Thankful Thursday 6


Thankful Thurday: What CHRIXEAN is thankful for this week
1) Finally we've settled on a party place for Nicky's 7th birthday. After much thought, computing and re-somputing our budgets, trips to nearby restaurants and endless quotations from caterers and party planners, we've finally decided on having a T.G.I.Friday's Spongebob Squarepants Birthday Party! It's not as expensive as renting a classy venue and hiring a caterer and a party host/magician, etc. And it's not as "low-priced" as a McDonald's party where the mascots are really so old and dirty already, and the food are purely made of fat and more fat (so sorry to employees of McDonald's who might be reading this, but it IS true!). At TGIF, everything's still very reasonable-priced, the food's good, and we will still get the party host / magician / balloon twisting guy plus tons of games and shows. I'm really quite pleased with the decision, and relieved that it's finally out of the way!

2) A day of shopping with my good friend, The White Rabbit. It was a welcome treat to have a gal pal accompany me to go preggy shopping, helping me pick out maternity duds, and making sure that I don't look like a refrigerartor in drag nor a milkmaid from the '60s.

3) Patient readers of my blog, who send me well-wishes, greetings and words of encouragement. They get me through rough days, and remind me that I am not alone in any situation.

You mean Nicky's bday will be done in your home? That's wonderful. At least everyone would be free to move.
