Have you ever done something so stupid......

you could kick yourself from now to next week????

My latest screw-up (note the "latest"!!!) concerns Bruce.

As you know, he's currently in Philadelphia and believe it or not, his 3 months are up and he's home next week. I booked the day off to pick him up from the airport before he even left these shores. Everything's set - I've got Wednesday afternoon off to make some cupcakes and make sure everything is just SO and then all day Thursday as his flight arrives at 0655 in Glasgow. Had planned on stopping for breakfast at Ikea (they do a really mean breakfast!) and then home.

Imagine my horror when Bruce tonight said "See you Friday". What "Friday"??!!! You're home Thursday. Nope - he flies out on Thursday and arrive 0655 FRIDAY morning. I have weddings on Friday!!!!!!!!!! I have the entire following week off but the day he comes home I'm up to my eyes in brides and grooms.........

ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Think you could get the future marriage blissers to move their ceremonies down the road to the airport?
