Party Today....

After a long wait, because of the lice, Esther's party is today. Thank God. I would've never been ready 2 weeks ago. I am still not ready.

I have to remember they are 5 year olds - I could put on a princess movie and give them Target cake and a plastic toy, and they would be happy. My house doesn't have to be perfectly clean.

I went to bed at 1 and am up at 4 and my house is a disaster. Jed stayed up past one assembling a castle for our living room.

I was up late trying to salvage some baking. I am a really decent baker - but spent 6 hours yesterday yelling at my kids to give me space so I could bake, and then I threw it all away. Nothing turned out. My kids were home from school create chaos while I futilely tried to clean and fold the pile of laundry on the couch. Then 2 party guests cancelled. I was in tears, and had a Matilda Jane show to do - and sat here in my pony tail, no make-up, no bra, covered in flour and wondered if the movie/Target cake thing was a great idea for tomorrow and if I could cancel my show.

In the heat of my despair, peace came in the form of a phone call. With a way too generous offer and a friendly voice. Her timing was perfect and was just what I needed to take a moment for myself and pull myself together and get to my show - giving me some separation from my home and family and my kitchen.

Today is a new day and I am ready for the perfect(or even not so perfect) Princess Tea Party for Queen Esther.

Come on over, Kristi is making the cake, so you know it will be good.

Oh, how wonderful! Your friend Kristi ROCKS. It's so great to have such awesome friends. Have a wonderful day, dear!

Everything will be gorgeous! I'm so glad you have a Kristi in your life - I have one too (and giggling here because her name IS Kristi!) and I know that feeling, someone coming to rescue you, the one who never needs rescuing!

Jess said...

Hey, T! If you hear of anyone with a size 8 Wendy dress, can you let me know! A friend of mine would love one, knows they are all sold out, and thought maybe there could be one floating around a board somewhere! LOL

Let me know if you hear of one!

I KNEW the Princess in Shining Armor that saved the party was going to be Kristi!!! She's the bestest BFF evvvah! If that hats are any indication of the party, it was awesome.

I hear you. The night before Xander's Olympic party (awesome, but never blogged about) we almost decided to go bowling instead.
