    This Etsy vendor is grinding my gears this week. I wish I would have ordered with another vendor. She's taking forever to get my order together and even respond to my emails...not to mention that she completely ignores some of my questions.

    I just cant' wait to get my final product.

    Also, I'm kind of freaking out that our wedding is less than 6 months away! I keep thinking that I have time but I really don't. I need to get my stuff together and start doing!

    Why when people I work with write an email, do they sound like they never passed the 3rd grade? I mean, seriously. There their, our are, your you're. Capitalize the letter I. It would be great if people acted like they cared about their work. It just makes them look so ignorant in my opinion. Don't write an email that is 500 words long with no punctuation! Argh! It is embarrassing when they sent them to clients.

    I went to bed with my phone fully charged. The battery randomly died in the night (iphone), so none of my alarms went off and I overslept an hour and a half...

    Work! I wish I could take the next 2 months off to just focus on the wedding and not deal with any work related drama/stress!!!

    And not having enough time to do anything! I've been working out for 2 hours every day because my first dress fitting is tonight - which means I have no time to work on any DIY projects! Luckily FI loves to cook, otherwise I wouldn't be eating this week :)

    This is exactly what is grinding my gears today! The whole your, you're, too, to thing is the WORST! We have a guy on our help desk who believes it's proper to type out "citrixs", "message boxs"...ugh...there's no "s" after the letter X.

    I'm also stressing that the weding is closing in on FOUR months and I'm really hoping that I'm not missing something really BIG.

    FI still needs to ask two more GM; we have to go for tuxes...

    I'm at the end of my first week of P90x so I'm sore, tired and missing drinking something other than water, skim milk and peppermint tea. The end result will be great, but I just wish I could pig out his weekend for the super bowl. No. Can. Do.

    You could be right; but I expect better from the IT folks here; the customer's (attorneys) get emailed the details of their "trouble tickets" and when they see these sort of typos I know it must irk their nerve.

    Speaking of ignorant work folks, I have a coworker neighbor that refuses to take her phone off speaker when she's on conference calls. OUR walls are super thin, like paper, so it sounds like I have 50 million people all talking about something that's of no concern to me...not to mention they all just really like the sound of THEIR own voice.

    I really hate it when work people get too big for THEIR britches too. I'm sorry but YOU'RE not any more important than I am, sorry to burst YOUR bubble.  Egos!

    I did good with the grammar. See, I ain't ignant =)

    I'm just starting the planning process so maybe most of you are past this but I'm SOO fed up with how expensive everything is!  With my fiance and I graduating college in May, paying for everything, trying to find jobs/get into grad school and financing too, I wish pepole would realize we don't have $10,000 to spend on the reception alone.  We are hoping we'll have $10,000 for the whole wedding!  Ugh, stressing over trying to find a place to get married and have the reception at a price we can think to afford (at or under $5000 for 75-100 people on a Monday in January) is grinding my gears because it shouldn't be this difficult!

    lhagner, the sticker shock never goes away. Luckily most of the more expensive things get booked first so it kind of gets better. I'm working on invitations, centerpieces and flowers now, so even though each item isn't so expensive it adds up really fast with 4 bridesmaids, 100 guests, and 10 tables. So glad we decided to have a small-ish wedding!

    I've been stressing over how to afford everything when future husband was pushed back down to part-time hours, we have already blown the wedding budget (thanks to having to find a new place after the first place went bankrupt and hasn't refunded our deposit!), and we're trying to look for a bigger apartment to move into in May!

    Anyone know any good full-time mechanic or other general labor jobs that are hiring right now on the north side of Chicago or the northern suburbs??

    Is it Friday yet??? :)

    The post office. I'm developing anger management problems because of it. Just moved in with FI in December and first, they lost my change of address form (which I didn't realize for awhile, and then all of my bills were overdue by the time that got sorted out). Then they failed to leave two package slips in my box and somehow an important letter was never delivered and sent back (delaying the processing of my license, which I'm waiting on to come through so I can start working). Then, they finally leave a package slip so today I got to the post office, get to the front of the line, and wait for 30 MINUTES while this lady disappears into the back. There are 10, very angry people in line behind me and then she comes out and tells me she CAN'T FIND MY PACKAGE and that I have to call in tomorrow morning. I really wanted to strangle her, but there were too many witnesses.

    Yeah, those were my thoughts as well.  Well, my first thought was "it must be the weekend!".  Discovering that it wasn't was probably the worst part!

    I'm 93 days out today and still have not received my invites! We did send out save the dates, so people know, I figure if I get with at least 10 weeks to go, I'm good.

    I don't know that "vent" is quite the right word, but my fiance (FI? I'm new...) and I decided this week to postpone our wedding due to a medical condition.  As you might imagine, we're less than thrilled...but it seems like the right thing to do.  The hard part is that now we are back to having no date (also had a bit of a fiasco a few weeks ago with the church, but that got resolved).  I guess you could say that what's "grinding my gears" is really my inability to NOT stress so much and just take things as they come!  I really, truly, honestly want to be able to relax...but I just can't seem to do it since the theme of our wedding seems to be "If It Can Go Wrong, It Will!"  :(
