I believe the carving party was our best yet. it was an adult party with 3 kids - my 2 and then we invited our nanny and her son to join us (she was not allowed to work). Carving and appetizers from 4 to 7. red beans and rice at 7. dessert and more drinks at 8 and i think everybody was gone by 10 or 11. i was exhausted. i spent thursday picking up tarps and carving tools and misc costume stuff. friday was all grocery and chopping, baking, plus lily's school stuff. saturday was cleaning cooking and running around crazy. so i am actually still recovering between that and halloween. We have no pictures, but I will post a few pictures of the costumes when i download the camera.

Glad it was a success! My house is still a disaster after Halloween.

My migraine is finally gone but I loaded up on coffee and diet coke. I'm hoping I can sleep...

Sorry you still have a headache Val. My late caffeine binge didn't do too much damage...I went to sleep around 11:30. I could have fallen asleep earlier but got sucked into a book! :)

Ugh. Sorry Val - that sucks! Eventually people will quit and it will get better, right? Although I'm sure everyone is holding out waiting for someone else to do it. LOL

Now that has got me thinking...I wonder if it is violating some labor laws if they tell you that you need to work from 8-4 (or whatever) then consistently tell you to go home early? It seems to me that if you have a shift scheduled, you need to be allowed to work it. The way they have it set up, you can't schedule another PT job! I would look into that.
