Yay it's Friday!
WR: FMIL and I are ordering the invitations tonight *hopefully*. We were supposed to order them last night but she "lost the book," which isn't surprising. She and I have two very different personality types and I have to conjur up a lot of patience to deal with most of our interactions. I'm Type A and very efficient and I get impatient easily and she is Type B and gets distracted and disorganized very easily. However, she is paying for the invitations so *OOOMMMMMMMM*.
Yesterday I got the rental houses reserved for the bridal party, which will cost the 1/3 of the price of a hotel for the weekend and cut out a 40 min trip every time they travel from the wedding venue to the hotel. Waaaay easier and nicer!
I also got my dress back from alterations. The lady sewed in the front modesty piece so I get to rip those stiches out between the ceremony and reception. Joy! It shouldn't be too hard. She wasn't able to do what I originally wanted because of the way the modesty piece is designed(fragile) and she didn't want to ruin it. I won't ruin it by cutting out the stitches she sewed, either, it'll just take a few extra minutes, which I have accounted for during cocktail hour.
NWR: I'm hoping my dad is discharged from the hospital today! He had hernia surgery yesterday as an outpatient but his BP and white blood cell count was too low for him to go home afterwards so they kept him overnight. He sounded like he was in pretty good spirits when I called him this morning and the nurse had just taken another blood sample off for labs. I'm having my wedding florist deliver some flowers to my parents' house today so hopefully he will be there to get them :-)
I'm also hoping that FI gets two survey flights in today. He's got two survey lines to fly off of Cape Cod and another one in Nova Scotia. Hopefully the winds aren't strong and the scientist can actually see any whales or seals or whatever they're looking for nowadays because if they do, he can be home for Thanksgiving and we can just do our own little thing without family :-) It would be waaaay less stressful and we could get a bunch of stuff done for the wedding and Christmas presents!
