The commentluv itself worked - sort of - but the posts were not in order and it was too confusing for even my most hardy commenters.
Meanwhile, on the wedding front...
I know, its all wedding all of a sudden - 'Salina did successfully turn 9, V has successfully returned to work and I am consumed with feeding them,
I know I don't talk about my work here because really - how riveting is it for you that I entered a few logging sheets and put a few graphics on a few pages, fixed a few forms and analysed some statistics today?
So, my all consuming passion apart from this today was working out who is going on which table. Whee.
Do you put all the marrieds together?
Should I scatter the very sparse male representation across the room?
Is it okay to just have a spare seat on each table for V and I to hop and just ditch the whole "sacrificial alter" thing?
We have no wedding party except from 'Salina - our witnesses are guests - and she is very keen to be queen of the kids tables.
While it would be nice to just have a tete-a-tete with V, I don't like the goldfish bowl thing.
There are people in our family who could probably be up there - but it is a large family and I want them to be on tables with guests.
I want to be on tables with guests.
I am not stressing. Yet.
Ah, that is better - I just typed a whole psychobabble about something and then deleted it.
Suffice to say, I am glad I got it out onto the screen - and I am glad you didn't have to read through it!
8 more sleeps. Sister outlaw and favourite cousin arrive on the train tomorrow.
They can't make the wedding so they are having some special time with us before.
Besides being a really cool person, sister outlaw is a professional cleaner always in need of cash, and I am happen to have some aside for some professional housecleaning (I am very much in the part-time amateur field) it is a fortuitous combination.
Favourite cousin has been best friends with 'Salina since she was 3 months in-utero. Sister outlaw worked out her pregnancy status at my party where we announced 'Salina.
Shoe shopping tomorrow. I hate shoe shopping. Bra shopping too. Ditto. Thank goodness sister-outlaw is in town tomorrow afternoon - a bright spot to look forward to.
Sister-out-law and favourite cousin are visiting and helping with a house blitz on the weekend.
Try to fit a week's work into Monday.
All things hair on Tuesday.
The first wave of help arrives Wednesday - friends and family.
Everyone is offering to help but I have no idea what tasks to set.
All I have left to contemplate is shoes, flowers and bras, really.
