This weekend at Casa de Kimmy will be full of excitement. My mom's birthday is next week, and I'm hostessing her early surprise birthday party tomorrow. Keeping a surprise party from my mother is no small feat, let me tell you. For those of you who were around in 2006, and remember the big anniversary shindig I threw for my parents, you may also remember that my mother tried every way possible to inadvertantly blow it for me. She's done pretty much the same thing this time. She's not doing it on purpose...she just has this knack for accidentally planning over my plans, but thus far, the party seems to be on-target and the guest list has grown exponentially. I'm cooking a Mexican-themed feast for the occasion. A big pot of chili, taco and fajita serve-yourself bars, guacamole and salsa. It's gonna be awesome. Then at 3:30 we'll settle in to watch the Vols get pummeled by Florida. That part's more for my dad and uncles than my mom, but I think she'll have fun anyway.

In other news, kittycat got his manhood snipped yesterday. He came through the surgery brilliantly and was bounding around the house as if nothing had happened in no time. He's still bounding around the house as though nothing had happened. I was hoping that he might have some lingering effects of the sedative to give the elder cats a little rest, but no such luck. What I wouldn't give to have 1/8 of his energy. There was kind of a funny moment.. Last night, he climbed into bed with me and settled down on my lap to groom himself. When he got to the snipped parts, he sort of jerked his head up at me and gave me this absolutely shocked "..the hell..??" sort of expression, like he just noticed they were gone. Poor kitty. I guess that would be a surprise, huh? You go to sleep with testicles, wake up and they're gone.

And that's about it. I need to go forth and plan more. I've been preparing for this party for what seems like forever. Now I need to make my lists and schedules (yes, OCD much?) That helps though. If I know I need to have the chili on by 7 am, start the cake by 9, etc. etc., then I can get it all done smoothly and not run around like a crazy woman. Lists and schedules are my friend. Yesterday, [ profile] headbanger118 was laughing at me for my uber-organized shopping list (I had everything categorized), but I got everything I needed in an efficient manner.

OK...duty calls.

Thank you so much, to those who have already sent me loverly early birthday wishes! I feel very special. ♥

I will be gone tomorrow ON my actual birthday. Vacation time! First off, it's the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga. They've got a spiffy new penguin display! I know that they will be behind glass. But perhaps if I tell them it's my birthday, they'll let me pet one! ;-) Yeah, I doubt it, too. It IS my dream to touch a penguin, you know. But I will at least take lots of pictures.

Friday, we were going to go to an amusement park, but as I'm the only daredevil who likes the rides in my family (and I heard the place we were considering was a dump), that one will be foregone, in favor! Hamilton Place Mall in Chattanooga is the largest shopping center in the state. We checked it out a long time ago, but I'm thinking it's bigger and better now. So I'm sure many goods will be purchased. Retail therapy cures ANYthing.

Saturday is a family cookout (my menu choice...ALL fresh vegetables, YUM. And a chocolate fudge cake.) Then Sunday, back to the Knoxville area to watch the Tennessee Smokies play baseball. No, it's not the big leagues, but they're still fun to watch, and the games are always a good time. Plus, they have this soft-serve ice cream that is to DIE for. Seriously. It's served in a little plastic baseball cap. :-P What could be funner?

So yeah, a nice relaxing birthday. Not. But it should be a good time at home, and then I'll feel like I need a vacation after my vacation. As always, if you've got presents, just leave 'em at the door. ;-) Heh heh.

Have a great weekend all, and thanks again for my greetings (and my song, Terri! That was spectacular!)

Be back Sunday night!
