The party went really well. No rain! Everyone had a great time. We had plenty of food, much alcohol was consumed, and the neighbors didn't call the police, despite the noise and grilling more hamburgers at 1am. Son #1 was still wide awake at 2:30am, much to my surprise. I think he just wanted to prove he could be an "adult." Son #2 begged me to put him to bed at about 12:30am. He is the smart one!
There were a few times on Thursday and Friday I thought I was going to end up on Snapped, but I'm happy to report my husband is still alive and we're still married.
We had a few people who RSVP'd they were coming but didn't show up. I hate that. You would think we would have heard some sort of explanation by now but no, nothing! I think that is beyond rude. And I know my husband is mad/disappointed because one of the offenders is a good friend.
I am officially all partied out. After hosting my sister's birthday party in late April, then Mother's Day, and now The Event, I'll be perfectly happy to not host a party again until Son #2's birthday in October.
