Nothing to blog about...

But that's not going to stop me.

Nelso and I were going to go to my brother's baseball game but instead we're going to eat take out and cuddle on the couch and watch The Sopranos.

In case you didn't know, The Sopranos is awesome.

I've had a very busy day doing nothing productive. I had to send about 20 wedding related emails, organize a bunch of wedding related stuff, then I did some mind numbingly boring school work. I washed a load of Nelso's clothes and now I'm blogging.

On a brighter note, on Thursday afternoon at 3 PM my mother and I are going to a weight loss clinic to help us get in fighting shape for the wedding. It should be interesting, I'll let you know how it goes.

I wish I had more followers.

I'm seriously considering going out and following a crap load of random people just so some of them will follow me back.

I think it would make me feel much more interesting.

Pictures from the wedding planner

The wedding planner sent me a few pictures on Friday to use as a guideline in planning my ceremony/reception. I thought I'd share a few of them with you guys so you can get a taste of what we're in for.

I haven't decided if these pictures depict any elements that are actually going to be in MY wedding, but these are a good jumping off point. Plus they would only let me upload 5 pictures so this is just a taste of what I've been looking at. The first picture is obviously one of our cake options, the second and third picture are two of our options for the ceremony decorations, and the last two are two of our options for centerpieces at the reception. What do you guys think?

We went to church today.

It was very...um...."churchy." Nelso spent the majority of the time drawing caricatures of the pups in their cone heads on his bulletin. I think we're going to continue the search for a "church home."

Pups are doing much better. Scout is now allowed short, supervised periods without his cone. Buster still has to wear his the whole time. By Wednesday we should be able to do away with them altogether (the cones, not the pups). They took the last of their pain medicine this morning. I'm a little anxious to see how they do without it.

On the plus side, we get to watch Life and Breaking Bad tonight. Sunday is my favorite TV night.

I ordered wedding invitations!

They're wonderful and they're ordered and I don't have to stress about it one more minute. So hooray for me.

You can take our balls, but you can't take our freedom...

Actually, yes, I can take their freedom. That's what the baby gates are for.

The dogs are doing ok with the whole neuter-ation thing. They have to wear the cone hats. I was going to take pictures to post with my blog, but I didn't feel comfortable exploiting them to that degree. Nelso has lots of pictures AND video, though, if anyone is interested.

The last couple of days have been pretty slow around here. The dogs are supposed to take it easy, and Scout gets horrible separation anxiety, so I've been home pretty much the whole time, except for a two hour reprieve on Wednesday afternoon when I went to class. I skipped my classes yesterday to play nurse. I'm getting pretty stir crazy. We're planning to go out to dinner and leave the dogs home alone tonight. I'm looking forward to seeing how they react.

I STILL don't have wedding invitations... Tomorrow I'm going to go to my brother's baseball game in Picayune then my mother and I are going to continue shopping. Hopefully we can find something soon.

Wedding planning is for chumps

I swear to a higher power, if I don't get invitations ordered soon I'm going to have a massive coronary.

Tuesdays are the worst...

I got up early this morning to drop the pups off at Castration Station. They both looked as if they felt so betrayed...

I just hopped out of the shower and now I've got to RUN off to class, when all I want to do is crawl back into bed. Tuesdays are the worst.

Ok, I know that's not what they're calling it these days, but it's what I'm doing to my dogs tomorrow. Nelso has been pushing for it for weeks, and I can't put it off any longer. I know lots of dogs who have been fixed who are just fine, but I hate the thought of doing it to my poor little guys. Their lives are so sad... but at least they have their balls. Until tomorrow, that is.

BUT on the flip side, they have picked up some bad habits that this will supposedly stop. So maybe it won't be so bad. Maybe they won't feel hurt and betrayed and mutilated for no good reason but my own convenience. Maybe they'll understand their natural dog instincts, which they can't help any more than I can help breathing, were cramping our style and they won't hate us for turning them into sluggish eunuchs.

Poor pups.

Puppies Love the Beach

At least, mine do. We had a lot of fun. The dogs got really sandy and exhausted. Buster's favorite part was defecating in the sand and Scout really enjoyed terrifying the little black children.

Saturday, March 20, 2010


That is how we're planning to spend our afternoon. They have never been to the beach before, I hope it goes well. The last experience we had with a large body of water ended with Buster nearly drowning in the pursuit of geese.

On the plus side, Nelso is wearing shorts in public, which I love love love.

I'm ALMOST done cleaning the house, and I've hit a wall. I've got the carpets shampooed, the floors mopped, and the guest bedroom and bathroom in pristine condition. The kitchen, the living room, and our bedroom still need some major work, and I know I've got to not only do it but do it FAST, but I'm totally unmotivated.

I know Nelso has gotten pretty aggravated with me today. I sent him to Winn Dixie to get a Rug Doctor so I could shampoo our carpets and the upholstery in my Jeep. I mopped the floor in the kitchen this morning and it was still wet during his lunch break so he had to go pick up take-out for both of us. Then, when he finally got home for the 10 minutes left of his break, I was in a bad mood. Now, I've taken the vacuum apart so I could vacuum out the Jeep with one of the attachments and I can't figure out how to get it back together. So he's going to have that to deal with when he finally gets home from work. Bless his heart... He can't catch a break today.

I'm really excited for Heather to get here, but I've kind of lost sight of that in all this cleaning nonsense. Now I just want to be finished so I can relax.

I bought a wedding dress!

Oh yes I did! And we got a bridesmaid's dress for my sister too. And I just finished sticking stamps on Save the Dates and stuck them in the mail. So, after I track down a few more addresses, that part will be done as well. Plus we finally set a time for the wedding so I can order invitations. I didn't send Save the Dates to everyone I'm planning to send an invitation to, so I still have to get that crazy list into order. But I don't think it will be too too bad... At least I hope it won't.

I'm really on the ball with all this wedding planning nonsense. If Nelso will get his stinkin passport and find something for himself to wear to the nuptials I'll finally be able to breath easy.

On the other hand, Heather and her husband are going to get here in 24 hours and the entire house is still in complete disarray. So I guess I know what I'll be doing this afternoon...

I just got it. I think I'm going to love it.

If only it didn't take so dern long to download...

a quick look at my week

This is my spring break, but it is by no means a vacation. Here is a look at my upcoming week:

MONDAY: I had a job interview at 12, then I went to the grocery store to buy laundry detergent and contact solution. Now I've got several hours of cleaning ahead

TUESDAY: Job interview at 9:30 AM, then wedding dress shopping with my mother and sister, which is going to be hell on earth. We also have to start shopping for invitations and wedding favors. After that, I'm going to go to my little brother's high school baseball game. I'm going to spend the night in Picayune with my parents so we can catch up on all our wedding planning stuff.

WEDNESDAY: Job interview at 1 (for a job I don't actually want, no less), then finish cleaning the house, especially the mess Nelso will make when he's home alone on Tuesday night :)

THURSDAY: My friend Heather and her husband are coming to stay with us for a few days. I'm hoping to have the house clean and some sort of refreshments ready by the time they get here. It doesn't look promising.

What does everyone else have going on this week?


That is all. Thank you for your time.
