Incommunicado, Part II

I have been having just too much fun this summer to blog. I guess that's a good thing, right? Every weekend has been full of sailing on Biscuit, work, or road trips. This blog is not the only thing on the back burner. It's in good company with housekeeping, bookkeeping, washing the car, and my sister would argue wedding planning. Our summers are so short that my priority, justifiably, is to have fun and enjoy as much as I can. It is exhausting, though. Summer is coming to a close soon and with it the hectic schedule, I hope. I am already having snowy, snowboarding longings.

This Labor Day weekend is my bridal shower. I'm excited to see my family and friends and eat cake! The reason for our get together seems kinda silly to me, though. What is a bridal shower? What are we celebrating here? Regardless of my confusion, I am going to have a good time.

Then, It's time to seriously get down to business with the wedding planning. I feel it is completely under control with my sister officially my official wedding coordinator. Nothing unofficial about it. I am the first to admit we are not big planners, Dennis and I. I am so grateful for the help.

Ugh! It's getting late (my late, like 9pm) and I'm losing steam. Can i get a raincheck for finishing this entry? Thanks! Goodnight.

Sorry Sis has been uncommunicative this last month. We've been dealing with the realm of the unknown with regard to Dad's estate. So frustrating not to know what you are doing.

In happier news, Sis has been busy planning her wedding, which is in less than two months! I can't believe how quickly time is flying and we haven't made any solid decisions yet! We do know the color palette and we've discussed decoraton ideas, but we haven't moved forward with much. I have made myself her unofficial wedding planner (much to her pleasure AND dismay, I am sure), so I keep emailing her lists of things to think about, snapshots of design ideas I've found.

Her bridal shower is in a couple of weeks, so I'm headed "home." I put that in parenthesis because home as I know it belongs to someoene else now and I will be camping out at Grandpa's with my folks. The walls should be up on their new home by the time I am there, so I'll be excited to see that. Let me know if you have any fun bridal shower game ideas we can play!

I'll encourage Sis to post and keep you informed of her progress. Her post-chemo hair is still wavy and super cute! She's going to be such a lovely bride.
