Brain Dump

I had the laziest weekend ever. I cannot remember the last time Ryan and I just...hung out, with nothing else to do. It felt, wrong, almost, or foreign. But it was really nice. We didn't even do any wedding stuff. Glorious.

Our ceremony is clocking in at 15 minutes. I'm going to have our officiant lengthen his homily a bit, and I'm looking to add a reading. I'm also thinking about adding in a piece about why we're getting married in a Unitarian Universalist church, since we aren't doing programs (they seem to be tossed quite frequently...and I'm just lazy) I think it'd be nice to fill people in a bit.

Big job things are happening. Huge ones. Job things that could be just the break that Ryan (and indirectly, me ) needs. So if you would, pray, or send happy thoughts or good karma our way. And now I'm having a crash course in how not-to-freak-out-and-lose-my-sh*t. So far so good, I just try not to think about it. Because when I do my heart gets all fluttery and I get light headed.

I successfully finished a major sewing project on Friday, but I can't tell you about it because a certain someone reads this blog regularly. I am obnoxiously proud of myself, and I have my sights set on a quilt, next. I'd like to buy the fabric for it on our honeymoon, and then it could be a honeymoon quilt! I know, it's silly, I've got the idea in my head and I can't get it out.

I have my first physical in years today, and Wednesday I'm getting my teeth cleaned. I'm trying to get all of this in before I get booted off my parents insurance. The nurse practitioner I'm seeing today is such a bad*ss. She completed P90x and it wasn't hard enough, so now she's into this workout called Insanity. I know, right! Appropriate naming there.

We're still waiting on RSVPs. Lots of them. The deadline was Thursday. Luckily, we have willing family members to make phone calls. What's so hard about dropping a postcard in the mail?

What's going through your head today?


  1. Oh, lucky girl that you have family to help call for wayward RSVP's. Thankfully I didn't have a horrible amount of them outstanding and so I was able to e-mail/call a few people and my guy called some of his friends. Guys are always lazy about that stuff.

    Glad you're taking care of yourself physically and it's good to have a lazy day and do nothing. I try to fit those in often :)

    I think it's a great idea to fill in some info on the ceremony as part of your message if you are not doing programs. Programs are hit and miss and not necessary but kind of nice to explain things. So if you can include it as part of the ceremony...that'll be a good way to lengthen it.

  2. Well, since you asked . . . ;)

    We had a fantastic weekend away (no talk about the wedding for us either for two whole days!), although it was a weird kind of slam back to reality today. Nothing bad happened, per se, but himself got into a tizzy with work and some other minor frustrations and if I was to say there was a hole in our wall, I might or might not be lying. Don't worry; all has returned to "normal."

    Also, planning the bachelorette/shower weekend is officially underway, which actually seems like a lot of fun. I'm hoping I can stop worrying about whether or not everyone is having a good time and just relax and enjoy myself.

    Right now though? Two men are going to the store and grilling me dinner. I am very, VERY happy with tonight.

  3. We had the same kind of weekend :)

    Dentists terrify me. Seriously.

  4. Fingers crossed for the job!

    I think a honeymoon quilt sounds really sweet.

    And I'm with Miss C on the scary dentist thing - good luck!


Hearing from you all makes my day!
