Bone Tired

Oh my. I had a weekend. I don't think I've been this tired for a long time.

On Saturday I had the pleasure of videotaping a wedding for the brother of a friend, and it was so much fun. It was the first wedding I've taped, and it was amazing. The only problem is that the reception was so fun I wish I could have been there dancing instead of taping all the people having so much fun.

That, and the fact that my right arm was so tired after ten hours of holding a large video camera that it kind of wants to fall off. I can't wait to go back and look at all the footage.

Then Sunday was Sam's birthday party, which was all kinds of fun, but involved me leading 18 kids in a sports-themed party, meaning I got to run them through obstacle courses and relay races.

AND I sent each kid home with a metal whistle in their goody bags, which makes me the best mom ever, but the very worst friend. It was terrifically loud for the last five minutes of the party, when the kids found the whistles. I'm laying down bets on how many of the parents have "lost" the whistles by now.

I have all kinds of things to write about, including the cardinal that has been flying into my mom's window over and over for nearly a week now, but it's 8:49 p.m. on Sunday and I'm going to bed.


  1. "Obstacle courses and relay races" is enough for me. You are officially mother of the year. And I can't wait to hear about the bird. That's happened to me before. Having a bird in your house is kind of terrifying.

  2. oooooh! Party! Tell us more.

    After you have slept for a week that is.

  3. A whistle? You really are that mom!

  4. We had a bird that flew into our bedroom window repeatedly during the spring and fall for a couple of years now. Knock on wood, she hasn't returned yet this fall.

  5. That IS a busy weekend but I'm still sitting here laughing about the bird hitting the window. LOL

    Happy Bday to Sam!!!

  6. Hope Sam had a great birthday party!
