So far today:
Counselor: A pretty good session. This week was a Make Some Decisions session. (Last week was an Untie The Knot By Staring Out The Window session.)
Rodent Inspection: The inspector couldn't get up into the attic because of the stuff sprayed yesterday, but she did do an outside inspection and will come back next week. Maybe Jane or I will get up into the attic some day soon and look around ourselves. The inspector did point out to me what could be a means of ingress for whatever is up there.
Wedding plans: We've picked April 1st as the date. Our two choices were April 1st or May 6th, but May 6th turns out to be Corflu, where some of the folks we'd like to have attend will be. We thought of having a back yard wedding, but the weather is pretty unpredictable in April. (As opposed to January, when it's predictably wet, or July, when it's predictably dry.) Picnic shelters are pretty inexpensive, but the picnic season runs from April 1 to Sept. 30, and we wouldn't find out if our site was available to us until late March. I'm going to call the picnic reservations office tomorrow to see if they have better information.
We've wandered into three different jewelry stores, each time getting a little more information about what we really wanted. (For instance, my ring has lost two mm of width and several grams of weight. Hah!) Maybe if we put all that information together, we could visit the three of them again and see who has the best prices.
Photography: I have now keyworded and added metadata to all the photos in my IMG folders. So, now I'll print them all out.
Which means I can start to play Planarity. hah! My secret plan comes to fruition!
Julie may have told you that Nev and I were already discussing a trip to Seattle on the very weekend that you have decided to tie the knot. We almost bought our tickets online a couple of days ago, but when we read that it could be either April 1st or May 6th we decided to hold off until you knew for certain. If this date is definate, we will go online and purchase our tickets in a day or two, so we can attend the wedding and do Vanguard too. You sound pretty certain so I think we'll purchase tickets in the next couple of days.
Good luck and congradulations to you both. We're looking forward to seeing you and all the rest of the friends we made when we were out there. We're still planning on coming back to live there from July until November every year, so we'll have plenty of chances to do things with you and everybody else out there.
See you in April.
Yep, Julie's mentioned it and I just reread some of her posts and your exchanges. It'd be great having you and Nev in Seattle.
We're going to go with April 1st because we just have to pick a date and stick to it to begin making real plans. Also, May 6th is Corflu, and as I say above, some folks we'd like to have attend will be there.
But, again, it'd be great to have you guys in town. Yeah!
(Last week was an Untie The Knot By Staring Out The Window session.)
I also have Watch Seaplanes Over My Neighborhood While I Wait For Everything To Fix Itself sessions.
There's a problem with our counselor lady and that is that she has such a great view out her windows. In the spring and summer it could be broiling in her office, but I guess we'll have to find out.
I've also had Curse My Father and What He Did To Me When I Was Five Years Old anyway.
April Fools wedding! Now that has potential...
That's the whole idea! Save the date, please. ;>
Will you be registered with Archie McPhee? Or have they gone too commercial/mainstream for you and there's some smaller, out-of-the-way, much cooler place for weird things you go to now?
