Well I've had a little bit of excitement since I last posted, so here goes -
I had a talk with my Dad about how we couldn't afford the wedding at the Rosewood and he agreed to ask his friend Paul if we could have it there. Well Paul said yes, so now we're having the simple yet elegant tent wedding that we wanted from the beginning. I've been calling around for quotes and stuff all day. Now I need to either find a caterer or figure out how much of a pain in the ass it's going to be to self-cater it. I know that I could pull something like that off, but everybody thinks if I do it, I won't be able to enjoy our day. I have to admit, they're probably right. Also, I'm a little worried about what's going to happen on the off chance that somebody gets sick from it.
I figured out a good savings plan that's going to give us about $5,000 before the wedding, so we booked the photographer, videographer and officiant last week. The only other thing coming out of this budget will be our wedding rings and the DJ. I'm buying things like paper for favors and invitations and centerpiece supplies as we get the money, rather than as one heaping expense. So far, this plan seems to be working nicely. The only thing that sucks is that my Mom's freaking out about the house. The shop isn't bringing in money, so we're struggling. Even if we stopped saving, it wouldn't be enough to help, so I'm not. It still sucks though.
I finally had my first appointment with my new primary care physician. He's awesome. Right away he told me that I might have fibro, but not to get freaked out because it could be a lot of different things too. I have to go for blood tests and I'll find out a week after what to do from there, like if I need to see a rhumetologist or if it's something the primary can handle. His first goal is to try to help my sleeping problems, because honestly, how does anybody get better without decent rest?
My Tuesday night class is no longer. I decided to drop it because life (or lack thereof) is getting in the way. The main problem is that I've been working 10 hours a day everyday for about a month now. After making dinner and doing "house stuff" that doesn't leave much time for schoolwork, and the time I do have, I'm too brain dead to accomplish anything else. I'm glad I dropped it, it took a lot out of me mostly because I had to do so much outside notetaking and it really started to add up. I'm keeping my Intro to Criminal Justice class, which is my Wednesday night class and I think that I'm only going to take one class a semester until after the wedding. I'm going to have enough going on without school.
This weekend is Halloween decorating/house cleaning weekend. OMG, the house is so awful right now that it's making me sick. I know I think it's a lot worse than it is, but at this point, I don't want to even let anybody from outside into my house. For once, I can't wait to clean.
PS - LJ pisses me off because it just gave me the hardest time ever trying to make a bulletted list. I say F bullets then.
