Friday Rant&Rave (Am I really the first knottie posting this morning?)

Rant: Chickens*** Democrats sitting on their collective duff on health care because of one stinkin' election loss where the election had basically nothing to do with health care. Seriously, if you have 250 seats in the House and 60 (or) 59 in the Senate and you can't get it done, what's the point?

Rave: FIe has a friend who's going to give her a discount on making the dress! Yay for saving money!

    Rant: My PMS-related night sweats have extended themselves this month. So I wake up exhausted and dehydrated. I am sooooo fuuuckin tired this morning! FI and I are a still househunting. We went and saw one last night that I like quite a bit. It has a few detractions (slightly odd kitchen layout, dislike locale of w/d, 2 smaller bedrooms but at least master is decent) AND has stupid homeowners dues. However, I think FI still likes this new construction we saw that I just don't like very much. I don't think we're EVER going to find a house we can afford that we BOTH like.

    Rave: GTG tomorrow!!! I'll be exhausted as I have 3:30 am shift again, but I like y'all and you don't seem to mind if I'm weird. :)  My brother is coming up to visit my Dad for the first time in 3 years this weekend, yay! That will really help perk my dad up.

    Well she had it picked out ... but it's satin and the dressmaker points out that it doesn't behave well w/ flash photography. They're meeting on sunday to figure out that part.

    Excited to get in on this -

    Rant:  Huge presentation for my Masters tomorrow morning.  I still have to finish the slides and prep (not going to be doing much real work at work today - just school work).  Feeling pretty nervous about that.  Also, FI's parents are staying with us tomorrow night...cause I needed the added stress of cleaning the whole house while finishing my presentation.

    Rave: Presentation will be done tomorrow and while you're all GTGing I'll be having a fab get the families together/engagement dinner!  MMM yummy celebration and I get to wear a cute new dress.

    Cheers!

    Rant - the guest list situation is scaring me.  It's basically in my mom's culture to invite anyone that she's ever spoken to, even if only for a second, to my wedding. Plus, my mother can't seem to get addresses correct.....she'll write something like    4422    22    50    432nd avenue SW.  I don't think she understands the concept of addresses.

    Rave - It looks like I'll be going to Hawaii twice this year.....thanks to some good luck and Gilda's Club!

    Rant: I can't seem to get motivated enough to get anything WR done. I'm at a loss. I know I need to get stuff done but for some reason because FI doesn't have all of his addresses still, I feel like I don't know what to plan because our guestlist isn't set in stone... ah. And, I'm just scared to plan anything, get excited about an idea and then... you guys know.. 

    Rave: Excited about the GTG tomorrow! And to get some discounts from KST. Hopefully I can find what I need at one of the places and get our rentals going. Also, Its my Saturday and it felt SOOO good to sleep in until almost 10 on and off. :)

    It's a double rant and rave day for me!!

    Rant - My birthday is tomorrow and it's being totally overshadowed by the future I-Ls being in town AND I can't go to the GTG.  Also - I did an invitation mock-up last night and HATED how it looked... back to the drawing board!

    Rave - I signed up with a personal trainer.  Did a short 15 minutes intro session and am still sore two days later - they're totally going to kick my rear end back into shape!!  Also - FI and I are moving into our first apt this weekend!!

    Rant 1: work has been totally flipped upside down as our owners fired our managment company and fired our GM.  We don't really know whats going to happen next....

    Rant 2: my personal computer had a horrible virus on it and I couldn't get rid of it - I thought I was pretty computer savvy.  So, instead of lossing everything and spending $$$ on a new pc, took it into the geek squad who now will have it for a WEEK because they are so backed up due to holidays!!

    Rave 1: heading to happy hour in a few mintues...definately need a drink.

    Rave 2: going to a bonfire tonight with old friends...it will be good to catch up with everyone.

    Rant:  I hate progress reports!!!!!!!!!
    But the real rant is, I have had wedding nightmares all week.  I know that this is because I have been a major procrastinator.  I've been engaged I think 9.5 months?  And all I have is a venue, photographer, dress, and DOC.  Going to the wedding show last weekend, at first really motivated me.  But then I realized how freaked out I am.  Not only do I still need a caterer, DJ, officiant, and MUA, but everything is SO EXPENSIVE.  I feel like if I hadn't waited so long, I would have a choice of better, cheaper, vendors.  It's exacerbated by the fact that my venue is so far away, I have to pay people extra!  I don't know what to do, I'm freaking out.
    Oh, I have another one.  FI is going to Moses Lake for the weekend.  =(  And he's taking my old-lady car!Surprised

    Rave:  GTG tomorrow!  I'm really excited.  Seeing Jenn at the wedding show was like a preview, so now I can't wait!  Also, because my boss got selected for a jury, progress report deadline got extended by almost a week.  Phew!  And finally, I was able to schedule a tasting with a caterer I met last summer (!) at a wedding show thing in Snohomish.  They have our date available & I really liked them.  And I think they average $17pp, which is reasonable.

    Sorry.  That was a really long R&R.  I'm stressed.Frown

    Rant: Communting 3 hours a day sucks. And my new job is super boring. And I have to pack and move, and I'm wanting to get all the moving done before DH gets home.

    Rave: DH will be home in 10 days, so I might be MIA.

    Rant: I have to work tomorrow... hate working on the weekend! It's tough when FI has a M-F 9-5 job and my shifts are less predictable. Sometimes we don't get to see each other nearly as much as we'd like.

    Rave: FI took a personal day off work today to help me with wedding planning. We actually accomplished some things, and more importantly he totally put a lot of my anxieties at ease! Completely caught me by surprise and made my day. :)
