Today was probably our first sort of normal day. We did something besides sleep and scrounge around for meals. We went over my family’s house and had dinner and opened all the presents that had been left for us at the wedding. We didn’t open the cards, though. Considering the size of the pile, that would’ve probably taken all evening.
Benjamin also showed us a trailer he made of the pictures and short videos he took of the preparation for the wedding and he’s getting to be a really great photographer. He got some really great photos; and his new camera will take HD quality video, which he exploited with excellent results.
Some of our relatives got us all the remaining sets of dishes from the registry, which turned out to be a huge pile in person. It’s one thing to say, “If we have 18 sets of dishes, we can have our family over for dinner”; it’s another to actually SEE the pile of boxes containing only 10 of the 18 sets! They pretty much filled up the car.
We have so many thank you notes to write that I expect my handwriting will get some considerable practice over the next few weeks. I expect it’s going to take about two weeks to get them all out.
