outcome of the wedding week (or: how much family craziness you can squeeze into one week)

Here an overview over the major highlights of the wedding week (some of them not directly related to the wedding yet with somehow influential character regarding the general perception):

– one happily married couple

– one not really enthusiastically baptised but still happy toddler

-a lot of happy guests (at least that’s what we heard)

– one flight booked to the wrong part of Germany (you’d be surprised how much difference a single letter can make…)

– more than 1/3 guests with stomach flu (almost none of them on the wedding day itself!)

– ca 20 kilo less, split on several persons, due to stress and the previous point

– 1 busted car (total write-off) and a shaken mother

– one flooded basement

– more than 80 liters of sparkling water drank during two days

– 15 self-made cakes

– one new second cousin born during the service (but 600 km away)

– about 4000 pictures taken

– one emergency call in order to save two calves

– daily visits of the local open air bath

– one destroyed tie

– consumption record of the wedding evening: 17 glasses of coke (by my 15-year-old cousin who consequently rocked the dance floor until 1:30am)

– one wallet left behind

– a reservation in the hotel on our name for our silver wedding anniversary (don’t even ask…)

– many, many happy memories

Family (sigh…). The beauty about this list: the points are almost equally distributed between Karsten’s and my family. If that’s not a good match….

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.

  1. Reading this overview one might laugh though some of these events are not really funny:-). But the most important thing is, everybody is still alive and it was a fantastique wedding!!! This is what will be kept in mind!!

      “Everybody is still alive” is indeed a desirable outcome for a wedding. However, I really like the one about the two saved calves… and I’m missing the statistics about how many grown-ups tried the horse ride intended to be for kids only 😀
