Tea Party

Hi! How are you?  I am looking forward to the weekend though I am going to steer clear of the city.  We are expecting over a million visitors to the city this weekend because of the Super Bowl.  My husband who normally works in the city got permission to work from home tomorrow, so that he wouldn't have to combat the traffic which is already crazy without the addition of all the shenanigans from the events surrounding the Super Bowl.  Today I threw the girls a tea party.  They were so excited when they got home from school and saw the table decorated.  I laid out dresses for them and they changed their clothes, brushed their hair and got their dolls ready.  My husbands colleague brought us a box of Macrons from Laduree in Paris, I set out a bowl of strawberries, a plate of hummus and carrots and a pot of hot cocoa.  Seriously, it took like 5 minutes to dress the table.  It was that simple; however, it meant the world to the girls.  Then we sat down and talked about their day at school.  I think sometimes we think we need to do really fancy things for our kids, but sometimes it is just the simplest of actions that make the biggest impact.  They said it was the best day ever and you know what it made my day too as I was having a little pity party because I am going to need an MRI on my shoulder and possibly surgery.  The doctor feels like I should have made greater progress on gaining my mobility back.  I still can't lift my arm all the way back over my head and forget about bringing it back behind my back.  I am so frustrated.  It just plain sucks.  Well, I need to run because I need to take my son to the store to by a birthday present for his friends birthday party this weekend.  Have a great weekend!

Hopefully the MRI points the way forward. That tea party is a good way to spend an afternoon.

Avoid surgery! What's needed is patience and exercising. It took me 6 months to regain my shoulder, but afterwards I forgot I had ever even had a problem. Thank God.

I know the girls will remember this day for a long, long time! I pray that your arm gets better soon.
What a great idea to catch up on your children's day and looks like it was an enjoyable after school at home party. Sorry to read about your continuing arm issues, but I agree with Duta's comment that if surgery can be avoided that might be a better approach, but perhaps it's not possible so hope all goes well for you. Shame on that anonymous spammer who posted here.

It was wonderfully open-handed of people like you to deliver extensively all a number of us could have distributed for an electronic book in order to make some bucks for their own end, and in particular considering the fact that you could possibly have done it if you ever decided.

Kelleyn, you are the bestest mom! I love that you put together an impromptu tea party for your girls. Reading about it has me hoping that I would've done something like that if I had children. Wishing you the best with your shoulder.
How sweet and lovely, nothing nicer than a tea party.
Sorry, later than I wanted to (had a power outage for 2 days) - have 2 grands the age of your daughters, so I totally get the image of the daughter-with-doll images:)
Went literally one time ever to a superbowl party, because my best friend invited me. Oh, and we left early, because after all the food, we didn't see any sense to crowd in a room where the TV was on to watch the game. That's my European view (lol).
Have been thinking how to say anything about your upcoming surgery - when I had carpel tunnel and sciatica I asked people who had the recommended operation, how much it had helped them (of course my doc told that I eventually needed surgery, but since my bro is an MD I always do research). Since it's caused by inflammation, I decided to try taking anti-inflammatory food.
After two years, also with prayers, I was back to my old self.
Especially with the last, several said they still were half of the time in pain after the operation. I know it's not the same operation, but I thought maybe you can ask some people for their experience.

What a sweet tea party! Your girls look so happy :)
It sure looks like a fun party! I have dolls...can I come next time! I hope you are feeling better now and heal up as you should! Take care of yourself! Hugs!

Such lovely, lovely girls you have Kelleyn. They so remind me of my granddaughters who I'm afraid to say, don't have matching dolls. A good idea though.
