"Because they each want to be unique and stand out in their own way."
"Then why don't they have separate weddings and be uniquely normal?"
"I vote you ask that question tonight at the family planning meeting."
"Seriously, this is getting silly! We have to have two entry points because they can't both travel down the same way. Plus, they can't agree on the same number of friends to stand up with them."
"Oh, you must be behind.. They are now color coding their friends and the over flow will help to seat and cover DJ and cake and camera duties."
"Oh yes, they are now fighting over the disposable camera solution so we may yet be on the hook to find a photographer, which is going to be fun since we have just over a week until the wedding."
"We had a photographer!! They fired the photographer together! That was the only thing they have agreed upon this entire time!"
"Lori honey, you are preaching to the choir here... I was right there when they did it. But now they both don't agree that disposable cameras will capture all the fine points of their wedding and the kids might get ahold of them and waste them. "
"So we watch the cameras and tell the kids up front to not touch them and let the adults take the pictures. We can't change course now, it's just too late for them to change their minds."
"Couldn't agree with you more... You going to tell them?"
"No.. I am calling Jay and electing him to tell them."
"Bet ya a glass of Merlot he calls Alex and makes him do it."
"Are we talking your good Merlot you have hidden downstairs or the cheap stuff in the rack in the kitchen?"
"Hey now, that is just... Oh fine, the good stuff."
"You are on!"
This was the conversation Lori and I had yesterday afternoon on the phone... I will be sitting down with a glass of her best Merlot this evening (she doesn't hide her good stuff like I do), as Alex had a REALLY bad headache last night after telling the ladies they must use disposable cameras and move on. Easy bet for me... :0)
The wedding is March 8th and it IS in our backyard!! I won't even get into the family drama that made that happen. Needless to say I have been swamped busy the last few weeks trying to keep our schedules moving and not losing my mind with all the wedding drama. We even had a groom faint dead away last weekend during one of our "family planning meetings". Yes, this family is not for the faint of heart! I seriously wanted to have a shirt made saying that and pass it out at the next meeting, but Alex said no. Grrrrrrr. He is just no fun!
The teenagers have a pool going (one they don't think we adults know about, aren't they just adorably cute and naive still...) on if one or both the grooms don't just make a run for it... I would love to put money down on the odds of the fainter making a run for it, but I guess that would just be a bit wrong.. Sigh.
It has been a while since I posted so wanted to make a quick post to let the few that come by know I am still here.. Just crazy busy with this wedding drama. I would love to report that the amount of drama and crazy has helped to keep me out of trouble...But sadly it would seem that I am not capable of staying out of trouble anymore. I kept telling myself that it was a just a phase or the time of year was playing into things.. But I have now just come full circle that I am no longer capable of staying out of trouble and honestly I don't even care. Maybe it is my age or just the point of life I am in... Alex doesn't seem to be all that put out either and assures me no matter what I throw his way he will be able to handle. I tried to tell him maybe he just needed a vacation and that he was just overly HOHy lately.. But neither of us really went with that theory. I can feel a change in myself and can't really say what has made me want to push the boundaries more, but I am.. Not in a major way that is unsafe or damaging to our marriage or family. But I am pushing... Sassy could be my middle name. Plus having Lori and even Jay down the street has made me feel more like my younger self I think too. I got into trouble the other week with Jay.. He is an HOH and led me astray, yup I blame him!! (Are you falling for that? Yeah, Alex didn't either and Jay didn't look at all sorry about it.)
Ok, I am off to head home and to my lovely glass of wine with Lori... I promise to post and let everyone know how the wedding ends up and maybe post about the trouble Jay got me into. :0)
