Today was the big day. After months of planning, we hosted a party for my son’s 2nd birthday. My wife’s research and planning set the stage for a good time for the kids and their parents, and People seemed to enjoy it.
The success in no small thing. We lost power the night before for a bit, which not only required our doing prep in the dark but also spiked our anxieties about possible loss of food. Plus, the pizza restaurant thought our 10-pie order was for 5/20 , not 5/19, so we had a brief panic on that front too. Fortunately, everything was still chilled in the fridge when the power returned on Friday, so our tangible losses were minimal. And the pizza not only arrived on time but was delicious. It could have been much worse. Of course, our sleep was thrown into disarray, too, which led to both my wife’s and my operating under a certain level of exhaustion. Regardless of the issues, the party went well, and we are grateful for that.
