Example of things I did due to unwarranted anxiety:
I ordered custom invites because I wanted to impress the parents of the kids at the daycare because I was so afraid they wouldn't come.
I gave the invites to a daycare worker to hand out because I didn't really want to know who got one so I wouldn't know who decided not to come. (I just asked to her to invite anyone who she thought might like to attend)
I paid more than I could afford to rent out an indoor playground to impress the kids so they would like Kate. Which is stupid because she is so fucking likeable!
I snapped at anyone who questioned my party planning (sorry Alex).
The party was a huge success regardless of my anxious planning.
Live and learn.
