I'm panting and sweating and running around like a crazy lady but I have to blog. It's my turn and I missed last time because I was at a family reunion. So today I helped put on a wedding shower this morning, getting to the church at 7:45 am and cooking for two hours about five incredible recipes that I never would have made for my own family but must have come right off a show with Martha Stewart.
With the napkins folded and the garnishes shining, the women arrived and we welcomed and laughed and ate and gave advice and ate some more. It was great. When it was over, my friend had to rush out because she had a friend that was having a baby so I was stuck cleaning up more than I thought. You should have seen me rushing around trying to get out of there so I could be home for my nine year old's birthday.
I walked in as everybody was getting antsy. My eleven year old daughter grabbed the presents and we ran in the back room and wrapped them with Christmas paper because it was the only wrapping paper we could find. Then we started loading kids in the car when I suddenly remembered it was my turn to blog so here I am tapping like crazy on the computer, making everyone frustrated.
Tonight I leave the party early to go on a Relief Society retreat with the women in my new ward that I don't really know at all. AHHH! Too much of a good thing but so much better than not enough. Don't you think?
