Things have been a little crazy around here and the blog (and blog visiting) has gone by the wayside. My birthday was last week and Jason took me away for a night, our 16 year anniversary is Friday, and Gage is turning 4 on Saunday! This is his first year having a friend party and like a newbie I worried about renting a place and having no kids show up. sigh. So, I foolishly decided to have it at our house. Then they ripped off our deck and won’t put it back on until someone else comes and takes a look at something. Next Wednesday. Ok, no deck, it’ll be chilly no big deal (except for the hideous looking cavernous space right outside the biggest door/window in the house). Remember how I was worried no one would show up? We’re up to 11 kid rsvps plus parents. That’s 11 3-5 year olds to entertain for 2 hours. Plus I did invite a few other people who work with Gage. Bah! Anyway, as I sit typing this I am really thinking about how much needs to get done before Sunday. But I do love a party 🙂
I need to get a few things off my to-do list.
I promised a prize for a quiz a few weeks ago and I have a winner. Both Hannah and Nise got perfect scores (no surprise there!) and Gage drew a name….Hannah! There’s no photo evidence because I’m having technical difficulties (of course!). I will be mailing off her surprise gift from the Library of Congress soon (soon means after the party).
I made a quiz this morning, but it’s for Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon this weekend. You still have time to sign-up! My quiz will be hour 11 (6pm EST) if you want to come back and take a look.
You may see me around this week here or elsewhere on the blogs but if not don’t take it personally. It’s been a long time since we had a party here and I’m probably just freaking out 🙂
