Most of the house church and some other friends surprised Carol and I with a party last night. I was so pumped about it. Carol and I got cool gifts and we were surrounded by friends. It was really cool. Thank you every one!
It is one more week until I’m married. I’ve invaded Carol’s house and created myself a “man cave” in basement. Moving over has been a lot of work even when you do it over the course of a few weeks. People keep asking me if I’m counting down the days or if I’m excited. Now that most of the heavy work of planning and moving is done I’m now started to get excited. Because Carol and I are next door neighbours we’ve gradually integrated our lives over the last 3 months. Some of that transition has been hard for both of us. I’ve had to radically reorient my life around multiple priorities. Carol has had someone invade her domain. Up until now the wedding was just another priority to attend to. We really haven’t taken the space needed to celebrate what is going on. That is why it was so cool to have our friends come over and celebrate with us. I was really encouraged by it. Thanks everyone!
