Well, it’s been a hot minute since I posted, but honestly I didn’t have the energy to do one more thing for the last two months. My daughter got engaged to a very nice young man, but they had a conundrum. His job in the first of October was about to change to very long hours, so he wouldn’t be able to get married until January, maybe later. Of course, there was about seven weeks before this would happen at the time, so my daughter looked at me and said, “I don’t want to be engaged for months on end,” which I translated to mean, Mommy, you have six weeks to make this wedding happen.
Crazy as that sounds, I actually pulled it off, and the reception was lovely. I’m so grateful to all the people who helped me accomplish what felt like the rush of the century, but seeing my daughter so very happily married made it all worth it. And since she’s my only daughter, I figure I won’t have to do nearly as much for my sons wedding days, whenever those happen. Here’s hoping, because, people, that was exhausting!
