It Begins

Wedding Plans that is.

Right now, we are looking at towards the end of July to get married. It is a strong possibility that we will be getting married in my home church. Ben and I will fill out the application on Sunday, and submit it on Monday. We would like to have a Saturday afternoon wedding to avoid being so tired, but we will see what is available.

I have two leads on places to have the reception, which I will be calling about today. Making phone calls is another difficult thing to do right now. I have forty minutes each day that I can make calls in which people would be in the office for business hours. This is not helpful at chipping away at the mountain of things that need to get done. I have a feeling my parents and Ben will be making quite a few phone calls for me.

My sister wants me to go to a bridal fair on Sunday afternoon. It is not that I'm not interested, it is just that I have so much to do. When I go there, I'm going to realize just how much MORE I need to do. Not sure if I can handle that knowledge right now!

My kids loved the story of Ben and I getting engaged. He told it to them while they were eating cupcakes yesterday during lunch. I am hopeful that quite a few of them can come to my wedding. Tomorrow is the worst field trip of the year: The Louisville Orchestra. The Orchestra itself is not bad, but how the trip is ran is mismanaged. It always makes for a "fun" morning. When I taught at another school, we always drew straws for who got to "stay behind" and watch the bad kids. Too bad that is not an option here, or I'd certainly jump at the chance!

One last thing: I am so over FROST. I can handle the cold for a bit longer, but I'm tired of cleaning off my car each morning and having to warm it up forever.

I didn't set out for this post to be a complaining one. I guess I had a lot to get off my chest. I'm not really in bad mood or anything. Enjoy the day!

Just out of curiosity, when you say the Louisville Orchestra field trip is mismanaged, what exactly do you mean? I work with the Orchestra, and am interested in making all of our patrons experiences positive. It would seem that it isn't the Orchestral or theatrical experience, but rather a child management issue. Is it something on the Orchestra's side that can be handled in a better way? What can WE do to improve your experience?
