Life Overbooked!!

Well, obviously no WWC this week. Oh, I clicked some pics but no time to deal with resizing, uploading, etc. (I know, it just takes a few clicks but I am lucky to click this away!) So, it's May and that means "May Madness!" May is always overbooked. Last month of school, last month of T-ball games and practices, daughter's birthday, Kindergarten graduation, end of year class parties, and I also have a lot of end of year activities with my community service group. We sponsor a Terrific Kids program at an elementary school in the "big town". So, assemblies, ice cream socials, etc. on top of my own kids school stuff. This week I was doing some "Honey dos" in preparation for my daughter's 5th birthday party this Saturday. As y'all may recall, I like to do "birthday's" really special for the kiddos. If you don't recall, you can check it out here: So, this week I stained and varnished the baseboards for the play room (to be the the "Salon" at the party). Yesterday, I sanded the crap out of the front door trim that I was notified that "I" was supposed to stain (several months after the bare wood had been left exposed to the various elements of our weather). I then stained it all and it actually looks "fabulous," if I do say so myself. Anyhoo, as my sweet Tinkerbell is turning the big "5," [an important childhood milestone] we are having a "Tea Party" complete with china tea cups, saucers and tea pots. We will also be pampered with manicures and pedicures! Whhhoooo, classy, huh? We'll be doin' it all at our house though as I work on a budget. [smiley-wink!] Matter O'fact? I'm supposed to be making the Petti-fours right now. But, bein' crafty I'm gonna' cheat a little. Still, I have to make about 12 individual sized cakes iced with a basket weave. [FYI? I've never done a basket weave. :-0] So, I'll be sparse around bloggie world a little longer. But, I WILL upload lots of pics from the party! And, come end of May? I'm having a bloggie party at my place!! I'm going to commandeer the computer room, the cable, and lock myself in with some snackies and some Shiner Bock -- and let the bloggie party begin!!! All y'all bloggie buds are invited! Happy May, Happy Thursday and Happy Bloggin'!!!

Jay's right, you know how to have a good time.
(btw, I know, your box is on the slow boat to Texas. Probably not even a boat, maybe just an old mule and a cart)

gr hey, Mules are cheap to feed. That form of shipment is just fine by me ;)
