Okay, so I had to add a little greenery that has no function other than to make it look nicer. We may have to move that before we set the table, I think I can handle it...maybe...or maybe we should just eat around the island...

You didn't think this post had anything to do food, did ya? Those of you who know me well know I sustain my family with food only because it is needed for survival. Otherwise I would do away with the whole mess of it...planning it, buying it, preparing it, cleaning up after it. All a huge time sucker and money sucker! But this post is not about my ill feelings towards cooking, so I digress. I usually have some sort of centerpiece in the middle of my family's dinner table. In all honesty, it is a pain because we have to move it off the table every night for dinner. In fact, I have been known to say, 'Let's all just eat around the island tonight,' even if it means Mom and Dad have to stand, because I am being too lazy to move the centerpiece. Then a thought struck me! What if I used the centerpiece to hold everything we need to set the table and it can stay right where it is? What is the saying...'Necessity breeds invention.'
