Drive-Thru Blogging

Ok, so I owe you all an update. If any of this is a repeat I apologize, but I'm too lazy to look through my prior posts to see if I already talked about this. Hehe.

- First, I got a job? Did you all know that? Well, I did and it's with a smaller company, there's only about 40 employees. I think I much prefer the corporate culture of small companies to larger corporations. When prior evil company hired me I never got a Harry & David gift box set with yummy goodies like new company sent me. Although, the lemon shortbread cookies, so not helping me fit into the wedding dress. More on that later. Love the people at the new company, dislike a.m. and p.m. commutes that average between 75 and 90 minutes each way. So far work has been a bit slow. I'm hoping that the pace picks up not in a crazy-manic way, but just in a yeah-for-not-being-caught-sleeping-and-drooling-on-the-keyboard-because-I'm-oh-so-bored sort of way. :)

- All floral-related items for the wedding have been taken care of. Which yeah! But boo...because now we have to go back and meet with the cake lady to redo the look and colors of our cake which is all lavendar calla lilies which doesn't really fit in anywhere now.

- Still have more mucus expelling from me than should be humanly possible. Antibiotics...ha! Not doing much for my system. Or at least not expelling things and drying me up quickly enough.

- Still a bit stumped about the dress not fitting, especially after my doc appt today where I got weighed and apparently weigh less than I did when I bought the dress. Today's weight was 119, back when I got the dress I think I was about 127. You do the math, I don't get it. Only thing I can figure is that since I've so been slacking on the exercise front, I'm getting flabby. Maybe the extra weight was invisible muscles that at least kept the tummy and bottom of my arms from being so flappy. Hehe.

- Oh, and I guess the last time we talked I left you with a not really mysterious secret....yeah, let's just leave it that way. Ha! So kidding! So my handsome, oh so smart, super-computer programming honey had an interview for a job in Colorado! And he got offered the position because...well, hello they'd have to be idiots not to snatch him up. Only little problem is that we won't know for sure until July 25 because the job offer is contingent on his company winning a contract. No contract = no work = no Colorado = sad, bitter Lisa & Sean. We're so ready to be done with the rat race that is this area and the insane commutes and the rude people! So yeah, don't ask me how we're going to make it through 2 months of not knowing, especially me of little patience. But working on getting the house ready to sell will hopefully keep our crazed little minds occupied. And if we don't go, well we'll have a pretty updated house to show off to all the out-of-town wedding guests.

- Last update, the kids are doing well. Except for Baden, the other pups in the neighborhood have been gossiping about him. Well, not so much about Baden, but about his father. Sean took him on a walk the other day in his fancy-high-power suit looking all GQ except for the minor detail of his belt being unbuckled and his fly hanging wide open. And of course, little Miss Observant, that being me, didn't even notice. Haha! Sean took this as proof that my eyes never travel to certain areas. Hmm, I think that was a complaint. Ehhhh, I'm too congested to care! :)

Phew....ok, I think that's enough for now. That should tide you over for the next few weeks, right? Pretty please?

Our Regularly Scheduled Programming will Resume when the Mucus Subsides

I know, I know. I am just a bad, unreliable blogger. I feel so bad. Ok, not really. Ha! But...I do have news though! Big, exciting, oh-my-gosh-this-has-to-happen-or-the-universe-is-just-mean news! But I'm not going to share that with you until I have time to do it justice. And right now...sorry, but my big box of Puffs Plus with Lotion tissues is calling my name. I believe this is the fourth box I've gone through over the last three days. Are you feeling sorry for my pathetic nasal-drip self yet? No...well fine then! That just means I'll make you wait even longer for the news. Just teasing! I will be kind enough to leave you with a hint.

....I heart the Rockies.....

Holy Haagen-Dazs!! I tried on my wedding dress yesterday, and granted it probably wasn't a good idea to do so after indulging in Moo Shu Chicken with plum sauce and Chinese pancakes, but the dress did not fit. I repeat, my wedding dress does not fit now!

That's right, I can't even zip it up all the way. So not fair!!! How can the universe be so cruel? But I took the hint and got my apprently ever-expanding butt on the elliptical yesterday and I did weights. A routine it looks like I will need to keep up with if I have any hopes of fitting into the dress by my wedding day.

So who votes for me just buying a new wedding dress?
