Have you ever had that feeling where you plan and plan for an event and then you suddenly find yourself in the middle of it?
I felt that way at the birth of all three kids - after 9 long months of anticipation I suddenly was in labor and there was no turning back. Kind of like being strapped in a roller coaster and heading up the hill - knowing whatever lies ahead you were going to have to face.
As Brian and I were sitting at Joel's basketball tournament in Richmond on Tuesday I had that same feeling. We had known about this tournament since the beginning of the school year and now here we were.
Even more surreal to me was knowing that the next time I would feel that feeling would be at the wedding - just ONE week away.
