Back from a break.

We've had quite a lot going on recently, so that is the reason for the hiatus from this blog. Several things have happened, one in particular that kept me away. All three of my guinea pigs died in a freak accident Aug. 25. Dave and I have been missing them and cried several times for them for what happened. Sassy was 4.5, Penny and Rosie 2. I'm just now getting to where I'm remembering the funny, heart-warming things that made them part of our family instead of thinking of the sadness of losing them. They were all sweet, good girls, and we do miss them. They were buried together in the back yard, next to all the guinea pigs we've loved over the years here.

We have also chosen what to do about the wedding. We'll be getting married near the end of October at the courthouse here, then eating dinner with immediate friends and family at a nice restaurant here. We'll be driving to the mountains in North Carolina afterward to spend a few days to ourselves, pottering around and enjoying each other's company. We haven't been able to see each other much recently because his job has been so stressful and time-consuming, so this little trip is what I think I most look forward to (aside from being finally married to my best friend).

A few weeks later, we'll host a housewarming/reception at our new house with more friends to drop in and eat and see the new place. Dave isn't too enthusiastic about having so many people in the house, but we'll get through it. I hope he will enjoy himself. And we will finally be living under the same roof. No goodbyes anymore. Yay!

Here's a little peek at what I've been up to recently - in other words, not much. Too much else has been on our minds recently for me to find time for crafting, which is usually my stress reliever. So you can guess who is stressed out.

Oh I can't even imagine what it would be like to lose all pigs at once. That has to be so awful and hard. My thoughts are with you and Dave, and I shall also think of your girls!
I lost Martha not too long ago, too. :(

As for your wedding plans, they sounds rather similar to my own! And I was very happy to be unstressed on my wedding day. It was perfect. I even made a wedding cake for Seth and I! So I hope you have the same sort of feelings. Not everyone needs/wants a big herfy wedding.

Thanks. I'm sorry to hear about your Martha too. :(

Unstressy is great! Especially since I've been stressed seemingly all year about something or other.
