Joel's birthday was last Tuesday, but we celebrated it Friday evening. We had all of the Robinson family over for grilled hamburgers. He also invited a good friend and his wife from work. Joel told me several times how much he enjoyed his party. It sure makes a wife feel good to be appreciated.
And I was worn out from all the hard work involved in getting ready for a party. Zach's messes in the meantime also played a part in really wearing me out. He emptied salt and pepper shakers, knocked down my napkins, got into dishwasher detergent, and knocked a rooster off the top of my cabinets when a balloon got caught in the greenery. Needless to say, I was so nervous about trying to have everything in order when the guests arrived. It all worked out well.
I'm glad it turned out to be a good evening for Joel.
