a birthday and a baby shower
so saturday was the first day of my anxiety.
by the time i had my emotional crying outburst, had breakfast, made these buttons and got all of us ready, there was only 25 minutes left until the end of the party. we made it for the last 15 and stayed late to help clean up. at least my kids had the opportunity to run around.

for the second night in a row, i did not prioritize my to do list and woke up sunday more equally as frantic as the morning before. not only had i not put my gifts together but we also had to run out for the groceries to make our potluck contribution AND we were scheduled to look at a house at 11am. the baby shower was at noon. as it turned out, the house walk-through was cancelled and when i arrived between 12:30-1pm at Miranda's loft, i stumbled in with the kids and Andrea (thank you for helping me carry my goods!) to find only two other guests and Miranda who was crying in the middle of her home. i was terrified. pregnant ladies crying can either be REALLY REALLY good or HORRIBLY bad.
it was good. she was emotionally taken aback by some art work that husband Reilly had secretly made just for the occasion!
