jamie’s elsewhere – let’s pretend we’re giants
i don’t know if you’ve ever seen someone, maybe a magician or something equally lame, spin plates as part of their act, but usually when they do, they’re running around like crazy trying to make sure that everything doesn’t come crashing down. right now i feel about as lame as a magician.
i don’t know if you may have heard, but i very recently asked my best friend to marry me and by some lapse in her judgement she said yes. i’m pretty excited about it and don’t tell her this, but she could do WAY better. anyway i figured that the whole getting engaged part was going to be the hardest part of this whole thing… little did i know what would be the incredible torrent of new things to do that is planning a wedding.
maybe it’s because i never subjected myself to movies like “the wedding planner” or “my best friend’s wedding” but i really just thought these things just kinda worked themselves out. like you just go to the wedding store and they have a menu like at a restaurant and i’d just order a number 2, hold the doves. not the case.
so now, on top of raising support, working part time, taking time to develop my walk with Christ, taking care of my dog crash, i’ve got to help plan a wedding. i’ve been busy before but not like this. and the worst part is, and don’t tell her this, i have no idea what i’m doing…
so i’m running around trying to keep the plates spinning without dropping the ball in any of my responsibilities. so rather then drone on about all of the nonsense i’ve got to be doing i’ll sign off with this. a dancing monkey, for your enjoyment.
