We’ve all had those weeks (or sometimes months) where we are just buried. Buried at work. Buried at home. And it seems like that is when other things start to go wrong too. Kids waking up from bad dreams. Or little Angel Girls getting up even earlier than usual. Well, the past couple of weeks have been my turn. I’m buried at work and have so much on my agenda at home. Angel Girl’s birthday is on the 31st (of October, yes. We’ve got a Halloween girl) and I’m hosting a Fairy Party for her. At our house. What was I thinking?? First was the research of what to do for a Fairy Party. Then the race was on to gather all the things needed for the Fairy crafts. eVites to go out. Oh, and with it being Halloween, there was the all day Carnival at the kids’ school. 48 treat bags of Kettle Corn later . . . My office is also hosting a Halloween Potluck. Bundt cake for that. Friends coming over on Halloween for trick-or-treating. The Hubs is trying to finish the doorway we’re arching before the party on Saturday. The dinner with friends and family after Angel Girl’s party. Wwoooo. I’ll be so ready for Sunday and the chance to put my feet up and recover. Then to start getting ready for my favorite day of the year: Thanksgiving!
