We're in the single digits.

Not just until the wedding, but also in brain cells. I think mom and I have lost about a trillion with each new countdown.

Tomorrow is my last day as a nanny! I'll be starting my new job as a florist the day we come back from the honeymoon.

Sara M. is my hero. She has been officially aquired, not so much as the wedding planner (since most of the actually planning is done), but more as the wedding executer. Double duty: She's in charge of making sure everything happens when it's supposed to happen, and that everybody is doing what they're supposed to be doing. Also, it's her job to just strictly execute anyone who is out of line. (Okay, obviously not, but the mental image is quite good). No but seriously, she's like the errand angel...and she's excited about doing it! I love that lady! In her words, this is going to be the best wedding "EVAH"!!!

(I hope she's right...)

Today has been madness and it's only 2:30. The kiddo hasn't quit screaming today. I put him down for a nap earlier, and then ten minutes later, a lawnmower woke him up. He's NOT a happy camper. He's finally asleep again...let's hope it lasts for longer than ten minutes.

I got an email from a girl that I specifically did NOT invite to the wedding because...well...she hates me. She's always been mean to me, and she's just generally not a nice person. Very much someone I do not want to have to deal with on my wedding day.

So in this email, she asks me if she's invited. "From one bride to another" she says...she just wanted to double check and make sure that I didn't accidentally leave her name on the list because she knows I would want her there. THE AUDACITY?!?!?!?!

No, you're mean to me and you spread nasty rumors about me while I pledged, you tried to get me kicked out of my club, you live to be the drama queen of every event, you love to cause problems, you've told people before that you hate me, and you've generally made every experience I've ever had with you miserable. That's what I really wanted to say.

Instead, I told her that I didn't have a clue she'd want to come because it's the weekend before her own wedding. I said that I got an invitation to one of my friend's weddings that is the week before mine, and I couldn't go because I'm absolutely swamped with things to do. I just assumed that the same would be true for her. I told her that I'd change it, but that our RSVP is already 50 over capacity, and people are going to be sitting in each other's laps (which is completely true). I gave her the website address and told her that I'd love for her to watch the webstream, but otherwise, I couldn't resolve the situation any further than that.

I didn't lie...I just tried to not be as mean as she is, and hopefully keep her from telling more people nasty stories about how awful of a person I am.

In other news. I have a job interview this afternoon. Let's hope this one flies. I have a couple of options right now, but quite frankly, I just don't love anything enough to do it for the rest of my life. So I'm still looking for something short term...that is, until we can get the funds together to pay for grad school and I can teach. Just wish me luck!

I GET TO GO SEE IT TONIGHT AND I AM SOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!! (Just ask Nathan how excited I am, and he'll tell you that he doesn't think I've slept for weeks.)

WEDDING!!!!!!!!!!! 22 Days and counting. (Maybe this is the real reason I haven't slept in weeks....or maybe it's because of this nasty cough. Whatever it is...I'm really tired!)

We're coming home in the morning to run some more errands, go to the shower that Nathan's wonderful Grandma is hosting for me, get Linsday fitted into her bridesmaid dress, find me some shoes, pick up the rest of the stuff from our shower a couple of weeks get the idea.

In the mean time, I'm still stuck trying to think up more superhero ideas for my crazy mother ;)
(Go read her blog.)

I keep forgetting to blog.

I've been sickly all weekend, and I have a severe lack of voice to prove it. Nathan has started calling me squeeky.

I fear that I have nothing to blog about because my mother has already beaten me to everything. By the time I remember to blog about something, she's already 4 posts ahead of me.

Please RSVP. I can and will continue to echo what mom said about that. This is NOT a traditional wedding...even though it's in the church, you MUST RSVP. Not please...MUST. If you don't, I cannot promise that you will have a chair. Even if you do, I cannot promise that you will have a chair ;) (Just had to throw that one in there for ya woman ;)

Mkay...back to the kid (who has learned how to crawl...but does it by using his head. I'll demonstrate later if you need me to). Later peoples.
