Big day coming (no not the book)


One important count down starts for me today. One week from today my baby boy is to be married.  We fly to New York next Saturday. I’m really looking forward to the wedding, not so much the traveling to get there, but you do want you have to.

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.

So excited for you...and for LJ and Colin! Easier said than done but 'breath woman'...everything will get done. Just a suggestion...take the big suitcase and pack everything you think you might need...will save you freaking when you get there because you've forgotten something...you can also pack implements. ;) BTW...see if you can get Nick to give you some 'stress-relief' this week.

Be here when you can but you know this crew...no expectations.

Sending lots of calming energy and positive thoughts your way.

Hugs and Blessings...
Cat

So excited for you all PK! Will be thinking of you all and look forward to hearing all about the wedding. How sweet of LJ to be worried that you may be disappointed.

As Cat said, maybe you could try getting Nick to give you some stress relief.

Hugs,
Roz

Oh PK you are going to have a wonderful time, dear, don't worry about the flight! It'll all be great!

Now - you need a big suitcase with lots of different permutations! I am a "siege packer", believe me I know all about these things! Oh PK, it is going to be soooo exciting! You are going to enjoy every minute! Don't forget a hanky!

Take lots of photos!

Many hugs

Cat,
I'll probably go with the big one, but I like know everything is within arms reach and not lost somewhere.

Roz,
LJ is a great boy - truly. Stress relief won't really be possible, Mollie is rooming with us. Oh well.

 
At 10:33 PM, Blogger PK said...

Thanks Mona,
This should be a truly different experience and I'm really looking forward to it.

Abby,
You do know about teaching - planning for a sub is just no fun. I promise you'll hear all about it.

Thanks Ana.

I know you will Paul and I love you for it

 
At 10:35 PM, Blogger PK said...

Ronnie,
I'm having a hard time picturing it all and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

 
At 10:39 PM, Blogger PK said...

George,
I know you all went through more than I have if your daughter married - thankfully I had nothing to do getting this wedding ready. I'm gratefully just an honored guest. Thanks for the positive vibes.

 
At 10:41 PM, Blogger PK said...

Jan,
It will probably be the big one - but Mollie will be in our room so not much chance of a spanking.

 
At 10:42 PM, Blogger PK said...

Thanks fondles,I'm pretty excited.

 
At 10:45 PM, Blogger PK said...

Ami,
My travels are usually by car - It's pretty easy to throw anything you think you MIGHT need into the car. That's why flying is so stressful. But I'm sure I can do it!

 
At 10:46 PM, Blogger PK said...

FD,
You are so sweet - I'm the lucky one to have LJ and Mollie and, of course, Colin.

 
At 10:47 PM, Blogger PK said...

Blondie,
I know it will be and I look forward to telling you all about it out here.

 
At 10:47 PM, Blogger PK said...

Thanks Rogue, This should be some trip.

 
At 10:48 PM, Blogger PK said...

Terps,
It will all be done. Edits are complete and I even did some cleaning tonight in anticipation of getting everything packed.

 
At 11:01 PM, Blogger Katie said...

Hi PK! :) It will all be wonderful! Just pack that bag and enjoy! All the best to LJ and Colin! Have fun at the wedding. The rest- it will all work itself out. Many hugs,

<3 Katie

Thanks Katie,
You have no idea how much the support I've received has meant to me. Three people in real life that I believed would always support me have turned their back on me in this matter. Its interesting to see the people who really support you. Thanks again.
