Well, I am home. Tired. Got there at 2:00 and now 3 hours later with oodles of little ones running around in and out of kiddie pools, grown up guys talking about the latest Patriot's firing, ladies taking sides on the Paula Dean fiasco, in and out on the deck and back inside, I filled a little container with some baked ziti and mtballs, grabbed a couple of my hermits (one of which I dropped in the middle of the street - well I dropped both in the middle of the street, but one stayed wrapped in a napkin so it made it home with me!) Had my son go down their steep stairs ahead of me, stairs are not my best venture. I'm so glad to pull back in my driveway. Not a party girl any more.
We had to wait until the cake came out to find the new baby's name - I, of course, can't tell you, but I like the nickname version of it. Gifts weren't opened because they were all the same, what she asked for, diapers and wipes, so neither were any cards. I know later tonight when they read it they will be pleased with the poem. She swears these kids names are Irish as can be - but I never heard either one of them. they are giving this baby 4 names however, his first, then his middle will be both her grandfathers' names, (his great grandfathers), both of whom are dead.
I wouldn't call you and DH slow and unmotivated today, SAW, my gosh, that was quite a trip you took yesterday. You need to recoup.
Miscricket, what a great thing for your DH and DS to do for you. And you're right, family and close friends are the best group to have around for a celebration.
My Fla friend was tellling me she has seen a groundhog all around her neighborhood. We were both wondering what they eat - pretty much anything green, don't they? So far hasn't bothered any of her many flowering plants.
Kargiver, wondered where you were yesterday, but figured you were busy working around the place with DH. Sorry you are still have stove problems. Hope a quick resolution was decided on.
OK, going to get into something loose and relax in my nice QUIET house - Cheerio really isn't very noisy - lol
