Good TImes
Soooooo....yeah. How you doing?

We attended a wedding last week. On a Friday, which required taking a day off and that was nice. The wedding was for the son of one of my mother's good friends and his gorgeous bride. Other attendees included a very special lady that frequently comment on this very blog: CatMar, or Marilyn as we call her offline. At the end of the night, CatMar said "get writing on that blog again!" Or something like that. I don't know. I'd had a lot of red wine and was experiencing a sugar high because of my foray to the Venetian table and consumption of chocolate, whipped cream AND cotton candy at 1am. you go CatMar: a blog post, WITH pictures! OF YOU! Yeehaw!

Marilyn (left) and my mom. They've been friends since they were teenagers.

Dancing! YMCA! Shout! All the hits you know and love....

Ventian table....with pyrotechnics!
And of course, the bride and groom!

Moment of Reckoning
Today, Sophie and the rest of the kids in her grade will take the first half of the state math exam. The one for which she's studied, been tutored, taken practice tests and spent four mornings a week arriving at school nearly an hour early for help.

I don't know who will be more relieved that it is over, us or her. (Probably her, but we're still on the edge of our seats!)

What's He Trying to Say?
Harry (building a lego structure): "Mom! Look at my building!"
Me: "Very nice!"
Harry: "I'm going to live in a building like this when I'm all growed up."
Me: "Great! I can't wait to come visit you."
Harry: ?
Me: "You know, when you're big. I'll come visit you in your luxury building."
Harry: "Mom, you'll be dead by then."
Me: "Uh, I think I'll be alive for awhile when you're an adult."
Harry: "Will you look like you do now?"
Me: "Kinda. Just older."
Harry: "Then what's the point?"
