This weekend Autism had to take a back seat . My good friend is getting married in October.
We drove down to Atlanta to spend the weekend in a big city and also help my friend in selecting her lehnga ( sort of a skirt )
The wedding theme is East meets west
The bride is my good friend ( indian ) the groom is from Minnesota ( I really like him )
The bridesmaids are white and the Matron of honor is brown ( me LOL )
I love the big cities - I went to Trader Joe's one of my favorite stores and bought this - See what I bought
I love their simmer sauces ( of course now that I have said this out loud- they will all turn out to be really bad recipes )
We stayed in their Midtown condo and I rode in their BMW !!
The weekend started out very nice- it was so great to hang out with these good friends and see a very different kind of life.No kids , no backyard , no suburbs, walk to the grocery store etc
However alfway through I got some very bad news!
My hale and hearty and completely adorable nephew suddenly started having seizures and went temporarily blind . This story hopefully as a happy ending as my smart sister took him to one of the best child neuros and turns out he had a dead tapeworm in his brain( its more common than you would think - just google it )
There is a good chance that this situation will resolve on its own ( praying hard )
Also one of my Profs from grad school ( gentle eccentric ) suddenly took a gun and shot his wife and two other people that he was acting with in a theater - he is still at large
Heartbroken for their kids - 8 and 10
Poor R took a real back seat and spend a lot of time o the computer and also had loads of allergies ( turns our he is even allergic to dogs )
I will be a better floortimer this week
