I am seriously sick of birthdays. I spent in the area of 700 dollars on Darius this year. Ouch.
I posted pictures from the party on Flickr. I'm disappointed I didn't have more energy than I did.
I should've gotten myself some coffee first thing in the morning.
As it was...we had a feast. Three fruit platters with watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, peaches, nectarines and oranges. Two veggie platters with baby carrots, cucumber, green pepper, yellow pepper, and celery. Pasta salad, a pickle platter, cheese and cracker platter with a cheese ball on the side, Doritos, Sun Chips, Wavy Lays, Pretzels, corn dogs, tater tots, and Calico Beans (thanks to Rhonda for that). For drinks I decided against pop because I didn't want the wrong people guzzling it down, so I opted for juices....White Grape, Fruit Punch, V8 Splash in mango peach flavor, Cranberry, Orange and Apple, plus a case of bottled water (because our tap water isn't all that tasty, I don't mind if we drink it, but not our guests)
I didn't have the brian power to do the cake on my own, so I waited until Chance's co-worker and his wife arrived and enlisted her help to do it.
All-in-all, we had a terrific party where I believe everyone enjoyed themselves. I was ready for bed at 9, but as it goes I didn't actually get there until 11. I wish I would've made myself some coffee...but oh well. I'm grateful so many people offered to help out when they did.
I'm wondering what was bothering Chance, as he was grumpy for the most part to where I didn't really communicate with him outside of giving orders on what needed to be done. Wish it could have been different, but as I didn't want to be his pinata (or vice versa), I decided it was best for everyone if I just left it alone.
Darius had a fantastic time, and if you take a peek at the pictures on Flickr, you can see his smiles. I wish I would've taken more pictures...but oh well. I don't believe I was the only one there with a camera.
I'm seriously sick of birthday parties, and am glad it'll be a while before I even have to think of another one.
Back to the daily grind I suppose, as I've been putting off anything resembling a daily schedule for about 4-5 days now...I guess we took our Spring Break after all.
Hospice training tonight. I still need to do the reading for it.
