I pulled my clipboard out yesterday to put into action. Which only means one thing: there's little sleep on my horizon. It's all fine, though...it's a natural result of my procrastination (I do that, remember). And by the way, does anyone know where March went? Just wondering.
First up: Easter! And a gift of spring linen pants for each of my little ones. Does that sound like a cruel gift? Clearly, you do not know my children. Some new clothes, and a couple of earth balls, and they'll be thrilled. Though I'm sure Grammie will oblige them with a few sneaks of candy (but where, oh, where is that bunny going to put things?). It will be a very mellow day of cousins and aunts and celebrating spring (that's funny). But first, I need to stop eating the earth balls. And then, those pants need to be made.
Next up will be the hand delivering of these invitations to Ezra's birthday party. Oh, I am so so so in love with his drawing right now. The drawings are all pirates, but the theme of the party? It's mustard, his favorite food. No really. The kid's a hoot. We'll have a 'mustard bar' with lots of different mustards (oh, he's SO excited about this), and I'm planning on making soft pretzels and veggie kabobs (for honey mustard), but I'm stalled out on ideas after that. I'd love any ideas for mustard-dipping foods! (To Ez, this seriously would be everything, but I'm thinking of us other folk).
And the hand delivering part? Hmn...well, it's the only way they'll get there in time for the party....three days from now. Yes, three days from now. All invitees have been forewarned of the date. But still. The point is that if I'm this behind on the invitations, you might guess how behind I am on the rest of the birthday festivities. So, um, yeah, I'd better get back to work!
See you next week! Have a wonderful weekend!
