A Song, A Wedding, and A Few Slips and Slides
Friday, January 26, 2007
Last weekend my husband's brother got married. We made the 700 mile trip to Lancaster, PA in pretty decent time. It only took about 10 hours including stops. Of course my husband was the Best Man and I sang Be Thou My Vision.
For some reason I had a mental block about memorizing the lyrics, but I know better than to worry. There was a music stand and I was able to have the sheet music in front of me.
The wedding was just beautiful. It's one of those special relationships you know God put together. I'll put a picture in my Photo Gallery of my BIL & SIL.
As you know, weddings, especially the ones you're involved with, include a LOT of food. Rich, fatty, calorie-laden food. It was tempting, but I tried to at the very least be conscious about what I put into my mouth. The great news? I only gained .4 lbs from the trip! That's right, only 2/5 of a pound! Yippie!
The drive home was terrible. By the time we reached Virginia there was a HUGE ice storm system. We drove for 3 hours in the snow and ice slipping and sliding every few miles. I was numb by the 5th car we saw that had flipped, and I still can't believe there were at least 10 wrecked or flipped cars all together. Sadly, one of those was already covered in caution tape indicating a fatality.
I'm really glad to live where I do. The weather may not be able to make up it's mind (it was in the 20's this morning and ended up with a high of around 51), but at least we don't have a lot of severe weather.
