This is my first child to marry and I am definitely looking forward to the event. LJ called the other night and one thing he shared was that, while there will be a cake, they won’t be having a traditional ‘cake cutting’. He seemed a tad worried that I’d be disappointed that they weren’t including that. I had to laugh.
I told him, “Son please don’t worry that I’m going to be upset if you leave out some ‘traditional’ wedding rituals. I think you pretty much threw out ‘traditional’ when you proposed to another man. We’re coming to celebrate your marriage. Feel free to surprise us with your own unique style. We’re looking forward to whatever makes you two happy.”
So this is a busy week for me, final-final edits of the book are due by Wednesday, I need to make my lists and check them three or four times, decide if I’m only taking a carry on, or the big suitcase, I’ll need to pack and then repack. I’ll still need to teach and get ready for my sub for next week. I’m stressing, no doubt.
That means I may not have time to be here much. But I need to be here, being here keeps me grounded and calm and sane – well as much as possible.
I do have a Fantasy Friday ready for next week and I have a good snippet for the Reading Room for next Saturday. I’m looking forward to sharing all about the wedding when we get back. Please keep us in your thoughts next Saturday as we travel up and Tuesday as we head home.
