Things have slowed down to a pace that bugs me.
I went to a bachelorette party in Vegas and that was a blast but recently, I gotten "in trouble" for things I've said or done in several forms of social media so I'll just say this: imagine 5 girls in a hot tub drinking directly from a bottle of champagne. Of course, I would include a picture of all of the girls except me. Because I'm thoughtful like that..
On the house front, we've looked at houses for months now. We have a better idea of what we will be able to afford, what area we want to live in, and what short sales entail etc., but we have yet to make an offer. I keep reminding B that this will be our first house, not our last, but we are still taking our sweet, precious time. (Read: I want to pick one!)
I'm taking my last prereq for nursing online. It's a nutrition class. It's kind of apropos (am I using that word correctly?) that I'm taking this class since I've gotten into the South Beach diet again and pay more attention to what I eat...but I have weekly assignments due every Wednesday and the earliest I've gotten one done was 3:30am Wednesday morning. I think my procrastinating is partly because the class isn't difficult and partly because I feel like the world owes me for all the education I've gotten and not the other way around...I'm constantly working on not thinking this way and trying to remind myself that education is a privilege and even fun.
On the nursing application front-haven't done anything.
On the engagement party front....well, we booked the venue and we've tried some cupcakes we might like to have at the party...but no further decisions have been made.
On the wedding front...no wedding coordinators have been booked yet. This is for a combinations of reasons...my friend recommended a wedding planner to me but her wedding hasn't happened yet. I kind of want to see the wedding before I pick a planner. I also feel like I should lose more weight before I start wedding planning (never ending battle)...and I feel like we should have a house because I would like to get this monthly expense determined before we start putting money into a gigantic party. Also it's up to me to move things along so that's somewhat daunting and yet comforting at the same time.
On the job front: I'm proud of myself. I haven't taken a day off since I had to take a day off to go to the doctor in April. I really wanted to take one off after I got back from Vegas and before I left for Vegas (short timers syndrome) but nope, I've been there everyday...one consistent thing for me to be proud of!
So in short, things are kind of boring around here....until I start to make some moves. I am starting to feel a twitch coming on.
