I know it’s a little late, but here’s a recap of our unplanned Super Bowl evening.
We had big plans to have friends over for the game. I came up with a pretty good menu – vegetarian chili, pizza rolls, chicken nuggets for the kids, pasta salad, chips and dip, and cookies – and Lucy and I spent some time out picking up decorations and last minute items.
But, when Joe returned home from his 30-mile (yes, that was 3-0) run, he wasn’t feeling quite right. We waited until about 45 minutes until our guests were supposed to arrive to give him a chance to start feeling better but had to call it off. We’re not sure if he had a stomach bug or it was something with the long run and amount of fuel. In any case, he wasn’t in any shape to have people over.
Lucy was REALLY disappointed because she was looking forward to playing with the kids who were supposed to come. I think she thought she was being punished because she kept begging us to let them come. It broke our hearts. So, we set up the party for her. I didn’t make all the food I was planning, but I set up some decorations and put out some food for us all. She had a blast!
