We spent most of the weekend preparing for Lovegirl’s birthday party, enjoying the birthday party, and recovering from yes, the birthday party.
Friday night LG and I went out to a new Thai/Japanese fusion restaurant. The food was good, but I think they’re confused on the meaning of the word “fusion.” Just because you serve two types of cuisine does not mean you’re a fusion restaurant. Lovegirl ordered hibachi chicken and I had Basil Shrimp. Tasty! I really wanted a bowl of Tom kha gai (chicken/coconut milk soup), but I’m determined not to eat the same thing every time I have Thai food.
We had her party Saturday at the Y’s pool and I’ve got to say, I’m glad we did. There was room for everybody – from her classmates, to the neighbors, to the friends and family that came. I honestly have no idea how many kids were there – 16 I think? Not to mention the two kids that just wanted to swim and ended up joining the party for a while. Two of her classmates brought younger siblings which was cool and two of the mothers got in the pool. I was not in that number. I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to get in the pool. Oh well.
I mentioned on the Twitter that I was slightly annoyed because some relatives didn’t bring LG a present. Not because she needs or wants anything – it’s just the principle. If I showed up to one of their kids’ parties empty handed we’d never hear the end of it. Not to mention my SIL’s need to tell me the cake was too sweet. o_O.
Sunday I got up and went to early morning service by myself. I really enjoyed it. Not at all crowded and the pastor is doing an awesome series on establishing a deeper relationship with God.
Sunday afternoon I watched football (my Steelers got SPANKED!), tennis (Serena got SPANKED!), and worked on the dry, tangled mass that was Lovegirl’s hair.
And here we are back at Monday! How was your weekend?
