Doing It All for My Baby*

*Not tired of it yet!

No Thursday Thirteen for the day. Instead, I will show you how I found out that we are having a party at my house on Friday.

To: All H's Coworkers, -R-
From: H
Subject: Invite


I am planning a poker/guitar hero party this Friday starting at 7ish. [5 named coworkers] are already planning on attending. Email me back if you intend on being there. If you do not know what guitar hero is let me know. Please let me know by Thursday if you plan on attending so YOU will know how much food and liquor YOU will have to bring for EVERYONE.


If someone is not on the [e-mail distribution list], please invite them.

B.Y.O. Chair

When I called H to find out what was going on and asked why he didn't run this by me first, he said, "But I told you about it in advance!" So as long as I am invited to this party at my own house, and I knew about the party before it actually began, H thinks we are good. To quote Jonniker and Guinness Girl, "GAH!"

[I am not mad, but I am annoyed. I think the party will be fun though.]

Is that what we call "fair warning"? Or is that H's definition?

But c'mon, you know you can't go wrong with Poker and Guitar Hero!

don't call me MA'AM said...

I have outlawed poker in my house. The husband can have poker in the garage, but his smelly, dirty friends are not allowed in the house. And I'm not even a clean freak.

Yeah, I would be miffed if the invitation was a surprise like that. I never buy that "I told you a long time ago" excuse either. You should hold out for something big now. Jewelry maybe? A new car? Something that constitutes ample compensation. ;-)

I call foul. You can't plan a gathering at your house without the other person knowing about it. For all he knows you were hoping to go to a movie that night or something...Or sit home and have a quiet evening.

But have fun anyway!

This sounds like a total Galoot move (sorry honey). Actually, now that we have kids he would tend to ask me in advance (because our schedules are so nuts dealing with the little ones and all).

Galoot is actually more likely to tell either one of his parents that we are coming to visit, THEN tell me much later. I think he's secretly afraid to tell either one of them no.

Wish we lived closer so we could come to the party too!

how was the party?!!

In our house, I'm the one who plans get togethers without letting husband know first. If I didn't plan stuff, we would never do anything.

Spaw, definitely H's definition of fair warning.

Ma'am, these friends are ok. And yet, I think I will definitely be expecting some special earrings in the near future!

3carnations, exactly what I said. Hopefully, we can discuss plans first next time.

Prep, you definitely would have been invited!

Mango, thanks.

Sarah, it was great. I did pretty well at Guitar Hero!

PD, I am usually the planner and the instigator here too. =)
