Comedy of errors!

My husband (Nick) and I are attending a wedding in Bar Harbor, we arrived here on Thursday. Part of the weekend planning includes a Maine BBQ on Saturday night, also the same night that they are having their rehearsal dinner. On Friday afternoon we get a note that says "Rehearsal dinner, 8 pm, QuarterDeck" so, we believe that it must be for the dinner Saturday night. Saturday we take the shuttle in to town, show up at the Quarterdeck at 8:05 pm and they tell us that the dinner was the previous night!

I'm really irritated with myself because I felt uneasy about the entire thing, when we got the invite, didn't have a date or day on it. I thought it odd that they would change the venue, although the weather here has been iffy so I could sort of understand as it was supposed to be outside or in a tent. but sigh, we never asked.

We didn't rush back to the hotel as we suspected by the time we got back it might have been over/close to over.
So we missed 2 nights of fun socializing . . . sigh. Today is the wedding, let's hope we manage to get there on time!

Lovely up here - in Bar Harbor.
Nick and I biked on Friday and hiked up Cadillac Mountain yesterday - we went up the Gorge Trail, climbing up boulders and jump over rocks - fun! tiring both days.
I have a great kitty sitter - (several good ones) the one I'm using this weekend stays over night at the house :-) and spends most of the day there.

gee! folks have to be more careful when they give folks notes. I'd be irritated myself but more with them for not being more precise. Socializing is what weddings are about.

I sometimes ask about things so much -- to be precise-- that folks think I'm nuts. But hey, it gets things clear in my head.

You know, I really thought it was all odd, especially them changing the venue time and location on such short notice, I reallllly should have asked.
The brides parents were in a room just down from us, AND I could have asked the hotel.

Also, the next day, I saw on the counter at the hotel the Saturday agenda.
I can really only blame myself. Given there wasn't a date and time, I should have asked rather than assumed.
I was so annoyed with myself.
But I made DARN sure I didn't miss the wedding. It was incredible.
The bride was lovely, hair, dress.
She also sang (lovely voice). It was a jewish wedding - what a blast.
The rabbi explained things, festive, must loved it.
