Well, this crazy weekend is over. I coordinated my Cousin Tim’s wedding and I can proudly say, it went off without a hitch. I am very happy that Tim found someone who will always be there for him. Years ago, Tim lost his sight and I know it has been quite a struggle for him and his family. I am glad that he persevered and realized that he too is worthy of love. Everyone is, I think.
The bad part of the weekend was Naaman’s speeding ticket. We got it after speeding home after the wedding was over. We were both pretty upset about it. I just hate those stupid flashing lights and the way the police treat people, as though we are horrible criminals.
That night we went out to my parents’ house as all four sisters and their counterparts were visiting for the wedding and we all got to hang out. All ten of us played Scategories and as always, it was a hilarious and fun time! My family loves board games. Naaman and I came in third place out of five couples. Better luck next time.
As we were driving home, we saw a cop ready to pounce anyone speeding. Naaman quickly flashed his lights to warn others. Suddenly, the flashing lights were behind us again. We were both so confused as he wasn’t speeding. The cop approached and told us that Naaman had flashed his headlights at him. OOPS! Apparently Naaman didn’t see that it was a policeman driving down the road. He wrote us a ticket because I guess it’s illegal and he was SO rude and obnoxious. He was all of 21-years-old and obviously loving his new police power trip. I cried and cursed a lot (afterwards, of course). Naaman was trying to be a good Samaritan and we get slammed with another ticket. CRAP! Two tickets in one day. UnFREAKINGbelievable!
The next day we went to find bridesmaid dresses for my sister Cindi’s wedding. We found a really pretty one that doesn’t make us feel frumpy at all and it will come in pale yellow. We will all carry a bouquet of beautiful red roses. I can’t wait. I think it’s going to be just as beautiful as our wedding. The church is just gorgeous! And I know Cindi will be the Belle of the Ball. She is finally okay after her surgery. She showed me her stapled stomach and I almost threw up. My stomach gets really queasy with anything and everything.
Tonight, we are going out to dinner with our friends, Ryan and Rebecca, who just got married two weekends ago and are expecting their first child in late July. We are all shopping for houses so it should be the hot topic of conversation. Plus, I’m sure we’ll talk about their little kiddo who is on the way.
Now I’ll ask for your prayers. Our precious baby girl, Roxie, goes in for surgery tomorrow to fix one of her hind legs. We are very scared and worried for her. Please say a prayer that her surgery goes well and she heals quickly. She deserves to be able to be able to play like the adorable puppy she is.
