Today's the day!

No, not the day when my creativity returns, it's our annual SUMMER BASH!

Yeah, I think we're pretty much ready. The food is bought and prepared, the beverages are chilling, AG will be here to "inject" the turkey in preparation for it's boiling oil bath, what, you've never had deep fried turkey?! Oh you must try it! CP has promised his famous Northern Pike nuggets. Games and diversions of all sorts are ready to go, mostly.

And K1 is obsessing. That is the true indicator that we are nearly there. It's not even 7am and he is vacuuming the pool for the second time. He is worrying we that we haven't mowed the lawn (criminy, we've had 12 days without rain all summer!), he asks me for the 4th time where I think he should place the next tarp...

I love this man more than words can tell but he can truly drive me crazy over the littlest things. This is a FUN party we have every summer for our friends and I look at it in a rather casual way I guess. I have never been the kind of hostess who color coordinates napkins with tablecloths or plans menus intricately. K1 feels every detail must be scrutinized and re-scrutinized. And it makes me crazy.

I do wish he could relax a bit more before the fun begins. But the good news is, he will eventually settle down. And once the party gets started he will kick back, grab a horse-shoe and revel in the company of friends and have fun. I just hope the rain (and his well placed tarps) hold up.

Let's get this party started!
