The Calm After the Storm

It was a flurry of activity this weekend...the movies, cupcake making and decorating, dinosaur excursion, putting together 24 goody bags, present opening and shrieks of laughter and excitement...  I have been in constant 'go, go, go!' mode since Thursday.

Whew!

I'm tired.

I'm looking forward to today being the calm after the storm.

Cleaning up the flurry of activity, getting things organized, cleaning the house, doing the laundry that was left unattended this weekend...

Oh, wait.

That doesn't sound so calm.

But it won't be at the excessive speed of motion the other things were, so that in itself is more of a calming factor.

Princess Nagger said she had the best Birthday of her whole life!   Her favorite part was going to the Dinosaur Museum yesterday - she had so much fun playing with Martha and Andrea's kids.  It was great fun to meet some cool bloggy friends in real life.

Thanks so much Martha and Andrea - and your awesome kids - for helping make Princess Nagger's birthday extra special - it made my day extra special too!  Now I don't have to be jealous of other bloggers who have a chance to meet some of their favorite bloggers in person, because I got to do just that! 

Thank you to everyone who wished Princess Nagger a Happy Birthday yesterday - she read all the comments and was tickled pink!  Wait - tickled purple, since that's her favorite color.  You all helped make her day extra special, too!

More to come when the calm has increased in stature...

I'm so glad PN had the bestest birthday ever - those dinosaur excursions can make or break a good birthday party, you know.

If it's any consolation, "calm" has taken a vacation at our house, too, and probably won't be back until after Thanksgiving. At least it will be fun!
