Often, I shift the blame onto my work and how I feel when I arrive home and finally let go. Not to mention the work that I bring home with me, which takes up time too. Then there is my difficulty with writing - at times. You would think I should be able to come up with a sentence. You would think.
Anyway, back to news.
This week, I received an invitation to a birthday party. My niece, # 8 is about to turn one. That's right, it is almost 12 months since my dear sister popped her out. What a lovely turn of phrase that is. My niece, #5, is hosting the grand event at which the family will celebrate the first anniversary of #8's birth. The 5th created a cute invitation and emailed it to the family. The invitation gave us information about the party and asked for RSVP.
In case you aren't as surprised by this as me, I will remind you that #5 is only 9 years old. I teach teenagers who wouldn't know how to create an invitation so well. My surprise and excitement increased when I read that a jumping castle will be hired for the children to use.
My sister buys the low grade jumping castle that isn't big enough for adults. Rude! So, I never get to play in it. =(
You might be wondering how I replied to my niece's brilliant invitation... too bad if you're not.
I wouldn't miss it for the world. #8 is very lucky to have a big sister like you to organise her party. My big sister never booked a jumping castle for my birthday!
At least that was more than a sentence.
