My darling husband decided (at the last minute) that he would invite his department over for lunch today. Which would have be completely fine if I had not had 3 things already scheduled for today. So, to accomodate his schedule I cleaned house until 9:00 last night and then cancelled two things today so that I could do last minute prep and bake a chocolate cake for him. Then I, literally, showered, dressed, did make-up and hair in 30 minutes so that I could zip over to the elementary school for E’s Christmas party.
It was CA–RAY–ZEE!!!
There was apparently some confusion over what people were supposed to bring and who was supposed to do what. And there was a mom who thought that she should stand around to observe and boss people around. At one point it may have crossed my mind to strangle her when she kept telling me that her son hadn’t gotten a brownie. Yes, she could have gotten up and gotten him a brownie but apparently she thought I worked there.
