Time is drawing near for the wedding, and the last two days have been very busy. My parents arrived in town Tuesday evening, so I’ve spent most of my time with them since their arrival. Yesterday, my Dad and I spent the entire day doing small projects around the house that I had not dared to attempt on my own since I moved in. Unfortunately, one of the projects, to tie up the drain line from the dishwasher, resulted in us causing a leak in one of the lines under the kitchen sink which ended up eating up most of our day and involving multiple trips to the local hardware store. But it was all fixed by the end of the day, and I’m feeling more comfortable with my role of homeowner after working side-by-side with an expert.
This morning, my Dad and I went and picked up our tuxedos and everything worked out except his jacket was a little small, but we should get a replacement by this afternoon. So far, everything is falling into place with the actual wedding. We are a little nervous about the tropical storms down in the Atlantic, but now that Gustav is moving towards the US, it looks like Jamaica might be safe for now. Fingers crossed.
Besides that, there are a couple of newish albums that I’m really enjoying as of late, the Fleet Foxes album & ‘Sun Giant’ EP, and the newest No Age album ‘Nouns’. I’m also enjoying the Portishead album a lot as of late, which has taken a while to grow on me, probably because it is so different from what I had been expecting.
