Just pick up and move to the next party…

Fun has been had. Mess has been cleaned up and made. Here are a few shots of the house pre-pretty dress store/ mad men surprise birthday party. The pirate ship I was building in the dining room needed to be dismantled to use the pieces to make the dressing room.

These are remnants of the papier mâché dragon figure head on the counter.

Here are the 60s hors d’oeuvres 75 minutes later.

The belief that it will all come together remains strong. Maybe it is from my theatrical “the show must go on” attitude. I also know that if I focus for 15 minutes and clean those dishes, tidy to the counter, adding papers to the piles beside the counter, it will all be okay. I trust my friends will help put the beer on the fridge and the pickles on the plates when they arrive. They will not care if there is a half built balloon dragon in the stairway. Hey they got to leave their houses in whatever state it was to come mess up my house! Could have cleaned the house and kept it clean, but last night was a lot of fun. It was worth it!
