Runnin' Around.

Getting married is a real cornucopia of details, no matter how you slice it. You might say to that, "No duh." But somehow I figured that by avoiding a wedding party, a band (thank you iPod), assigned seating, a lot of guests, etc. etc., that would mean free n' easy nuptials. Not so much. Among the details: What do you say to each other at the altar?

I did not want to say "'Til death do us part." There was some momentary friction on that one. I'd rather ignore the fact that I'm going to die as long as possible. Doesn't "all the rest of our days" sound so much more noncommittal toward death? I thought so too. All the rest of our days... that's like zillions and zillions of days! Right?

Well, this is probably the least composed and most inelegant post so far. Please forgive me, it's my wedding week (quote from Sex and the City: "You get a day. One day."). After this, it's Hawaii for 10 days. Cliche honeymoon destination but easy (if bank-breaking) and I've never been.

More upon return...

i estimate u have roughly 14,600 days left ---- that's a conservative estimate and you could probably eke out 18,000

Or you could get all mushy and count the days as double now. And with kids... (My wife and I have been married ten years today, so ten for her, ten for me, seven for the daughter, three for the boy - that's thirty years we've aged. Wait. That's not what you meant, is it?)

have fun at the wedding. inevitably some small thing will go wrong but inevitably you won't care because you'll be having your special day and you will be the star of the moment and you will be surrounded by your favorite peeps.

are you going to maui? i went to maui and stayed at the four seasons. it was the best five days of my life.

Hmmm...planning as well as lack of planning can equally backfire. I hope all turns out well. I am not a fan of weddings, much less having my own wedding at all, but I certainly hope that this all turns out for the best.
