It appears all had a good time, which was the goal. There was cake, so I know I'd call it a successful party. I enjoyed cooking, and still felt that I could abandon the grill to make quick little social stops without getting overwhelmed by either side of the equation. The only thing I could have used more of would have been snuggles, but then again, that's always the case ;-).
Sunday was a little stressful with the removal and cleaning of things from my parents' house, but y'all were well-behaved, so nothing broken, nothing stained. Had various transportation horrors on the way home, and again from my place to the Ren Faire up at the Cloisters, tossing me straight into badmoodsville.
Now I am running on low sleep and have tons of leftovers in the fridge. Yum!
