Some random highlights from the weekend...
On Saturday we did the golfing over at Notre Dame:
And stopped at the Lowe's for vegetation for JB's Happy Place:
There were the usual holiday weekend fixins....burgers and brats and salads and whatnot. I think I might have managed a big breakfast in there someplace too.
Last night we joined some friends for a baseball game at Four Winds Field. The South Bend Cubs took on the Ft Wayne Tin Caps.
(Can you believe I've been to TWO baseball games featuring the Ft Wayne Tin Caps in the space of three weeks?)
(The Tin Caps are named for the Disney depiction of Mr Johnny Appleseed His Very Self, who was reported to wear his cooking pot on his head as a hat.)
I even wore makeup and lipstick...a trial run before the wedding next weekend. It was cool, so I don't know if it will be melt-proof, but...say la vee, Dearies. Say la vee.
(My big fat face looks bigger and fatter because my haircut ended up much shorter than I anticipated, but anything is better than the geriatric squirrel thing I had going on.)
Four more sleeps until we head over to Lima! In between them will be lots of fretting and wringing of hands and worrying about not making a spectacle of myself before my brain swats my overinflated ego with the reality that the wedding is NOT about me, and absolutely nobody will give a tinker's damn if I puddle my dress shields before the I do's are finalized.
(That's the best part of being an anxiety flop sweater...the more you stress about it...the more you sweat.)
(Nope...couldn't have gotten THAT gene from my mom. She couldn't create a bead of perspiration if her life depended on it. Instead, I get the gene that makes me look like a plow horse after a long 110 degree day working the back forty.)
Tomorrow I go for my first facial laser treatment to see what we can do about my beard, mustache, sideburns, and old lady dark spots...so wish me luck that they don't break the machine tackling my mess. I've been assured that they've seen women with worse, but that was probably in a circus sideshow someplace.
So that's it. A week of pictures and now I'm back to babbling my nonsense all over the place. Don't worry...I'll probably go back to the all-picture format this week and next while I'm in Godmother of the Bride mode and recovery.
What's new in your corner of the world? If you're stateside an observing Memorial Day I hope it is a safe, peaceful, restful day off. Come tell me all about it...no matter which state you're beside!
