So today I went shopping with a friend of mine for wedding dresses and....
I purchased my wedding dress!!!
It's so beautiful and damn, I look good!
As soon as I put on a veil--regardless of the right or wrong dress, I was in tears, so excited, jumping all giddy for joy. I'm REALLY GETTING MARRIED!!!
I went with a friend of mine Nancy from my old school. She has been giving me input since day one and sharing wedding ideas. Out of pure hope, I asked her to come dress shopping with me, and very excitingly, she accepted. We had the BEST time. The dress was nothing like I had imagined, but it fits so nicely--and brings all the things in that should be brought in. I won't leak out details--something must be kept from Steve, but if you want to look, I'll send you the website privately. I refuse to take chances!
And then, to end my day, I decided I would ask my friend Nancy if she'd be my matron of honour. She was stunned and it was unexpected but after she confirmed a few times if I was sure, she said yes--and then I confirmed with her a few times to see if she was sure.
And now, she's all over asking me for details and lists and needing to know when I'd like a shower...all kinds of silly goodness.
It turned out to be such a great day:)
So here's the update:
Wedding dance: selected (secret for now)
Father daughter dance: selected (secret for now)
Ceremony musicians: selected (violin and cello duet--it's good to know musicians!)
Wedding party: complete!
Wedding dress: yeah baby!

Food + decorations: with the venue
Invitations: know who I'm going with
Cake: know who I'm going with
Tuxedoes: know who we're going with
Back to the drawing board...
Went to the doctor's today. Am unhappy with my weight gain and how even after changing diet and exercise, nothing seemed to change with me physically. Am unhappy with the amount of discomfort I am always seeming to feel. Am unhappy with my heart rate constantly going faster even when I am not doing much or thinking about a whole lot. Am unhappy with the massive amounts of fatigue and depression I seem to feel. Am unhappy with me period.
So, day after tomorrow, I get to go and get a slew of tests taken. Including for high cholesterol and anemia and about a dozen or more things.
I love being back at the start, having no clue.
I just want to feel comfortable and happy with myself again. I haven't felt a lot of that. I've felt pretty much the completely opposite all the time. It's pretty much sucked.
**Side note: took some pics of Willow today that are pretty fun. Will post them soon.**
My planet, and the future of my children is something I take very seriously.
I've come to the conclusion that sleep isn't all that important.
I enjoy it, my body can't function without it, but it isn't all that important.
If it was, my body would allow itself to have the full 7-8 hours of sleep that research has shown the average adult should have.
I'm just fed up. I have been up since about 4am, barely slipping in and out of unconsciousness until finally at 5:30 I had enough and just lay there with my eyes wide open. And before that, I was up several times throughout the night.
And I just don't get it. I mean, it's always been this way, but it feels like it's just gotten worse the older I've gotten. I hate my anxiety.
1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
wrap and plant them under the tree
3. Colored lights on tree/house or clear?
I prefer clear/white
4. Do you hang mistletoe?
we used to, but I don't have my own
5. When do you put up decorations?
When I get around to it!
6. What is your favorite holiday dish?
Homemade perogies and cabbage rolls (damn Ukranian in me!)
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child:
They all pertain to Halloween...Christmas and me didn't really mesh too well
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
I think when I discovered all the gifts and then realized on Christmas day that the ones "from Santa" had been where my parents had stashed the ones from them. I'm not sure how old I was.
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?
10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree?
Carefully?? I only have a little plastic one for now. When we get married and have a house, we'll go for a real one. But in the meantime, ball ornaments, strings of beads and the ornaments I've collected from my parents over the years (they started me and my sister our own collection when we were teenagers). Oh, and a star on top!
11. Snow! Love it or Dread it?
Dread it. No one knows how to drive, the sun goes away and it's cold. I only like it on Christmas day if I'm not going anywhere.
12. Can you ice skate?
Not well. My butt has hit the ground on more than a million occassions.
13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
I really wish I did.
14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
Making sure that my nephews are happy and don't want for much.
15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?
My mom's chocolate chip cookies.
16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer...lame but I like that.
17. What tops your tree?
A star for now.
18. Which do you prefer giving or Receiving?
Giving--but not shopping.
19. What is your favorite Christmas Song?
O Holy Night. I wish I knew how to sing it. But other than that, I hate Christmas music.
20. Candy Canes?
Only the fruit flavoured ones.

