Nothin' Wrong With Me

I go to my firstborn's wedding in three days.  I just ordered the gifts yesterday (thank God for Amazon Prime), I have not bought a dress or shoes.  Three days ago, I bought false eyelashes and nails, neither of which I've EVER worn and don't know how to work.  Two nights ago, I came downstairs in the dark for water and stepped wrong on the last step, pulled something in my foot and I'm limping.  Had an argument with my family about going or not going "home" where I was raised the day after the wedding.  I'm going.  Why?  Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha......Because we already booked the hotel and it's non-refundable and BY GOD we're going.  That's a quote from my beloved.  ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

The wedding is on the family farm, outside and, ha ha ha ha ha......it's spring in Oklahoma.  Spring is rainy season.  It's been raining for a week, on and off, there, more expected today.  This is how I picture this going:  I will limp in my heels on uneven, wet, muddy farm ground, fall down and get up with ruined hose and dress, weird caterpillar eyelashes half off, missing four or five fake nails, and hear, "Let's get the groom's family in an official picture.".  Yep, I'm pretty sure that is how this will go.  :)  EYE ROLL

 

I'm alright.  I've got this.  Those are lies, but............I'm gonna give it a shot.  Beats cowering at home.  Worst case scenario:  it's a story to tell.  Humiliation and embarrassment haven't killed me yet, though I thought they might at times, doubt it will this time.  :)

    That does sound like Murphy’s style.

      Goofball! I will try. No, strike that. I WILL. My baby has love in his life, a woman he loves, one who loves him. That’s all that matters.

    Going home – but first the wedding. I got to Austin to attend my son’s wedding, got out my beautiful new suit (Yellow jacket and Navy skirt with Yellow flowers) and found a big pen mark on the back of the jacket. Called the hotel office and requested cleaning pick-up and was told they didn’t handle that and didn’t know where there was a 24-hr. cleaner. Helpful, eh? So - I bit the bullet and put my brand-new, never-worn, not washable jacket into a sink full of water and washed out the ink with hand soap. Hung it up to dry, quivering at the thought of shrinkage, but in the morning there was my beautiful yellow jacket all clean and dry. Only needed a little touch-up with the iron. Yay! If I ran a hotel like that, I’d be ashamed of myself.
