Last night I had a party.. It started at 7:30 PM on Satuday November 25. I invited several people I sang with in a group called Encore. It was the top show Choir in my school and even the State :)
I sent out some invites and several responded. some said they couldn't attend but wanted to, while others were enthusiastic about attending and accepted my invitation!
So I started planning for the party. Erik and I began working on home projects around the house 3 weeks ago.. we painted the Master Bathroom (it used to be an UGLY Forrest Green Color Trim and All with cream tiles..the former owners must have been color-blind) we cleaned up the front yard from all the leaves that strated falling and stayed up late doing the laundry and vaccuming the house, shoving stuff into a room no one would look at..as would any one planning a get together at thier home..
So as Saturday happend upon us we put the finishing touches on the food and desserts put out all the air fresheners and wallah a party was ready to start.
I even went out and bought a cute little outfit!
Well 7:30 pm came and Went and then at 9:30 pm after no phone calls or emails... It hit me that one was showing up.
Now, I could get really upset and even depressed about it... I could have the thought that I must not have received the memo that they all got not to come to My Encore Reunion. I could have got down on my self and think I was always the outsider and the odd ball in High school. But I didn't... well maybe for like a second....
I do have to say I was pretty dissapointed. But Hey Now Erik and I get to eat all the leftovers, well the low carb opions. The other stuff I have to through away so we dont cheat and go over our daily carb allowance. Fudge brownies, sourdough bread for the spinach dip, Coke, Dr Pepper, & Sprite ....Well i might just give it away to some one that can use it.
Another good aspect to this no show party is we are left with a sparkely clean house that looks and smells of apple cinnamon. We also decided to take our Christmas picture... my new profile pic is one of the pictures taken. I even stayed up and ordered my Photo Christmas Cards. (Speaking of... Email me your Address if you want to be on my mailing list for a Christmas Card at firstname.lastname@example.org
So Even though i have tons of leftovers I got alot accomplished and motivated my self to finally do some projects I have been meaning to do since March, when we moved in.
In the Future, I think I will plan other parties... but It will be BYOF (Bring your own food) and then I will only plan for enough food that Erik and I can eat!