Ok...so how cute...Steve bought me the Dirty Dancing dvd today. Out of the blue...no reason. It's funny, cuz I always think about picking it up, but choose not to, or choose something else, or decide I just don't need it. But I've never hinted. I love that in spite of his male nature and realistic perspective that it's not great movie making in terms of acting and dialogue, he knew how much I used to love it when I was younger. I remember, we taped it off the tv and I swear, me and my mom would watch it every day after she came home from work--and we'd rewind the last dance over and over. Hell, my mom wanted to rewind it! So yay.
And now our Smallville collection is complete with Season Five...and hooray for Steve buying Supernatural season one too!
S'all about the movie love and tv goodness:)
Greetings from Vienna. That's right, VIENNA!!
I've already ventured through London, England, Glasgow Scotland,(Which I ADORE), Dublin Ireland, Paris France(which we really didn't like), Berlin Germany (which wonderfully surprised me), (and some other cities in those countries on day trips) and finally, here I am in Vienna Austria. Thought I'd take a minute to say hello and that overall am having a wonderful time. Sleep is not the greatest and there is NO AIR CONDITIONING practically anywhere, nor do people seem to believe in cold drinks, but still having fun. We are constantly go-go-go so the summer is just whipping by, but already there are a few cities we know we definitely must return to. (I almost cried leaving Glasgow). I will definitely have many anecdotes to speak of when we come home in three weeks or so. In the meantime, we are having issues uploading our pics so that will have to wait until we come home as well, but believe me, there will be quite a few to look through.
Hope all is well with everyone. Much love and stay out of trouble!!
Oh yippee yay. My paid account expires in ten days...hooray.
A bunch of randoms...
This morning I found out I was one of four out of 11 randomly selected teachers to participate in the follow-up workshop to our previously useless ones, this coming Tuesday. GRRR. My teaching partner is also taking part, so both of our classes do not have either of their own teachers that day--thus, no stability. This pisses me off. It's crunch time and being away from the class is a big no-no.
We got our teaching partner/classroom packages at the long-ass staff meeting today. Well, no FuzzyFace (my teaching partner, Rajeev) and I aren't split, thus continuing the marriage as other staff call us. While I was excited that we will not have summer school there this year and don't have to pack up all our stuff, I, however, I have to move rooms--which sucks. Which sucks more, I am moving to a room without windows. That bites the big one. Now, initially I was going to ask my principal to keep me where I am, because I freaked due to my very OBVIOUS winter blues and need for sunshine, but Rajeev and I talked about it and worked out a system that on days where I think I may be going crazy (quite literally) he offered to teach from my classroom and I in his. But still...a move...I've been in this classroom for three years. I know it. I have it all figured out. GRRR.
I realized that I don't have any earrings to wear to my friend's wedding on Saturday--and I found out that the principal IS attending. NO ONE is happy about it. She invited her because this woman controls her job and to stay on her good side...and...it is and Indian wedding and they are always HUGE and you can't get away with saying it's small and close friends and family only. Grr...this means my SATURDAY (and these start at 9AM) will be me putting on my best face and keeping my tongue bitten right down all freaking day...my freaking SATURDAY!!
I showed the kids the first episode of Smallville today and I think they really loved it. Some even said they really wanted to start watching more of it...hee hee hee...the WB owes me some cash there!

Dana Reeve (Christopher Reeve's wife) died in her sleep last night of lung cancer.
I can't imagine what her children must be going through.
