Let's see...<quoted text>
how did all of this go?
Lulu had a great time at the party. Nunu and I had a great time wasting time until we had to pick up Lulu. We got hailed on briefly and spent too much money at the Spice House.
The family party was not too bad either. The bad step-sis did not attend and I did not inquire as to why. I really don't care, because parties are way more fun when she is not there. My good step-sis talked the girls about what's going to happen to her with regards to chemo and they seem to understand and aren't afraid of or for her. Dad and the ladyfriend cooked some pulled pork and that was excellent, so all in all it was a good party.
Nunu looked adorable as Word Girl and appearantly for the time of the party, she could fly.(The birthday girl's backyard reminded me of the Backyardigans, where there are four or five yards that are connected and one of these yards had a trampoline. When I got there to pick her up, she was still jumping, er, flying.) But I did not get the nap I was hoping for. Instead, I got the exact opposite; Lulu wanted to go for a bike ride. It was a little crisp, but we warmed up quickly (having only one gear on a hilly path will do that to a person). Our only trouble came when we encountered the Crop Walkers (that's a fundraising 5K/10K walk/run to end hunger) and they seemed to forget the rules of the bike path. I almost ran right into one joker who completely refused to move over to the correct side of the path. Thankfully, we only had to share the path with them briefly.
