Is it so much to ask that my family support me? Seriously, is it? I don't want my memories of my family's involvement of my wedding to be a bad one, and so far, that's all I've got.
Thursday, October 25, 2007
- That I don’t have any real friends, even though I know I do.
- That my mom will pass away or get really sick just before the wedding.
- That F’s mom or dad will pass away or get really sick just before the wedding.
- That I will be in credit card debt til the day I die.
- That my nagging about picking up after himself will make F hate and resent me.
- That we’ll never sell my house.
- That I’ll get sick on our Honeymoon.
- That I’ll not have Bridal Body 2008 for the wedding.
- That I’ll tell F’s dad off for being a racist bigot.
- That I’ll never find a wedding dress.
- That if I do find THE DRESS, my sister will be angry with me for not letting her make it.
- That F will want to raise the kids in his religion that I think is horribly sexiest.
- That we won’t be able to have kids.
- That there will be something wrong with our kids.
- That I’ll keep messing up dinner in someway every night for the rest of our married life. I seriously think this would change if we had a different stove!
- That The Crazy will be unbearable for poor F when I have whacked out pregnant hormones.
- That the global warming is as bad as they say it is and our kids will be doomed.
- That F will get a job far-far-away and I’ll have to move away from my family.
- That my sister’s cancer will come back.
- That I’ll lose my job.
- That I wouldn’t be able to find a new job.
- That you’ll all think I’m crazy because of what I worry about.

All the while trying to tell myself that the things that hadn't been finished wouldn't matter, no one would notice. I don't even know what the things were that I hadn't finished. I just had an overwhelming feeling that they were all major wedding things that should have been done months before hand.
364 more weird, stress inducing dreams to go.

1. O.D.ed on allergy meds which had F sending me promptly to bed. I was in a haze the rest of the day. To the point I didn’t hear my neighbor say Hi to me when I was sitting out in the yard.
2. Made a slightly raw dinner. F really needs to speak up on these things.
Me: "Hmmm this is kinda raw.”
F: “Yeah.” (after he had finished it all)
Me: “Why didn’t you say
F: “I didn’t want to hurt your feelings.”
Me: “That’s nice, but I don’t want you eating raw food!”
3. Dyed my hair to cover up the gray.
F: “Did you color your hair a different color?”
Me: “I used a different brand. Why? Does it look darker?”
F Nods his head and wrinkles his nose in dislike.
4. Slept in the guest room because apparently coming down from an Allergy med high makes me restless and cranky.
5. Packed, and then forgot my lunch on the table.
6. Touched up the polish on my toes. Yes, I do keep it in my draw at work. O.P.I.(Chicago Champagne Toast) is the best polish around, and is extremely expensive. It is totally the brand I hope to use for The Wedding.
7. Ate lunch outside and debated not coming back into the office.
8. Checked out Say Yes to the Dress website after watching it on TLC this weekend and crying because my mom may not get to go dress shopping with me. And gagging on the fact that these girls’ DRESS budget is my WEDDING budget.
9. Was disgusted that on website above the dress they said is right for my body type is akin to the T.P roll cover my grandma knitted for us. Can you say, Gone with the Wind?
10. Chatted with co-workers about various un-work related topics.
11. Wrote this post.

F, and just about everybody, is extra irritating at this time. The littlest things set me off.
For instance. F wants to go to this event and invite Second Eldest and her Man. He's been talking about it for over a week. However, did F do any of the research needed in aiding the decision to attend the event? Why no. So what follows is the conversation we had:
"Can you look it up?"
"You didn't look into it?"
"No. So will you look it up? After all, you just sit at a computer all day." (that trips my trigger every time.)
"You've been talking about this all week, why didn't you look into it?"(I'm starting to steam.)
"I don't know. Just look it up, I can hear you typing at your computer now." (It's called multi-tasking, you should try it sometime!)
"No, look it up when you get home."
So tell me, is this a guy thing? Every time I see an event that I want to attend I look into. Cost, time, location. I print stuff out, map it, whatever.
When he sees an event he wants us to attend? He asks me to do all the leg work. While at work. Even though we have the Internet, at home.

