It was a flurry of activity this weekend…the movies, cupcake making and decorating, dinosaur excursion, putting together 24 goody bags, present opening and shrieks of laughter and excitement…  I have been in constant ‘go, go, go!’ mode since Thursday.


I’m tired.

I’m looking forward to today being the calm after the storm.

Cleaning up the flurry of activity, getting things organized, cleaning the house, doing the laundry that was left unattended this weekend…

Oh, wait.

That doesn’t sound so calm.

But it won’t be at the excessive speed of motion the other things were, so that in itself is more of a calming factor.

Princess Nagger said she had the best Birthday of her whole life!   Her favorite part was going to the Dinosaur Museum yesterday – she had so much fun playing with Martha and Andrea’s kids.  It was great fun to meet some cool bloggy friends in real life.
Thanks so much Martha and Andrea – and your awesome kids – for helping make Princess Nagger’s birthday extra special – it made my day extra special too!  Now I don’t have to be jealous of other bloggers who have a chance to meet some of their favorite bloggers in person, because I got to do just that! 
Thank you to everyone who wished Princess Nagger a Happy Birthday yesterday – she read all the comments and was tickled pink!  Wait – tickled purple, since that’s her favorite color.  You all helped make her day extra special, too!
More to come when the calm has increased in stature…

    Justine :O )

  5. Glad she had the best birthday ever! She looks GREAT digging up dinosaur bones – it looks like she's a natural!

  6. I'm so glad PN had the bestest birthday ever – those dinosaur excursions can make or break a good birthday party, you know.

    If it's any consolation, "calm" has taken a vacation at our house, too, and probably won't be back until after Thanksgiving. At least it will be fun!

  7. It was so good to meet you all! I'm glad PN enjoyed her birthday! The day wore me out. I never even got a group shot of us all!

  8. Thanks for sharing what a wonderful day and birthday she had. You met some blogger friends? I am jealous!

    Hope you plan to post some photos!

  9. House full of screaming little kids, jacked up on sugar… Can't understand why you're tired…:)

  10. Happy Birthday to the Princess! Glad it was a success. I personally would take a couple of days to veg and recover. The cleaning will still be there when you're done. 😉 Can't wait to hear more details about your bloggy meetup.

  11. It's great to meet bloggers. Glad the princess enjoyed her birthday. I hope you can find time in your calm day for a glass of wine because it sounds like you've earned it!

  12. I had a feeling that no matter what you would think about the museum, she'd love it! What a special treat for her!!!

  13. Aw, happy belated birthday Princess Nagger! Sorry I am a day late and a dollar short, story of my life lately! lol.

  14. How cool that she had her party at a dinosaur museum!!! We don't have one here which really bums out one of my sons, who's totally into dinosaurs!

    Sounds like her birthday party went really well and was lots of fun!!

  15. Glad to hear that she had a great birthday. All that work was well worth it. Now you should take some time to relax.
