The Big Race

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.

re: shower and art show...

Ah. "duty and obligation!" The phrase is one of those "ya hadda be there" thingies and was a family favorite for years and years, often said (most times seriously, sometimes not) in times when things got kinda crazy.

Becky, Jesse's wedding will probably be more of the simple, but elegant or the "do ya, do ya? Yeah! Yeah! Lets go to the party" wedding. Vegas may not be a bad idea either.

Diva, are you saying I am a showgirl?

Buck, "duty and obligation" indeed! Two more weeks and it will all be over - just in time for Thanksgiving!

Wow. Read this post and got so tired I had to go and have a nap.
I know you're not jealous, but it was delicious. Here, I saved a bit for you.

Thansks for the nap, Catmoves.

Jo, You know how preparing for an art show can be. Sometimes I wonder how I get myself into these things.
