RSVP, is it so hard?

What is it about those four little letters that just gets people in such a flakey way? I mean I know the whole concept of the idea is an acronym in French, but really people, it’s been around as a concept for over 100 years!! I’m having a tea for my sister this Saturday, she’s having a baby in April, and so we’re having a Tea Baby Shower. My best girlfriends (aka my ‘sisters’) and I are throwing the shower, and we’re making all the ‘fixins’ ourselves, so it’s not like it’s catered, but really we still need to figure out how much stuff to make, plus there’s the whole notion of the favors (and they’re specialized and hard to find).At this point it could be 24 people or it could be 32..and yes..I could have gotten/made favors for all 32..but the invite list was over 40..and these favors are special..and it’s January and sales tax and income tax time…not the time for throwing out money for favors for people that might or might not come to the shower. So why, oh why..don’t people RSVP?

On a fun note, tickets go on sale tomorrow for the St. Helena Fire Department Lobster feed, and they sell out in minutes, you have to practically camp out in front of the fire house to get a lotto number to try and buy a ticket..but my special source *cough*asst.firechief*cough* is going to help me out, and all this while packing for leaving bright and early for Nicaragua, geez a girl can feel so special. I’m so excited to go and see how it’s ‘really’ done, ours is fun and good..but this is ‘the big show’..the king one could say  of all lobsterfeeds. So we shall see…

could i have BLOGGED anymore today?

This is a total blog XP..but hey…if you’ve got more than one you’ve got to fill them up.
I keep hearing that old childish joke in my head today…does your face hurt? Well it’s killing me. My face hurts…not my whole face just the top left quadrant…not sure if it’s a sinus thing or what…it just hurts. And while I’m on the subject of ailments (man I sound like those Christmas letters of my parents friends that I hate..but this will turn good I promise) calves are sooo tight today, almost borderline cramping..and I couldn’t figure out why, with the rain I haven’t been running and most definitely not on pavement..i couldn’t figure out why, then my coworker said well you’re shoes are pretty flat, but look like they have good support…ahhh FLAT..that’s it! I bought these AWESOME shoes on and I’ve been wearing them nonstop, they have a little kitten heel and are trendy and an amazing sole, I don’t even notice I have a heel on..except today and yesterday..when I haven’t been wearing heels. I love these shoes so much…I bought a second pair…same color! I was afraid I was going to wear these out from wearing them so much. Anything to justify buying a second pair. my whole thing with the blog is that everyone looks at Cathy Z, Ali, Donna, Margies etc…and if they can keep a blog with their so very busy schedules I should too…but hey everyone wants to know what they’re doing…do you really care? Well I’m posting anyway…I’ll think of it as a word scrapbook my kids can look on in 80 years, if they can still view and if I ever have kids <ha ha>.
Well on one of my scrapbooking groups today they had this neat 4 question thing, and since I absolutely those ‘getting to know you things’ I filled it out..well turns out it’s been going around ‘the blogs’ for a bit now with the ‘famous’ ladies tagging each other. So here is mine..and I’ll get into the tagging spirit too…I tag Kei, Sonja, Debbie, Di, Donna and Barb M!
