I didn't sleep all that great last night. Woke up no less than half a dozen times for various reasons. Had to take an antacid pill at one point, then some ibuprofen, and then managed to sleep the last few hours relatively uninterrupted. But now it's nearly 10AM, and I'm up, and the day is going to slowly, but surely, start getting underway.

Today's date? May 24th, 2009.

I told Janine last night: in one year, we will be celebrating our anniversary. My way of saying "today's the day" I suppose. It sounded clever to me. But here we are, a year after things got set into motion, a year of planning, thinking, musing, stressing, and everything else that goes into making one of these things happen.

And now here we are. It's the day. Janine is getting ready to head out to the spa where she will be spending a few hours getting massaged, treated, made up, and generally being prepared. At that point I won't see her again until a little after 5PM today. At which point... well, you know what comes next.

My stomach won't really sit still. I don't want to call it nerves: it's not really the same thing. But it's something... something that makes my stomach feel like one of those trapeze acts. Suddenly it's up in the air flying around, then it lands and hangs out for a little while. Yeah, maybe that's not a very good explanation, I don't know.

It has been so good to have friends and family out. I've been trying to hang out with everybody as we go, and have really enjoyed catching up with people. I'll have to write more about that later.

I think I am going to be finished with this now and go off to do some other things... hmm... like get ready for the day.

As someone who has to graduate 300 kids at a time and who always stands on stage with the PhDs as they prepare to go forward and be made Dr. Somebody, here are my top tips, given most people are crap at transitional ceremonies:

- you will be nervous as fuck. There is no getting around this. try not to vomit, and all shall be well.
- check to see if your shoulders are in their normal position. If they are currently hovering around the tops of your ears, it is possible that soon you will not be able to actually breathe, which could put a dampener on things.
- as you are standing there waiting for Janine, and while things are going on in the ceremony, wriggle your toes every so often. Sounds weird, but seriously, it works.
- you may not remember a whole heap about the ceremony or the day. This, however, is why megapixels and friends were invented, so it's cool.
- although you may be frothing at the mouth with nervous excitement, although you may feel this is rushing toward you and you'll never be ready, although you may suddenly simultaneously think: "am I drooling? is my mouth in the correct position? Did I leave the iron on?" (all valid concerns), don't worry, because something WONDERFUL is about to happen to you.
- when all else fails, smile like a delighted, dazed idiot. This shouldn't be too much of stretch.
- if you do not post pix, all of DW will come after you, so keep your clients happy, m'kay?

Cheers and hugs and good wishes and we can't wait for you to be celebrating your first anniversary either, from

Alexandra
