I've had a sore throat since Wednesday.  Sometime last  night or this morning, I developed a lovely ulcer in my throat.
I've been gargling with warm salt water, I've tried hot tea, I've tried soup.  They all help a bit, but don't make it go away.
I'm in agony.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how to get rid of it?

It's actually in my throat, so things like "hold a teabag" on it, which is all over the internet, aren't viable options.

My husband and I were supposed to go see the sold out My Chemical Romance show at the Electric Factory tonight. His father went back into the hospital today, so we won't be going. We're looking to sell our tickets at face value.

Here are the details:
My Chemical Romance with Billy Talent and Drive By
Doors 6:30PM
General Admission
$35.00 each ticket

We can work out arrangements on where to meet up if need be.  Comment to this post if you're interested.

Wow, another night with insomnia.  This is failing to be fun.  I'm not as worried about sleeping as usual though, since I have my rheumatologist appointment tomorrow, meaning I get to sleep in.  Man, I hope to hell he can help me.

The real reason for this post though, is to pick your brains.  I'm worrying about wedding details, as usual.   I'm petrified I'm going to forget something.  I'm getting married at 4PM on October 13, 2007 right outside of Philadelphia.  I'm planning the ceremony outdoors and the reception in a tent.  What do I need?  You might be especially helpful if you're coming and you give me some answers.  It could turn into a great suggestion, but I'm open to anything.

PS - I made an attempt to be overly vague for a reason.  I figured the less you all know, the more you'll suggest, meaning the likelihood of my overlooking anything decreases drastically.  Thanks upfront for the help.

Lots of good turning points for the wedding lately. We're unusually lucky. To the poin where I think I'm going to be hit by a bus or something. Check it out:

  • Invites - Scott and Andie are buying the materials and making them.
  • Music - we were going to have an IPod, but Chris' parents are paying for a DJ
  • Cake - Chris' parents are paying for this too.  I have to figure out how to get it to Huntingdon Valley.
  • Cake topper - my Mom bought this for us, and she got me my champagne flutes I've wanted for 10 years too.
  • Bubbles - my sister (yes, my sister) bought these, along with cute labels to put on them
  • Flowers - Jackie's mom Nancy bought all of them and already has the first bouquet done.  (Silk flowers may be tacky for some, but when every bridesmaid has allergies, it's the way to go.
  • Plates, etc. - Dad's giving us enough extra for them.
  • Registry - it's finally done.  Not that this is a stroke of good luck, but hell, it's like writing out a Christmas list.  So fun!
Maybe my recent trip to the hospital was the equivalent of that hit by a bus that I've been waiting for.

PS - We got the invite for <A HREF="http://taintedheaven.livejournal.com/70266.html">Patti's</A> wedding.  Ours are WAY better!

PPS - that link's not working on my preview, and I don't really care to fix it right now.

One Christmas, I'd really like to get together with my friends and do something for other people. I'd like to group all the money together that we'd normally spend on each other and use it to make a family's Christmas happy.

I'm a cornball. That is all.

Wow, 2 posts in one day! You'd never know I was busy over here.

List your favourite song from each group/person. If no favourite or you're lost about who they are, leave it blank. THEN add 3 new ones at the end.

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.

When I got back to my desk today with my Chicken Noodle soup (more on that later), I somehow got sucked into playing Gold Rush. Not so much because I actually want to go out and find the gold, (I'm a realist and I know I won't be the one to be picked) but because it has all of these neat little online games like word scrambles and stuff about pop culture. Well I have a ton to do and I don't feel like working, so I indulged. Well I just beat level 7 and although they gave me a direct link to the page the gold bar is supposed to be on, I can't find it! Ugh! This makes me almost as mad as the soup today.

La Salle doesn't have very much to eat that's actually good, but their Chicken Tortellini soup is an exception. They post this soup on the portal and I feen for it all week until it's CT soup day (as I like to call it) and I'm over there at 11:30 on the dot. So today, I go over to get my CT soup and wind up with Chicken Noodle. I was really sad and figured they just messed the portal up. Well a few minutes ago, Beth says she got the CT soup. Turns out that the Deli had it and the Salad Bar didn't. Why would two places practically right next to each other have enitrely different soups, when there's only supposed to be two soups each day?

Meh, I'm just super emo today. I'm still giving myself ulcers over the wedding. Mostly because I know what the biggest thing is that needs to change and that thing can't change. There's a deposit down on it already, there's noplace cheaper to hold that amount of people and my Mom refuses to let me move it. We need to get $10,000 in 394 days. Not likely. Not likely at all. So now, I get to talk to my Dad and tell him that it's off, at least for now. I told him when we got engaged it would be seven or eight years until we could afford it and he told us to do it sooner. Man, I'm driving myself batty over here. All I do is bitch and moan.

