Let The Games Begin

What a week this has been!!! I have been so stressed at work. I think there was only one day this week that I actually made it home before dark. On top of that, I've been running wild trying to get everything together for my sister's baby shower, which is tomorrow!! I've still got some last minute stuff to get, but it's all shaping up!! I made all the favors, bought and wrapped all the game prizes, hand-made some games for us to play, and tonight, I get to clean my entire house, cook all the food and finish getting the games in order. Then, in the morning, I have to go get the balloons and the cake; take the dogs to a friend's house to watch during the shower; and decorate the entire house. I'm expecting about 15-20 people, so it should be pretty intense. I always take hosting things very seriously - maybe too much!!! I just want it to be perfect for her.
After the shower, I'm supposed to head out with some friends for karaoke. I don't really feel up to it, since I've been running non-stop all week. But, I feel bad because I've turned them down about three times in the last week and a half.
Sunday, I've been invited to Churchill Downs for the races with my friend, Robyn. It's some kind of promotional thing that she got tickets to. We get to ride around in a limo and watch the races from a luxury box!! Then, it's off to Captain's Quarters - which is a nice restaraunt/bar on the River. Dad's band is playing, so it should be the perfect end to the day.
Wait a minute!!! Is there any time in there for me to REST this weekend???
I didn't think so.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Take a nap and relax for me, OK???

Wow, that is an intense weekend. I say forget the Karaoke and sleep or sleep then head out later.

Cheers,

Scott

Oh my, you are busy this weekend!
We were supposed to have a ho-hum weekend ourselves, but it turned out that I ended up with 7 different jobs myself.... one is a church group of 160 people.
I would have loved to help you otherwise.... but I know you will do an extra fabulous job, because the prep sounds like you have it all coordinated well.

We still have to figure out a shower for citysoul... whenever you get some time, and whenever I can get a minute off. Mothers Day has been my only day off from work this month so far.

Take care, and have a wonderful weekend... and somewhere in there, get some rest!

Sounds like a busy but fun weekend! Little Miss spent the night at a friend's place last night and is again tonight, so we are going to a b-day party - authentic Mexican food and drinks, so I can't complain. After that, I would like to check out my friend's band since I haven't seen them for so long. Hope the shower went well!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
