Newlyweds!


It's been almost a month since my last post. I admit, I've been a little preoccupied with other matters. Like-- getting married, moving, honeymooning, etc..

So, please forgive me for my delay.

We had a great time. The ceremony was beautiful. Amazing weather. We wanted to keep things low-key and were (thankfully) successful.



It's been a great time, but, I have found myself to be especially scatterbrained lately. I hope it's just a phase. I'm sure my new hubby hopes so too.

For example, just the other day I managed to lose the same object THREE separate times!

What in the world!?!

And, of course, you can imagine the roller coaster of despair and relief I put myself (and Robby) through. I must say that he was awesome throughout and never doubted that all would be well in the end. He was so calm and confident. Which, of course, was extremely annoying to me as I was attempting to tear the place apart and have a fit.



The good news is, I managed to find the elusive object and get it out of my clumsy hands and to its proper recipient before I had a chance to lose it again. Hooray!
Robby was right. All was well.
He weathered the freak-outs with great style and patience. I like that.

I'm wondering if there are any others out there who have suffered from wedding- related brain loss who might be able to help me. Is this just a temporary thing or are the effects permanent? And, if it is is only temporary, how long will it be before I can expect my ability to focus (on anything, for any amount of time) to return?

I would really appreciate any advice you may be able to give.

P.S. Please use short sentences in your explanation. I'm easily distracte...

Congratulations! I just heard the good news the other day. All I really want to know is, does your husband play 42?

Hey, congradulations on getting married. I don't know if I knew you were getting married, but congradulations anyway.

Hey guys! Yes, it's true... I got hitched. Thank you for your kind wishes.
And no, Brad, he does NOT play 42!!! I know, I know.
We're going to have to sit him down with you and Amy and teach him how to throw bones Texas style!

Yipee!!!! Congrats neighbor :-)
I am sooo thrilled for you and this new road of exploration you have dared to travel. lol
I am sure the scatterbrain is only temporary. Nothing that a good cup of COFFEE can't fix! Is it almost time?
Talk to you soon.
Tanya

Hello neighbor and wondershrink! It's so nice to see you lovely ladies here. Thank you for your kind and generous comments.
Yes, I am indeed in need of some coffee and therapy.
It will have to be later rather than sooner, I'm afraid, as the reception tour '06 begins now. We've got to travel the countryside to see all of the new in-laws and out-laws.
But, don't feel sorry for me! I get to kick it all off in San Diego this weekend! Woo Hoo!

I think I agree with Tanya H: "do the Bou" is what I say. After all, it's the only legal addictive stimulant that actually keeps you focused for the bargain price of $1.60 for a tall-room-for-cream Kamodo drip. Who needs perscriptions?

Also, and most importantly, YOU LOOKED GORGEOUS!!! My goodness, Mary Chelle!

I loved visiting you just before the Big Day. I had a blast visiting the monuments at night, (even though my legs were numb in that DC air.) But the best part was spending time with you in your new home. I prayed for God to bless you with a great church, husband and wonderful friends...and He said "Yes!" to all three! Don't you just love Him?
