Almost There

It’s very close and my brain is not focused here. I thought I’d give you all a rundown of the rest of the week for me if you ever wonder where I am or what I’m doing. You know…for all you stalkers to keep track of me.

Tuesday: MIL gets here, the drama officially gets kicked into overdrive. Luckily, she isn’t staying with us until later, Gemini is the lucky one who gets to keep her entertained and out of trouble.

Wednesday: All the relatives from Tulsa and Omaha will be arriving, staying at my mom’s place luckily. I can’t wait to see them, even the kids if you can believe it.

Thursday: My last day of work, I plan to try not to drool while I nap on my desk.

Friday: This day is when it get really busy. Must go check bouquets and such to make sure they are up to my standards, which means make sure they aren’t wilted. Must go buy food at BJs for rehearsal dinner, MIL will probably come along which means I’ll have to regularly explain all the details of the wedding and avoid talk of future grandchildren. Then we have rehearsal dinner, will be fun, low key and mildly insane just because of the different people all in one spot. I will also have a talk with MIL that morning about not mentioning anything about Erik’s ex. for the rest of the weekend

Saturday: This day is supposed to be relaxing but this is doubtful. My mom is having a brunch that morning, so we must stop by there (even though it’s a 45 minute drive). I will probably get my nails done that day and at 4:00 must go have my hair put in curlers. The rest of the day will be spent at the hotel having dinner with my BMs and lounging in the hot tub. Dubious amounts of drugs will be consumed.

Sunday: 7:00 am get hair done and 3:30 pm start ceremony. Whatever happens after that is anyone’s guess, I’ll just be trying to go with the flow by then.

Monday: Brunch thingy at the hotel with the family and guests that are leftover still. After that we head to Newport Rhode Island for our mini-honeymoon. This will mostly involve sleeping, lounging in the jacuzzi and a brief tour of the mansions.

Wednesday: We return and my blog goes back to “normal.”

    Is minihoneymoon a euphemism for quickie sex?

    Have a good week. Or at least try!

    Woot! Hope you have a great time!

    Try to find the joy in each moment passing. Even the things that don’t happen according to plan are all a part of the start of the rest of your lives together. Honor each moment, even if it’s not what you expected, as something that will be a part of that in your memories.

    You know where to find me if you need to freak out or something. I also work cheap if there’s someone you want to get rid of.

    Drugs? Did someone say drugs?

    Why do brides get their hair done 8 hours before the wedding? I’ve always wondered (and I did my own hair that day so…)

    Amanda – That’s the plan!

    Gwen – I know, you’ll be in the back alley right?

    Jen – Seems crazy early to me.

    Bucky – That has already passed.

    Tara – Well technically I am setting my hair the night before with curlers because my hair is so fine. We are going early because there will be 5 other people besides me.
