I just KNOW you're dying to hear about my weekend.
My life is SO exciting like that!
Remember last Friday when I said how badly I needed rest and recuperation time?
Well, that didn't happen.
In fact, the whole weekend ended up being a blur of … blurriness.
My son and his girlfriend went to their homecoming football game Friday night.
The next day …
They went to their homecoming dance.
First love is very cute.
From a parent's perspective all the activities meant nonstop a lot of driving around all weekend. There was also the standard parent photo opp which seemed to go on for hours.
The next day I got an email from some of the kids saying, "You are a phenominal [sic] photographer!"
It made me smile.
And then, there was the After Party.
(For those of you who are new to life with teens, the After Party is what happens after the big dances.)
The After Party was at our house.
I'm not quite sure how I got suckered into the After Party, but I guess I should be glad my son and his friends were at our house where I could keep an eye on them.
It was rainy and drizzly on Sunday.
I ended up spending the afternoon hosting a teen birthday party for someone who is not my teen. No, I didn't volunteer to host it … people just started showing up and it turned into another teen party.
Not a chance …
But I did make soup while my house was filled with chaos and teenagers.
I was excited, because it was an excuse to use my immersion blender. I haven't needed to use it for a few months.
(We all know how much I like vibrating, whirling toys, right?)
I may have accidentally spilled a bottle of little extra cayenne in by accident.
Pass the water please …
Always measure out your spices over the sink instead of over the pot in case you spill.
The End ….
