I am not and it is OK!
Back when I was younger, everything had to be perfect like I was the Ms. Perfect Party Planner. I got it from my mom that’s for sure. The house would need a top to bottom cleaning (if someone came over lol), the food all done and designed so pretty on the plates, games for the kids and decorations. Of course that would be a week of planning, prepping and STRESSING. Who needs that!
But now I’m in my 40’s with two kids at home that are 11 and 9, I plan and prep the day of the holiday! Wow what happened to me? Did I loose my party mojo? I’ve noticed this for the past couple holidays. Guess what- I’m OK with it too. I let go of all that stress and I’m just WINGIN IT! Of course when I went to the store they didn’t have everything I wanted and I didn’t freak out. SCORE!
We MIGHT have guests and it’s okay they see my house not spic and span- they do realize I have 2 kids and hubby. I’m sure the crayon on the kitchen floor rug will be picked up at some point but there is bigger things I need to tackle. Getting all worked up that my house is not up to my par will have to do and I’m OK with that.
Do we have plans for tonight- not really! I’m taking the kids somewhere to chill out and listen to some music and later I might take them to see fireworks. Getting to see the fireworks is very important to my daughter so I will give it my best but she will just have to suck it buttercup if we can’t get down to the marina. We live in the Bay Area and Bart is on strike so TRAFFIC is a B*tch right now!
