So far the big 4-oh has not been so bad. I was quite pleased to have so many of our friends show up at the party and enjoy the food, and yet we still have a lot of leftovers. Not a bad thing, really, and I certainly won’t have to buy any soda or beer for a while.
Also, we got several surprise visitors. Kelly was not surprised to see her parents, but they definitely surprised me. And both of us were surprised to see Liza (the maid of honor for our wedding) since neither of us thought she would be coming to the party. And we had a couple of other last-minute changes of plan where people who did not think they would make it were able to come after all, so it was good all around.
Also also wik, we had the best-tasting orange baseball cake ever.
