It's 10 p.m on May 20th. In a little under 11 hours, we should be on the road with my fiance, me, both cats, and my wedding dress (and a whole lot of other "stuff") heading for his parents' house in the midwest. We'll be there around a week and a half until we head to my parents' house for another week and a half, at the end of which... we'll be married!!!

If I had a little more energy, I would literally be jumping up and down. Earlier, I was. :-) My fiance, S, laughs at me a lot because I get so excited. I can't believe it's finally (almost) here. We've been engaged since October, and I gotta say, it feels like we've been waiting forever! When I said that earlier this evening, S said that we have been - but he's been waiting longer. He's been waiting 30 years, 9 months, and 9 days while I've *only* been waiting for 29 years, 7 months, and 15 days. :-)

In other news, I've decided to try to walk more. I'm going to be living in this awesome neighborhood, and since biking isn't that safe around here, I figure I'll start walking more. Hopefully, it'll get me in better shape and maybe I'll lose the weight I've gained this year. And maybe I'll meet some neighbors... So this morning after S went to his final day cleaning out his classroom and doing paperwork, I got in some comfy clothes, loaded up my mp3 player, and walked around the neighborhood. It was a glorious 70 degrees, so it wasn't hot at all. I walked 1.3 miles in a little under 30 minutes. I have an audio bible on my mp3 player, so I listened to Psalms 8-19 on the walk. It was so wonderful to silently repeat the Psalms as I listened, praising God for His holiness and glory while also listening to birds chirping and life blowing around me.

I should try to get some sleep. I usually have so much nervous energy that I can't sleep more than 4 or 5 hours before a trip, but I promised S that since I am insisting we leave in the morning - not, like last year, at 1 p.m.!!! - that I'll drive the first leg. [I'm not making him get up when I'd like to, around 5 a.m., but I will go nuts if we don't leave until noon, so we're compromising and planning to try to leave around 8:30.] That way he can rest for a while, rest his back and knee and wait for his medicine to kick in before having to drive the four of us on the interstate. I'm guessing I'll probably make it 3 hours before I'll need a break. That all said, I probably need more than my usual 5 hours.

So night, all. I might not be on here for a while, cause I'm getting married!!!

In case your checking your blog, and I really hope you're not, please know I'm thinking of and praying for you and S. If my math is correct, you'll be married in 10 days! So excited for you both. Hope the trip is going well and you're both feeling good.
May God bless you both individually and in sacred unity.
