My grandpa arrived home from the hospital this afternoon following a 2-day stay. They determined that he had a small stroke 4 or 5 days prior. Luckily, it didn’t do much damage and I think he’ll recover fine. Some diet alterations and medication should do the trick.
I’m looking fervently for gray heels for the wedding I’m in next month. One major problem is that I’m quite cheap, which you all know. Most everything I find that I love is Christian Louboutin. Yeah, that’s not gonna work. I’m prepared to pay no more than $30. DSW had one pair of gray heels. No, not one style. One pair. Size 8 1/2. No good.
I’m really enjoying browsing Pinterest for shower and wedding ideas. Man, everyone who got married before Pinterest should get a wedding re-do! I would really enjoy planning my own wedding with the resources available in this day and age. Actually, I would probably waste an awful lot of time staring at a glowing screen if I was getting married.
|Yep, he has a beard right now.|
My family’s food pickiness is getting no better, which is another thing frustrating me. Anyone want to Wife Swap for a while? Preferably a mom who makes her kids eat fresh veggies every meal. Maybe my family would learn to appreciate me more afterward.
If you’ve been a reader for a while, you know about my annual May Banquet. Thankfully, I just secured a venue for this year. It’s a beautiful, CLOSE restaurant that we used to utilize often many years ago. Something happened, no one can remember what, and we quit patronizing them. My mom and I had lunch there last week and it was awesome. The prices are about the same as the delicious, but rude restaurant we used for about 15 years. Last year, because we were mad at them, we hosted the Banquet at our church. Two words – NEVER AGAIN. The best part is, while I started questioning the banquet coordinator about all the things the picky restaurant is difficult about, she didn’t have a strong opinion. She is going to be so much easier to work with and I’ll save 25 minutes (each way) on the drive. Looks like a win-win situation for me! Let’s hope!
All that said, I still don’t have a theme or many thoughts about what I’m going to do. Any suggestions? I was thinking maybe something along the lines of Downton Abbey or the Great Gatsby. That time period is so popular right now (even though I’ve never seen the show or movie associated with the aforementioned), and I think it will be fun. Maybe focus on 100 years ago…calling it 1914 or something. Can I make it funny? I guess I could do a spoof on today’s technology and say how easy life would be if you could telephone someone while on a carriage journey. Who knows. Some previous themes have been Peculiar Princesses, From Paris with Love, The Wild West, and Under the Sea. One more side note- this is a production put on by a group of teenage girls. I write, produce, and direct it. Then I need a vacation.
I’m sure I’ve babbled long enough at this point. My new version of Word just informed me that I reached 1000 words at this point. Thanks, Microsoft. I knew I was wordy…you didn’t have to call me out on it. I just have a lot to say, hence the blog about nothing.
