Not Engaged Yet




  • @loves2shop4shoes - TAHITI!?!?! You're going to love it! When are  you going? Where are you staying? That's where we went for our HM and we loved it so much!
    We're going to Tahiti from Oct. 16-26.  We're visiting Bora Bora, Moorea, Rangiroa, Huahine, and Tetiaroa.  We're going to stay at the St. Regis Bora Bora, the Hilton Moorea, The Brando, the Royal Huahine, and the Kia Ora.

    We're super excited!

    @loves2shop4shoes - What happened with the job situation?  I'm sorry it is frustrating the two of you.  Hugs.
    Basically, they made DH a verbal offer two weeks ago, which was about 10k less than he currently makes.  And he was way.

    So they made some excuse about not realizing what he actually makes and blah blah.  They told him they'd amend the salary (to who knows what) and send him the offer in writing.  That was two weeks ago, and the only peep he's heard out of them since has been later on the same day when they emailed him asking him to do a project for them...which he refuses to do until he's on the payroll.

    DH is really pissed about the entire situation, and says he doesn't think he wants to work for people like that regardless of the figure they came back with.  Other days he sees it as a good opportunity to move.  So we go back and forth and in the meantime, we've heard NOTHING from them.  It's infuriating.
  • @loves2shop4shoes - I wouldn't want to work for people that disorganized either.  It would be (and is, I'm sure) very frustrating.  Also, heck no to a verbal offer unless you really, really trust them (which it sounds like you don't).  You could always use your vacation as an excuse to prod them.  You don't have to tell them it is a vacation, just that you will not be reachable for two weeks...not the best solution I know but better than you guys being in limbo-land until they decided to get their heads out of their butts.  Hugs to both of you. 
  • dear lunch,

    why do you not make me feel full??

    hungry and Snickers looks good,
  • @loves2shop4shoes - We also stayed at the Hilton Moorea and loved it! There's a great bar with a nice deck that has a great view of the sunsets in the evenings. You should also try to eat at Rudy's. It's a great restaurant in town (you can make a reservation with the concierge) and they have wonderful steaks! One of the best meals we had the whole time. Can't wait to hear all about it and see pics when you get back!!!

    The bar I mentioned is the deck all the way to the left in this photo:

    Dear Work,
    Seriously, slow your roll. I need an IV full of wine ASAP. When the CRM comes up, I'm going to lose my mind.

    Dear work,

    You suck monkey balls. Please go away and leave me be. Quit pulling me into discussions about robes and numbers of students. You clearly don't understand what will happen to the church in the next 5 years and I will gladly say you didn't listen to me. 

    Get a grip,


    Dear H,

    Please take off your grumpy pants. You have a new job that you love and your paycheck will come in soon enough and all will be well. So stop jumping down my throat every other day. I'm over it. 

    Your always patient wife who wants to thump you


    Dear @swazzle and everyone else, 


    I cannot deal.

    I'm sorry about all the shots and shit, but hey, you'll thank me when you don't get the plague.

    Dear Creepy McCreepster customer,
    No. Never. Stop it. No really, we never went out on a date. Yes, I'm 100% positive. And no, D and I have not been saying that we're getting married for 10 years. Yes, I'm sure. No, you can't take his place. Yes, you can leave now.

    Dear FI,
    LOL thanks for helping me figure out a way to have both a glass of wine and a roll with dinner tonight without breaking my diet. We somehow managed to figure out how I can have dinner with roll, wine, and my Skinny Cow dessert and be right on target with calorie intake without me having to go to the gym (and also be under in carbs and fat!). Yeah teamwork!

    Dear sinuses,

    You are the devil. I hate you so much right now, please clear yourselves out immediately.

    No love, tired of being home sick

    Dear couch,

    Wow, you are really not as comfortable as you used to be. And you're too short to stretch out and sleep on. 

    No love, cranky pants who will throw you out as soon as FI and I get a house.

    Dear work,

    I know you're going to be crazy tomorrow, what with missing 2 days because of sickness. Please have mercy on me.

    Anxious, lmc

    Dear FI,

    Thank you for being sweet and trying to cheer me up, even though you won't come over because I'm sick. I know, I know, your immune system is really sucky because of your meds…but I want snuggles :(

    Miss your face, your FI

    Dear Mr. Historian,

    I love you so, so, so much, and I'm praying for you constantly as you get ready to deploy.  We'll make it through this one the same way we made it through the last one: lots of care packages and emails.  And, I promise, I'll start picking up the phone to unknown numbers again.

    Your Future Mrs.
