My Little Pony Party, and the laundry. Sort of.
First, the laundry. Sort of. I need to unburden myself a little so that I can get back to reality. Or something.
I have become an instagram junkie! LOL
I finally put up the valentine decorations. I am still waiting on one box for the swap to arrive, then those boxes will go back out. There is no way I can do it on Wednesday though, so it might be Thursday or Friday. :(
Someone robbed our cars this weekend. They didn't steal much, petty crap really, but they left behind something of value of THEIR OWN while doing it. Dumb asses.
Someone I really liked died over the Christmas break. I haven't mentioned it because well, I don't know. She worked at one of my favorite thrift stores. I met her when Jack was about three or so. She was always totally into Jack. She taught him to make film canister rockets and build atoms and so much more. But more importantly, she got ME. She was the driving force for me to get Jack advanced in school this past year. Her kindness and encouragement made me see that Jack really could do it. I am so sad that I saw her one day and a week later she was gone. :/
The place where I fell has decided they have no liability in the issue. I debated legal action, because honestly, it was deadly dangerous on that floor, but have decided to just fix my face and get on with it*. I shattered my front tooth when I fell which has required thousands of dollars of dental bills and repairs and endless hours and visits to dentists. It was painful and shocking and horrifying and really emotionally upsetting. So, my own tooth is gone now and I am going on Wednesday to get a new crown.
To that end - we finally had Sam's birthday party this weekend.
Three girls came from Sammi's preschool. This was her very first friend party! And 4 4 year old girls was the perfect number of friends. Not crazy or wild and plenty of time to do each activity with care.
We did pony decorating, a rainbow dash race (with pom poms and straws since it's winter), the rarity's jewel hunt, a tattoo station, and pin the cutie mark on Pinkie Pie.
I started at 10 am. An odd time, but the other parents actually said thank you for choosing that time. Turns out I liked it too. The whole day wasn't spent on trying to keep the house clean, there is time for a nap in the afternoon, and the whole morning isn't spent asking over and over when they are coming. Kids get up early anyway!
All in all a total success.
*It super sucks that this happened on Sam' birthday. I already have a bad association with Grant's birthday and now this! Argh.
