No More Parties

Yesterday was Mr. Hubs birthday. He turned the BIG 6-0!
I planned this party for him. ( I like to do parties for big numbers).
Didn't want a lot of food, so I just had my sisters and nieces do deserts.
So we had cheesecakes, brownies, cookies, etc. Just a variety of
We just did it as an open house and it was for 2 hours. I talked to people
that he worked with and created an event page on Facebook. I made phone calls
and sent text messages.
No one came! I guess I shouldn't say no one, 1 of my sisters (and her 5 kids),
1 of my brothers and his wife and daughter (it was at their place) my parents,
My oldest sister's 3 daughters came (not my sister). 1 of his nieces (and her daughter) came 3 guys that work with him, 3 guys that used to work with him
and that's it! None of his brothers & sisters came, and None of his "friends" came. Guess we know who his friends are.
So, then here I am pissed because I work my butt off, have my family work their
butts off and no one shows up. And the worst part, Mr. Hubs didn't even want
to be there. He wanted to just be home on his throne, by the fire place, watching
t.v. Needless to say, that's my last party. Not doing anymore.
What do I do? I stew over everything that went on last night. I get up this morning
and am still pissed about everything from the night before. So, after being up for a few hours and still stewing over things, I decide I need to leave. I take my camera and stuff out to the car and decide to go back down to the lake and do more pictures.
I'm gone maybe an hour, and my camera battery is dead! Seriously? I didn't even check it before I left the house and I didn't have my other battery with me. But, it did make me feel better for that little while I was out and the few pictures I did get done.
Here are a few of the pictures I did today.
                              The ice on the lake is starting to
                               break up and push into shore

                                     An old tree with the blue sky and
                                    mountains & lake in background

                                 An old Christmas tree someone had
                                    been burning on the shore

Hope you all have a great rest of the weekend.
Til We Meet Again! Pam
