Calgon, take me away…

Posted on May 7, 2009. Filed under: random |

This all-wedding-all-the-time thing kinda sucks.  Every moment I’m not working, I’m painting or sewing or haphazardly throwing things on a long to-do list that has long since taken a vacation from organization.  “Paint bathroom ceiling” sits right below “decide on importance of wedding programs.”  Little things mix with big things.  I’m prioritizing via this little trick called memory – if I remember it, it must be important.  If not, meh.

I’m totally sick of it and it’s only been this way for a few weeks.

With less than 20 days to go (ARGH!!! ohcrapohcrapohcrap), we are plugging through a thousand things, and luckily, they’re not strictly wedding-ish… or I’d probably say screw it and not do them.  But emptying random stuff from the guest suite can’t be avoided.  Picking up and laundering the evergrowing piles of clothes must be done.  Slipcovering the stupid couch — because we’re suckers and let the dogs sleep (and wrestle, argh) on the other slipcover which now looks completely disgusting — has gotta happen.

And then there’s the list of real wedding tasks: finish writing ceremony, meet with preacher, send road closure paperwork to city, invite neighbors, plan ceremony situation, finish song list, pick a first dance song, etc, etc, ETCETERA. *deep breaths*

Okay, gotta run and do something.  Thank goodness for work, which at least gives me an excuse to sit in front of my laptop (and blog!) rather than paint or sew or build a garden bench (yes, I swear, I’m totally gonna get that done).

How are y’all doing?  Anyone else in the Last Month Crunch?

As Seen on TV

Posted on February 10, 2009. Filed under: random |

Yup.  I’m one of THOSE people, the people who buy things they see on TV (hi, Mr. Ducky!).  I still use the Super Chef knives I bought in 1997, sometimes even to cut through aluminum cans!  Sorry, can’t find the link.  Evidently they didn’t take the country by storm as expected.

In my defense, it’s hereditary.  I’m pretty sure I saw Miracle Blade knives at my mom’s house over the holidays.  Don’t even get me started on the wonders of QVC and HSN, okay?

After all the build-up, you won’t be surprised when I tell you that I own, and love, The Snuggie.  I don’t care what The Today Show folks think!  Okay, yes, they do look  ridiculous, and I’m sure I do too, all five feet nothing of me wrapped in a slightly monk-ish looking blanket with arms.

What does this have to do with weddings?  Consider this permission to gift your favorite couple with a Snuggie for their wedding.  C’mon, you get the second one free!  Do it.  They’ll either love it or get a kick out of your wit.

Do you have any favorite As Seen on TV stories?  Better yet, do you have a Snuggie?

    I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt (and divorce papers) to prove it. Here I am again, pledging my life to my (new) love with eyes wide open (and heart racing) knowing full well how emotionally traumatic this can end… and doing it anyway.
