can't imagine what my son and daughter in law must be feeling but i bet they are even more dead tired than i could ever be.it was a GREAT weekend...it was GREAT wedding...glad it is over.
i got home around 2ish..laura stayed with our guys so no one was lonely. i cannot possibly thank all of the volunteers (this includes angelina who came on both of her days off) for shouldering my responsibilities for the past few days so i could do the mommy thing. you are all wonderful kind and caring people and i would be screwed to the wall in so many ways if there wasn't you guys here to look after us.
thank you isn't really even close enough for everything you do.
and back to business..my family is all leaving today, so i am hopping in to maple ridege to have breakfast with them. and then my ex's side of the family...grandma, grandpa, nieces and nephews, sister and brother and spouse, my daughters and partners are all coming out to saints at noon for a tour.
i so enjoyed watching my daughters (who were really beautiful last night) dancing with their little cousins..the boys had a blast and my girls did too....AND i thoroughly enjoyed watching my son and his wife dance the first dance with a foxtrot..they both took lessons before the wedding..i never thought i would see my son foxtrot in public. and ang was beyond beautiful..she looked like a 40's movie star. my ex's band played for the wedding and my daughter sang a few songs with them too and i haven't gotten to hear her sing for so long, i forgot how truly good she is.
all of his high school friends were there...i heard alot of "hi mrs. hine"...all of them slept on our floor many times and i caught most of them at one time or another, smoking pot in the garage, (which used to piss me off..i am very anti-drug and anti-drunk...your mind is too precious too waste)...now they are all grown up fine...maybe they lost a few brain cells but they still did grow up ok...so that was nice to see.
anyway...i finished the weekend thing realizing one really big thing...i totally adore my kids...i totally adore their partners..i totally adore my brother and sisters and their partners and kids too..i even adore my ex's family (and was feeling somewhat warm and fuzzy towards him too since he quit pissing me off over the barbacue...he is joining us for breakfast)...i really missed the animals here but i knew they were in very safe hands with my human caregiving friends here...
i am lucky, i am blessed in every aspect of the life that surrounds me...past and present...
and thank god for that!!!!!!
and thank god the wedding weekend is almost done!!!! (tomorrow i am crashing and staying in bed after i deal with the jeremiah thing!)
oh...and the computer is really and truly dead...so that sort of sucks....got to have something sucking around me i guess.
if we are really lucky..maybe the volunteers will post some of their stories below on how it felt to be me here...i think laura has the full bed suction cup routine down cuz they were all not to be missing their necessary suctioning!
