we're back

We got back tonight...I flew alone with the kiddos and the really heavy suitcase that cost us an extra 50$ because it was too heavy. Note to self, kids are old enough for their own roller bags and instead of one gargantuan one we will all have our own smaller ones. Couple stupid things...I totally forgot to inform the school that Jake would be out...had a couple calls on my messages...woops. Thankfully, his teachers knew. Secondly, my computer is on restart mode, not shut off mode, so we thought we were turning it off it restarted and has been on for over a week straight...yikes! It's an OLD relic computer too, maybe 5 years old or so. Poor old man. Cross your fingers that when I turn it off tonight it comes back on tomorrow.

The wedding was fantastic. We downloaded the pictures to the laptop which is with Jason in Chicago, thus the flying alone with two kiddos and heavy suitcase (for which, I do believe, I should get a cookie). So will post in a couple of days. Isaac danced like a maniac and had his own little posse of twenty something ladies trying to improve his moves and dancing with him. I overheard more then once 'how adorable Jose's nephews where' --- yeah yeah, it's my blog, I will brag if I want to.

So....things get said at weddings, when family meets family....my own dear brother, guilty of one insert foot moment, the bride's father another....I found them both pretty darn funny, so will share them....

My brother....says something to the effect, 'yes, three sisters and only one married (his new wife) can you believe it? This said, by the way, in front of the other sisters....hope they're gracious ladies! Having met them I think they are.

Bride's father afters speaking of his own belief that he himself 'married up' mentioned that he also thought Jose married up....said in front of my mother, step father, me and Jose.....Jose agreed, my mother looked puzzled....and then looking at bride's dad's face when he realized what he had just said was the most hysterical thing ever. Everybody laughed, no one felt bad because it was so obviously not meant in the manner it was presented...but ya had to be there.

But really, the families, I thought, seemed to get along just fine, everyone seemed to have a great time. I certainly enjoyed myself. You really couldn't ask for your brother to be married into a more gracious warm hearted family.....

so more later.

maybe a lot later because.....drum roll....TOMORROW IS MY FIRST DAY OF NURSING SCHOOL.

Now Colleen, you know it is 2007: Go charge up your Palm Pilot is more likely to be the case.

Good Luck Ms. TZ!
And, welcome Home!

PS: Don't forget about weekly "sharing" day. MC's day is Tuesday...way better than trying to remember on a Monday!

Sorry to hear that Jason left you and you had to put the kids into a bag which cost $50. But the wedding sounded fun.

Funnyeee to hear the other foot in mouth comment! ;) My own favorite one was when I congratulated a friend on her upcoming arrival (she in fact had just gained a few pounds around her waist and was not at all pregnant.) That was a fun one- I'm determined to get more gracious with age!

Wow. I just learned of TWO new foot sandwiches. I DID know about the "only one of three is married" comment from Jose, because "gracious Lisa" kept repeating it, but didn't know about the "marrying up" comment (wow... Bill is really one to talk...) nor Anne congratulating the non-pregnant friend on her upcoming birth...

Oy. I need a drink.
