Wedded Bliss

Well, the wedding is done and over with and we are now 2 months into being happily wed... Not to say it hasn't been a big adjustment for both of us... Toby just got an official 40 hour position, which means I get to stop working for our benefits and focus on school full time while working somewhere part time. I'd like to work for a school district or a private school somewhere close to home. Maybe I'll apply at Grace and Karen's old school, it's right up the street. Toby and I are going out to celebrate his promotion tonight before the first meeting of our new bible study. We have plans to attend another study as well on building a healthy marriage. I think it will be really good for us.

Change of plans

I'm on my own now with the wedding plans... I got into it with Toby's mom for the last time... I think I just need to finish this on my own, or hire a professional to do this for me. I need to find a florist because Erin's gal flaked out. We took engagment pics the other day... I can't wait to see how they came out!

Getting closer...

So I got the invites, and now Erin's working on addressing them... we're going to go get my veil tomorrow... I'm pretty sure I know which one I want... I hope it will get here in time... I'm suck a slacker... I wanted to clean the house before Karen got home, but it didn't happen and it's still a mess... All I need now is to book the florist (Erin has one for me) and my hair stylist... should be easy... I'm tired... I go to bed now...

So today I met with a friend of mine who has agreed to help me coordinate my wedding... I feel much better now that I don't have 6 million calls to make... She's got my ideas and is going to help me execute them into reality :). SO much weight off my shoulders... Now I'm off to register at Macy's... Lord be with me!

Planning sucks...

This is supposed to be the best part, right? Planning, picking, and choosing just the right stuff for the big day... Why am I back to felling blah about it??? I need someone to help me coordinate all this, because I am in way over my head... I just want to play WoW on my day off... not spend the day looking for fabric... blah...

The job is good... But I am tired... No time for Wedding plans... No time for WoW... No time for anything... And the diet is defenitly not happening right now... I need it to happen... Bad...

So I just joined Sparkpeople.com. It's like Weight Watchers without the points, but it's free and it's all online... I like it a lot... I even found a group that plays WoW :)

I didn't go to bed before 3am (it was more like 4:30am) and I didn't get up before noon (try 2) :( but I'm going to keep trying. I start work on Monday so I need to get my sleep in this weekend. I feel really sick right now... Migraine and I think a touch of food poisioning (note to self: never eat the leftovers that were not put in the fridge for hours)... Blah... Trying not to throw up here...

I think it's okay to skip the gym today if I'm feeling barfy... I'm going to play Wow :)

A new take...

I have been feeling down in the dumps for a while now... Not really sure how married life in Sacramento would treat me... But as of late I have come to the conclusion that I should take life as it comes and be happy in the little moments it brings me...

  • My fiance is amazing!
  • I got a new job!
  • I have my dress... It is beautiful - and it fits! In fact, it's just a bit big ::smiles::
  • We ordered Toby's ring tonight... It's nice to give him some of the attention for a change...
  • I have been going to the gym for two days in a row now... let's keep 'em coming!
  • I think I am finally allowing myself to heal from the big bad uglies that brought me to Sacto in the first place (Thanks Deanna)
  • Did I mention I got a new job??? This means a new car!!! :D

I am also working on a few key things that I could use some support on...
  • Working out for at least 30 mins a day and eating better...
  • Not biting my nails! (I think I'm going to have to post pics to make me stop ::cringe::)
  • Restarting our pre-marriage meetings with pastor Jim...
  • Cleaning up my messy apartment before I start work on Monday (anyone feel like keeping me company - really, that's all it takes!)
  • Going to bed before 3 am and getting up before 12pm... Shoot I guess I better get going on that...
