Lots to do....don't know what I was thinking when I originally scheduled to see a customer in Elon College this AM. I called and cancelled it this AM. If I had gone, I would have gotten back about 45 minutes ago, and I've already spent the morning running around getting stuff done...picking up the suit, checking proofs of the bulletin, stoping by the store....off again to run more errands.

This week has gone by so quickly. Saturday afternoon, Becky and I will be getting married, and even though I thought we had done a good job of getting things planned out and/or farming decisions out to parents and other folks, there's so much that has to get done, decided or dealt with somehow in the next day and a half. I had naivelyplanned to go out and see a customer tomorrow morning, but I'm going to call them first thing tomorrow and reschedule. Hey -- this is the first time I've done this whole wedding thing, and I thought we had a good handle on things. It would seem, however, that I overestimated our ability to either plan ahead or delegate. Lots to do. Right now, though, what I need to do is sleep. Unfortunately, my brain hasn't quite gotten the message and keeps on coming up with other things that I need to do tomorrow which I then feel the need to get up and write down so I don't forget them which wakes me up enough that I have to take some time to get sleepy again at which point I think of something that I need to do tomorrow which I then feel the need to write down.......

I'm going to try....again....to sleep now.

Dance high

Becky and I hosted a contra dance in celebration of our upcoming wedding (next Saturday!) today. We had neither of us tried to put something like this together before so weren't sure how things were going to work out. Were we going to have too few people -- or too many (the hall wouldn't comfortably hold more than 80 or so). As it turns right the numbers weren't too many or too few -- they were just right. We ended up with around 50 people, all friends of ours from dancing. We had wonderful music from House Red and amazing calling from Louie Cromartie. 50 experienced dancers...wonderful music and calling. It all added up to a fabulous afternoon with friends that sent all of us into a great dance high.

After the dancing was done, we had a potluck supper and had a relaxing time visiting with friends, giving our feet a rest and enjoying the beautiful evening. What a wonderful way to start the celebration of our wedding!

I had appointments scheduled this morning in Winston-Salem and Greensboro and didn't want to have to get up at the crack of dawn to make it to them, so last night, Becky and I drove over to Greensboro. We had a nice dinner at her mom's house, spent some time opening wedding presents, and then Becky drove the volvo home because she thinks she has a buyer for it. Unfortunately, when she drove home, she also had the keys to my car in her purse. So, I'm left here in Greensboro. My demo equipment is locked in my car. My keys are 60 miles away in Durham and Becky is at work at Duke until 2:30. I got a message to Becky this AM and she tried to call me back on my cell phone. Did I mention that Becky's mom's house is in a cell phone hole? The only way I can get a signal is to go out into the middle of the road and stand there waiting for the phone to find a tower. So B and I passed messages back and forth and finally got in touch around lunchtime. She's going to come over as soon as she gets done at work...getting here around 3:45 or so. I've cancelled all but one of my appointments and will reschedule them next week, but I will still get to pick up the sound equipment so that we can host our wedding contra dance on Sunday afternoon.

Just got back from a dinner party at my future father-in-law's house. This was a dinner group that he and Becky's step mom have been in for years. Quite a group. I always enjoy spending time with Bill and Linda (the in-laws), but it's been a long time since I was with a group that made me laugh so hard, and so often that my face hurt!! It was really good to get to meet them in a smaller group (most of them will be coming to the wedding, but I don't harbor illusions that I'm actually going to get to spend much time talking to folks for any extended period of time at the wedding (probably won't have time to eat much either...)) so it was really nice to get to talk to them this evening when we had time.

Right now, though, it's almost 1:00 AM and I have to be up for choir tomorrow and be at church by 9:00. Ugh. Time for bed.

(20 days until the wedding.)
