    RANT: We have racoons! They're cute and fuzzy on the TV, or in someone else's yard, but in our yard ... uhh, pass?

    RAVE: Summer weather is finally here (even if not today)

    RANT the second: I miss FI. Stupid bar exam!

    RAVE the second: GTG! whee!

    rant: some people have poor planning/budgeting skills and i'm going to an ill thought out b-party tonight. $15 has become enough of a problem that 3 people dropped out of the entire party because they can't afford it....really??! come on. my H is going to the male counterpart of this party and it's just as bad, with poorer planning skills, and poorer budgeters.. quite disappointing, really.

    rave: nothing, other than life is good and that i love it!

    RANT: I hate having a cast on, it really puts a damper on life, especially since I hate asking for help.

    RAVE: We are getting RSVPs in the mail! A third of our guests have replied so far.

    Rant: Totally broke and don't know where all the money is going!  It's definitely been hard with saving for our wedding and celebrating all our friends weddings/babies, etc.  I really want to go the Bite this weekend but that's definitely not diet friendly - boo.

    Rave: Things are coming together finally....ordered my dress, booked the officiant, booked the honeymoon, finally got a response from a florist.  Things are looking up!  and TGIF.

    Rant:  I am also SUPER broke.  It freaks me out.  We borrowed some money from FI's brother to make it through till after the wedding, since I am now unemployed for the rest of the summer.  Jennuinne, FI also needs new brakes & we are crossing all crossables that we can hold out till the wedding is over.
    Also, I have a lot of little wedding projects to finish up, but I've hit a wall & am totally not in wedding mood right now.

    Rave:  I don't have to work anymore until the end of August!!!  Which is good, because mentally, I was super checked out.
    Also, only 2 weeks until I am married!  People keep telling me that I seem super calm, which is nice, because a lot of the time I don't feel that way, but at least I am not a bridezilla.

    Rant - I'm super stressed due to a few things NWR and honey and his ex made alternate custody plans for the weekend w/o him mentioning it to me.

    That's it for me.  I'm busy stewing on it.  I've had a hard week!

Exciting! And some one may or may not have purchased the present that I've been MOST excited about from our registery.. but I wouldn't know for sure because I don't look at my registry.. except to update. :)

    Yea, me too.  I need to pick up beauty products - scrubs and lotions and some makeup and stuff, but I don't really have the money for fall clothes like I usually pick up at the anniversary sale.  Boo.<div>
    </div><div>Rave:  FI is getting on board, and taking care of WR stuff.  It's a huge relief to have him take things on and I'm not feeling all alone in getting key things done.</div>

    RAVE RAVE RAVE: I finished my hellish Geometry class today. Five full days of stuff I don't remember from 15 years ago. Took the exam... I know I did better than the Pre-test, but I'm not quite sure if I did well enough to pass (80%) so...

    RANT: I'll probably have to retake the test.

    DOUBLE RANT: I threw my back out and it hurts to sit. So I spent the majority of my time standing in class today. I'm currently lying down :o)

    OH! DOUBLE RAVE: FI and I booked our Photographer! Also, we gave our pictures to my friend who is make our STDs. Yeah!

    Anniversary
