Esther's party was Sunday and the kids all seemed to have fun. I'm completely out of my element when it comes to parties--especially throwing one. I was a nervous wreck for most of the week, almost dreading it. But it all went pretty smoothly--the cake turned out okay, Esther was great (not a completely overstimulated mess like I feared), no one barfed or needed a trip to the ER, and no one was overly bored--SUCCESS!
On another note, Spring is waddling in like some tawdry old slut--there's a pancake-make up smear of green over her craggy features, and all the imperfections of winter are glaringly apparent. It's supposed to snow Friday, so that just adds to the trainwreck. And I've been so looking forward to Spring--I wish she'd quit dragging her ass.
