Well, this is a big day. We are going to Las Vegas for a quiet private wedding ceremony in front of the beautiful fountain in front of the Bellagio Hotel on Saturday.


Let me back up. My wonderful husband of three years, has finally repaired his torn relationship with his 40 year old son. It's a too long story, but his son really never knew his dad, because of his bitter mother. What a shame for this father and son, for all these wasted years.

Anyway, Andy (the son) called today and asked us to come to Vegas so Steve (my husband, his father) can be his "best man". I could cry for them, it is such a wonderful thing. It will just be the four of us, and very simple, in front of this beautiful fountain.
Is there anything more wonderful than love?
update on the wedding: (I'll post a picture when I figure out how to get it off my brand new camera)

It was just spectacular!! It was all planned in three days, very simple, but just spectacular. Just after their vows were said, the fountain started it's dance to the Sinatra classic, "Fly Me to the Moon". Just remarkable as it happened to be right on cue!! The four of us danced to the music with the dancing fountain as the backdrop. Lots of smiles and happy tears from all.
We had a lovely dinner together at a window table that overlooked the fountain. When they left for their honeymoon room, Steve said that next to our own wedding in Greece, it was the happiest night of his life.
Again, ain't love grand?

Thanks so much for all the good wishes, you guys are the best!!

Whew!!! I have been wanting to add my music playlist to my blog for a long time now (my daughter has it on hers and I wanted it too). I finally figured it out and have it on there now. Finally! Now I have to add more songs!

On a happy note, my maintenance guy/hero came through with a working TV delivered this morning. It's the same size as the one I had but without the built in VCR, and it's silver instead of black. I had hoped for a little bigger than 14", but hey. No shopping, delivered, $20. SWEET!

Tiny bit of background: My paydays are on Tuesday, not until recently have I been working on paydays and I've been getting my days mixed up...must still be on nightshift time.

Another: I fall asleep as a sanity-saving, self-defense mechanism when riding in a car with a reckless driver.

The other night I had a distressing dream. Shrek and I are in the car and he asked me if I had remembered to pick up my paycheck. I said no, I had forgotten about it but would get it later. In the dream, Shrek started accelerating in the car, taking all kinds of reckless risks, so I fell asleep in the dream and decided there it was just a dream and woke to still be in the car. This happened several times. And when I finally did wake up i was angry at Shrek for being so wreckless until I woke up enough to realize it had all been a dream.

When I told Shrek about the dream he laughed his butt off!

Yesterday, while tooling around the building, I remembered it was Tuesday and went to Reception to pick up my paycheck. I didn't remember the dream incident at that time. The receptionist was busy on the phone and the desk was not set up for payday. I wandered off down the hall and asked the first CNA I kew if it was payday.

She told me payday was last week. I was wondering if I had picked up my paycheck and forgotten about it or what the heck was going on.

So, I went back to payroll and asked Kathy if I had missed a payday. She found my paycheck in the box on her desk. I had forgotten payday

About that time I remembered the dream and got a chuckle out of it, listen to your dreams!!! Shrek is still laughing about it.

The best part...we get paid three times this month. I can do what ever I want with it, Black Friday is coming up and still make next month's rent on time

Maybe you forgot about it because you are used to 2 paydays a month.

You must be thrilled, an extra payday right before Christmas.
