Party planning

Lloyd, School

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Last weekend was graduation at Lincoln Lutheran. This calls for attending more parties than I typically go to during the whole rest of the year combined. In the past I’ve just sort of looked at addresses and times and driven around. This year there were more parties that I really wanted to make sure I got to, so I upped the organizational skills a bit.

Exhibit A:

top: Saturday; bottom: Sunday

Exhibit B:

And one was WAY over to the right.

Exhibit B is kind of fun. You make a spreadsheet that has address, state and zip-code as well as whatever other information you want to include (name, times, whatever) and upload it to batchgeo.com and they turn it into a google map.

Anyway, the graduation parties were fun, and Lauren decided to do the right thing and go to(ward) the parties with me. Then she got off somewhere close by and did whatever she wanted to do.

    HAHAHA! “…go to(ward) the parties…”
    I’m glad I’m still alone at school this morning. I just laughed like a crazy person.

    I should make a map like that of the places I like to go. It would be this house and all the Target stores.
