Party Day

Just hours to go, and the place is in chaos. Everything has a place and purpose, but nothing is there yet nor doing it yet. The groceries just arrived. I think I'm lacking juice. I could have sworn I intended to buy 3 orange juices but seem to have only one. And I still have to push aside the weights in the "fitness room" for party-goer overflow. Hopefully, any way.

I think I've thought of everything... for the party. It's about all I've been thinking about for days now. So is it any surprise, that aside from cheese and crackers I have no food to eat? Peanut butter and jam sammies for lunch. At least until the pizza place opens. And coffee, of course. I stopped at Starbucks last week and bought a selection of beans.

But now, there's a selection of coffee grindings sitting around the grinder. That and so much more needs to be attended to. Like vacuuming. The whole cleaning process started days ago with the vacuum cleaner. And today it will end with it. Everything has been moved and dusted and such, such that now it's time to clean the floor again.

There will be pictures afterwards. For now, the recycling must go out, it's using half-a-guest worth of space. Then, a thousand other tasks to prepare before my nice Saturday night at home. ;-)

I hope this party is 5x worth more than all the work you put into it -- that'll make it the party of the century!

I can't wait.... but you'll probably have to clean again tomorrow after entertaining all night :-) I'll do my best to keep everything clean, and I won't ask for juice.......... CU in a few hours !!!!!

Quilly, in terms of man-hours it's a great investment... if I can spend 20 hours, and thus 30 people (50) spend 5 good hours, that's a huge profit!

Irene, I'm just going to get juice from the gas station next store. Maakie. As for "probably" cleaning again tomorrow? LOL! Certainly I'll be cleaning tomorrow. See you tonight!

Hey, anyone checking out the computer? Hi to all the blogging folks at THE PARTY. (Kryte, Irene, hope you are having a 10 on the fun meter.) Party on, Morgan! It's only a quarter to three. NO CLEANING the day after a big party. Relax!!!

Love.....Mom

Can you turn it down a notch? It's time to sleep here on the West Coast of the United States.

Mom, due to the crust of mud that covered every inch of floor, cleaning yesterday was required. I got the table surfaces first, then finished mopping the floors at 10:30pm.

Sorry Doug, you could hear the laughter and fun from there, eh?

Sorry I didn't see this earlier: thank you so much J.D. for your greetings ! The computer was on saturday night, but not on the blog site, it was doing its duty as a jukebox :-) But I sure had a great time !!! And no, I didn't even have the wodka..... As I said in an other comment: I've never seen so many nationalities in one room, it was really special, a bit like being on this blog :-) :-)
