It has been a whirlwind week! I subbed at Gage Mon-Wed and it was AWFUL! The paras there are mean mean ladies! I think they all need to have a time out! I won't be going back there again. Thurs and Fri I got to sub at Lincoln, which is home away from home so I was absolutely thrilled to be available!
Wed night was ladies night with the pharmacy crowd. We ate at the Olive Garden...I have not been there in years! The endless soup was perfect, and I wanted to follow it up with a piece of the pumpkin cheesecake, but it was all gone. Probably for the best since I have my final dress fitting tomorrow morning!
Last night was Parent Orientation at the school. We do a little meeting in the gym then all the parents go to their students classrooms for a little info session. During the meeting in the gym I had to give a little "speech" so to speak for all the parents...I was SHAKING! It has been years since I have been in front of a crowd of people that large and it just about sent my heart through my chest. I definitely think my days of being on stage are over! But I still have a few years of speech giving at Lincoln with ViE and PPT...should have thought those committees through-- oh well.
Tuesday, Benjamin started First Players. It is a group of 5th graders who meet before school twice a week at First Presbyterian Church to learn how to play instruments. Benjamin's instrument of choice? The trumpet! It is really neat (and loud) to hear him practice...he was even showing Christian how to do it. I can't find my silly camera so I couldn't take a picture, but I have that moment in my mind. It was very sweet!
Brian has been busy with football and scouts. Now that he is Assistant Cub Master, he has had several planning meetings this month. And 5 nights of football, along with work...he and I see each other in passing. We have a couples shower with his family tomorrow night that we are both looking forward to. It will be nice to relax with him, and not be at home!
The 2 week countdown starts this Sunday. I am getting a little worried that I may have over looked something, and I'm afraid that I may not be able to pull it all together! I am excited to be Brian's wife, and to take the name Meurer. We got our marriage license on Monday and it was a little overwhelming to walk away knowing that in just a few short days our lives are finally going to be joined, legally and spiritually. I am nervous, and scared...but mostly joyful to be Mrs. Brian Meurer! AHHH!!!
