Sorry, I've been MIA. It's been quite the hectic week in the Knitter in Progress household. And the next week and a half isn't shaping up any better.
Little Diva's birthday is coming up and she wants a party. SO we have reserved a place for a pool party, sent out the invitations, gotten all the paraphernalia for the gift bags, picked out a cake, and now we just need to wait for the RSVPs. This whole party thing has been really stressful. First getting out the invitations has been a nightmare. She's only allowed to have 15 people at the pool(herself included) so that eliminates a good portion of her class. I've tracked down as many Moms as I could, mailed some others, but I still have one kiddo to track down(you see you cannot and should not pass out invitations at school unless everyone can come--it's only fair--and, of course, everyone's addresses aren't listed in the student directory so that makes tracking down kids/parents I've never met a challenge). Then there is the cost of the whole thing--holy smokes, who knew? And she's only turning 7; I can't wait to see the expense the teen years bring. Oh, and did I mention there is another birthday party in her class the day before her party?
My birthday is the week before hers. Luckily mine isn't so time consuming. The only thing I want from DH and the kiddos is to not have to cook dinner :) I already got my present(which I picked out) and I would like to forget I'm having a birthday at all, truth be known.
I'll miss knitting with my grrls for the next 2 Fridays and I'm hoping we can get together for knitting and dinner after the madness passes :)
All this Little Diva party prep has cut into my knitting, stitching, and workout time. This all leads to a stressed out and cranky mommy. So bear with me until a normal schedule resumes(which is looking like the week of March 5 at this point).
