Besides my day job at Sam's Club, I do wedding floral design and coordinating work. I had a wedding yesterday.
I was finishing up the final touches and getting ready to go and dh was loading the car for me. It was very cold and the car was pulled up near the back door. Murray was dashing in and out, chasing cats and trying to 'help' dh.
Everything was loaded and I was putting on my lipstick when I heard dh repeatedly calling for Murray. I went and asked what was going on and he said he couldn't find him anywhere and hadn't seen him for at least 5 minutes, maybe longer.
I freaked because I was already pushing it time wise. I went through the house looking and then around the fence line of our 1 acre lot, calling him and shaking the treat jar.
DH went and opened up all the car doors and didn't see him. I was nearly in tears and knew I had to leave, but couldn't imagine not knowing where my baby was.
DH said let me check one more thing and went and hit the button for the trunk lid on my car. Murray came flying out like an exploding ball of white hair and went flying to the back door!
I was so happy and was kissing on him and scolding him for scaring me so badly.
When I told the groom my story of why I was nearly late for the photo shoot before the wedding he laughed and told me I should have brought him, he could of stood up with him since the bride had 2 jr bridesmaids, but he didn't have any jr groomsmen.
