no cook or master in cooking but I am very happy I did fine. I was able to pull it off despite the fact that I did not feel well. I hope my visitors were happy with the food though. :-D
