a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

Haven't gotten a good chance to write much lately because my Grandma has been here and we got back from sunnyblue's wedding. So, my Grandma just left this morning, and now, with nothing to do but send books into Bookshare and watch TV, I write in my journal. IT's very quiet here now that Grandma's gone. I no longer have someone trying to argue with me for whose going to pay for what, and trying to get something for me all the time. I miss her. I'll live though; with the dogs and Liz coming in a week or so, I'll have things to do.

The wedding went well. We got to the northwest arkansas area on Saturday, got checked in, and then ate at a really tasty steak house with Megan's fam. We were honored that they invited us to the dinner. After not sleeping very well, we got up very early (relatively), got dressed, and drove to the chapel where they got married. It was located off of a long wooded path, and the day couldn't have been more perfect. It was my kind of wedding too, short not too huge. I know they will do great together, especially with their combined sense of humor. The whole thing made me reflect on Megan and our friendship over the years, because she's probably the first and only person I've kept in touch with from high school and whose now married. Makes me realize that we only continue to get older.

Since coming back, we all tried to recover from the long two days and subsequent trips to and from Little Rock. I think I'm somewhat back to normal now :). It was totally worth the trip though.

Well, I need to go. Ken Jennings and the gang are competing in the ultimate tournament on Jeopardy and the game is the second in the final tournament. It was close yesterday and I bet it's close today. Jennings is losing by a bit too, so that's a bonus. In fact, at the moment he's in third place. Somebody's got to lose right? More soon.

I hardly slept a wink Saturday night. I was exhausted even before we went to the steak house, so I thought for sure I'd get to sleep quickly, but nooooooo. I wonder if anyone slept well Saturday night.

Thanks for coming to the wedding and reception and dinner. I hope y'all had some fun. I seriously was worried that you were gonna trip on the rock floor of the chapel and break yourself. I am so glad that did not happen.

We've been friends for a looong time. I have been thinking about that too. About who I used to be close with, who I still am, who I've known the longest, who I think I'll continue to be friends with for a long time into the future and who I think I will grow apart from. It is very cool and weird to reflect. The cool part is to look at how much has changed, yet the most important things have stayed the same. The weird part is all the memories that come back of stuff you'd rather have forgotten in times where you felt awkward or stupid or mean or whatever.

I'm so glad that we became and have stayed friends. And so blessed that your Fam is so loving to me.
