Skinny

I think I’m going to buy some diet pills today, I am controlling my eating to mostly low fat foods, fruit and veggies and exercising like crazy, and it’s not working.

Wedding

So, here I am, engaged now for a full 2.5 days, and I feel a tizzy coming on. Even though we’ve decided on a simple wedding (although our definitions of simple aren’t the same–John said that by simple, he thought simple, like when his mom got married at City Hall and then they went home), ...

a dress, a shirt and tie

So we’ve got a location, the rings, the flowers, and the invitations were just ordered. Now we need an officiant, a dress, a shirt and tie for John (he has a suit) and…hm…that’s it really. What am I forgetting? This can’t be this simple, can it?

It’s like doing an intense, ideal yoga class, where you do all the poses perfectly. ...

Post-Thanksgiving

We hosted Thanksgiving yesterday. It’s our fourth Thanksgiving as a couple that we’ve hosted, and the eighth that I’ve done. And it is the first time that I’ve had a dishwasher. I thought I’d planned enough time for everything yesterday. We had been working crazy hours all week and so I figured about 3 hours ...
