Y is for Yikes!

Never a dull moment.

So last night I fell asleep reading, but wouldn't you know, as soon as I awoke enough to go through the ritual of removing glasses, turning off the light and putting the book away, I was wide awake. I lay there staring at my artificial star studded sky. I found 1/4" glow-in-the-dark stars online and have been putting them on my ceiling according to a summer star chart. I finally just got up, thinking of one more thing to write my friend on an e-mail. I heard my young son and his Cute Girl friend in the next room, so I went to say hello.
They announced to me that they had been talking, and have decided to change their wedding date from June 17, 2008 to October 27, 2007!!! That is in 50 days from now!!! Plus they asked me if I would make her wedding dress! I had plans to go see my mom in Colorado in October, but I think that is out of the question if I am to make a dress AND plan an Open House reception for the couple in our town. Local tradition says we have a reception in the bride's town and an Open House in the groom's town. I am not too sure how many of the family can make it now, with such a short notice. Her family has just had two weddings in a row this last June. She is not too sure how some of their family will make it either.
But this is what keeps life exciting, right? It is good to be flexible. And if I were in their shoes, I would be just as tempted to do the same thing. I will do my best to support them. I wish them the best, now wish me luck pulling this off. I think I like challenges like this, actually. I really work better under pressure.

I actually like Risible Girl's description of her stress when she says,

Hi AnnieLL,
I have always thought you hung not only the moon, but the stars as well.... and now you confess to the world that they are 1/4" glow in the dark. Well, for me, you hung the real ones too.

I am glad you are the mom of my kids, and thankful that you are ready to jump in and do what it takes to help to launch them.

Oh my.... I only know how I would respond at having to sew someone a dress
of any kind -- I hold you in the highest esteem!!! With all my heart I mean
that!!!!

You are a great inspiration to me my dear!

Whew! I'm so glad they're moving it up! June was WAY to long to wait.

Go Dan!

Awww, your husband writes the sweetest things!

Anyway- back to the topic at hand.

HOLY SMOKES!!!!! Now who's going to be running around with her hair on fire! That would be YOU!

Wow- that's hardly any time at all!

I can't wait to see how everything turns out though.

(but yikes!)

Oh, Annie! I truly admire your meeting the challenge so sweetly! I would have been in shock!

And sailor is a darling! You are a very lucky woman!

I know I owe you email but I'm still digging myself out.

Hi
This is The Nurse's friend Miriam from California and I just wanted you to know that I am a closet reader of your blog :). And I love every minute of it. I think you are the type of woman I want to be when I grow up.
