Well, that's over...


And I am glad. I tried not to think about it being "that" day on Saturday and was fairly successful. Although I spent the whole day in my pajamas-telling myself it was because my tooth (or lack of) hurt and not because of anything else. James and I spent some time crying and then drifted into Sunday morning.


No, the house has far, far to go before I allow anyone in on Saturday. Yes, I have a tent and tables and chairs. Even food is coming. So a party is looking like it will happen with or without me. It has been a struggle to plan while having such a rough time. I can't believe I've got 1 day to get the trash out of the house (garbage pickup is tomorrow) and 5 days to make the house look like it is capable of having people live in it. Wish me luck.


And...just for Tessie... The cutest of kids always mess up great photo opportunities, as witnessed in the picture of my nephew here.

Congratulations to you girl! I'm proud of you and I know you'll git-r-done before the party. I think it's wonderful you have such a big event to focus on at this time!

Karma? ((Hugs))

Glad to hear you made it through the day. The build up to it is often worse than the actual day for me.

And, no one will care how your house looks on the day of the party! They will just want to come to a party and have a good time.

Hon, FIVE days is a lifetime when all you really need to do is vacuum and make sure the bathroom is/are clean! Trust me, there is nothing else that will matter.

And...not sure if you've noticed it or not...but, you're doing it. It's not easy, but you're doing it all.

We knew you could.

Planning a party is tough even when you're not having a rough time, so you get double kudos for making it all work!
Thinking good thoughts for you!

Hugs and thoughts are with you. And that is a great pic!

Laura, I missed a few days here and apparently missed a pretty nasty commenter. Just wanted to tell you that I think there are a lot of us out here (me included) that truly FEEL for you. We truly CARE. Because we know that horrible things happen to regular people. Perhaps because we've been somewhere horrible at one point too.

Anyway, I hope you can enjoy the party a little bit. Celebrate with Nik.
