it's time

I guess it really is time to make that general announcement: yup, I'm getting hitched. The PIG and I will be traveling to India with a faithful friend to meet his extended family and throw some rice on the fire. I'm happy to report that while we're there I will get to see the Taj Mahal and about a billion Indian folk.

Soon after that we'll travel to Michigan to have the second family ceremony and finally home to Houston where all of our friends from far and wide are invited to a shindig (no ceremony, just party). That'll probably be the end of August/early September.

So I'm sporting a giant ring with 7 garnets in it in a honeycomb shape. I'll post pics when I bother to take them but for now you'll have to use your imaginations. I'm busy working on my creepy crawlers class and tomorrow I get to spend the day doing final grades for my kiddos. Friday was the last day of school and I repressed many tears. Simultaneously I had to threaten one kid to stop bugging another kid or I'd shove a sock down his throat, so really it was a day like any other.

Thanks for all of the good wishes, everyone, and yes, you're invited to the reception in houston!

JP--PIG stands for pungent indian guy, his self-description.

Congrats Ranger! This is great news. :)

And thanks for the PIG explication; been wondering about that for a while now. Just figured it was perhaps another of my generationally-challenged issues of non-understanding. ;)
