One Day More...

Well I'm alive, and struggling with feelings of guilt like I have never known (except for maybe the time I got my neighbor friend's bike stolen when I was nine years old).

I got married 10 days ago, and between catching flights, and not having internet access for the past week and a half, have been too busy to post anything since. I had a wedding reception a week before that, and haven't posted anything from there, either.

But...I did write a quasi-post the night before we got married--only I was too exhausted to click the orange "publish post" button. Seriously. So I will go ahead and post that now, but keep in mind it is almost two weeks outdated...

"One day more...

It's more like 12 hours, actually.

Been a bit too busy to blog lately. Haven't even written in my journal. How dreadful! I will want to remember this special and exciting time in my life, and here I've not even recorded anything-- anywhere--for the past two weeks. Good thing we're having a week-long honeymoon; hopefully I'll find time to get caught up on the happenings of the past few days. Our posterity (supposing we reproduce, that is) would want to know about it.

I'm getting married tomorrow. What am I doing tonight? Went to Sonic... Worked on our wedding video... Snapped at some of the people I love most... Is that how it's supposed to go? I'm not sure. I'm just beginning a long life of not being sure I'm doing stuff the right way."

{Back to real time}

So that was my state of mind the night before I got married. Did I sound a bit lost? Well, I'm not feeling any of that now. Inasmuch as my entire married life to date has been bouncing from hotel room to cruise ship to tropical island, I must say I'm loving the new life. {Ask me in a few days after dealing with packing 21 years of bedroom and lugging it across the 49th parallel, and I might not sound so chipper.} I have lots and lots to catch up on, but I can't feel right about doing that until I have some decent pictures to post. I am writing this from the lobby of the Comfort Suites in Ft. Lauderdale, so it might be awhile until I can really sink my teeth in and get caught up on the blog.

Until later, then...

"I'm just beginning a long life of not being sure I'm doing stuff the right way."

i felt like that my whole marriage until i realized there's no wrong way, right way. only your way, their way.

congrats on starting your own way and your own traditions.

Oh, Mill, I'm sorry I haven't checked or written your blog...I kept checking and checking when you were on your honeymoon, but to no avail. I guess I gave up. I'm looking forward to some GORGEOUS wedding pictures; they are to die for, folks! My sister was possibly the most beautiful bride in the world. Anyway, I'm glad you're back, but will be so sad to lose you to the Canadian contingency in a couple days. They are lucky...

The day before, as the weeks before, were hard. I am glad they are over . It hurt a lot when you snapped, but knowing that you were nervous and anxious makes it better. Getting married is a new adventure and one that you will enjoy. The Canada part is hard on all of us. We love you and want you close. I have waited to read this because I knew it would be too hard. I am so glad that you got the things that you wanted in your wedding and reception. We worked hard to make your dream become a reality. Now you have your whole life to look back on the beginning as you prepare for the end and the return to our HEavenly Parents. I love you and I miss you already. I will let you know when I finally go into your room. Until that time, THE DOOR IS SEALED!
Love you always and forever.
