I had big plans about blogging a whole lot more, telling the world about my Exploration of My Path to My New Life, but so far, it has involved walking the dog and cleaning out my closet.
Today, we did have big fun. Girlchild is engaged (did I remember to mention that?) and she's thinking of an October wedding. October, 2010, that is. Yeah, this October. This isn't an impossible thing, as it's a small wedding, as these things go - under 100 guests for sure, probably 50-75; but it must be REALLY NICE. And also really affordable. And also in a special location that will be elegant and different. (My own reception was a drab afternoon luncheon in a drab hotel ballroom, and, yeah, bleh.)
Today we went to a bridal show in Lake County, which, despite the "best of" rankings it has received, was...eh. We then drove from Mt. Dora to downtown Orlando, to do drive-bys of a couple of venues. And it appears we have a winner! We did a drive-by and she was excited enough to want to get down to details.
My back is aching like a bad tooth today. It took me a while to figure out why. Though I feel like I'm Not Doing Jack Shit, in reality, I have been cleaning out the closet and lifting and stretching and moving. I'm not doing anything really that strenuous, just different, and it's just a sign of how BAD sitting for 11-12 waking hours a day has been for me. My back is pissed off about having to function in an upright position for so many hours a day. It will get over it.
I also have a black and white and crazy all over house guest. When I dropped Girl at her house, I collected Dudley - Layla needed Alone Time with Mommy and Daddy again, for some quiet training and positive reinforcement of Good, Calm Girl behavior, and Dudley needed a break from being the Instigator of Mischief, and Murphy has been moping and needed a doggy sleepover. Everybody's happy. Except the cats.
