Wedding Week

Monday, July 21st, 2003 · 2 Comments

The wedding week has begun. The Big Day is this Saturday, which is hard to believe that the time has finally come. After more than a year of planning (too long), Jen and I are finally here in upstate New York. We’re at her parents’ place in Kinderhook now; we arrived here a couple days ago — Saturday night. We’ve been taking it easy the past couple days…had breakfast yesterday with Karen and Joti, then went up to Colonie (Albany) with Tracy and Christine yesterday afternoon. I bought some funky new Mountain Creek sandals. I like them.

My little bro is on a plane right now on his way back from a 3-week trip to Europe. Lucky bastard. He flies into JFK tonight and is taking the train to Poughkeepsie, where Jen and I plan to pick him up later this evening. Then we’ll all stay here in Kinderhook another two nights, then head down to Poughkeepsie again on Wednesday to check into the hotel.

Wednesday night is also when my parents and the wedding party arrives. We’ll all be in Poughkeepsie through Sunday, the day after the wedding. Thursday our immediate families are having dinner at Beekman Arms in Rhinebeck, which should be fun. Then Friday, of course, is the rehearsal and the dinner. Which leaves Saturday…

Then we’re off to Hawaii next week. Woohoo!

Postings may be sparse or sporadic in the coming weeks, but I’m going to try to write when I can. I won’t have a computer in Poughkeepsie, so Wednesday through Saturday there most likely will not be any entries here.

Stay tuned…I’ll be a married man before I know it.

On an unrelated note, I’ve decided to return my new camera cell phone and drop out of the focus group. The AT&T service is just horrible. There’s zero service here in upstate New York, and I haven’t been at all happy with the service quality. I plan to return the phone on Monday, August 4, when I’m back at work. (Not that I want to think at all about work or being back right now, but that will be cutting it quite close to my 30-day return window.) Too bad my activation fee isn’t refundable, but at least I can cancel before it’s too late. A cell phone should be a phone first. If it can’t do that, then why bother?)

Over and out.

    First for today!

    I’m sure, by now, you two have already gone through the cermony and are, hopefully, collapsing somewhere.

    Congratulations, you two! Enjoy Hawaii and many, many more years together in comfortable happiness!
