Once More into the Breach
Hey everyone! I’m sorry that I haven’t been updating the site much. The temp job I have has these crazy hours and when I am home, I’m either asleep, vegging out on couch or doing more vegging out. I’ve also been on a lot of job interviews, had some dissapointments. There was this one really great job that I wanted…never heard back. Its hard. It bruises the ego, its disappointing and it makes you feel like a failure. Doesn’t help that I have to get up every day and go a job where I’m treated basically like a drone and I have no freedom. When you have to raise your hand to go pee, you know you’ve got a bad job. When your mistakes are pointed out in front of everyone in a staff meeting, you know you’ve got a bad job. When you are written up for taking a day off, you know you’ve got a bad job. But it pays the bills and right now that is the most important thing.
Life goes on. We’re finally getting married. I’m so excited about that. It feels like we’ve been engaged forever, but its finally happening. We both agree that spending $10k on a few hours is absolutly ridiculous. That even spending $5k is ridiculous. We have a house and bills and lives and that money could go towards such better things…heck, I’d rather spend the money on the honeymoon! So, we’re just doing the courthouse thing. And then we’re going to have some photographs taken in front of some beautiful waterfalls. We’re still dressing up and everything. I think it’s going to be beautiful and meaningful. I’ll post tons of pics, trust me! I’ll be taking a bunch then we'[ll have the professional ones from the waterfall. We’re going to save up for a honeymoon to be taken later as we cannot afford one right now.
Everything with us is great. The pugs are great although they need their flea medicine and I haven’t been able to afford it being out of work and all. Terry got tenure at work (he’s a teacher) and thats a huge deal. I’m SO PROUD of him! He’s an amazing teacher and the school district is so lucky to have him. My mom is doing great, she is moving out here…hopefully coming soon. She has been procrasting! (It must be a genetic trait) because I have it in spades. My Dad is doing good, he just got back from a vacation to Maine.
And here are some random photos that I’ve taken over the past month or two. Enjoy!
Terry & I bowling:
Terry is VERY serious about winning. And he always wins.
Terry at 4H Camp canoeing. I have NO idea what that expression is on his face. This was either before or after he dropped my camera (which he borrowed) into the lake. YES, dear readers, he dropped my camera into the lake. Somehow it survived although the flash no longer works. I am trying to get a new camera out of the deal though. It is two years old and now the flash is broken.
Delicious hot wings I made using Alton Brown’s recipe.
The pugs begging to come back in. And I need to wash that window!
Me with my new haircolor. I like it but I think I’m going to dye it back brunette for the wedding. I want my traditional hair color for those pictures, you know?
Terry climbing a rock wall at 4H camp. I thought this was a really cool photo. Love the angle!
Everyone have a wonderful May and remember me on the 25th because it’s my BIRTHDAY! ;-)
