Party post mortem post
Heh heh. That title just tickled me in its repetitive redundancy.
We stayed out late last night with our friends playing Mexican Train Dominoes and splitting a bottle of champagne 7 ways. We did already have lots of delicious food and wine and I managed to flip a flute onto the tile floor and shatter it. Luckily it was one of those 8 for $10 kind of glasses and everyone was very nice about it. I ended the evening flat on my back on the floor trying to put my very high heels on (and failing). Legs up in the air, laughing hysterically. I was wearing jeans, so at least I wasn't flashing any skin, just a loss of dignity. And it was photographed. Yikes. Okay, it was funny and something I would do sober.
We woke up early this morning and finished cleaning the house and getting ready for our party. People started trickling in a little after 1 and then started pouring in. We had a house full of people and we were trying to put out all the fruit and make the eggs and Ryan made lemon madeleines and coffee and... it was a HIT! Everybody seemed to like the food and enjoyed each other. We really have some great friends. The last folks left before 7 and less than an hour later we were resting in our immaculate house (barring the 3rd floor).
Life is good. I have some resolutions this year regarding my health: physical and mental. Otherwise, it's business as usual. Try to be a better person and just enjoy life as it comes. Oh, and maybe get knocked up this summer. ;)
