Wedding Belles...err...Bells

It's the evening before I leave for Southern California for my daughter's wedding.  It's been a  day of nostalgia as I faced my husband's first day of retirement and packed my mother-of-the-bride dress.  Tears seem to happen readily today. 

Our favourite Petsitter came over to get the lowdown on the gang and insure that the routine is maintained.  I'm always a little embarrassed to go over everybody's eating schedules and routines.  I asked Paula (the pet sitter) if we were her only crazy clients.  I had hoped she would laugh and say "Naaaah.....this is NOTHING!"   But instead she just smirked.  :)   Things are much better than it was a  few years ago - I had pages and pages of directions! 

The guest room bed has clean sheets and bedding and is ready for Paula the Pet Sitter...I hope she doesn't mind a LITTLE cat hair:

 How do cats know where to go EXACTLY where they aren't supposed to be?

It's going to be a four crazy, emotional days for me.  Our volunteers have told me not to worry about things.   I never really do - the  rescue is in good hands without me.

My prime mission for the week is to be able to make it through the wedding without making a fool out of myself and sobbing.  An "ugly wedding cry" will not make for good photography.

Have a great week all!

Keep the speeches funny and not overly sentimental, you don't want your daughter mad at you because you made her mascara run! I have to admit, I would love to be the pet sitter while you are away. Sounds like fun! Have a great time and blog all about it when you return! What a great way for David to start his retirement.
