Oh, dear merciful heavens.  
So a couple of weeks ago, I agreed to host a party for all of the couples that are going on the cruise in two weeks, with their kiddos.  That's 12 adults, 16 kids. 

I thought, "Oh, yeah.  It'll be fun."


I still have cleaning to do, 4 lasagnas to make, to drag out the vacuum so the rugs can be some semblance of clean, & make beds.

Okay, that's not so bad.  Nolan just went to the grocery store for me, because he is a Godly man who loves me and wants to preserve my sanity.  Of course, he'll inevitably forget something, or get creative with an item on the list and have to make a return trip to the store, but I'm holding out hope, as ever.  I was very specific.  We shall see.

And My SIL is coming to get the boys for the afternoon.  So, all in all, could be worse?

Aaaaand it's a big posting week for Muove.  Lotsa fun scenes.  Some that still aren't finished yet.  Not that I'll be able to do anything about them TODAY. 

Well, maybe.  I am, after all, the queen of the multitask.  :D

You can do this, you really can.

And woot! for Nolan for being helpful.

Good luck with everything! :D

Your party sounds FUN, actually. I love entertaining. You'll be fine. Deep breaths. Loud music.

You are the QUEEN of entertaining. I love that about you! I'm sure things will be FABULOUS because YOU are fabulous! YAY for Nolan helping out.

And talking about posting - I suppose I have a post to post, eh? ;)

Oops! X) I know it will all turn out great because you do have Nolan and you have your own confidence. Plus, you have us sending you all kinds of support wishes. ;)

*huggles for extra measure*

Speaking of Si_Muove...I am 4 days behind! :O

Don't tell anyone, but I'm farther behind than that!

Party! Lasagna! Yum!

Have fun multitasking! (Ok, so maybe fun's not the adjective I should use here)

My sister & brother bake with what my sister calls the "chuck it in and see how it goes" method. Using a regular mug for a cup measure. Surely anything Nolan comes up with cannot be worse than that? And their banana cake turned out quite well so the "we'll just experiment with the ingredients" method might not be so bad after all. As long as you're not putting caramel into the cheese sauce, it'll be fine. ...right?

Stay sane!
