What I have been up to
Well, the 1st part of the year totally got away from me. My son and future daughter in law had picked August 8th as their wedding day, with the thought that my daughter, who would be serving in the Peace Corp by then, would be able to come back for the wedding. On Feb 15th, they announced that they would get married in March instead. I'm thinking, oh 6 more months to get ready, that will work........no Mom we mean March 2009 on the 8th. AAAAAAAAHHHH.. but this way my daughter could be at her brother's wedding since she leaves after that for the Peace Corp. So in three weeks time, in between tests, term papers and finals, we planned a beautiful wedding, 4 bridesmaids, flower girl and ring bearer, found a church, I altered 3 bridesmaids dresses, remade the flower girl dress, the basket, the veil, and my dear friend created a beautiful cake. The wedding was beautiful, the bride beautiful, the groom estatic, and I was not totally exhausted. During this too, 1/2 of my department at work was laid off, so a little more stress was added. But it all worked and that is what counts!
