Wedding - weather says rain is in the forecast. I have said some prayers. I really am not nervous about the wedding. I do not know any of the aspects of it except it is expensive. The bride or the groom have not revealed much. I am guessing my son is not interested in all the "wedding" stuff. He just mentions how ridiculous is the expense of it. <BR> If the bride and groom end up pay... Thu, 12 Nov 2015 09:55:44 EST Honor the Vets http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6030309 Good Morning; My DH took a photo of our son to work where they are honoring "your favorite" vet. We sent a photo to our son and he was pleased. Later that afternoon, DS and his soon to be bride got into a big fight. MIL gave the bride money for things for the wedding and asked to be repaid with the money they will get from the guests. MIL is so crude in every way of dealing with her daughter and my son. I am giving them money for a gift, but do not want MIL to get it. I told DS that MIL...

PBS has a documentary tonight "Debt of Honor." <em>104</em> He has gone though hell and back since he has been home. I see progress. It may be slower than he would like.

There might be rain. I am getting flowers tomorrow to start making little center pieces for the rehearsal dinner. I still do not have a head count. From what I gather wedding is little unorganized.

I told her that a girl needs to ge...

They are great kids. GS is so mobile now and more fun. He has learned to play with the kitchen we have. He puts the pots and pans on the stove. It is fun to watch. We occupy my GD with reading a book or other stuff - this allows GS to play uninterrupted and he has a longer attention span then we thought. DD called later in the afternoon yesterday with their car stalling out with a problem of bad gas. We have...