- To the Jackass with the big fancy expensive car, the off ramp has two lanes in it. If you'd taken a moment to notice, the cars were lining up either on the right or the left, to make their turns. You however, decided to plop your fancy butt smack dab in the middle of the lanes, hence blocking those of us who were making a right turn. You also failed to notice that the cars were lining up behind you, in 2 very distinct lines.
You're a Jackass.
- To the other Jackass who took lessons from the first Jackass, again, there are 2 left turn lanes onto the one way street. If you pull into the far right left turn lane, it means you are turning into the far right lane. Thank you so much for pulling into the far right left turn lane only to cut me off by turning to the left lane. Hence making a diagonal turn, that if I'd turned at the same time, which is the point in having 2 turn lanes, for traffic flow; you would have hit me smack in the middle of my passenger's side. Effectively caving in the entire side of my car with your SUV.
You're a Jackass.
- To the Dude standing on the corner holding the "CELL PHONES! TWO BLOCKS WEST!!!!" Sign for some random cell phone store, I don't mind you b-bopping(yes, I said b-bopping) to the music you hear in your head, and I'm glad you have an honest job and aren't out there being a criminal. However, it IS criminal to be standing on a busy street corner, with a hard on, calling attention to yourself.

- Last night after I’d just crawled into bed with a snoring F, my phone rang. I ran to the other room having recognized my Second Eldest sister’s boyfriend’s ring tone. She called to wish F a belated birthday. As we were chatting she says, “Well I also have to tell you, G(her bf) proposed.” Stated most matter of factly, without a hint of the glee I had when I teared up when I told them F and I were engaged. I could, however, hear the smile in her voice.
“OMG!!!!” That is so awesome! What did you say?” (Honestly, I doubt she would’ve called to say she said No. Would any of us engaged people have made the calls to tell people we said No? And yet, everyone asks anyway.)
“I’m not certain.”
“WHAT? You’re not certain what you said, or you said you weren’t certain?!?!?”
She laughs, “I said, Are you serious????” (In the retelling to F, he comments at this point, Must be a family thing.)
“HAHAHA, I said something similar to F. So it’s not just you.”
“ I told him I wasn’t use to the idea, and to ask me again in a half hour.”
“I know! I know! But it just took me completely by surprise. So he waited and asked me again.”
“And! So? Am I getting a new B-i-L???????!!!!”
“YES!”(Actually she dragged out the telling a little longer than that, she loves to get people all riled up, I was totally on the edge of my seat.)
At this point I’m so giddy, we both are. Everyone in the family has been waiting for them to get married. He’s really great. WAAAAAAAAAAAAY better than her other 2 ex-husbands. Yeah, 3rd time? Total Charmer!!! So this is so totally awesome!
Some Not so Happy
- I’m totally jealous of the fact that they got engaged, in Maui. On.The.Beach.In.Maui.
I’m also feeling a little of my bridal thunder being silenced. Yes, I am a little selfish, it’s my wedding next year, not hers! She’s done this already. Twice. I’m a horrid person.
- Now we can plan and look at some stuff together! She’s not going whole hog this time, but still, FUN FUN!!!
Some Not so Happy
- When I e-mailed my mother to get a time frame for when she’d be back from down south, where she winters, Thanksgiving or Christmas? She told me that since her BF’s cancer is back, she may not be coming home for the holidays in order to stay down there and help care for him.
I wanted to go wedding dress shopping while she was home during that time.
When I got home, I cried. F said I could go with my sisters.
I told him it just wasn’t the same.
- I get to go Wedding Dress Shopping!!! Hell, I’ve already got the shoes all picked out! hehehe

