The other side of the wedding is much calmer than the anticipation leading up to it. Duh. Truth is, I didn’t think much about the what next part. Now that I’m here, and the brides are duly married, I find that I’m very happy. This happiness and the wondering that comes along with it buoys me up as I wrestle with all the aggravating details of getting back to work and dealing with the last minute stuff that smacks me in the face so rudely. Life, as you have probably noticed yourself, is not terribly polite. But, these days, when I’m anxious about all the little crap, I remember the wedding and my feet dance a little. Maybe mother-in-laws have a honeymoon period, too. Or maybe I’ll just keep being happy.
