As if she needed to give us further proof that she is amazing and awesome, my sister took me out on Friday for my bachelorette party. By "took me out" I mean she arranged for some good friends and family to all take a ride to Atlantic City for a little sleepover party.
It was exactly what I needed to relax after last week's "We have to postpone the wedding" debacle - which was coupled with an emergency root canal and a costly car repair. She treated me like a princess, and everyone in our little group got along so well. It was such a lovely break and I cannot thank her enough (and her mother-in-law, who helped with the planning). My sister is really the thoughtful, kind woman / mother that I would like to be 'when I grow up'.
The "other news" is that there is no news. Thank you ALL for your kind comments. I forget how blogging can make you feel so supported, even when you spend too much time alone. For now, nothing has changed. We hope that he will get his visa before September third, but are sort of accepting that we will not. Mind you I am infinitely positive that the USCIS will pull a rabbit out of it's proverbial hat and we will be saying our vows on the previously scheduled day, but plan B's are being put in place.
