The End of an Era


Posted at 11 Dec 2008 10:59:20 AM

What a hectic day.

Spent an agonizing evening tearing apart the house, looking for paperwork we thought we needed to get a marriage license. Went to bed at half past twelve, concluding that if we don't have it and we have to get stuff special-ordered and overnighted here, at least Missouri's done away with the 3-day waiting period. Had unsettling dreams all night.

Called the courthouse this morning and found out that we didn't need it after all.

Some internal stuff at work went all 'splodey and needed to be fixed this morning, except that I also had to run out and meet Dan at the courthouse to pick up the license. Was planning on being there at 12; got a call from him saying "I'm here, where are you?" at 11. Turns out I'd misheard him during our phone call. We got it done and it's the last "big" piece of the puzzle, but I still feel like a bundle of exposed nerve endings. Now I understand why newlywed brides always say "the best piece of advice I can give you is: let it go." My ToDo list for this shindig doesn't feel like it's getting any smaller, no matter what I get accomplished. I realize that not one task is so important or earthshaking that it warrants these panic attacks or dream-filled nights of 'sleep', but somehow they all just pile up and I feel like I'm scrambling to keep my head above water.


That being the case, I am not emotionally equipped to deal with this today. (Mirrored here in case the BBC eventually takes it down.) It's a bit hard to explain how I could be in tears over a baseball stadium, but the photos of Babe Ruth's daughter and of Mariano Rivera scooping up a container of infield dirt sends me right off the deep end. I understand why it's happening, and Yankee Stadium certainly isn't the first - the Cards just got a new stadium, and you can still see the lot where the old one used to be - but I'm just not okay at all.

Fif messaged me last night to see whether I was watching ESPN - apparently they were broadcasting the last game. While I appreciate the heads' up and I'm happy the Yanks won, there's just no way I could have been clinical enough to watch it.


In good news, I took a ride out to Lone Elk and verified that we should probably have enough seating and parking space for everyone. The weather report looks good so far and if all of you who are reading this could do the occasional anti-rain dance, we should be set.

BPAL update coming soon-ish.

Internet is written with the capital letter in a sentence, by the way. And hundredths are written not with a point but with a comma. This is according to the standard. And actually everything is very good..!!
