observations of the last twenty four hours

3:45pm – 4:30pm: Many people wandering around.  Saw Fred and Albert and Amy.  Saw the bride and groom.  Jess was distressed about the cake sliding around on the board.  She fixed it.  She is an genius.  Took W & R to the van.  They played with toys and read books.  No wandering around in a fixed environment to cause trouble.

5:30pm – Arrived at the hotel.  No problems and we rushed around to get the kids ready for the evening.  Problem!  No pants.  Left them in the dryer back home.  Ugh!  I took off to Target.  Found some that will do.  Traveled back to the hotel.  Ironed pants.  Dressed.  Minimal impact of the side trip.  We left at 6:25pm.

6:40pm – Arrived at the church.  Walked around to the front of the building.  Saw the Todds.  Sat with the Balbuenas and Martha.  Good to see dear friends.  Waited and listened to beautiful music.

7:05pm – Wedding started.  Christ glorifying service.  Good reminders from Pastor C about marriage to all of us married.  Left the sanctuary to attend the celebration reception.

8:15pm – Chatted with Michael T, Tyrone L, Coty and Ed.  Very dear brothers to me.  Wedding party entered.  Beautiful dancing from young girls from Bhutan.  Delicious food.  R sleeps.  R is transferred to Martha.  R doesn’t budge.  She is out for the count.

9:30pm – Wedding cake is served.  Good compliments.  Jess helps and cuts the cake.  Transferred to the plates.  Toasts.  Skits.  Fun.

11:00pm – Depart for hotel.  Arrive.  Next door is loud.  Obnoxious.  What is new?  It is Charlotte afterall.  Loud noises continue through the night.  Little sleep.

7:45am – Awake.  Decide against Hampton free breakfast.  Settle for OPH.  Glad we did.

11:00am – Stops at Office Max for some org tools and Petsmart for W some fish.  He wants 3 neons.  We get 3 neons.

12:45pm – Home!  Relax.  What’s next?
