I am getting the hang of this party-planning thing. Party City opens at 8:30, Michaels at 9:00. They're both mobbed on the weekend, with long and tedious lines. If I leave now, go to PC first and place balloon order, then shop while the balloons are being inflated, I should finish up about in time for Michaels to open, and with any luck, do a grocery run and be home by 10, ready to prep the lasagne. And on we go.
