Wal-Mart Children

Um, no.
I think this is just what those kids I have seen (heard!) at Wal-Mart need.
In fact, I'd be willing to open a day care like this one. I promise I wouldn't charge too much either.

That pretty much sums up the way I feel/have been feeling. (HERE)

@ work they gave me one of the biggest jerks in the office to help out. He has already complained about me to the regional manager. Am I worried? Not really. Already gave my notice.

Paying for the wedding reception myself now. After three BLOWOUT fights with my mom. (I think we are at about 20 fights total since engagement! Apparently I know how to cut people in half. I'm a ninja and didn't even know it, so that's cool.) At least now that I am doing everything myself I already have the cake topper ordered, a contract on the reception place, invitations printed and almost all mailed out, and looking for a dress…


The dress. Good self-esteem booster. I wear a size 8 pant, and now a size 14 wedding dress. Yikes. Need to lose weight. The dress looked HORRIBLE. Don't they have wizards to make anyone look great on their wedding day? Let's hope. And please be cheap. I can't afford much else… HA.

Got a flu shot yesterday. Bad idea? Today I am dizzy, achy and tired. Maybe my body is under too much stress to fight off a tiny flu shot- please…. PLEASE fight off this flu shot and let's not get the flu. That would really suck.

**** Sorry blog readers. Hang in there. At some point there will be happy stories of going to AL for Trent's graduation, getting married, and adjusting to life in the South. The "UGH" period of life is almost over!

Chili Cook-Off Results

I know its not good blog etiquette to post twice in one day, but I have a great story!!

I just came in 1ST place in our office chili cook-off!!!! Wooohoo! (I won a $25 gas gift card.)

We had the cook-off to raise money for the breast cancer research fund "Race for the Cure". There hadn't been an entry yet in the "other" category, so I was told to make some- and since I didn't have a slow cooker, my co-worker Melinda bought me one! My first wedding present- a crock-pot. Yeah! (I made white chicken chili- double on the jalapeƱos.)

And then I got a rather "fun" email in response to the cook-off results from a little British man I make fun of at work:

"Congratulations, and contrary to the opinions of some, you are clearly more than just the rude comments and pretty face - apparently a cook too. If you can sew and maintain a plastic smile in a group of Army wives bitching about their husbands last career report, you are going to excel at Military Wife School."

Awww. Thanks Gary. You just wait...
