North on I-95 to I-91 to I-84; serious jam around 11AM at the Mass Pike tolls, so we bailed onto US 20 for one exit, then onto the Pike at Auburn. Off onto 128, and around to the dropoff point.
Unloaded the truck with help in less than an hour (thanks MC, B, and K!) and then over to Budget to return it; which we did by 3:30PM without going over the 330 mile limit.
Drove back to E's. Waited for her to get home so we could go to the parties together. She still hadn't shown up at 10:30 so I took off to the birthday party (Happy Birthday S, C, the other S, and K!) intending to go to R & A's housewarming afterwards; E called me at the Junction so I went home to see her (schedule misunderstanding causing her not to have shown up after rehearsal until 11) and got distracted and fell asleep after midnight.
Also had plans to visit J's Katemas party but again, fell asleep.
Sorry I didn't get to the other two parties but I just ran out of steam.
