the wedding

The wedding went fine. The weather mostly held off - but we were on a pier in Boston and there were 25 mph winds whipping through but then slowed down. The ceremony went mostly smoothly but reason 8,000,347 not to have a dog in your ceremony - he barked through the first half and then threw up (NOT KIDDING) on the runner between the bride and groom's feet. The broke the ice, everyone laughed. We had fun.

I gave a toast which I stole off the internet and everyone liked it. I did personalize it - I think my sister was concerned I would be mean... I was nice. But I will say while we were dressing, I had my socks on and put my sandals over them just to tick her off... All her friends laughed and she looked at me and said 'absolutely not'. Sometimes you never go past this sibling rivalry thing.

I discovered something - if I drink a lot and dance, my back doesn't hurt. I danced a little and then I drank. Then my back stopped hurting. I actually slept pretty well - but that might have something to do with the drinking. This morning we are off to have breakfast with the family - parents, cousin, brother, sister in law, and the kids. We will drive home after rush hour - what's the point of sitting in traffic? How's my back this morning? I danced. It hurts but it would hurt if I didn't dance so I might has well have fun sometime... I will post some wedding pictures soon.

Later today, I hope to get in some gardening if the damn rain would stop. It has rained and been dreary for days now. We had one nice day recently. This coming week is more cloudy dreary days. I have mushrooms in the back yard, front yard, and gardens. If I thought they were edible, I would have to buy any for weeks.

Actually once we go home and check on the cat, both of us think we will go to work for a bit this afternoon. The cat had a baby sitter who came last night and again this morning to give him his shot. And refill his food dish. He turned into an oinker...

Now that the wedding is over we return to our normal lives. This week entails working both jobs and seeing an old friend who will be in town from VA, and going to the back pain doctor. Maybe we do have kind of a life...

Well, Caroline, it sounds to me that you should simply take up hard drinking!
