The things I do for love

November 3rd, 2011 | Tags: ,

Today I set off on another grand adventure. I am bound for northern New Jersey to participate in Rob & Caitlin’s wedding, but I have many stopping points both on the way there and on the way back. First stop is my mother and her fiancĂ©, where I’ll finish labeling the beer and have dinner with them. Crack o’dawn will see me on the road again to South Plainfield for the rehearsal, wedding, and aftermreception, and after brunch on Sunday I’m headed south again. But not straight back to Raleigh! I first get to do a lunchish thing with a dear friend in Trenton, and then I’ll crash at my sister’s place (The Icehouse) in Ellicott City. THEN I get to go home to my loving family.

I am bringing a total of 9 full cases of beer to the wedding. I had ideally projected 12 when in the throes of production, but I only ended up with 11 actual cases with beer in them. It turns out not all the boxes were full, so consolidation brought it down to about 9.5 cases. And after “quality assurance testing,” that brings us down to just a few beers over the line. But I am not worried. I have made enough beer to get just about anybody just as drunk as you please.

Grad school panic has dissipated in the short term; I’m registered for the spring, and my projects are all coming together. My mind is now solely on what I need to do to make this wedding a raging success. Off to pack the car, shower, and get moving!

P.S. I’m still doing NaNoWriMo. I have a massive word deficit, but I ain’t giving up! I’ll post about that when I get home next week.
