David and I will be heading out on a road trip starting tomorrow morning and I don't think I'm going to bring my laptop with me, so I will be AFK for a few days. We're driving up to Rochester for a wedding here
on Saturday. David grew up in Rochester and lived there until about 7 years ago. His best friend is a great guy named JC and his daughter Molly is getting married. For those of you who know what Wegmans is, she is marrying into that august family. This wedding should be fairly high tone. I will probably sit in a corner and try to look inconspicuous.
I have my outfit. I'll be wearing a long black skirt with a black silk shell and a beautiful silk jacket that I found in a shop near my house. It's hard to describe, but it is very sheer, with painted panels with green, blue and yellow. I'll have to post pictures because it is really lovely. Still trying to figure out what shoes to wear. I have some simple black pumps as a fall back position, but I might try to find something a little prettier. David has his clothes but he does not have any appropriate shoes, so I foresee a visit to the outlet mall near Rochester in our future. Like tomorrow.
I'm going to fly home on Monday and David will stay up in Rochester for a few extra days and hang out with JC at his house. Work is really slow for him right now, so it's a good time for him to take some days and get to spend time with his friends. I think he's planning on coming home on Wednesday. I just hope this doesn't interfere with him taking the time off at the end of August when we want to go up to Vermont.
I feel a little weird about going to the wedding. So far, I have only met JC and his kids (he also has a wonderful son, Charlie). At the wedding I will be meeting lots of the people that David knows in Rochester, most of whom he hasn't seen for a long time. I can get kind of shy (I know - MOI? SHY? Yes, it happens.) when I am in a crowd like that. There is even a chance - slim, but a possibility - that David's ex-wife will be there. I doubt it, but she is the one who originally introduced JC to his wife, so it could happen. Now that would be weird with a capital Strange.
This afternoon Sarah is coming up to my office and we're going to go off and do girlie things. We're going to (finally!) get properly fitted for bras here
and then go for manicures and pedicures. I love spending time with her and yes, we are in the countdown to the second migration of the fledglings back to Vermont. Less than 6 weeks...
So have a great weekend folks. I will do my best to catch up with everything when I get back home.
*hugs* to them that wants 'em!
