Well, yesterday we got another wedding invitation, which we weren’t expecting, and today we got another graduation invitation, which we were. That brings the tally up to five weddings and two graduation ceremonies in May and June–no, only 4 weddings, I was counting one already past. But still… Considering that they are all out of state (one clear down on the gulf coast) except for one nice easy in-town wedding, it’s looking a bit big. Actually, we might have had another wedding to go to, but they called it off–is it awful to say that I’m relieved? ( Not only for my own sake actually–I think they were wise to reconsider.)
Add that to the fact that we have a weekend-long family reunion 8 hours away, plus multi-day church conference 5 hours away, also both in May. Can you guess how many days in May we will actually be HOME??? I have been dreading May for months, and now it’s almost here.
We actually should be hosting our own graduation reception for my lovely daughter, who has finished her homeschooling, but with the crazy schedule, we have decided to put it off. Everything is happening in May! Why, oh, why, didn’t we get with it and do that back in the winter before things got busy? She actually finished quite a while ago. Ah, well, hindsight is always so much clearer. I never have been good at planning ahead.
Anyway, I am going to sit down with a calendar and see how it’s all going to work. It all begins next weekend, and I need to look at the details. I’ve been scaring myself with it for weeks, so maybe when I get things all mapped out, I’ll find out it’s not so bad.
Right. I’ll believe it when I see it.
