I'm a Catholic homeschooling mama of seven kids. Four are adults now, and living at various stages of life out of the house. Two of my adult daughters are getting married this year. Here's where I'll be hanging out my laundry, gaining perspective, and, down the road, have something to remember all the wooshing days.

A Twist in the Plot

Not only do the mammals family of Landrys have two daughters getting married this year, but our dear friends have a son getting married this year as well.

So us westcoasters are travelling (by plane) across the country, that's 4884 kilometers (3035 miles for my US readership)  in the middle of April,  we do emceeing and flowers (I am a florist before I had a  life filled with children)...then we come back April 19 with only days to spare before our own daughter's wedding May 2.

Yup.  Then our festivitives begin.  Fortunately, Polly's wedding is only an hour away, and the reception is merely five minutes from our home.

A short summer reprieve for the summer months, and then we DRIVE back across the country - STILL 4884  kilometers...to the wedding in Ottawa of our other daughter in September.

So, just doing some quick math here, but we are darn close to 20,000 km, one way or another, to go to significant weddings in our lives.

Just to put things in perspective, that's farther than going to Sydney, Australia and back.

I haven't the time.

Rosebud's joke of the day.  "What is black and white and dangerous?"

"A poisonous oreo cookie."

  1. Dear, dear... A pity those two back-east couples didn't coordinate their romances a little better!
