The Hellhole

Monday, May 23, 2011

The Saturday after Mothers' Day, we attended my cousin's wedding which was here. Everything went well - the venue was beautiful, so was the bride, the food was great. They're going to the Dominican Republic for their honeymoon. No criticism of them intended, but I'm not sure I could handle the stress of an international flight so soon after all the stress leading up to getting married. I hope they have a wonderful time.

On Sunday, we headed down to Wrens, Georgia for the reunion of Alan's mom's side of the family. It's always a challenge because it's way out in the boonies and our GPS refuses to admit that the church/address actually exists. This year, turnout was noticeably less than previous years. As far as I was concerned, the event was a total bust - no Monkey Baby, no crazy Great-Aunt Cleo (who performs hymns she composes herself), no rednecks dressed in t-shirts from strip joints...still, it was good to see Alan's immediate family, except that his sister had to work and couldn't attend.

This weekend, we celebrated our wedding anniversary on Saturday. I got him a huge rock engraved with our names and wedding date. We got one for some friends as a wedding present - well, theirs had their own names and date on it, otherwise it would have been a pretty strange gift - and Alan had mentioned several times since that he would like to have one. He got me two necklaces with Celtic designs, one with a center stone of Connemara marble. We went to a nice dinner here. Sunday was quiet and laid-back, but I really needed a day like that after so much activity.

How was your weekend?


  • Too bad about the Monkey Baby - was really hoping for pictures this time.

    It sounds like y'all had a lovely anniversary. I'm very glad to hear it. :-)
