I know I’ve been MIA.
I’ve been popping in here and there. My mom had surgery on Friday which I was totally mad at her for (breast implants). Yea, she got divorced and lost her mind but whatever. So, I’ve been helping her with that not showing my complete disgust with the idea and just being supportive.
We got approved for a loan for a house yesterday but we’re not sure if we’re gonna get one this year or the next since loans are good for up to a year. My mom says shes will pay all our closing costs and down payment and stuff as a wedding present. We will see. She sometimes comes thru and other times doesn’t so I’m not getting my hopes up to high but I’m still excited.
I applied to be a bee and got rejected a month or two back and now rejected to be a hostess so apparently they don’t like me for one reason or another. So I think I may be done applying to be anything on the bee and just remain a poster up until my wedding.
We’re finally going to do our passport apps today. Thank God.
We now have only a little over 3 months left til our wedding!! I’m super excited about that!!!
I started my centerpieces and should have a mock up of that soon.
I’m gearing up to finish putting together my invites and get them in the mail at the beginning of April.
But for right now…I’m just sitting at my desk looking at the bee. I haven’t really commented on anything. Idk…I’m just not in the mood.

I’m at work (branch library). Was supposed to have a class come in from 10:30-11:30 but they were no shows so I helped set up, check in book drop, etc. I came up here to the children’s room at 11:30 to get work done before we open at 12 but that didn’t happen. SO tired…just want to snooze…
FH left this morning, he is spending a long weekend in Phoenix with his dad. They are both biiiig Cubs fans and will be attending a bunch of spring training games. His dad is getting older and probably only has a few years of serious autonomy left, as his eyes fail. I was supposed to have a girls’ weekend away but that fell through, so I’m just hanging here. I’m not having a total pity party, I have plenty planned to do, but it sucks that he is gone 4 nights/5 days.
In better news, we are headed to Panama over the last weekend of March – blue skies and 90 degree heat here I come!!!!

I’m about to throw my votive holders in hot water to get all the wax out and get them ready for their DIY project with my sister on Friday. I need to eat, I’m hungry. Also have to take photos of the banner I made for a friend’s soon to come baby to get ready to post on Etsy… Work on cupcake wrappers… Hit Fabricland… My to do lists seem too long these days. Oh and call a potential DJ. Sigh. I think I’ll start with lunch.

@msmonicka: I’m sorry you’re mad at your mom about her surgery, but I totally know how you feel! I felt the same way when my best friend did the same thing–she’s in mondo-debt because of law school, and I was like…REALLY?! This is what you want to spend your non-existent money on?? Oh well… 😉 But it sounds like stuff with the house loan and wedding stuff is going well! YAY!
I’m sitting at work trying to convince myself that I’m not getting sick. And browsing the bee. And avoiding any actual work because I’ve already informed them that I’m quitting, so I really really don’t care anymore. I’m just ready to get out of here and start my PhD already!

I’m at work doing homework and posting on the Bee! Gotta love getting paid to do things that have NOTHING to do with your job.
msmonica–seems like you’ve had a stressful time lately, I hope that house hunting goes the way you want it to though! Just a little advice, we rushed into buying our house two years ago. Don’t get me wrong, I *LOVE* our house, but 6 months later a house on the cul-de-sac over went up for sale for $5k less and has MORE ammeneties than the one we got. Granted this could ALWAYS happen, I could find houses today and think “Oh shoot…look at that deal!” but just give it time. Go into the house with a realistic perspective, we had our preverbial rose-colored-glasses on and didn’t see the things we would have otherwise. Maybe even take another person who you know will be completely honest with you about possible flaws in layout or design. Just a thought! 🙂 Happy hunting!

I’m sorry things have been super stressful for you recently… I’ve been much the same. Very melancholy.
