You MADE the Party

Geesh - we have been so dang busy that my poor little blog has been so neglected. We have had co-ops and labs and helping kids who are studying the cellular kingdoms of bacteria and such in biology, and reading books about the Aztecs, reading and critiquing essays (on request), keeping neighbors blood-thirsty dogs away from my cats and doctor's appointments with my hubby who acts like a big two year old and likes to open drawers and get into things while we're confined in the itty-bitty exam room. To think that just a few short weeks ago - we had virtually nothing on our plates, and now we're spinning like a top.
Last night, the girls were invited to a surprise birthday party that took place at this really hip little eatery called Jason's Deli. I tried to talk them out of it, but there was no way. They had a great time, and I sat with my friend Melody and had adult conversation, and ate something called a Muffelatta which has ham, hard salami, provolone and some sort of an olive dressing, on grilled bread. Yummy. After the party the kids went bowling until late-thirty. When we were about to leave, the birthday girl's mom thanked us for coming and when we thanked her for inviting us, she said in the sweetest southern accent, "Well, you MADE the party." Imagine that! Somebody likes us. Wonders never cease. I am going to stop telling myself it's just because they don't know us yet. We are a bit of an acquired taste.


  1. I think it was probably because you are genuine, friendly, and sweet, so you are right- no negative thoughts!

  2. Wow, sounds like fun! BTW I was wondering where you were, glad to know you are ok.

  3. Sounds like the real you is finally coming back! Pretty soon, you'll be the hub of the group...right where you belong! Lucky them!

  4. Weird...I just watched a show all about how to make a muffelatta. I had never heard of it before. It sounded good until they mentioned chunks of olives. I don't mind a couple...but lots? ewwww...

    I LOVE the color of your blog. SO pretty.

  5. Mmm... I love the California Club and red beans and rice (which cheese and onions please).

    And I bet you are FUN IRL just like on your bloggity blog!

  6. Yeah, Jason's Deli has GREAT Reuben Sandwiches! My favorite thing they USED to have on the menu:
    It was a pasta salad with black olives, red onion, shrimp, sliced avocado and this fabulous dressing served over lettuce and tomatoes! Man oh man was that ever good! I wish they still had it! Now, when I go I tend to graze the salad bar the whole time. I love topping off my meal with the free ice cream! Yummy!

  7. Oh, your sandwich sounds sooooo yummy! I love really deli sandwiches.

    You made me laugh witht he ending...you are SOOOOO likable!


Awaiting your words......
