Party On

Oh, you guys. Lacey's party was so awful.

I am not a girl who has her entire wedding planned out, but that's a wedding (/engagement party/hippie lovefest) that I know that I don't want. I would rather not have one, honestly, than have one like that.

It was basically a high school graduation open house. In October. In the rain. Very cold rain.

(I kind of find high school graduation open houses to be a form of cruel punishment.)

The event started at 4 pm and, because I had to work yesterday, I didn't get there until 6:00 pm. Lucy and Chet and Baby A left at 6:30 pm. Which was seriously a little mean, them leaving me there with Lacey's family and seriously nobody else who I knew. Lucy said to me today "I felt a little like we were abandoned you" which, YES, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DID. And I want to be a little bit mad about it but I'm not even going to bother because I don't have the energy.

I hung out for a while longer and just wanted to cry. Lacey did an awful time of working the room (and by room, I mean rented tent and garage) and her family is a little bit nutty and I never got to talk to her betrothed (although he did seem likable when I met him on Friday) and, honestly, I enjoyed myself for approximately 17 seconds during the entire time that I was there.

Lucy talked to Lacey today and apparently the party was exactly what she wanted.

So I guess we did okay after all.

As long as my own enjoyment of the event doesn't count.

And as long as I don't calculate the ratio of minutes spent preparing for the party to minutes spent at the party.
