A late weekend recap

It was bad of me not to write yesterday, I know. Many, many apologies...stupid work got in the way. What's up with that?!?!?

I have some weekend recapping to do, which is late, I know. But it was a very eventful weekend, so I feel like I should cover it. First off, wake and funeral for The Boy's Aunt on Friday night. Entirely too suddenly, and it was really difficult on his Mom, but she seemed to hold it together pretty well. I am sure that she is a total mess now that the events are all done and there is no planning to distract anyone. I found myself wanting to hug her a lot...she's nice:-).

We had a really nice dinner with his brother and sisters afterwards. Nothing special, it was just nice to be able to sit down together without children or other family, which we have never really done before. (If you want a brief recap of his sisters' relationship, read here. It might make you cry...it makes me cry:-))

The funeral was Saturday morning, and was equally difficult. I cried a LOT...I really, really liked his Aunt and I will miss her. She was an awfully cool lady. The burial and lunch reception were nice, a lot of his family was in from out of town, so it was a good chance to catch up with some people briefly.

After that, we had a wedding to go to, which was actually a lot of fun, but sort of draining, and The Boy was absolutely exhausted by the end. However, I did get to say something that I never really guessed I would say...

The wedding was for a girl that he used to work with. I have met her once or twice, only briefly. We got to the church, and sat down. I opened the program, looked at the names and said "Hey, you didn't tell me that this was a lesbian wedding." Somehow, that got lost in the discussion...lol. So yes, it was my second lesbian wedding, and quite different from the first...I will spare you the details, though. It was a beautiful wedding and I had a lot of fun, even though I didn't know anybody at the beginning.

The Boy ended up sleeping until about noon on Sunday (I told you he was tired!) so Munchkin and I had a breakfast date with Smoking Hot Roommate. Then we went to dinner for The Brain Surgeon's birthday (Happy Birthday, buddy:-)) and that was about it.

So, there you have my eventful weekend... and this weekend? Chicago...more on that tomorrow.

Sounds like quite an emotional weekend. That must have taken some strength to go do the funeral one day and a wedding the next.

I'm intrigued by your Chicago news...

Ys - Nothing special...just haven't been in a while, and I miss Tinkerbelle:-)

The wedding and funeral were on the same day. Funeral at 10:30, wedding at 3:00...
