I’m an idiot

Okay, so you know how I wrote in my last blog about my busy two weeks coming up? My nephew’s wedding in Des Moines scrunched between two major ministry trips.

But then my wife got the wedding invitation yesterday and read it. And re-read it. Then she re-re read it one last time.

I was on the way to the mall, getting some last minute items for the triple trips in the next two weeks. The conversation went something like this:

“Did you talk to your brother about coming to Des Moines this week?”

“Um, well, I talked to him about coming to Des Moines. I’m assuming he knows we are talking about this week.”

She pauses, “Well, you are not going to like this. But I just read the invitation and it says the wedding is on July 26th, not June 28th.”


“Call your brother.”

I did and he confirmed that I am an idiot.

This is the worst scheduling mistake I have ever made. I knew that I would be flying in from Creationfest to attend my nephews wedding. But there are two Creationfests (east and west) and I’m speaking at both. I got my festivals mixed up and put my nephew Tommy’s wedding date down on the Creation East week instead of the Creation West week.

I guess, at the very least, it’s good that I didn’t find out once we landed in Des Moines. All dressed up and no place to go…and in Iowa of all places.

Did I mention that I’m an idiot?
