9/27 Anniversary and more...

Today is Jill and Todd's 9th anniversary. Their wedding was on the beach at Carmel and was lovely. Very small. Just her father (and his wife/son), her brother (Rob) and mom (me). Todd's mom and dad, brothers and their families. So it was a very intimate ceremony. I have so many good memories of that day. Probably my favorite--Jill's maid of honor was her brother Rob, all decked out in his formal military uniform. They looked gorgeous together.

Jill thought it was no big deal asking her brother to be her maid of honor, because "you're supposed to ask your best friend." Now, that memory always makes me tear up a bit. I love my kids!

The "and more..." stuff has to do with my near-panic attack at no money in the bank. Can't wait until Friday (payday). The good news is that I only have a few more payments left on my car, and it's still in good condition. And I'm still confident my condo will sell quickly...but we'll see.

Had an 8 AM appointment at Red Cross for someone in the HR department to sign a form saying that I am who I say I am. Yeah. Had to show my passport. It's a form from the Department of Homeland Security. Hope I pass all the background checks.

Today at work I'm publishing two different online newsletter, so am very busy. What in the hell am I doing blogging? Can't help it. It's an addiction. Or an affliction.

Thanks for posting about our anniversary. Usual day for us today, we will celebrate it on Friday when the kids stay at daycare late for "Late Night". We don't have to pick them up until 9:30 p.m. so we will go for a nice dinner.

I know you'll enjoy that. I'm posting from BucketWorks--they have free wireless for members. Will start rehearsal in a half-hour or so.
