Maybe I will get around to posting pics of the house...semi finished.

I'd like to wait until we get stuff hung on the walls before posting. But, right now I'm too busy sweeping up white dog hair. :)
I love that dog. I really do. She has the best personality.....but, the hair is AWFUL! I told Peter I would do every chore in the house for the rest of our lives if he'd keep the dog hair swept up. He said that was up for negotiation. ;)

I've decided I need a sabbatical from blogging at work. It's taken over my free time and I am mad at it.
So, we're breaking up. I have no discipline.

I don't really know how long it will, I'm apologizing now. So, signing off until the next time......whenever that may be.....

Until then, pray for some discipline and for some sweet time with the Lord....while the computer is right in front of my face. Argh.

some wedding pics....

Left to Right - my mom's younger sister Leslie, my cousin Jenny, her mom Joy (mom's older sister), mom and me. Pardon my white legs. I wish you could have seen my shoes at the Bridal Breakfast. They were so stinking awesome red patton leater pumps!Sister Sarah and I before the wedding. She was pretty chill because she had already seen Daniel. I on the otherhand was just about to sing while the parents walked down. For the first time in my life, my microphone wouldn't work. I sang two verses and then the 3rd it finally came on. So, I repeated the 3rd just to appease my mom. :) I was flustered and started splotching. If you know know I splotch.
Sarah's photographer making her look silly. :) Her dress looked like clouds on the bottom! It was so angelic!
Peter and I posing before the wedding.
Some of the bridesmaids and I riding on the red BMW van on the way to the reception.

And, well, I have no other pics. I was trying to be a good Matron of Honor and be at my sister's beck and call. So, my camera got the back seat on Saturday night. I'm hoping I get more pics very soon!
I didn't even get a pic of Sarah and Daniel! Geez. I'm ridiculous.
It was a packed weekend. On Sunday, about 25 of Peter's family members came over to our house for brunch and an Easter Egg Hunt. I was basically a zombie most of the time. That day was a blur. Then my sister-in-law and her two little girls along with my other 2 nephews are staying with us until Wednesday for Nana Camp. I don't think my house will ever be the same. I'm kidding. It's been fun. I came home at lunch to find the kitchen table turned into a tent. They were eating hot dogs on a blanket. It was hilarious.
Today is such a boring day at work. We hardly have any patients and on top of that, it's been pouring down rain all day. Makes of a sleepy day of you ask me.
Hope this tides you over until next time.

In A Fog...

I thought the title of this post was appropriate seeing that I could barely see the car in front of me on the way to work this morning. The fog was crazy!! It's sort of lifted now.

Well....we're making it. I'll just hit some highlights.

Thursday: got to come home at noon because of the ice and snow. Picked up Chick-Fi-La on the way home. Peter was home too!! Ate my Chick-Fi-La and was excited to make some head way on packing up our room. 30 minutes after eating...I started feeling bad. Great. Just what I needed. Needless to say, I spent from about 2pm-8pm hanging out with the toilet...and I had a 101 degree fever. I was one sick little girl. Everything was out of my system by 8ish and I was about to be in a very drunken Phenegran stupor for the next 24 hours. I finally fell asleep around 9 and literally slept until 6:30pm on Friday. I think I might have overdosed on the nausea medicine. ;)

Friday - 6:30pm. Peter and his mom woke me up and drug me out of bed to start packing up my room. OH heavens. I don't remember much....but I remember falling asleep on a double bed mattress in our new bedroom on the floor.....still hadn't eat anything at this point.

Saturday morning - you can imagine my energy level at this point. Thankfully, Peter's mom locked me in the bedroom so she could finish waxing our floors. I took my time getting up (3 hours) and unpacking my clothes. It was nice. We moved until about 3pm. Not so bad!
I finally ate a turkey and cheese sandwich from subway. SCARFED it down. Got some energy to start unpacking my kitchen.
Went to bed at 9ish. I don't remember because we had to move the clocks.

Sunday morning - 6:45am (it's still dark???) Confused. Take a shower and get ready. Peter and I head to Abilene with the trailer. Get to Abilene around 11am. Relax a bit before the girls come over for the shower. Get ready for the shower. The rest is a blur....I think I stayed in the kitchen and washed dishes the whole time. I was very nonsocial. Very unlike me I tell ya. There were even TONS of babies there! I couldn't muster up the energy to even hold a baby! Man I'm sad!
After the shower was mom, dad, Peter and I spent the next few hours loading the trailer and putting the tarp on. Of course it would rain on the way back to Dallas. Finally got back to Dallas around 9:30pm. Got home to see Larry and Vivian in 2 brand spanking new white rocking chairs from Cracker Barrel on our front porch with bows on them!!!!! I was so stinking excited! We then unloaded the trailer.....and went straight to bed. I forgot about CHARLIE. We brought her back too! :)

Monday - woke ready, went to work. Worked my TAIL off because I was out on Friday. My desk was a tornado. A doctor covered for me. haaa.. :) At lunch, went to the bank, went to get my top altered for my sister's wedding and then to Subway. Took it home and then unpacked more until 2:30pm. Back to work. The rest of the day is a blur. Except for the fact that I came home to a home cooked meal thanks to Vivian! :) I did do the dishes after that...but it was actually fun!!

So there. My wrists are tired. This week will be a week of getting the house settled and prepping for Sarah's wedding. You probably won't here from me until next week. Don't be mad. :(
