See you later, alligator!

Well, the long wait is almost over. A year ago our younger son proposed marriage and this Saturday is the big day. My two BFFs are flying in from hither & yon to join me in this major event and I can't wait to see them!
Sparkin' is getting hard. My older son is taking me on a surprise day-long adventure tomorrow (to celebrate my recent b'day). I want to make yummy, fattening treats for my company. My nerves and emotions are screaming for chocolate. I awakened at 3 am..watching the calendar fly by and craving sugar.
The vigorous River Fitness class, ST and Zumba class have been shoved aside for "more important" duties....like learning how to apply make up! (my husband is wondering who kidnapped his wife & where the heck is she?) I have to hold a magnifying glass up to the magnifying mirror to find my eyelashes without my glasses! I keep looking for 'my curling iron for my eyelashes"...what's that thing called anyway? We'll have to build on a new bathroom to accommodate my lotions, potions, brushes, pads and goop!
I haven't worn "high" heels in 4-5 years (mine are just under 2" high and they feel like stilts). The new undergarments are choreographed to push up, suck in, cover up and expose in all the right places. All together now, 1-2-3!
So, it's a test of my new lifestyle. With champagne flowing and outrageously delicious tidbits at every step, nerves jangling and eyes blinking back tears....off I ride into the sunset. I'll return a newly minted "mother-in-law." gulp.
