Long time comin'


It's been a while, yes. It's amazing the things I can find myself doing instead of writing or reading blogs. What are these things, you may ask?? Oh, I really don't know. Time is going by WAY fast and
THAT
IS
GOOD
.
I don't think March 7th can get here fast enough. I am always whining about time going too fast, but here I am at 3:30 in the morning just wishing it were at least 6 (this is unthinkable!! i hate 6 a.m.!!). I can't sleep, so I figure I may as well be busy doing something...

A lot has changed (or not changed, I really don't know) since my last posting. I don't even know when that was...
I am still so incredibly in love with Christian that I can't even remember what is was like not loving him. It grows more every day and I am amazed that it's possible. I am so 100% ready to be a wife, a mother and an equal partner in, what I plan to be, the most fabulous life EVER!! Christian and I have decided that we are going to have a lot of fun together. He cracks me up with his dry humor and quick whit. I think I just make him laugh because I'm completely hopeless. How have I made it 27 years without him?? Who can tell?!?
I stay up in Laurel most nights - Sarah Lynn and I are roommies. She likes to wake up at unthinkable hours and tell me what time it is. I like to roll over and try to forget about it. tee hee. I love it when she climbs in my bed and lets me cuddle with her. She's such a delicious creature and I adore getting to spend time with her.
Grandma Linda and hang - we're like home-girls now. We go shopping, we work out together... She's great! We are so lucky to have her here -- she really takes care of us. I keep telling her we'll keep her around as kitchen staff - and she won't have to clean, just cook.
Man! That is the weirdest part, to me, about getting married. I have to like cook and stuff. I'm so used to coming home and grabbing a handful of crackers or M&M's and calling it good, throwing a plate of chips and cheese in the microwave, making a quick batch of mac 'n' cheese or heating up a steamers bag of veggies. In 25 days I'll have to put food on the table that 1. is not only edible, but 2. that has a semblance of a meal. Weird.

Ok, so it's heading for 4 o'clock... tick, tick, tick... The real problem here is my mind. I am on super over-load. I have to go to bed with my ipod or I can't fall asleep. I have a to-do list running through my mind at all hours of the day. It doesn't really help to write it down because there is always something to add and then I run through the whole list again -- it also doesn't help when I have to write down "find old to do list." Haha. Pathetic.
Oh well. I think I'll turn on my "Wedding Day" play list and try to catch a little sleep... or maybe I'll do another sheet of addresses... or maybe... zzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Kidding. I wish I could fall asleep like that. Nope, that's Christian - he's the typical male; talk about a pillow and he'll fall asleep.

Congrats girl! I am so excited for you! I was so excited when I saw that you posted on my blog...then like a month later, I come to your blog and look what I find! What an exciting and blessed time for you! I wish you all well and I hope that sleep will find you so that you can just enjoy the journey. You will have to give us all more details on the wedding...! I just love weddings, marriage, and motherhood and I am so excited for you in this next facet of your life!

So I haven't looked at your blog in a while but when I got an email saying that your name and email had been changed, I had to visit your blog and find out the details. Congratulations!! I'm so excited for you. I've only been married for 6 months now but it's been amazing. Definitely better than the single life or just dating :)Have fun!
