Do you enjoy entertaining?

I've thought about this quite a bit in my life. My parents LOVED entertaining and they did it quite a bit in their lifetime. Parties at our house had become legendary among their friends. I guess my sister got the bug, too, since, after she got married, she hosted a lot of parties at her house, too. I don't know what happened with me. Usually, during all of those parties, I could be found all alone in a room somewhere reading. I didn't want to have any part of it. And I really don't know why. During my marriage, we talked about having people over and I admitted to my husband that I was very uncomfortable playing the part of hostess. My husband was very gregarious and could make anyone feel comfortable in his home. We did have a few get togethers with just a few people and those went very well only because my husband took the lead. Since I've moved into my apartment, I've had one or two people come over at a time. My place is way too small for any large gathering. But even if I know that two or three people are coming, I get very nervous prior to their arrival. How about you? Do you enjoy entertaining? Claudia photo from pixabay

I always say I don't, but now and then I enjoy a gathering for a meal. Nothing fancy, just family and friends and say a big pot of chili and some good conversation. I can't do it often because of lack of energy, but once or twice a year is good

We never had party-parties. But my place is where all my friends would be day and night. Every weekend id have someone here for sleep overs. My brothers friends would come over here and there too. Now, no sleepovers besides with the bf and nieces and nephews. And I dont go to others parties either. Or even to their homes to hang.. besides one cousins here and there for the two kids.
