The Party is Over
The party is over. And it was a success!
I hate putting together birthday parties. This year I held it at our rec center, in a room off the pool. Good idea. The boys (and girls!) ate cake and then splashed around, some for hours. What was left of the party migrated to our house, and finally broke up around 10 pm.
That's a party.
Not only that, but everyone who was invited came, except for one family who I knew was having a very busy weekend. I think we had ... 11 guests, plus our four (for a joint Connor/Aidan party). For a socially-challenged and party-phobic mom, that is not bad at all.
I'm so glad it's over.
Most importantly, the boys were happy. More than happy. They beamed the entire day. Success!
Lachlan is getting a quiet cake at our house for his birthday (gulp) in ten days. Thank goodness that a cake will thrill him to pieces.
We packed 22 boxes today. I had forgotten what a tiring, dreary pain it is to pack. Twenty-two down ... 500 to go?

500? Okay... if you say so...
Ok, it's not really going to be more than 500. It's just going to FEEL like more than that by the time you're done. I think somewhere around box 30 is where I start begging Zorak to let me burn ALL the furniture, most of the clothing, and let's live on beanbags and wicker for the rest of our lives! (He's never gone for it. Through fourteen moves in ten years, he has never once even considered it. The man has fortitude of pure iron, I swear.)
Happy packing! I'm glad the party went well. That's always such a good feeling.
