The party.

Thunderstorm coming in here at the Jersey Shore. Oh, how I love them. Especially during the summer. Correction: Especially during the summer on days when I can't make it to the beach.

This weekend was busy, busy, busy. Tim's 40th birthday was great, and I was surrounded by so many people I love it was almost hard to take it all in. We had a blast.

I realized though, that the party prep wasn't just about the BBQ and the party--for the months leading up, I was busting my butt getting our basement ready for our after-party. We managed to finish most of it, get the skeeball and air hockey and basketball down there. Everyone came back from the park and went nuts playing and having fun. But it's been an exhausting three months...I also redid the mudroom leading to the basement. It was so many Fridays and Saturdays of working nonstop in a coffee coma. Thank God I have SiriusXM on my phone.

So many details, paint, hardware, drying between coats, new curtains, faux finishing, organizing, dehumidifying. Now I'm coming down from all of it. I'm exhausted. I slept all day yesterday like I used to after I drank heavily in my 20s. I haven't had a drop of booze all weekend.

It was all worth it because we've got this great basement gameroom. But I'm pooped. Need to unwind. It was a lot on my sensitive system.
