Overload, Sensory and Other Sorts

I am the Queen of Multitasking.  I've been called that by people who have known me for years.  It irritates some who think that having a conversation while watching TV,  while texting, while Facebooking is not at all possible and cheats them in the conversation department.

Over the past month, I have been in multitasking hell, even though I haven't really wanted it.  I am exhausted on a daily basis.  Tonight, I was so tired, I actually asked Kelly to drive.  I never ask anyone to drive.  I am NOT a good passenger.

My nephew had his surgery yesterday.   He looks fantastic.  I hope he's on a better road in his recovery.  I still want to spend as much time with him as possible.  I'm back working as much as possible since I'm not spending any time in SC.  I'm in overdrive making wedding plans.  It's now just 26 days away.

I had a scary thought tonight.  Our wedding is going to be simple, informal, and intimate.  Our combined guest list was about 60 people.  If you think half or less actually show, then it's down right tiny.  My thought tonight is "What if nobody comes?"  I don't know why I thought that.  Please, God, don't let it be a premonition.  

I'll bring Bodequa with me.   She is fabulous enough to make up for an empty lawn on her own.  All better now.


  1. When my mother threatened to not attend my wedding, I realized that the only things REALLY necessary for the wedding were me, my fiance and the preacher. Everything else was just window dressing. That little realization freed me to breathe easily for the rest of the time up to the wedding. And my mother came after all.

  2. Oh, yes, we're having difficulties finding an officiant as well. I'm shaking my head reading that. Why on earth would a mother do that? Well, because our mothers do lots of things to torture us; some intentional, some not.
