Thank you! I can't believe my first wedding is less than a week away! (Civil marriage is the only legal one here in France. We'll be married this coming Friday, then the church wedding will happen exactly one year later! This is my first marriage, but Gabriel's second. Hard to believe it's all happening. Hopefully I will be much lighter this time next year so I can actually find a wedding dress here - French women are definitely NOT like their American sisters when it comes to size - they're all little things here!
I appreciate your feedback and encouragement. I'm really struggling with getting moving - I hate exercise, and with my arthritis & crutches, I run out of steam very fast. Walking wears me out. We don't have any place to do water aerobics here yet. I'm struggling with motivation, and with my outlook these last few days. I think my stress levels with the wedding, plus my mom is moving to France to live with us on Tuesday plus the wedding and meeting people I've never met before - all of that comes into play. On top of all of that, my daughter who I gave up for adoption nearly 35 years ago just searched and found me last week! It's exciting, but I worry that I may say or do something to scare her away. I've bee alternating between extreme euphoria and total depression all week! She's a wonderful girl it seems, well raised, and happily married, but she has M.S. So my worry button has been fully engaged. Ack! The fun never ends!!! LOL!
Anyway, that's my life these days in a nutshell! Thanks again for your kind words - I truly appreciate it!
