Udates on Things

The past couple of weeks have been a train wreck for me eating wise. I feeling really gross and feeling like the time has come to get back on track. It’s not really that hard for me to switch things back in gear since I eat pretty healthy to start with. For me it’s more a question of portion size. Need to cut those back and I’ll be back in the saddle.

It’s been hard to go on walks since there is still ash floating in the air and the sidewalks are covered. You can’t go barefoot anywhere without the soles of your feet turning black. It’s still coming down, a light dusting and everyday we’ve been sweeping or washing off our deck, patio furniture, plants and what not. No hanging laundry outside to dry since it will get dirtier out there than when you first washed it.

In other news… American Idol. Danny is gone. Now, I could care less about the finale. I can’t stand Adam, his screeching and overplayed emotion and him trying to “connect with the song.” He’s gross. And what’s that other guys name? Oh, yeah, Kris. I don’t care for him either. Oh well. Maybe they can bring Danny back.

Wedding update: The dress I was going to borrow for the little miss was burned to ashes in the fire at the friend’s house so I’m back on the hunt. The Little Miss has specifically said she wanted to wear “a pink twirl dress.” I found this one on e-bay, what do you think?
I think I’ve nailed down my shoe situation and will getting these and not these like The Bride had suggested.

I fly out to DC next weekend to throw The Bride a shower, which is turning into a small little affair. So far only 5 people can come and haven’t heard from about 8 people so the most would be 13 guests. I can totally handle that. Is there a reason people don’t RSVP? Are they waiting to see if a better offer and will respond a day or so before? Come on people, there’s planning to be done.

Glad today is Friday. I’m ready for the weekend and I’m ready to take a deep breath and let all the stress and tension leave my body. I feel like I got my ass kicked the past few weeks and it’s time to let it go. I’m ready to move on, look forward and get back to “normal.”

I cant believe after all youve been through that youre still gonna do the shower! She is LUCKY to have you in her life!

Ah, the ash is the worst!

It's amazing how people don't RSVP anymore... Very rude, if you ask me!

Tina said...

The dress is cute and the new shoes are SO much better. I like that brand from Nordstrom too...usually pretty comfy! Have a great weekend and I hope that you have an easy time getting back to normal after all you've been through!

The dress is great and the price can't be beat! I love the new shoes and I'll bet you will actually wear them more than once, not like those other hideous 80's shoes the bride picked!

It's still shocking for me to read about your friends losing everything. I hope they, and you, are doing better.

That dress is the twirliest!! It's so pretty.

TLM will outshine the bride in that dress. Wouldn't that just be sweet revenge?! And the shoes are so much better than the bride's selection (do you notice a pattern here?).

Just got over being non-RSVP'd myself about a month ago. Over half (12!) did not respond. I still think it's the height of rudeness but apparently am in the minority. I secretly hope there is a separate circle of Hell for those non-responders.

Glad to hear things are coming back together for you. I know you're in no hurry but I can't wait to read about the shower. Hope you have a relaxing weekend.

The dress is gorgeous and you can't beat the price! I also like your choice of shoes rather than the insanely costly one that the bride chose.

Have you thought of calling those people who have not RSVP or sending them an email? I usally do that, just to avoid guest who show up without RSVP.

Have a great weekend!

Have a good weekend- hope you can take a little time for yourself to de-stress!

Blossom said...

The shoes you chose are definitely cuter, yet close enough to the others that she shouldn't have a problem with the difference. I just think it's rude to not RSVP to something like a shower. Watch, a whole bunch of people who didn't RSVP will just show up. Have extra food in case!

Just popping in to say hello and sorry about the fire funk.

That dress is very cute, btw.

Pretty dress! Have a good weekend - you will enjoy D.C.! Hopefully it will warm up here a bit before you get here.
