I know, I know...I'm not around nearly enough anymore. I miss you...but I have exciting news!!
I've finally been offered a full-time job at the University I have been temping at since this summer. I'll be doing the exact same job, but making 60% more. Woot woot! AND have benefits...I can finally get PT for my knee!! Benefits are priceless...seriously.
I know I have mentioned here and there, but Andrew and I have officially changed our venue and put down a deposit.
We will be having our wedding in Saratoga- the same city that Andrew started his wine career in. We'll be partying at the Saratoga Foothill Club on October 13th, 2012:
The package comes with catering, a cake, all linens and a DJ. Oh- AND NO CORKAGE FEES. We can bring in as much wine and beer as we want! We are SOOO excited to come up with a wine list that is meaningful to our relationship and freaking delicious!
We wont have any tables in the center of the room so that people can party and dance. Isn't that round window amazing? I also like this purple, but with the wooden chairs from above, not the covers and sashes.
My dad is having his colon removed on February 8th. Looking at my work schedule and my parent's opinions- it has been decided that I will stay here in Colorado and fly back if needed.
My dad has a history of blood clots in his lungs- so next week they will be installing some filters into his main arteries (this scared me A LOT until Liv told me she had the same procedure done before her surgeries.). I'm still nervous about the clots though...He told me a couple weekends, "I was lucky once- I won't be lucky again." One pulmonary embolism and he could be gone...gone before I could say goodbye. Gawd...I hate thinking about it.
We are having a Career Fair on campus that day...which I suppose is good and bad. Good that it keeps my mind off it...Bad that I'll probably be functioning at 50% capacity at best.
A couple weekends ago I totally lost it...I don't think I have ever cried so hard in my life- and my mom has even had the exact same surgery, but she doesn't have to worry about pulmonary embolisms...
When I think about it...it makes me feel like the breath is being sucked out of me.
But here is the silver lining...BOTH Andrew and Liv offered to fly me out to see me dad for the surgery, because I couldn't afford it. I'm SO lucky to have so many people in my life that love me.
- I want my wedding dress to come in, darnnit!
- I'm going to have Chipotle for lunch
Anyone else have any updates that they have been holding onto for awhile?
