Goin’ to the Grubers and I’m/Gonna Get Married…

Thursday, May 6th, 2010, 8:04 am

Not a lot of time so:

  • Last Thursday we got the OK to close on our house, and we did so on Friday. We thought it wouldn’t be until the end of May when we closed. 48 hours later we had the house.
  • Lindsay’s mom has been fighting cancer and on Sunday we got the sad news that she might not have much time left with us.
  • And since Lindsay wants her mom to be there when she gets married…we’re getting married today!

So it’s been rather a hectic few days. But in about five hours I’m gonna make an honest woman of Lindsay. So much for me losing 50 pounds and looking sleek for the ceremony. I’m sure I’ll post some pics of the nuptials in the next few days. Not sure if we’re still gonna have our reception at the Aquarium in September, probably best to table those discussions till later.

So, time to find my cleanest T-shirt and a pair of shorts without holes in them and go get married!

    That’s wonderful news about the house and the wedding (but not about Lindsay’s mom– sending good thoughts there). Have fun!

    Have been thinking about your guys a lot recently. Lindsay’s mom is in our thoughts. Enjoy today and the resulting lifetime of wedded bliss. You’re one of the good ones.

    It certainly doesn’t sound like the traditional wedding. In fact, it sounds far better. Your decisions for the wedding seem to have been made for all the best reasons.

    The picture of you and your bride on Twitter looks perfect — a happy couple with big smiles on a lovely day. I don’t think you could have had a better wedding for 100x the cost and a year of planning.

    A wedding is a ceremony that tells the world you are married, nothing more. Marriage is in your heart and, if you are lucky, in your soul. May your marriage be blessed for the rest of your days.

    You were the first poker blog I ever bookmarked. I haven’t been keeping up at all the past couple of years due to some personal stuff but came here today to see you got married. Congrats and best wishes for a long, content and joyful marriage.
