Sunday Wrap Up

Yesterday was a long, fun day. We had a birthday party with 11 6 year old boys. What fun! We played soccer in the front yard, all sorts of stuff in the basement, and had pizza and cake. I am finally putting moms, kids, faces, etc. all together. We had friends from preschool, the old neighborhood, soccer, and the new neighborhood/school.

So I spent the morning getting ready for the party, the first part of the afternoon having the party, and the middle part of the afternoon cleaning up.

Then... I got to have a girls' night out. I went to dinner with 12 delightful women and then we went to see "Menopause, The Musical". What a hoot! First of all, dinner was so much fun. All the women were PTA types, with local council, district, and state officers all represented. We had a couple of teachers there. And everyone was a mom. I was the youngest by about5 or so years. The conversation was lively, witty, and very interesting.

The show was hysterical. I haven't laughed that hard in years. And I really don't think it was the two cosmos I had at dinner. The show was just that funny. The actresses were incredible. It really is great. If you have a chance, you should go see it.

So this morning we are taking it easy. We have one jacket to return from the party. My husband is supposed to play tennis, but it is supposed to start raining about an hour before he is supposed to start. I think we will just lounge around and play with birthday presents today.

One last note, the blocks for the children's quilts were mailed out Friday, so they should be arriving at the next piecers' houses early this week.

I'm impressed with your energy! After a birthday party for a 6-year-old, to still have energy to go out that night! Sounds like a great day, Jules!

Sounds like a fun party. We had the in-law's and my Dad over for Sunday lunch yesterday and then just watched movies and took it easy. And DH cooked it all!
