Ellie day!

Ellie-day is here! Yay! Ellie! Ellie! Ellie!

And today’s my last day at work before the wedding! Yay! Yay! Yay!

Last night was the first time I didn’t get a really good night’s sleep. I’m actually happy about that. I was kind of worried because I was sleeping fine, and not really nervous or anxious or anything. Not that I was nervous or anxious last night, I just kept thinking over and over and over “I have got to go to the gym.” Ah well. I’ll have time tomorrow for sure, but there’s no way I’m taking time away from Ellie today, just to exercise! Anyway, running all over my mom’s house, getting things together for 6 hours has to count for something.

So the excitement begins…Ellie (and Evan and Jennifer, and Jennifer’s dad, Rick) come today…Jenny comes tomorrow…Kristina and Marianne come on Thursday and we’re going to stay in New Orleans (I can’t wait to take Marianne, who lives in London, to the pub. Let me pause to tell a quick story. When Kristina and Anne and I first got to London for our six-month stint, we went to visit Marianne at her university in Canterbury. That evening, she took us to the campus pub and got the first round of drinks. Boy, was she proud of herself when she announced she had bought us good ol’ American Coors! Yeah…too bad the pub doesn’t serve the British equivalent.)

So then on Friday is a lunch for my girls and my friend Betsy from high school comes in and the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner and then um on Saturday…hmmm…I know I have plans on Saturday….mind…going…blank…tee hee!
