14 days. Eep!
The bachelor party was easily survived. I, as planned, spent most of my evening on the couch. I did not, as planned, get anything else done. My brain needed a complete break from all things wedding last night, and so that’s what I did. I just shut off the phone, took a break, and had a very needed evening to myself.
The unedited Graham Norton episode had me laughing so hard that I went into a coughing fit (and had to stop watching it for a while). Funny stuff. Sometime around 11:30 or so, I threw in my Blackpool DVD and settled down, fell asleep somewhere into episode 1, and woke up when the guys came home – right as the scene in Funny Girls starts.
Erich and the guys returned just a bit after 2 a.m., and amazingly, the party broke up immediately- apparently the guys were just exhausted on the bus on the way back from Foxwoods (and most had sobered up by that time). I guess this is the sign of a bachelor party when the guys are mostly in their 30s! Most of the guys went home. I ended up with only Matt, Jason, and Erich’s Dad crashing out at our house.
Got up this morning, had coffee and breakfast, and then just relaxed for a while. Some of the guys came back over to watch the Pats game, play board games, and just hang out and plan out characters for Erich’s new d20 game he’ll be kicking off at some point.
The last folks left around 7:30. Erich and I have just been relaxing since then – I have some laundry going, but otherwise, we’re chilling out. We got a LOT of housework done. Other than the kitchen, the entire downstairs is put together and ready for family to see it. The upstairs just needs some work done in my office, and then we’ll be good to go.
One very productive thing for today? We bought our full membership to the Royal Shakespeare Company. So as soon as tickets go on sale online? Oh yes, we shall purchase.
