Post Party Pleasure

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

The Party was well attended, in fact, better than we expected. 16 young adults came last night, including a dear young man who is a survivor of an automobile accident that damaged his brain.
This guy is very aware that life is a gift to him. He drags his right side, understands everything being said to him but is challenged to express his own thoughts. No one expected him to live let alone walk again but with these handicaps, he tackled Rock Band and Just Dance with a grin on his face and a shrug at his limitations. WOW! His friends love him!

All my worries about the salad, and it is the only thing left. The lasagna was decimated, what chicken was left (not much) went home with the birthday boy. The mistake I made with the salad? Mayo! It was a 7 layer salad and Mayo was the 6th layer. Haha. These are very health conscience, earth friendly young adults. They prefer no dressing or add their own and they conscientiously gathered every soda can and plastic bottle to take to the recycling plant on the way home. Impressive!

Can you see why we enjoy being with these guys? The last ones left by 10. DH and I were hiding in the other room due to the large group. We anticipated some playing board games in the front room, but all 16 of them stayed in the kitchen/family room to laugh at their buddies antics.

Today? A long neighborhood walk with my DD and our dogs, then a Knit Flick-that's a chic flick with knitting needles in hand.

    Glad it went so well! You deserve a knit-flick...and to be party-free for at least another month!

    Hope you and DD enjoyed your walk...it's great bonding time! I love time with my DD-- when she gives it to me.
