Venue and wedding dress

Laura came home this weekend and yesterday we looked at three venues, all very nice.  Laura is deciding between Lake View and Lake Peril.  I do believe she will pick Lake View, which is sophisticated and elegant.   We the went to Vows in Water town,MA and tried on five dresses and picked the fourth one.  Heart neck line beaded chess and soft flow to the ground and a full length Vail.  She looks beautiful.  So in one day we have a venue and a wedding dress.  I spoke to the maid of honor and decided where to have the bridal shower.  Ina tent in my yard.  I have a beautiful back yard.  It will happen some time late May.  Tim her fiance' is not from around here and groom's men live every where.  Jacob, Tim's best man and Randy, my husband are planing a trip to Fox woods.   Then the rehearsal dinner will be planned for the night before.  We are also having an after party at the house after the reception at the house.  Well it seems well planned so far.

The excitement has quieted down

Laura and I are looking at venues and wedding gowns next weekend.  Hopeful we will find the place she likes and can plan from there.  Things are quiet other wise but I am restless.  I don't know why.   I just feel everything is hitting at once and I often feel overwhelmed.  No sure where my attention needs to be.

Big News! My daughter was engaged last night.  He is nice guy.  He is romantic, the setting to this event was my daughters favorite place, Linclon Memorial where they share their second date.  She is so happy.  We are  happy for them! Now we have a wedding to plan. This is exciting!
As I said Randy and I like to travel.  This is Jamaica outside my window.  We went several years ago.and we had a ball.  The weather was great everyday. The Beach was white sand and sea shells.  This was all inclusive.  Meals and drinks free. It was so relaxing.  I can't wait to go back!

Last One Moving Out

Rich didn't get the job but applying all over Boston.  He has a place available to him to live and is willing to take several jobs need be to meet rent and loans.  I would rather he had the job first but this way will push things out of need for him.  If it does not work out there is always home to come back to in any case.  Well, now it is live with out children. My husband and I, as most Empty Nester, are struggling with this concept.  We don't want to be old before we truly are so we join the gym.  I was recently in a car accident and am still dealing with broken ribs.  I am able to do little but went back today.  My husband and I have different interests than we did twenty-six years ago.  So we are writing our bucket list, things that interest us.  We found we love to travel and have done more of that lately.  We have discussed retirement and where we want to live wen tat time comes along.  It is like a roller coaster because with the kids we  were busy with them and their lives.  Now what?  Big question to answer.
