First the good news. The hubs-to-be and I put an offer in on a house and they accepted. Woo-hoo! It's not far from our current location and it looks almost the same on the inside. Much smaller kitchen and no deck, so you Xmas partiers are gonna hafta chill in the basement, which is finished and will be a great place to hang for the occasion. I'm picturing a wet bar already. Attic was remodeled and turned into a master suite. I'm going to finally get my walk-in closet! Score! We'll probably close later next month. Yeah, good timing. I know.
Another bit of good news...I had my wedding shower. It was tame (thankfully, since the Mo-In-Law was present). I had a couple embarrassing moments (thanks, Shayna) but it's all good. I think it went over some heads. My attendants hosted the event and they did such wonderful things like provide fresh flowers, awesome brunchy foods, cool gift baskets and they didn't make us play any games. Now, are those real girlfriends or what! The day was gorgeous and I had a blast!
Now the crappy news. My poor mommy went boom on her new vespa. She's in the hospital recuiperating. Without going into the gross details, she's going to be OK! For a woman who's almost 70 (don't you dare tell her I said that) she's got off pretty good. Time will heal broken bones and cuts. She' should be almost 100% by wedding time but will not be doing anything if I have anything to say about it. If anything, experiences like these remind us how delicate life can be, so tell your mom you love her every day b/c there could come a day when you can't.