I'm going shopping with Vicky and Jackie on Sunday, that's a happy thought!

If anybody who lives near me sees anybody hiring for something like a cashier, let me know. I'm going to need to get more jobs.

EDIT: Mayor Street signed the smoking ban in Philly. This means that if my wedding goes as planned, there's not going to be smoking allowed at my reception. Half the bridal party, the groom and most of the families are going to be outside all night. Fabulous. Today is not my day.

My 333 number will be disconnected between 2AM and 6AM tomorrow. I don't really see a point in continuing to shell out the money for it when Sarah and Joe are moving and I can just use the house phone. Anyhow, both Chris and I will be using the 338 number. If you don't have this number, or if you lost it, email me or comment on here or call my cell and I'll get it to you.

I needed this. I wanted to do a nice long, picture post type of entry, but time just won't allow for that today.

Let's see what I've been up to.

I saw Avenged Sevenfold in February in Atlantic City, and I'll see them again in May at the Festival Pier. I will also be going to Ozzfest in August, because Chris is making me. His logic was that since Ozzy's playing this date, he'd feel bad if I didn't go.

We booked Rosewood Caterers for the reception. The wedding is officially October 13, 2007 now. It's going to be an evening reception, but Chris wants us to do pictures outside, so now we're looking for a ceremony location. Right now, I'm honestly more worried about how we're going to pay for everything. Mimi's supposed to be leaving in June, if I don't get offered her position and her salary, I need to find a second job. My dress came to my house today via Fed Ex. (If you want to see a picture, email me and I'll get one to you.)

I started Weight Watchers on April 1st, and I'm up to a whopping 7lbs lost. I feel so discouraged that I've lost so little, but at the same time, at least I didn't gain anything. I feel a lot healthier already, and I'm already doing a lot better with drinking a lot more water and eating more vegetables. Chris was suppposed to go on it with me, but he hasn't started yet. He's trying to get in gear though.

I've had two uncles die this month, my Uncle Joey on the 3rd, and my Uncle Ritchie just yesterday. Both of Scott's grandmother also just died within a week of each other. This was not how I wanted to cut down the guestlist. It sucks.

And now, for a rant )
tainted_heaven: (Default)
So me and Chris are throwing around wedding ideas, and I need opinions.

I can explain more once I get some answers in, but for now, please fill out this poll and send your friends to do the same.

Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose woman.

The priest asks, "Is that you, little Timmy Shaughnessy?

Yes, Father, it is.

And, who was the woman you were with?

I can't be tellin' you, Father. I don't want to ruin her reputation.

Well, Timmy, I'm sure to find out sooner or later, so you may as well tell
me now. Was it Brenda O'Malley?

I cannot say.

Was it Patricia Kelly?

I'll never tell.

Was it Sheilah O'Brien?

I'm sorry, but I cannot name her.

Was it Kathleen Morgan?

My lips are sealed.

Was it Fiona Grogan, then?

Please, Father, I cannot tell you.

The priest sighs in frustration. You're a steadfast lad, Timmy Shaughnessy,
and I admire that. But you've sinned, and you must atone. You cannot attend
church mass for three months. Be off with you now.
Timmy walks back to his pew. His

friend Sean slides over and whispers,
"What'd you get?"

Three month's vacation and five good leads.

So Christmas started out nice enough  We were all up by about 7 simply because we were so excited to see Joey open all of his presents.  Dad and Jean got over around 8am and we finally got to get started.

I need to spend a lot more time working and a lot less time getting lost in random (or not so random) blogs.

Chris and I spent the day yesterday at my Dad's house with him and Jean. Unbelievably enough, we actually enjoyed ourselves. Yay for that!

Last night, I told Vicky if I loved her anymore I'd be a lesbian. That made her smile, so I was happy.

I told her this at a show we went to at the Troc. It was neat because it was supposed to be in the balcony, but wound up on the mainstage. I've never seen the Troc so empty. I have to admit though, it was nice to be cold in there. You know, rather than have heating from risidual body heat of those around you. Seeing it empty has also helped me cement my wish to be married there. There's just something about the architecture of that building that I absolutely love, and I could really make out a lot of possibilities in my mind. One of the coolest parts of the entire show was when some guy who works there got up on the mic with a Darth Vader voice changer and started beat boxing. It was actually really cool.

I'm sick again, and of course, I'm miserable about it. My hands were doing this funny thing last week, from either a pinched nerve or my carpal tunnel. They weren't numb, really, but I had pins and needles and felt like I had no strength in them, so my craftiness for Christmas was put on hold as a result. I'm sitting at work now, desperately wishing that I was at home in bed. I'm seriously hoping I can stay awake to get some stuff done tonight. The week before Christmas always stresses me out.
