Well, here I am, almost 6:00 p.m. and they just left. Came about 2-2:30, and we had a wonderful time. So much laughter. It was an easy day for me too, because I just put everything out on the buffet table, including take-home-containers, and everyone helped themselves.
My son found a wooden piano online for pumpkin, and oh my gosh, how he loved that. Banged on the keys and then would pound on the top. G.T. kidded that he would make him a sequined cape, reminiscent of Liberace! I told my son, drums next year! Altho, if we're kind, no drums, because we learned today that pumpkin's mom who was told she had a small window of time to conceive pumpkin, is now pregnant and expecting another little boy the end of July. We're all helping her with our ideas of nice Irish names! As she admitted tho, she doesn't go for the usual names, likes something different. My gift was a beautifully framed 2 picture holder of him, and for his Uncle who bought him the Irish knit cap, a beautiful large picture, head only, of him wearing the cap. He looks just like a little Irish street boy.
Anyway, we all had a wonderful time, with plenty of food, and every one saying what a good time we had.
Princess, good luck going back to work. Just don't push yourself. 20 hours is still a lot, and you've got to ease back into it. Hope the family works out for Tillie. It's a tough decision to make, too bad they weren't already settled in their new home. Are there others you're scheduled to interview?
Sons did up what dishes weren't plastic, so literally, there's nothing for me to do tonight, but sit back, have glass of wine, and relax. Hope you all had a good day too.
