One of my friends had a baby shower recently. She’s very nerdy but in a fun way. Big into steampunk. Very much into fairies and unicorns which the girls loved discussing with her. She’s super sweet and meeting her you might think she grew up sheltered but she had a crazy-ass childhood. Haha…I guess I can be the same way, even though we have different interests.
That gives me some of the concern how this will go. I really really like her husband. But in a way their dynamic has always been off because he helped give her an "escape" from her abusive childhood. In my case I lived independently for ten years before meeting Craig, but she jumped right into it. But they always got along well and were happy so no inherent harm, right? But they’d been together since teenager-hood and both said they always wanted kids. He never stopped claiming he wanted them. But he was pulling that,

I think she ultimately gave him a sort of ultimatum even though they were happy otherwise. It’s almost got a feel of the "having a kid to save the marriage" although that WAS the only issue, or only major one at least, so does that make it kind of different? I’ve known him for twenty-five years too–I do feel he’ll be fine and feel fulfilled–I just sense he really was not getting the "it’s now or never" biological thing. Unfortunately one of my other close friends is going through that, too…
So, we’re having a Pi Day Brunch. That’s the thing that dude wanted me to DIAF over for innocently mentioning, lol. I do admit it is hopelessly and eye-rollingly nerdy, but mostly–again–we just wanted something to break that cabin fever. And it DID seem like a good year to do it with the 3.14.15 extra two digits being added with the year. We’ve got appropriate food, playlist, and games. I do hope we’ll be fine space-wise but I think we’ll be good. We love to entertain,

We have this gorgeous three-tiered deck, an absolutely gorgeous sunporch, and the yard itself is also small but still fits a couple of 10×10 tents just fine but those things are all out of commission at the moment. But we rarely have more than one summer gathering because we’re so busy traveling/going to other people’s things, and you know, obligations. It’s a "slow" time a year, so why not? I mean, I know we’ll be fine. A couple of dozen people are expected. My friends with apartments the same size have that many people and it is fine. There’ll just be some tweaks to our M.O. is all.
Then it’ll be my nephew’s 4th birthday! I’m glad that while there are ups and downs we’re all getting along this year because it’s no good for drama around that. They told him he could pick whatever theme he wanted and he picked…giraffe! My favorite animal! So, very flattering, but of course that means I’ll be called on to help even more than usual,
