Do as I say, not as I (hardly EVER!) do

If you are ever in need of a friend who's not afraid to tell you to stop being an overachiever and give you suggestions on how to simplify your life, I am always accepting applications. At least I will be after I finish my Hypocrite class, because somebody just spent three hours making a ticket booth for her daughter's upcoming Carnival birthday party - as in I went to the back lot of a mattress store, pilfered a large cardboard box, painted it with stripes and a lovely awning, and cut an opening where Drew will stand to collect the tickets I created in PowerPoint as the invitations to use as the guest's entrance fee. This ticket booth will be used for approximately 3 minutes, so that's one minute for every hour spent making it. That's a pretty good use of time when I'm trying to leave town and I have four loads of laundry to do, right?

Hypocrite class. What a great idea.

Seeing as I have spent the last few Saturdays, planning an actual Harry Potter Tri-Wizard Tournament for Emi, all I can say is, [silence]. Oh yeah I have nothing to say about simplifying!

I love it! You should post pics of that.

Am I surprised? Not hardly. Samantha will always remember it, too. Can't wait to see it.
