Victory is mine!

I finally finished the book Twilight!
Gah! It took me forever with working all these weird hours. I'm lucky to get enough time to take a crap or shower. Which reminds me, I need to shower before I go to bed.
Everyone is doing good on the home front. I'm getting married in LESS THAN A WEEK! Omgah, I'm so nervous. I'm super excited though. Oh gawd, I just sounded like I was 17. *Goes out back and shots myself in the head*
Anyway, this new job is really kicking my ass. I probably run around like 10 miles a day running around the store all day long! And our store is still small! We don't turn to a supercenter until October, but the guys are working on the front of the building right now. I don't know how they do it all while it's snowing hardcore non-stop for 2 days straight. We seriously have like a foot of snow already and 6 inches of it is on the streets! I can't wait for summer to get here and winter JUST started. Ugh!
Well, I'm going to bed. Another early day at work tomorrow.
Yay *Please note there is so much sarcasm in that "yay"*

Fire at work

So I was at work today and all of a sudden the fire alarm went off. Everyone's just staring at each other like they don't know what the hell is going on. My customer left the line freaking out. The rest of the managers came by and started telling us that it wasn't a fake drill...we actually had a fire!
Everyone just starts running for the doors and stands outside of them. Duh! Run the hell away. I start yelling at people to move across to the parking lot and they look at me like I'm dumb. Luckily I had my phone on me to capture the stupidity...

This is everyone looking around like they don't know what to do...
Fire trucks coming!
More people dumbfounded...and another truck

2 fire trucks and more crowd.Fire truck!
So needless to say, today was really interesting. It amazes me still how dumb people can be. Oh, and I have no idea what started the probably was a drill after all LoL. This is why I hate working Black Fridays!!!

P.S. I was at the post office a few weeks ago and noticed what my truck looked like in the window. It is funny. Enjoy =]

Free Range Kids?

So I was channel surfing earlier and I came across the Dr. Phil show. It was about Extreme Moms. The first lady that was on the show freaked me out! She allowed her 9 year old son to travel around NYC by himself. There was a specific route he had to take and within a 1 mile radius, there were 380 something sexual predators that lived on those streets. I was shocked! I can understand not wanting to smother your kids and letting them having their independence, but when is going too far?

To be thankful

Well Thanksgiving is tomorrow and it got me thinking of everything I'm thankful for.

I'm thankful to be living after health complications.
I'm thankful for meeting Aaron. He has changed my whole outlook on life. I never thought I would be able to love again after my last ex, but he has changed that for me.
I'm thankful to Aaron's family. They opened their arms up to me from Day 1 and have treated me just like their own.
I'm thankful to have my family still around me.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday and remember what you can give thanks for!

Beginning to understand the term Monster-in-law...

So, as I've mentioned before, Aaron and I are getting married on December 5th. That's less than 2 weeks away!! I'm so excited. Even though we're having a civil ceremony, it doesn't matter to me. We are going to have a formal setting next year on our 1 year anniversary because we'll have some money then.

Well usually in a civil ceremony at a courthouse, you have 2 people there. Usually the witnesses. Well Aaron's mom keeps insisting on inviting the whole freaking family and I'm getting pissed!! She's telling me that I have to invite all of Aaron's family including his maternal and paternal grandparents. I don't want that! Aaron and I both agreed on just the 2 witnesses. At most, adding a couple more people, but no more than 5. I tried talking to Aaron's mother about this, but she keeps saying how the grandparents will be angry if they aren't invited. Then the aunts and uncles that Aaron NEVER TALKS TO! will be angry or something. Screw that! Am I being unresonable? This is just something that him and I want to do privately. Nothing fancy until next year. If that wasn't bad, you should have been there for the convo about having the formal ceremony of renewal of the vows...

So I was looking at venues to have it and Aaron's mother came down and asked what I was doing. I want a wedding somewhere else other than Anchorage. I have been to every corner of this town and I'm sick of it! So I want to have something out of town and BEAUTIFUL. So I was looking at the rental rates for Aleyeska Ski Resort. Our families both ski so I thought it would be fun. Well Aaron's mother just totally flipped on me! Telling me that it was the worst thing to ever do to have everyone drive 40 miles to go to a wedding. Ugh I'm so sick and tired of it all. I'm beginning to think I'll just let her plan the whole thing so she can have a "second wedding"....Oh, and have every Tom, Dick, Harry, and Jane at the courthouse with us too.

Hormones, cramping, and a new job!

Bleh, so I'm ragging for the first time since the miscarriage and it sucks. I forgot what it felt like. I hate being a woman sometimes. The cramping is killing me and I'm so hormonal. Worse than when I was pregnant! I was crying earlier over something I heard on the TV that made me angry. Ugh.

On a lighter note, 2 more weeks until Aaron and I are getting married. I'm so excited! We decided we are going to have a civil ceremony with just immediate family and the grandparents on Aaron's side. I just wanted a few people there, but instead of arguing with Aaron's mom about it, I just agreed to have the grandparents there as well. Next year on our one year anniversary, we're going to have a renewal of vows that's really formal like a wedding. We'll be able to afford it then because he'll be out of school and be working. Also, I got a job the other day so I'll be able to save for that as well. I start working next week. Yay! I've been sick and tired of being couped up in this house with Aaron's mom all the time. Can you say insane?

I've been reading the book Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. IT'S SO FREAKING AWESOME! Never been into that kind of reading, but once I started, I was unable to put it down. The movie comes out on Friday, but I'll go see it next week when there aren't so many people going. I hate going to a new movie because all the people jammed in a little room watching a get's freaking hot. Especially in the wintertime with the heater on and everyone breathing digusting popcorn breath.

Went back to church last Sunday. I haven't been there since I became pregnant. Everyone remembered me and was happy to have me come back. Only reason I went was because I'm a memeber and there was an annual business meeting that all members had to attend. I guess I'll go back this Sunday. This one really nice lady named Teresa came over and prayed for me. She had heard about the loss of the baby and was really happy that Aaron and I came back. I forgot how peaceful I felt after going to church. I just wish I had more time to spend in the church. Aaron and I wanted to take the Engaged/Newlywed class that one of the pastors leads, but it's only on Wednesday nights, but Aaron has school Wednesday nights. Hopefully she will answer my email about an alternative that we can do on Fridays or on the weekends.

Meh, I'm going to go back to reading Twilight. I only have about 6 more chapters to finish before I can start on the next book. I can't wait!

Sorry I haven't updated in awhile, but things have been busy.

I had a doctor's appt and I'm healed from everything. The doctor did a really good job and there's no scarring in my uterus from the D&C. She would like to see us become pregnant again soon, but I don't know if I'm ready for that. It was pretty traumatic to lose Katelynn being 6 months pregnant. I don't know. We'll see.

Well, we came up with a date. Aaron and I are getting married on December 5th. We're going to have a civil ceremony right now, and we'll renew our wedding vows next December 5th on our anniversary and have it more formal. With him being in school, we really don't have a lot of money for a formal wedding, but we want to get married now. Our families are happy about it, but other people have been giving us crap about it, but we've let it all roll off our back. We know what we want, and that's all that matters.

Isn't my ring purdy??
