It’s here again. Superficial Saturday (well now it’s Sunday but pretend I actually finished this last night). And I’m thrilled because I’m tired and cranky and need to let off a little steam. What better way than to talk about fluffy nonsense? This will be a short one (thank god after yesterday’s overdone, overwritten, run on, rambling post! But hey, I was lost in the moment!).
I don’t need to use many words to get across what would make me (superficially) happy today. I’ll just show you this.
I’m having 25 people over to my house this afternoon. Yes, you read that correctly. Twenty-five. That would be fourteen kids and eleven adults. Where they are all going to go is beyond me. But, you see, that, that house, and that YARD, would help.
And then of course, it brings me back to last week’s request which I’m still waiting anxiously for:
Because if you know me, you know I won’t be cleaning a house that size.
And for the party. I’d like this:
Because I’m not really in the mood to entertain. Because as you recall, I’ve been sick. For 3 weeks. And I’m not quite feeling my normal “entertainer” self.
I might actually go out and try to find a pair of these:
These would help me not hear the chaos that inevitably 13 kids will create in my too small for 13 kids house.
I’m also really hoping none of my guests come wearing one of these:
Christmas sweater. They’ll get a serious eye roll from me if they do. The bow tie is a little over the top too… it’s a barbeque for godsakes… t-shirts will do. And if someone does feel the need to wear a Christmas sweater before Thanksgiving, I really hope it won’t be this tight. Form fitted Christmas sweater with bow tie is a Really. Bad. Look. in my fashion book.
So wish me luck. Think of me this afternoon. And know that I’ll be trying out my list of the best ways to say “Goodbye!” when I’m ready for everyone to leave.
