Lori had to be off to the airport on Sunday morning and was gracious to offer to go a little early so we could combine trips and take 2 of my husband's brothers who had been in town to play golf and keep him company while we whooped it up in the studio.
My sisses and I had a day of shopping in KC after dropping him off, but by then, I was starting to droop. Hopefully, I wasn't too cranky, but man- was I tired! Days of prep, then the blast of excitement (and work) of the event, and so much fun hanging out with family that we kept staying up past midnight, were starting to hit me hard.
I just don't get to see my family often enough, so I did my best to stay awake, but I'd finally hit a wall and gave up. I climbed into my bed mid afternoon with the Puppeesh, and 3-1/2 hours later, I woke up more like myself than one of the walking dead.
How lucky I am to have a family that helped me pull it all off and never stopped washing dishes, to have such talented friends who taught classes, and to have so many old and new friends who wanted to be a part of our weekend, who came from all over the country to cut, snip, glue, and laugh with us.
I've got lots of photos of our party to edit and show you. But for now, I think I'll have another little nap. And I'm sure it will be filled with sweet dreams of Birdsong and the lovely people who came to see me here.
