Pinterest board started and my vision was coming together. I was a Party City, Michael's and Jo-Ann's all before 11:00 am on Monday.
And buying clip art on Etsy to make the gift bag tags and food labels.
It was all coming together. I didn't cut any fingers making the moon centerpieces for the tables, though I did run through a lot of glue for the rockets and fire.
We loaded up the car and as we were cruising through downtown, I was reading a book to the boys in the backseat (can't you just picture it) when Zach projectile vomited. All over himself, his bear and my car.
I stuffed some wipes in his face trying to contain it and stem the onslaught as Alex started asking if I want him to just pull over or turn around. I refrained from calling him the names I wanted to and told him to turn around. Clearly we were not taking a puking kid to Dallas.
Well, hell. What about the party?? I had all the supplies! I began to hyperventilate a bit. It could have also had something to do with me breathing only through my nose while riding backwards in the car trying to clean up vomit.
I just could not believe this had happened. We were all exposed to a stomach bug over a week ago. I thought for sure we were in the clear. And I have never been solely responsible for someone else's party before! Are you kidding me?
So I knew the only thing to do, after checking into flights for just me, was to run to the FedEx store and have the box of supplies overnighted with 9:30 delivery. Did I mention the party started at 10? Yep, but I had to do something. I had to try to get it there.
Lauren was remarkably calm about the whole thing. She, in turn, went to Target and got replacement things for all the stuff I had sent just in case.
The box did arrive just before they were going to leave so she could use the moon sand bags and favor tags. Her mother-in-law and sister-in-law put together the moons at the start of the party, which made me very, very happy.
Though I don't know why this rocket is going the wrong way....
Doesn't matter. I was just so glad they could use some of it. My mom sent me pictures of it all as well, which I appreciated it.
Or, it could be to have everything finished by Thursday night, complete with diagrams for the tables, in case of such an event.
I am still thinking on it.
