My friends Van and Betty got married this morning and very much to my surprise, nothing happened to keep me from going. Van called me last night to warn me that the ceremony would be conducted outside and he wanted to be sure that I'd be safe going. That's just the kind of guy he is. I layered on not one but two different sunscreens and wore a cardigan over my dress just to be sure that the least amount of skin was exposed to direct sunlight.

I did not burst into flames, nor was I rendered blind by exotic allergies. We met a really nice couple who had no idea of my history, so I felt like I was leading something of a double life. We decided that it would be better for me if we didn't go to the reception since there would be so many people and there was really no telling what I might be exposed to.

The ceremony was beautiful and I couldn't be happier for Van and Betty. So I suppose I can move a peg closer to normal. Chris and I are taking a mini trip tomorrow which should last a few days. I'm not going to say anymore about it since I'm reluctant to jinx myself yet again. We'll probably be without internet for the duration of the trip, so things will be quiet until May 1. I promise to write all about it when we get back.
