Remembering Arusha

The roommate before last purposely left her mess behind for us to deal with and said we could have it cleaned and take it out of her deposit. But WOW...after only a few months of living here she sure left quite a mess:

I know I have been slacking on my blogging lately.

I could talk about the latest roommate drama, wedding plans, work stuffs or just tell you what I did today....not sure where to begin really. What do you want to know about reader(s)?

I am assuming I have more than one...I know Joycie reads this - "Hi Joycie!"

I mostly havent been blogging because I have been spending sooo much time working on photos from Jen and Ian's wedding.

A Day Off
I woke up without the aid of an alarm yesterday at 7:30am.I probably could have easily convinced myself to go back to sleep, but instead I wanted a full day to myself and got my butt out of bed. I cleaned, farted around on the puter, excersized, went to Ikea with Rachael, went to a girl's potluck at Haydees, went to Target, did dishes, watched a little bit of TV, new roommie stopped by with some papers and to measure her room, I made dinner. Wes and I were relaxing in a post-dinner haze when I looked at my blackberry to see our therapy appointment reminder pop up- Whoops! We only go every other week and the last appointment was canceled because I didn't feel well. It was about seven minutes to the hour and I said "let's go!" Wes said "c'mon, we won't make it". But away we went. In fact we were only about seven minutes late to our appointment. Not bad!

I think a mid-week day off should happen at least once a month, that was good!

Two Years Ago

Two years ago I blogged from Boston:

Quick Blog from Boston
So I have a few moments since my cuz went to the dentist and the nephew is sleeping. So I have decided I do not like red-eyes. I was looking forward to the in-flight movie and free sodas and I got neither. I also like to read my magazines and all the lights were off so people could sleep. I would have been an asshole if I turned on my overhead light. So I tried to sleep as much as I could but was mostly bored on my way to Philly. Once in Philly I made my way to my next flight and got onto the smallest plane I've ever been on in my life. I swear I've ridden city buses larger than this! Only two seats on either side of the aisle, and the seats were tiny! No nothing offered either. It was a one hour flight and so since I felt really wonky from the moment I got off the long flighyt, I slept on this one hour flight. I have to say once I arrived in boston I just felt gross. I wanted to brush my teeth and take a shower and sleep. But had the whole (three hours later) day ahead of me. So even though it was 830am when i arrived, it was really 530am my time. Oh boy! I had a great time with my brother and his family though and my nephews, although getting older are still a blast. Later we took a ride to my cousins, where I would stay and all had dinner. My uncle and another cousin came out too. It was really fun./ Although after dinner, I laid down on the couch in the living room next to the fire place and I was out like a light.. . . oh andhave I mentioned how freezing it is here??? It's soooo cold! Very pretty, but cold. And I am not usd to it so I walk around the house with a hat and fleece and socks and slippers. Anyway. . the main joy of this trip besides seeing the nephs, is seeing my cousin-nephew Connor, who is two (almost 3) and my new baby neice Alicia. They are both very precious and I commended jen and kevin. they make it look so easy! ANyway my babe just called, so I'm off!

Got the Dress!!

Most people do not take a wedding gown home before they put a deposit on a venue....but I guess it just worked out that way for me. I will not go into detail or post pictures because it's a surprise (mostly for my groom-to-be). But I am very happy! Thanks to all my friends and family for coming with me to try on dresses, or looking at photos and giving me your honest opinions.

Much appreciated!
