My mom and I were planning to have a small family get-together for the 4th of July; it was just going to be 8 or so of us for the day. We live on the street across the river from where the fireworks are fired so they close down our street and there are always a lot of people outside. I decided to invite a couple of other people and then a few more, and then a friend found out I was having a party and asked if they could come too. Well I’m not quite sure how it happened but we have somewhere around 30 people that are supposed to come through out the day! I love this holiday so it will be a lot of fun but I’ve never planned a party for this many people before so this has been interesting. I had to make a trip to the grocery store to pick a bit more food just in case we need it.
The kids will be with their dad for the holiday and the weekend so that’s a bit of a bummer for me and for them as well. They were planning to have a lemonade stand like they did last year. Even without my kids here there will still be about 11 kids here to keep us occupied. As much as I love the holidays it still always makes me sad to think about those ones we love who are not able to be with us and enjoy them together with them. Of course for me this includes the kids when they are with their dad. I know that the only thing I can do is to make the best out of it that I can and enjoy the day as much as I can without being too sad.
Well there is a lot of work to be done still and the first couple of kids have arrived so I need to shut this computer off and get some work done. I hope everyone has a great holiday and enjoys the fireworks tonight.
