(thanks Suz for the witty title!)

That is the best way to describe our new place. Now don't go thinking we bought a place where they had 15 cats that haven't been outside in 10 years. It's just that they had a black lab and well they shed. No big deal right, the place is very clean expect for some dust and dog hair in the fridge. Now why am i bring this up? Well i'm HIGHLY allergic to animals, I have a hard time riding in a car where a dog or cat has been. (Sara can concur) It's pretty shitty actually. So before we can do anything we have to get a cleaning service to come in and scrub the place from top to bottom. Now normally I would do this but when we were there on Tuesday I was having a tough time and thought there is no way i'm going to be able to clean up dog hair. So that's it, i'm paying to have someone clean an already clean house. Done and done.

In other news, I had a very nice lunch with Sara and she's going to take me home so i can give her 500 bridal magazines! (before MG throws them out) I'll take her to the new place and.....

this posted before i finished... but this is pretty much what i wanted to say! HA! I don't blog for a few weeks and this is what happens! :)

I hit my head just so in the shower last night (i bet down to turn off the water and moved to quickly). Things like this happen to me all the time so I didn't think much of it. I woke up in the middle of the night with a splitting headache and spent most of the day with that same pain. The weird thing is it was only in my left eye and temple. I "web md'd it" and the only thing I could come up with was an eye strain. Yes, that could be it, but I have never felt this type of pain before and it didn't go away with Advil. I wasn't on the computer at work as much as I normally am so I thought that would help, but it is now worse (i know i'm on the computer now). So needless to say i'm off to bed, but this is just so odd for me.

Tomorrow i'm going to be a great day!!! I have my weekly 8am leadership conference call but Kimba's working from home tomorrow so i'll be able to wake up and start working right away. We have our walk through in the morning and our closing in the afternoon!!!

Ok it's off to bed, i'm not feeling all to well.

Thanks for the comments, i'm happy to know everyone else also made the best out of pre-cana!!!!!

Oh, and i'm so happy Ambre Lake won Rock of Love II!

Our Saturday


I promise i'll be back more often, i've missed you all tons!!

Let me quickly recap and fill you in on our Saturday thus far and what is to come.

Today was Pre-Cana at the Paulist Center in Boston, Wikipedia definition below:
Pre-Cana is a course or consultation Catholic couples must undergo before they can be married in a Catholic church. The name is derived from John 2:1-12, the wedding feast at Cana in Galilee, where Jesus performed the miracle of turning water into wine.
Approaches to Pre-Cana vary among Catholic parishes. Often six weekly sessions will be led by a priest or deacon with support from a married Catholic couple. Common topic include: compatibility of the couple, basic principles of Catholic marriage and family life, conflict resolution within marriage, and natural family planning.

Let me tell you I am damn lucky Music Guys is also Catholic or I would never hear the last of how i dragged him to this. We did the fast version an all day "class". Let me tell you how serious MG took it...One of the questions in our "fighting fair" piece was "How do you and your future spouse resolve arguments" he answered arm wrestle. Lovely!

We got some bad looks from others as we're sitting there laughing at what each other put. They had about 15 different topics with questions and every one of them was taken with that seriousness. The people behind us were really into it and I think we annoyed them. There was a booklet in our packet called "Together for life" and we looked at each other and said Together for "now". And that was within the first 10 minutes so I think everyone around us knew what they getting into sitting next to us. It was a joke, my goodness people, you have to be able to laugh at yourself. But I think that might have pushed it.

It was not as bad as I had thought it would be, I actually enjoyed it! They had a couple come up and do mock vows and when the girl was saying them she started to get choked up. It was so cute, and then of course I start to tear up. I'm going to LOSE IT when we're up there, I always do. I look over at MG and he's looking at me like i'm crazy, he'll be worse then me, I know it!

You would think that's enough for one day right? Oh no, there's more!

I'm about to get ready as my boss is hosting a party this evening at his house for all of his direct reports and their spouses. Yep people you got it, party at my bosses! I'm looking forward to it, but i'm not sure about my other half. He'll enjoy himself, i know he will! Only thing that is a real bummer is some friends of ours are having a very sweet party and we're going to miss it. We did say we might stop by after, but I don't think that will happen. Oh well!

Off to put on my party pants! GREAT to be back!!!!

Anybody still there??? :)
