Weekend Open Thread

February 9, 2013

It’s the weekend, y’all! And we’re having ourselves a 3rd birthday party today.

I might have gone a little overboard. There will be cake. And a piñata. And a catered barbeque dinner. And a churro machine. And a trackless train.

Did I mention cake?  😛

I guess I’ve just been feeling like life is short, so when you can, live it up. It also hit me that this is very likely the last 3rd birthday party I will ever throw, as I’m still coming to grips with the no more babies thing. Plus, this is the first year that DS really gets the birthday concept. He chose the theme and has been talking nonstop about the cake and the candles and the bounce house and the presents. We’re all pretty excited, and can use some joy after all the trials and tribulations we’ve endured lately.

And: after two weeks, my Bell’s Palsy seems to be improving! Still can’t close my left eye completely and don’t have great control over the left side of my mouth, but my smile is much improved and the headaches are finally gone. I feel like partying a little.

What are you up to this weekend? Chat away!
