Life Update 4.21.08

Today is two months from our wedding!! I can't wait.

All the plans are slowly coming together. I'd say at this point we have everything planned, we just don't have everything done. Doing is often much more time consuming than planning.

I head north on May 2nd for an Indiana bridal shower on May 3rd, hosted by my wonderful friend and maid of honor, Audrey. It's going to be a lot of fun!

I then have another shower in Charlotte on June 8th, hosted by Dave's Aunt Linda. So many showers...I'm feeling spoiled.

Work is going well...I truly enjoy my job and rarely mind coming to work. (Although, like most people I would assume, I can always think of something else I'd rather be doing.) My only complaint is that my office (and yes I have my own office so I probably shouldn't be complaining about anything, but anyways...) doesn't have a window. So I start feeling slightly lethargic and trapped by the end of the day. I think it'd be okay (I prefer "okay" to o.k. and OK so I apologize if the word bothers you) if no one had windows, but just about everyone else does. So I walk by all of their light and airy offices and then sit down in my slightly gloomy and yellow-lighted personal space. Still, it's much better than a cubical (which I had at my previous job) and I've spiced it up with some plants and lamps from home. I also have lots of pictures in frames on the walls to give it a homey feel. So it's really not that bad. I was also blessed with a laptop when I started, which non-statisticians don't earn until they've worked here for about three years (or so I've heard). So I really did land a good deal.

Maggie is doing wonderfully...she's finally starting to understand how to "sit pretty", which I'm very happy about. It's definitely a trick I'd like to add to her collection. (For those of you who don't know, she can already sit, lay down, stay, roll over, play dead, give kisses, give five, speak, stand up on her hind legs, dance, and crawl. Sitting pretty, however, has never been something she's wanted to learn or even attempt to do.) Her wounds all appear to have healed well, although she does have a lot of scars. (For people out of the loop, she was hit by a car the end of January.) She also seems to be more chipper and have a new appreciation for life since the accident. :)

Everything else seems to be going well. I'm growing out my nails and working out regularly to get ready for the wedding, and I'm slowly working on Dave's place to get it ready for my big move the end of June. I can't WAIT to live with him. :)

That's all for now!
God bless!
