My Good Friend's Wedding

I've been neglecting my blog and my friends' blogs. This is something I feel badly about, but work and family needs dictate and this brings no returns, so it's the most expendable. I try to average at least one post per day, however, as I find it a welcome chance to opine in a relatively harmless fashion.

My good friend at work got married this past weekend, and the in-laws were in town to babysit. Yes, they drove 900 miles to watch the kids for one night and then left (OK, they stayed for 4 days, but they'll be driving for just as many days, so it's basically a wash). I like when my in-laws are here, however I also find myself always a little stressed out anymore when they're here. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with a sense of obligation to entertain - they're family, but they aren't "my" family in that I didn't grow up with them. With that and my basketball picks going south, I've been a little stressed. But I still was able to grill last night (hamburgers and hot dogs - yum!). And in all, it was a good weekend.

We had a great time with you two (et al) at the wedding. I'm glad the in-laws were able to let you leave the compound childless for an evening.

You're blog posting frequency is most impressive, though the content is admittedly thinner than before. Notwithstanding, you're far ahead of me. My last post was 2/15, and my FB-averse friend from Georgia doesn't even know we bought a house.
