Marie is Married

Marie is married. This is both awesome and strange. Awesome because it is about time! And strange because she and Anthon had been dating for so long, the transition will be a difficult one to adjust to. But, I think that it is a very good thing.

The wedding and reception went really well on Saturday. I think that most everything turned out as she had planned it. It was a little like chaos when trying to get Marie ready and the two girl children as well, but it worked out okay. Marie looked beautiful and the reception center looked beautiful and things turned out very well. I was so very tired by the end of the day though. I think that being a bridesmaid is more work than being a bride on the day of the wedding.

I'm very sick of children now. After children at the wedding and children at my parents' house on Sunday, I'm done. On Sunday I went to the parents and I started playing life with all the siblings, but after two hours of an incomplete game and children screaming and going wild and not being able to calm down, I was done. But, despite this, I had a pleasant Sunday.

Ree and Anthon will be gone for most of the week. I get the pleasure of moving them into their house while they are gone. How gleeful for me. I have to start being mean to people so that I don't help them with things.

Consensus is that you and Matt won the Life game, even at the point you left you had the most money.

Well, if I had stayed I would have dominated soundly! Alas that I could not endure the screaming of the little children. I could have handled just Benner and Ethan, it was the others that did me in. I don't know how you held out so long. Stupid couch sitters!

Ahhh...Life. At least it wasn't Monopoly. That would have gone on FOREVER!!! I had a better experience with chillins this week. No screaming or anything. Quite nice. I guess that's what happens when you only have one niece and one nephew. Glad to hear the wedding went well. :)

What are you talking about? I was screaming the whole time you were out here!
