Staying Late to Clean Up
--by Aurelia, posted Sep 27, 2007
A neighbor of mine celebrated his 50th birthday on Saturday. His family gave him a nice birthday party with wonderful music and food. They actually had a Pig Roast. 70 people were at his house to celebrate with him. The food was delicious and the Pig was a real treat.
We all enjoyed his beautiful back yard. We played horseshoes, bocci, volleyball and listened to music.
About 11pm everyone started leaving. I too was tired and ready to leave! Then I looked around at all the cups, plates and Soda/beer cans. Lots of food needed to be covered up and brought into the house. I said to my husband that I wouldn't be leaving yet and I was helping clean up the party area. He stayed to help to and we all got it cleaned up quickly. Then we were invited to sit down around a bonfire to enjoy it's beauty and relax just bit before we left a 1am.
I'm glad we stayed to clean up.
