Just married!

Home from The Wedding! Well, that was last night, and I was too tired to finish this post. The day was long, the ceremony beautiful, the reception exciting and fun, and I am grateful and happy it went without any big glitches. My son teared up when K walked out and down the aisle. My…

Holding patterns

As of today, G and K's wedding is officially a week away. I am looking forward to it; I know it will be a lovely and memorable event, a milestone in each of our lives. But I cannot WAIT for it to be over. The following Tuesday we leave for our annual 5 days of…

Lets talk numbers

All over the various blogs I follow and forums I read there is chat about end-of-month numbers. As I just finished my self-employment invoicing, I have my own set of significant numbers to share Work. At my part-time job, I logged 116 hours for the month and billed 152 hours for my self-employment gig, bringing…

Shopping, dropping, not again soon-ing

Yesterday was all about wedding shopping. For M. And it was not fun for either of us, but since G and K's wedding is now less than 2 weeks away, it had to be done. As in most things, M and I have wildly different tastes. But in this case as well, we had wildly…

The Dress and my gym crazy returns

After a very shopping-crazed few weeks I have found The Dress for G and K's wedding. There were 17 different dresses delivered to my home or office the last couple of weeks, and not only were there 17 different dresses, there were 17 different dresses in 2, sometimes 3 different sizes. Because I'm just not…

Eating, drinking, making merry

C got married yesterday, and it was truly lovely. Simple, to the point, not a lot of flourish, with the people she and A love most in attendance. There were a few regrettable absences - G could not get off work, A's brother is somewhere in Asia. Still, it was wonderful and they are very…

27 dresses

Disclaimer: I haven't seen the movie and have no idea what the plot of it is/was, but the title has stuck with me and seems so appropriate right now. So a couple of weekends ago I found what feels like the perfect dress for my son's wedding in September. Since I wanted to think about…
