Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Golden Anniversary

Sometimes I get myself in over my head and then as I'm sinking, I wonder what I was thinking at the time.

I just started planning today for a 50th anniversary party for my parents. They'll mark the occasion this June and I figured I better start planning now.

To-do list:
Email my brother and sister-in-law to tell them to mark their calendars - check
Call the church where I grew up attending to book room - check, sort of
Find out from church that I need a current member to sponsor me - check
Call my best friend's grandmother to see if she'll sponsor me - check
Wait for return call with availability after secretary finds the church calendar - check

Now what? I'm totally clueless as to how I'm going to do all the rest. Ok, clueless is a bit of an overstatement. I've planned weddings and baby showers. How hard could this be? Probably really hard when both of my parents balked at the idea of me giving them a party when I mentioned it last year.

*taking deep breaths*

At least I'm starting six months ahead of time, so I should be able to do a little each month, so it won't be so overwhelming when the time comes. I'll have to start compiling a list of people to invite and find ways to notify the people they grew up with. I have no clue how I'm going to do that. Maybe mom will let me borrow her address book. It will be sad, though, as my mom's best friend died a few years ago. I know she'll miss having her there. I guess I can start sending out notices to my family to mark their calendars.
