Claire is typing furiously on her computer right now while I am updating the blog. She woke up earlier today than she does for work. That's just not natural. But apparently she has a lot on her mind and the least I can do is supply her with coffee and occasional cheers.
But I have to be honest with you for a minute. When Claire and I both get stressed and tired, we argue. This is not good, especially on Day 10. I know I should be mature enough to not argue but there is just something about a sister that brings it out in me.
Stupid, stupid sin nature.
Well yesterday brought my last day of work (big thanks to my boss!) and a mom and sister mani /pedi. It was at a place called Fancy Fingers and we had the best time. My hands now look like they belong to a girl instead of a logger.
My lady's name was Barb and she asked me what I was going to do now that I was losing my roommate (I have been asked this question at least 20 times in the last 9 days. And the answer is still "I have no earthly idea.") So Barb suggested that I buy a dog or two. I told her that I preferred a husband.
Claire got her hair highlighted and then spent the evening with Carr at their new apartment. They are literally right across the street from me and they have already said they will be over every night for dinner. I may just surprise them and show up at their house for dinner instead. Although they don't have dishes right now so I may wait until their registry kicks in.
I came home and laid horizontally on the couch for three hours. I was beginning to feel sick but there is nothing like a little Modern Family and a dinner of frozen pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and a glass of wine to make you feel as right as rain!
In other news, Carr's parents arrived last night and I am really looking forward to meeting them. I realize that I am the only extrovert in my entire family so I'll try to be on my best behavior.
Today is our sprint to the finish line! Claire and I will pick up her dress and learn how to bustle it, we will have the programs printed, Noah's tux fitted, plus there is last-minute shopping and the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. It's going to be a very full day.
Thank you again for being the best readers ever. Seriously, you have made this process so much more fun! If I could, I would bear hug you right now but I am really trying not to mess up my manicure. I am really digging my girl hands.
