From One Thing to the Next

I took the day off Friday to help my mom get everything set up for the wedding and reception. That took the best part of the day, then I dashed home to make an emergency painting for a blank wall at the venue. Rehearsal and dinner - don't know exactly how it happened, but the waiter and I collided as he was serving the salad and I wound up with a lap full of sherry vinaigrette. I was madly hoping we did not encounter any stray dogs on the 2-block walk back to the truck.

Saturday - wedding. So far, so good with the marriage. I'll let you know. Above, the bridesmaids - my two girls and my four nieces. Not an ugly one in the bunch. So the bride and groom went on their way and we were left to pick up the pieces and cram them into every car, truck and bike we could find. There are still some candles in the back seat of my car.

Sunday - HEADACHE and soooo tired!!

Monday - all day set up for the annual corp-wide art show - pics later in the week - I promise! So much incredible work. 5 mile workout and back to meet and greet students and parents at the show.

Spring Break next week. Staying home. I'm glad.

Weekly World News

Okay, not really "world", but Lawrence County, Indiana. Did you hear about the tornados? Three of my students lost their entire homes - gone, gone, gone! Here is a link to video where two more of my students tell about being caught outside feeding cattle when the tornado hit.

It was confirmed on Monday that 2 tornados hit the LC. Thank the Good Lord there were no injuries or deaths.

Saturday, my little sister is getting married. She is 19 years younger than me. Same parents and everything, just one of those things. There is another sister between us, two years younger than me. I have had a devil of a time finding something to wear. Something I like, that is. I may have found a decent - as in, I don't throw up in my mouth when I look in the mirror - dress. This is my normal pattern:

1. Big Event coming up
2. I need to look nice. I want to look nice.
3. I browse catalogs, stores, magazines and the internet months and weeks in advance
4. I do not buy anything
5. The last minute arrives
6. I settle for something "okay" that I DO NOT love
7. I am crabby the day of the event because I KNOW I could look better
8. I tell myself it doesn't really matter and get on with the next thing in my life
9. Repeat at next Big Event

Anyway, big corp wide art show next week, which means over 100 pieces of artwork I need to mount, tag and transport to the venue. We hang the show Monday and it opens Monday at 6:00pm. I really don't have time for both things, but I can't get out of either.

Which one should I wear to my sister's wedding? Daytime wedding, with a black dress, not too dressy. I am not officially in the wedding. The colors are red, turquoise, black and white.
