As the biggest thing in my life currently is WeddingLand (27 days and counting), the following update about my life will deal primarily with that. If you don't want to read it, then don't.
Last week looked like it was going to end on a bad note. My wedding coordinator/role model had to back out of the wedding, leaving me to find somebody capable of corralling both Posse's, both families, and a couple hundred people with only a month to go. I have not yet succeeded at this task, but I have some good leads. This is yet another opportunity to remember and practice my motto: "As long as I end up married, everything else can go diddle itself." Thanks to some awesome friends (shoutout to Ricky and Jess!), the week ended happily with the arrival of our first wedding present. They did an awesome job of zeroing in on the thing that would turn my funk around -- I have friends from all over the country (literally), who are coming in to celebrate with me. Not only that, my best friend ever is flying in for a three week sabbatical from Nicaragua (where she's working to start up and run a library) to help me get everything together.
Seriously, how lucky am I?
This weekend gets a gold star on the productivity chart. Beej and I are taking possession of our new apartment on Thursday, so we had a lot of paperwork and first inspections to do. I really love our place. It's bright and airy, and I got to meet a couple of our new neighbors. They have a black and white bulldog, so we'll get along really well.
In other news, congrats to Genny and Kim who took the FE this past weekend and I am sure rocked it. I raise my imaginary glass to them.
Time to go knock out some more tasks on my to do list. Remember to drink your Ovaltine, kids.
