Wedding Planning Makes You Stupid - Tom and Lisa's Wedding September 11, 2010

Yesterday, I forgot to go to work...

Some of you may know that I have every-other Monday off and flex those hours over the other 9 days in a two-week pay period. Well, I thought yesterday was one of those "days off", but I was wrong. My co-worker called at 11:30am while I was sitting on the couch, in my pjs, drinking coffee.

Lisa: Hello?
Co-Worker: Hey, where are you?
L: At home...
CW: Um, don't you have feeding group today?
L: Uhhhhh... FH&D*^#$KJ!!!!!

Needless to say, I have never gotten from couch to desk faster! 45 minutes from phone call to dropping my stuff at my cubicle and running like the wind to pacify my very patient patients.

Today I submitted to my supervisor the laundry list of days off required this summer. I will be attending 7 weddings between now and my own wedding in September. I am maid of honor in one in June (Kelly's) and a bridesmaid in another (Alli's). 5 of those weddings are out of town. Plus 2 bridal shower/bachelorette weekends. Plus my own wedding and honeymoon. I guess I'd better not get sick! Thank goodness for my INSANE amount of vacation time! God Bless La Rabida and their employee benefits package!

Now if only I can remember to GO to work and not waste vacation time on being stupid...

Maybe not stupid so much as blissfully oblivious?You pull off spacing out really well!

one of my favorite memories is of your parents wedding. i was sitting next to your other grandmother, ann wright, in the church. your mom came down the aisle crying her eyes out and ann started crying too. and then she looked at me and my dry eyes and said to me...why in the hell aren't you crying! she was "refreshingly honest" and i loved her for it. (that's the polite way to describe her)
