Does that still exist? Please tell me it still exists. Of course I never partied, because I had first period classes on Fridays of my senior year – when Senioritis usually sets in. Since I didn’t drink at all then (or still), there were no hangovers at least. Besides that, I didn’t declare my major until the summer before my senior year, and you don’t call six journalism classes in one week “Senioritis”! As if Senioritis also entails Dean’s List, Phi Beta Kappa, studying on weekends, and choosing boys over drinking.
Des started the school year with three days of preschool and one day at his beloved daycare. Over time, the distance from Wednesday preschool until the next day he had it – Monday – stretched too far and too wide. He had Preschool Angst. So we added Fridays to his schedule, but then his other things suffered. He was too burnt out to do four days of preschool AND a day of daycare, and he was also growing weary of going to his grandparents’ house every other Thursday. So Thursdays are now our free-for-alls. We go on adventures together. I figure I’ll only get to do this so much until full-time kindergarten begins.
So that’s what brings me to party Thursdays. When you’re a blogger like me, somehow, generally you have the bulk of your work between Monday – Wednesday. I do sponsored posts on Fridays, brand-willing, or that’s a day I write for myself. Lately, I’ve needed to write for myself more than once a week. I’m up to 1-4 times a week! I hope you like it. I needed to mix it up, quite like Des did too. Thursdays are party days, I hereby decree, and party days need party treats, I also hereby decree.
My Beauty and the Beast movie tickets have been purchased for tomorrow night with Scarlet and her best friend’s family, and I’m pretty psyched to sit down and let the visuals dance in front of me. I always did love Cogsworth, which is why I love this treat. I know it looks pretty intense, but I assure you that you can make them too! So hereby declare your party day, and go make some treats! Or see a movie! Or dance with your underwear on your head, like Des does. Mix things up, party style!
