Wedding-Planning Distractions

Right now I could go on and on about how ridiculous planning  a wedding can get.  I'm sure there will be a time and place for that post but it's certainly not today. I will be ready to write all about the planning process once I can look back and laugh at it. This may be after the birth of my first child though so don't hold your breath for it.

ANYWAY.

I realized that it has been far too long since I've put up any photos - especially ridiculous dog photos which I know are everyone's favorite!

For those who are curious - I did not have to hop a spaceship to Endor in order to snap photos of this creature. Though it strongly resembles an Ewok I assure you it is a dog that goes by the name of Daisy and belongs to my lovely sister.

And that so silly-looking it's cute under bite? You're welcome.

And You Thought I Hated Math.

It has been a long time since I've written anything. On this blog.  I realize this. It saddens me and I fully plan to unsuccessfully attempt to make up for it with a really cheesy piece that I have so eloquently titled "Rachel's Fall - By the Numbers." Also known as an abbreviated version of the last month and a half.

I ordered 100 save the dates today.

The last time I posted was 46 days ago.

My save the dates will go out at least 23 days later than I had scheduled them. Letting go of the OCD in 3...2...

Eddie can now chase his tail up to 20 consecutive rotations and still walk a straight line immediately following.

I sent approximately 15 emails about the YWCA's Santa Store at work this week *HINT HINT* Check it out.  If you want to help someone less fortunate than you have Christmas this year I will make it happen.

 8 walls in our home are now coated in fresh paint.

I have found at least 5 coarse gray hairs growing from my head. Either I'm working too hard or I got the short end of the genetic stick. I am told they start at the crown and take over by the time you're thirty (thanks Dad!).

We've had 4 movies ruined by malfunctioning sound systems and screens, as well as unattended, noisy adolescents. I wanted to blog about this, but exercised restraint for fear of sounding like a grumpy old lady.

Apparently 3 days is how long you can drive a 1998 Honda Accord on empty before you find out that the low fuel light doesn't work and Joel has to walk home to get the gas can while you wait in the car with your hazards on for twenty minutes.

Only 2 people/questions I voted for in the election actually won/passed. I'm now done mourning. Thanks.

And we booked  1 honeymoon that is only 166 days away!

So that is what's going on. Basically I can sum it up in three words: wedding planning, working, and home improving. Damn - three things, 5 words. You get the gist.
