The office move is over,

The wedding is over,

The family-in-town is over,

The worrying over money to cover the rehearsal dinner and wedding costs is over,

And i'm finding my new rhythms more each day.

April 9th, 2011

My son and his beloved are getting married in 2 days, at one of the grandest venues in Tucson. My family starts arriving today and it will be a really big show, guaranteed.

2 friends that i invited aren't coming, and there are some shifts in the friendships over this. Suffice it to say that i'm feeling a lot of stuff!

My relationship with my son is complex. I only asked 3 friends since the guest list was so limited, and now i'm down to one who will actually show up. I'm pissed, hurt, frustrated, angry and guilty. If i had known these 2 wouldn't come, i'd (obviously) have invited other friends, but am told that it's too late to make any changes in the guest list.

So, this is my only son--my only child. My family members will be here. It's all about 'family', and 2 of my friends no longer include themselves in this category. That's what burns the saddest for me.

In the meantime i am planning to have the wonder-fullest weekend possible. It's always a mixed bag, isn't it?
