Today is my youngest daughter’s birthday party. It’s gonna be me and 9, 12 year olds (pray for me)! Every year I say, "Never again!" and yet….
I keep it simple. I’m taking them to the YMCA. There’s a great pool, and lots of room for them to wear themselves out (thank heaven).
IF I lived in a perfect world, I would sit on a nice lounge chair, with a book and ear plugs for the 4 plus hours we’ll be there. Unfortunately I can’t use the ear plugs. lol
Little Caesar’s Pizza, cupcakes,(I have a cupcake pan that bakes 24 at a time) and juice pouches will round out the evening. They should all go home exhausted (their parents can send me thank you notes or I accept cash!)
I’ve already dealt with the ‘politics’ of the ride over. It seems that some people don’t want to sit next to other people, and visa versa. I’ve told them all if they give me any trouble, then I will guarantee that on the ride home they sit next to that person! (This works especially well with the boys) (Girls have cooties ya know)
My root canal is finished, and no one told me it was going to hurt for such a long time after. The dentist put me on antibiotics and vicodin… (why didn’t anyone tell me how wonderful vicodin is?)
Bob (RUSerious) is home from the hospital, he said he would try and blog this weekend. He’s using a cane, but seems to be doing really well.
I’m off to frost cupcakes, and find my daughter’s swimming suit. I hope you are all having a great weekend. I know I will, after today! LOL BIG HUGS, Steph
