Aaannnd they’re off! I feel like the race has started. It is two weeks until Lindz’ wedding and two weeks until the art show (that I am in charge of). Today, I have several errands to run concerning both events. I am trying to finish a painting and I need to mat and frame some other pieces, not to mention the "putting on the show" stuff.
This evening is Lindz’ personal shower/bacherlorette party. Jesse is putting the shindig on and has needed my help. Among other things, yesterday I painted a "pin the bouquet on the bride" poster, and helped her carve pumpkins into a "bride and groom" for party decorations. Gutting the pumpkins and carving them was no easy job. I got Jesse going on them, and then she finished them. She complained that "the face was crooked" on the bride pumpkin. Good Grief! She just called and asked me to make a sign for the bride’s chair. I just laughed at her. She said, "Mom, I’m trying to make this special!" Yeah, Yeah, but these last minute things are killing me. And yet, I will do my duty to Lindz and Jes, to make this the most memorable shower and wedding possible.
I’d better get going if I am to finish this race. I will try to have some pics of the events sometime this weekend.
