Except for the aftermath. House is still piled with boxes. And there is too much tempting cake sitting around. Anyway, it was a pretty wedding and the reception was really elegant. I held up ok - another day I'll be rested. My daughter looked stunning - well, we all looked pretty good - amazing what dressing up will do for people! Will post pics soon I hope - I found one camera that the card had been removed from and my trusty Sony Mavica - someone had destroyed the tip of the charger and I couldn't charge it, so I had to rely on the photographer, who happened to be wonderful taking the pics. Now, if we can get them back quickly - he took lots. The ones of the boy were exceptional.
They are on a short honeymoon then will have to move in with us until their house is finished. Oh, dear Lord, hurry the workers.
I didn't shed but maybe 3 or 4 tears - my oldest daughter was the one that cried. The groom's oldest son cried, but then its only been about a year and one-half since his mother died, so it must have been really hard for him, although he likes my daughter.
So, how is a down-home grits 'n country, it is what it is, family going to meld with a green, organic, overly analytical bookworm family? Dunno. Time will tell.
I had a great time with groom's boss and her husband, and sure did enjoy visiting around with people...for a latent shy person, I was very social. It must have been the jewel-encrusted silver flip flops - had magic in them? Three glasses of wine?
Now, I have to make a lot of appointments this month for eye exam, back-related, some business related, school for the boy, then surgery - then hopefully, I can be NORMAL and start getting lots of things done that I need to do for myself to get out of the overwhelmed pattern which I've been running in circles this year, and last. Been falling down on Doc Lovely's program, but at least I am holding. So far. Need to get back on track and make it a priority. Tomorrow - first thing.
