It’s been a crazy past couple of days. I am exhausted. It’s finally quiet, and I’m sitting here in my apartment watching the rain. It’s good that it’s raining – our thirsty earth needs it. I hope it continues to rain, lots, and maybe help pull us out of the drought.
My mom, sister, and grandmother arrived on Friday, up for a weekend visit. They threw a bridal shower for me on Saturday, where a good time was had by all. We played fun games and opened presents. The upside of having guests is you have to think about meals. I’m not handy enough in the kitchen to be able to prepare a meal smoothly without guests, so when you add a few more people into the mix, I just get overwhelmed. It all turned out okay, though. (Thanks to a dear helpful fiance!!)
In preparation for visitors, Paul and I did some major cleaning of the apartment. We took everything out of the closet and reorganized it. Much needed! Before, we couldn’t even enter the huge walk-in closet. Now, everything is neatly piled up in an orderly fashion so I can once again find things. The next step is to get RID of things to make way for the wedding gifts we have been given! We have so much useless junk… (Along with much of America…)
A lot of what’s been going on has been wedding plans. Next Saturday is when all the RSVPs are due, and then I get to bug the 145 people I have not heard from. (Many of them, I know, read this blog… so if it’s you then kindly RSVP. :-)) So, as activities increase in the next 5 (5!!!) weeks, I’m sure I will be posting less. So many things left to do, so little time… I’m getting stressed just thinking about it!
