Whole lotta labia.

We finished assembling the programs. On one side is the order of ceremony and on the other is the list of the wedding party, an aknowledgment to our parents, and a little note remembering our grandparents... ST's maternal and paternal grandparents, my maternal grandparents and paternal grandmother.

Yesterday, on the way home from KC, my father called to say that his father had passed away quickly and painlessly on Saturday night.

I am selfishly obsessing over the fact that I've missed my chance to go visit him this Thanksgiving and make up for the kind of neglect that comes with a busy life. I am missing him terribly. I guess I'm not done with the programs.

Ronnie. I miss him. I keep thinking about the summers I'd spend with him and playing in the kiwi orchard.

Also? I'm craving jell-o salad. I'm so Protestant.

It was always banana pudding at our family's funerals. A huge honking bowl of vanilla pudding, nilla wafers, bananas and cool whip.

white trash and protestant.

I still miss my grandma and my mamaw and they've been gone many years now. Maybe it would make you feel better to write him a letter? not to send, just to burn or float away "to him"? Sometimes doing stuff like that helps me. I know you're not big on the woowoo stuff, though. ♥

I think that sounds wonderful. And maybe he'll know how during the planning process for this wedding I kept thinking about him all the time. And how my mother and I spent our last dinner with ST talking about him. The stuff I was able to do because of the Christmas and birthday money he spent that I never thanked him for. All the things I should have said and never did. Never did Ronnie. I think a letter would help a lot.

Also.. God I'm so glad you're coming up here, I'm so glad I'm going to be able to see you. I miss you.

I'm glad I'm coming, too. I've been looking at the calendar and counting the days for weeks and weeks now. :) It's been two years since I've seen your sweet face in person. This is unacceptable!
