Well, we made it. Karla and I finally got married...and we survived. Although we did have numerous snags to deal with:
#1 Yesterday morning I realized that I had forgotten the wedding music. So my brother had to manually copy all of our songs from Itunes onto a CD. These were on two computers, which made matters worse. In the end, the DJ didn't use any of our music, but we didn't care. We were way too tired.
#2 Karla's grandfather Irv was supposed to walk her down the aisle (Karla's dad is deceased). On my way to the wedding, I got a call from the best man that there had been an accident. Turns out that Irv had a heart attack while driving and then crashed a block away from the church. It was a scary scene, and no one was quite sure if Irv was ok. We all ended up at the hospital in our wedding stuff, waiting for news. Irv was in stable condition, so we went ahead with the wedding. But wow, talk about an emotional rollercoaster.
#3 Karla's brother got sick at the reception. He may have been stressed from the day's earlier events, or he may have had a bug. Either way he was donating to the prcelain god for most of the evening.
Well that's it. It was a really long day, but we made it. We were super tired, and Karla is still sleeping. Everyone was really great at the wedding -- it was so much fun. It's too bad you Madison folks couldn't go.
