Over it.

I am so over working for SB. She doesn't do anything for herself. I am sick of being the bitch.

Over it.

I fucking need the money.

Life Sucks. Can't I just run away?

Goes back to daydreaming about the honeymoon....

Friday, June 19, 2009


Today is a day of a sad celebration. ClickHere to read all about it.

Wear your ruby, blue, and white today in little Nolan's honor.

In lighter news, the table cloths came in. The dryer isn't really broken. Timm fixed it. Thank goodness, that would have been dryer number two in 6 months. We are only 56ish days from the honeymoon. The lights for under the tables have been ordered but not recieved. Timm is helping his mother move to Oregon this weekend. She wants to be with her husband even if that means never seeing her family again. Ok so maybe I am being a little dramaqueen-esque but we will have to make all the effort to go see her. They have no money and will never travel to come see us. I don't want to use any of my vacation time to go to Oregon. Ugh.

And more sad news. My great grandmother's service is on Sunday night. We are going out on Jack O'Neill's boat - of O'Neill brand surfboards, surf clothes, and surfer shops, he is a friend of the family - to drop her ashes next to where my great grandfather was laid to rest. She was a beautiful woman.

Here she is front and center with me, my grandma, my cuz, and my grandma's sister at my cuz's bridal shower last Aug. She was 95 years old.

I had a litte, tiny meltdown yesterday at Timm. Ok maybe I am lying, maybe it was a huge meltdown. But well deserved in my opinion. He was nixing every idea I had to make our party cool. He said everything was too expensive. I swear this is his favorite phrase.

But in the end I am getting linens to the floor and lighted tables, that I am working on making them shine purple. I had to let go of my dream of square tables but the rounds we got are free and you can't beat free. I am also getting a photog, he might also be free but Timm was trying to say that we don't need one at all. I am also buying more wine and beer. He said that we will have enough....trust me we don't. We go through wine like nobody's business....last night, two bottles for three people and that was an "off" night.

I also had to give up on any dreams of serving little alcohol bottles as favors. But we are doing the tequila barrel. So not all is lost.

Overall very effective meltdown, although it pisses me off that I was using my words and he was ignoring them and I had to have a meltdown to explain to him that I am just trying to make this party awesome for his family....

Guest count is up to 25.

At Home Reception

I am so frustrated with the AHR. Timm throws down all of my ideas with the "we don't have the money excuse." I am over it, we are having this party for him and his family. He can plan it.

Oh Man.

So much has happened. It's all shitty.

Wish I was here.
I am going for a run.

Running Outside

Last week when I ran outside with Timm and Charley we ran a 12 min mile. I was horrified. I usually run a 10 min mile on the treadmill.

Tonight I ran with Charley outside and we did a 10.30 mile average. So I feel better about that. I think I might sign up for some 5Ks before the honeymoon. Just to keep to motivation coming.

But for tonight, go me! 3 miles completed. Charley even tuckered out at the end. She wanted to walk the rest of the way home from the bridge. I wasn't having it.
Just because there hasn't been a picture in a while....my adorable pup.


I just bought three pregnancy books.

What to Expect When You're Expecting.
The Expectant Father
Belly Laughs

And I already have Your Pregnancy Week by Week. I am up to week 13.

I am obsessed. I have an insane yearning to learn all I can about pregnancy and labor. Once I am pregnant I will worry about how you actually breastfeed and care for a child. I will read the What to Expect in the First Year Book.

oh my goodness. It is disturbing.

Also in my amazon.com order I purchased the Zak Brown Band CD and the arm band for my iPod when I run. So it wasn't all baby/pregnancy related.

I will just keep telling myself that.


We changed our plans again. Just the hotel this time.

We are staying at Hotel del Rio on Ambergris Caye. Can't Wait. 67 days.

67 days until 8 days of beach, sun, sand, and drinks.

So excited.

My friend from high school is pregnant and due in August. She's having a boy. I went to buy her a gift off her registry tonight after work and I was looking around at all the baby stuff. Totally. Overwhelmed. Insanity! There was like 10 aisles of baby stuff not to mention all the clothes and other large items that were available...carseats, jumpers, vibrating chairs, etc and not included in the aisles. I had her registry in front of me, guiding me in the right direction, down to the aisle. I was still overwhelmed.

I have some serious research to do. I better stop obsessing about labor for now and worry about all the other little shit that comes sooner than the delivery. OMG.

I feel so lazy when I work in the office. I sit on my ass the whole time I am there. I must run today but you see I ran so hard yesterday. I am trying to talk Timm into doing a nice a slow half hour run with me.

He went outside to tighten the E-Brake. Ummm, I have been asking him to that for how long and he decides to do it now? Oh wow. I guess I figured out how to get him to do stuff that he keeps putting off.


EDIT: We took a family run tonight. I sucked. I think I will run outside on my "off" days. I get a better run when I run on the treadmill and I KNOW Timm does too. Poor Timm had to run at my pace which was A LOT slower than he runs. But we ran hard yesterday so it was nice to have an light run today.

Why is it so hard to run outside? I can run a 10 minute mile on the treadmill and we ran a 12 minute mile outside. Weird.

I should be running but I don't want to. Instead I sit here and blog.

I will just go put my running clothes on. Maybe that's the motivation I need.

EDIT! OK I ran. And I got a new mile record. Go me. Then I did week 2, day 2 of the hundred pushup challenge and week 1, day 2 of the 200 situp challenge.