As for the boots? FABU! And can you believe? SEARS? The Softer Side of Sears has really come through for me on two boot occasions. I may have to just go to them for boots from the get.
Towel bars for the bathroom? Check! To whom ever re-did our bathroom and placed the tile towel bars at a height where hanging your towel over said bar then causes the T.P to be wet? You’re a dork. Oh, and also, the second tile towel bar you hung? You know the one that hangs OVER the heat/ac vent? Again, DORK. Although I will miss a heated towel come this winter.
F’s birthday present? Hidden at the neighbor’s house. He still thinks all he’s getting are the slippers and dinner. HA HA!!!! I’m so sneaky!
Of course the weekend was over shadowed by me “losing” my engagement ring! *GASP* As we were getting ready to leave for church, I could not find said ring. I called F to help me search. We tore about the bedroom. “I don’t remember taking it off last night!” I cried to F. He started ripping off the covers in case it came off during the night. As I was going to hang up my towel on the stupid towel bar from above, it hit me! We’d gotten home late the night before and half asleep I’d place my engagement ring in the cleaner, in the bathroom cabinet. Where I found it, safe and sound and shiny clean.
F stated that we need to get it insured. Um, yeah.

Here have been a few of mine to F in last few months:
- If I ever get that fat, smack me. But you know, do it nice a way, don't mean be about it. Said after seeing a trio of young girls who were really extremely over weight. I'm no lightweight myself, but even I was disgusted.
- If I ever wear an outfit that is too young/old/tight, smack me. Uttered during Church about another member whose dress was so tight, the buttons were straining to stay on. Also about the same member a week later who was wearing a bare backed halter top to Service. She's really too old for that and it's completely inappropriate for Service.
- If I ever go grocery shopping dressed like her, smack me. Look at her, those heels are so high she can't even push her cart. Sneered about a woman who was shopping at Costco with her young impressionable daughter wearing a very low cut, snug tight shirt with an extremely good push-up bra, tight skinny fit jeans and strappy gold heels. And I know I wasn't the only woman making comments or staring either. That poor daughter, what image issues she'll have.
Or how about If YOU ever? I've bet you've all played this one too:
- If YOU ever cheat on me, I'll make you hurt in ways you never thought possible. I never said I wasn't a little psycho.
- If YOU ever hit me, you'll be someone else's bitch(in prison). Told to F while relaying my mom's advice about how she threatened my father that she'd leave him, with 3 little kids, if he ever laid a hand on her. Not to say he was violent. They psycho had to come from somewhere. (sorry mom.)
Anyone else? What have you said: "If I/You ever......smack me"?

- You are my Co-Worker, not my Boss, so back the hell up off me!
- We work in cube land, so Yes, I can hear your every bitchy double standard words about every one's too loud cell phone ringing, but never anything about your own stupid Nextel.
- You are not the only person I do stuff for, so stop acting like you are the one and only, and wait your turn like everyone else.
- Stop listening in on my conversations and then making comments for which you were not ask for.
- Just because I'm younger than you doesn't mean you can act like my mother. I have one, and she is much better than you.
- If you're not going to invite me to lunch, don't whine when I don't invite You to lunch.
- If you are sick, stay the hell home! We don't want to listen to you hacking up a lung. Just because you are bored at home does not give you the right to come to work and infest the office with germs.
- It's extremely rude to invite yourself to my wedding. I was going to invite you anyway, but you shouldn't assume I won't cut you in order to invite, um, MY FAMILY.
- I am poor. I am planning a wedding. So when I tell you I can't afford to put in for the Boss's Christmas present, don't look at me and say, " Not even $4?" Especially after I also just told you I'm not buying MY OWN FAMILY presents for Christmas this year.
- You have an office door, shut it. I don't need to hear you ordering your hemorrhoid cream or berating someone over the phone.

Priest: "Do you take this man?"
Hungry me: "Yes, I'll have HAM!"
