So, onto Mardi Gras progress...

1 week before:
Week of party - down to the wire!
Still to do tonight!
Day of party!
...then have fun! :)
Unfortunately my place is still a disaster of disorganization, since I got both cars into the garage the weekend before I went to visit my parents, but the last several boxes hadn't found a real home yet, so the patios are unusable as I type. Instead of actual final unpacking & organization as I'd like to have done by now, those boxes will be stashed back into the garage, moving a car back into the driveway if necessary, then the patios arranged for party use. This is the largest project for tonight, and might be the reason I have to not sleep at all, especially since on the way home from work today is both a goodbye pint at a pub for a longtime co-worker, then onto a radio station Mardi Gras party in SF for a few hours...I'm a glutton for punishment, I know, but I'm willing to sacrifice sleep for the sake of just about any party...just look at what I do for my own parties! ;)
