Couldn’t sleep again last night. I remember thinking before going to bed that maybe I ought to take an Axert “just in case,” but I’m running low already and didn’t want to waste it if I didn’t have a headache. Considering the high cost of the last prescription, and it’s lasted just over a week and a half, I can quickly see this getting expensive REAL quick! I’ve already put in another call to my doctor’s office to see if there’s another pain med I can switch to. The Axert works well, when it works … but the real temple splitters require two, and if I take two, I’m out for the count — can’t have that happen if I’m working. I’m hesitant to wonder to what I’d be switched. Several people I know who have migraines are on more “common” pain meds like loritab, but I don’t like taking those because I get zombie-like and taking too much puts me to sleep.
*shrug* who knows …
This weekend was *supposed* to be my weekend off but I was roped into helping Jim with a project for his (my former) employer. I’m unhappy to be spending my off-days this way, but we could use the money. On the other hand, I’ve been on the go every weekend for the last 4 months straight — I’m fucking tired!
Oh well, I guess I’ll deal …
We worked the better part of yesterday then got out for a bit to run a few errands. We played around in CostCo … they had some Nintendo DS Lite bundles on sale (Jessie wants one, and will probably get it for Christmas) along with a handful of Wii bundles. They had a TON of back to school stuff, including a complete Lisa Frank kit that Jim and I picked up for Jessie’s birthday next week. They also had very nice RC helicopters that I so wanted to play with! :D
We got in last night and it was back to business. I finished up pretty late, read a few emails, then headed to bed. Speaking of which …
We were supposed to start mailing invitations this week, but that may be put off a week. I have a few relatives and friends for whom we have no mailing address and aren’t returning phone calls, emails, etc. So, if you know you are one of these people, and you have a voicemail, email, or whatever kind of message, get off your duff and answer me if you want your bloody invitation!
Can you tell I’m pretty close to another Bridezilla moment?
We’ve recently learned that Jim’s brother has received orders to ship out to Afghanistan. It sucks because he has three very small kids at home who miss and need him very much. It sucks because he’ll miss our wedding. It sucks because his wife and kids moved in with Jim’s mother and now I need a new place to get ready the morning of the wedding.
Yes, that last one is very selfish … and as much as I love his family dearly, his kids aren’t the best behaved and that morning I will be the biggest bundle of nerves you’ve ever seen and all it will take is just ~one~ of those little sweeties getting on my nerves for me to snap and just lose it altogether, so I’ve decided not to put myself (or them!) in that position. What sucks is that I don’t know of any place big enough for myself and my entourage to gather to help me get ready that’s close enough to my place and/or the Gardens, so this is another setback I didn’t need. Oh well, shit happens. I’ll deal.
At least everything else is turning out ok so far. I have a pretty good idea how the favors are going to be setup, though I didn’t get to use the boxes that Jen gave me because they were a bit small, and I wanted to include more goodies for our guests. I found a vendor who had larger boxes for a decent price so after payday, I’m stacking up on favor supplies! :)
I think Jim thinks I’m spending too much time and money on the reception decorations and plans, but I have a great idea and think I can pull it off using some very authentic items to go with our theme. (too bad the food won’t be authentic, *sigh*)
Oh well, you work with what you got, right? And considering that we are paying for this ourselves, I think we are doing ok … anyone who thinks otherwise can kiss the fattest part of my ass.
