Fire Alarm

So three Saturdays ago I woke up to my wedding day. I walk out into the living room to my son staring at me, and some bum on my couch. Actually it was my best friend Jon, who had stayed with me to keep my nerves calm. We were going to watch movies and eat junk and talk about the silly things we did as kids. Funny part, I think we were both asleep by 10.

My son is two years old, and he never wakes up this early. I pick him up, and he feels like he has a fever, setback #1. I try and take care of him the best I can, while getting myself together as well. Then my phone starts with the text messages and phone calls. One of which is the mother in law who is supposed to follow me to the Inn, is running late. Setback #2. On the way to the Inn I look back and they are no longer behind me, setback #3.

Finally... we get to the Inn, everyone's in a room, getting ready, smooth sailing. Then someone comes down and tells us that the fire alarm had been going off. Well that was news to us, ours never went off. Good thing it wasn't real. So it goes off again, a few minutes later, everyone's leaving their rooms, and angry. The staff blamed all of this on one of my girls, and my niece. BIG setback. After the FOURTH alarm, and my kids were all in their room, the staff realized it wasn't us and apologized. Tears were shed, people were worried, curse words went flying, but everyone was safe.

In the end we still got married. We still are in love. We still are planning our lives together. Sometimes life is like that. Sometimes life sucks, something goes wrong, we get kicked while we're down, we get past it, just for someone to pull the fire alarm. Even on your happiest day. You evacuate. You go back, you take a deep breathe, and they pull it again. How do you handle it? How do you respond? That's just how life is going to be, there will be plenty of fires to put out.
