We're back from our trip out to South Bend, IN, where we celebrated junior parents weekend with our youngest son, his buddies, and their parents. Now we've got some quick last-minute things to take care of before we get back on the road again--we're headed for Upstate NY tomorrow or the next day for the wedding of son #4. There are rehearsal dinner menus to be printed, there's a cake to be decorated, and there's a tooth to be implanted--hooray!! If you come here often, you know that I was discouraged to lose both back molars on one side of my upper jaw several months ago, and I had to wear a sort of Invisiline braces contraption with a faux tooth embedded in it to my #3 son's wedding in December. Well, I didn't HAVE to wear it; but I chose to, because I found that I'm much too vain when it comes to having a full set of teeth. I really like the idea of having a full set. Full sets of teeth are my favorite. It would probably have been a good mortification for me to go without that device, trying to smile as widely as possible to show off my unfortunate gap...but alas, I am no saint. And I thought I was going to have to wear the device again for this wedding, and lisp my way through another major event in my sons' lives; but my dentist asked the people who are making my new crown (also known, at least right now, as my best friends) to put a rush on it, and they have it ready for me today.
Anyway, gang, I really don't have a lot of time to spend attending to my poor, semi-neglected blog. If I allow myself to try to compose something of substance, it will be 2:00 in the afternoon, I'll still be in my bathrobe, and I will have missed my dentist appointment altogether. I simply can't let that happen!
But I thought I'd share a few quick tidbits with you. When I scrolled through my Facebook news feed this morning, I saw that someone had posted this.
Another recent Facebook news feed gem is this meme posted by my husband's youngest brother, the #8 sibling in a proudly Irish family.
Okay, I'm off now. I've got places to go, things to do. Because in FIVE DAYS, son #4 will be receiving the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony--which is mind-boggling, because it seems like only yesterday that he was receiving his very first sacrament.
Okay, I really must go. The cake has cooled, so it's time to go into Cake Boss mode and get that thing decorated.
Have a great week everyone!
