My flight leaves in 12.5 hours

It's 2:30 AM on Wednesday night and I'm about finished packing. I'm finishing up a load of laundry before I go. The cab will be here in 10 hours to pick up and deposit me at Reagan National Airport. In less than 24 hours I get to see Tara for the first time in 24 days.

I get funky before I leave town for vacation. I clean and have a hard time sleeping. The fact that I'm getting married makes it even harder. I fell asleep on the couch for about 2 hours tonight, so I can't even pass out with fatigue. When I get up, I'll have to do some light vacuuming and I need to pack up my shaving kit, but just about everything else is already done. I washed my sheets in preparation for our first night together when she returns to her home. Yep, her home. When I purchased my first house, I had her in mind, even though I hadn't met her yet.

I went to pick up my tuxes and I was informed that my tux was ready, but the rest of the tuxes that I had to bring with me won't be in until after 1 PM tomorrow. Well that was just unacceptable. So they'll be fedexing them to Oregon and it should be there on Friday. They will be paying for the mistake and I no longer have to carry 5 tuxes all the way to Oregon! So it's working out just fine.

Tara's matron of honor has arrived home, it's her step-sister. And her parents have been working their butts off to make this a great wedding. I'm grateful even as there has been some tension as we've gone along the way. Egads! I still haven't picked a song for me and my Mom to dance to at the wedding! I found one suitable song, but it's hard to find a good Mother / Son song. I'll go look at that now.

Here are a few tux pictures... fortunately it's not bad luck to see the groom, only the bride.
