Merry Christmas

Just a quick note.

Things have been incredibly stressful and …. just stressful.

Greg’s Grandma (his Mom’s Mom) passed away yesterday. Greg and I are paying for his Mom’s plane ticket out to Colorado to attend the funeral. She leaves tomorrow evening. Since we bought her ticket, we have to print the boarding pass and give it to her tonight (something about the credit card being in our name and not hers…) well, Greg and I don’t have a printer, nor does his Mom. And, Greg doesn’t have the key to get in his office to print the pass. Oh, and to add to the stress the boarding pass cant be printed until 6:30pm tonight or later.

So, as I type Greg is on his way to Best Buy for the second time today to buy a printer for us. Yep, we bought a printer just to print a boarding pass.

Our plan for the holiday is to stop by his Mom’s tonight (and Mimi is with my Mom) to give her the boarding pass and exchange gifts (I think) and then we’re going to head down to my Mom’s. Unfortunately, we won’t be arriving at my Mom’s until 10pm or so.

So, right now I have clothes in the washer and dryer and I’ve started some cleaning. I should be wrapping presents since we don’t have a single item wrapped, but I will get to that in a minute.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and I will try to post an update within the next 4 days.

Good Friday

Today was a very good day!

I am 100% caught up with the correspondence. That is a relief!

Greg and I received something amazing that has alleviated all financial stress for the upcoming cruise, holidays, birthdays, and wedding. It’s a new credit card with a $5k limit. Yes, putting everything on the credit card isn’t the greatest idea; but it has a very low APR and we plan on transferring balances from our higher APR cards (and closing them out) onto the low APR in hopes of saving on payments and paying off debt sooner. Our plan of action is using the new credit card for the cruise (mainly) – we’re happy that we’re going to be able to really enjoy ourselves without worrying about going over our budget (which was going to be about $300 – including everything; excursions, tips, specialty restaurants, etc). After the cruise, we’re going to use our tax refund to pay off (or down) the credit card (which would also have the transferred balances from the higher APR cards). Also, Greg and I are planning out our paychecks and what we’re going to pay leading up to the cruise. If our calculations are correct, by the time we leave (which will also be a payday), we will have one whole check (well, 2 if you’re counting our individual employees) where we won’t have anything to pay (as everything for that month will already be paid for)! So, the money from the “free” paycheck is going to be our on-board credit (we’re going to put cash, about $300, on the account), anything we use over the initial deposit will go onto the new credit card. On paper, it looks like a good idea. We’ve given this a lot of though, let’s just hope it all works out.

Amelia has a cold. She’s hardly eating anything and what she does eat is cold; she will not eat anything warm (like oatmeal). Weird, but at least she does eat.

I can’t wait to go shopping. I am so looking forward to shopping, which is weird. But, what I am looking forward to is shopping for Greg’s new wardrobe! I love shopping for men’s clothes; I don’t know why because I hate shopping for myself.

Greg has started to hint about my Christmas¬† and Birthday gifts! As if the cruise isn’t enough to be excited about, he’s adding this! I don’t know how he could top last Christmas, after all he bought me my lovely lap top, in my favorite color, AND asked me to marry him!

I think I’ve been random enough on my good Friday.

Random-ania

Since buying the Wii Fit, I’ve “exercised” every day/night (starting on Sunday). W00t!

Greg received his wedding shirt in the mail today! The shirt looks nice; I am liking the pale yellow. The only concern is that the shirt is too pale and kinda blends into the color of his pants; he wants a little more “pop”. I told him to wait until we can see what the outfit looks like in the sunlight.

So, with Greg’s shirt in the closet – we pretty much have everything we need for the wedding! Only two more items are on their way (well, sorta): my bouquet and photo charm. Both have been ordered – I am having the photo charm mailed to my ‘florist’ so she can add it to the bouquet; rather than me trying to figure out how to add it.¬† I can’t wait to see what my bouquet looks like. I swear I feel more excited about the bouquet than I do my wedding dress!

There are still a few things I’m debating about, for the wedding. The one thing being if I want a veil or a flower for my hair. I’ve researched all the options out there (on Etsy and eBay) and I still don’t know.

Oh, my brother surprised me the other week by telling me he and a few friends have decided to join Greg and me on the cruise! I’m excited that my brother is going to join us; he deserves this vacation. He’s worked so hard over the last three years and hes recently been promoted. It’s time for him to celebrate! I’ve informed Daniel of the increase in guests (since we’re planning on staying with him before the cruise) and he’s uber excited and is planning on a party! I can’t wait – January can’t get here soon enough!

On the work front, I think I received a promotion. I’m not exactly sure. My manager, who is a male… lacks communication and details (typical male behavior – as I’ve expressed to him). Yesterday afternoon, say around 3pm, he tells me to go sit with another co-worker to learn all her work, as today was her last day and I am to be taking over her duties. So, long story short, I received a crash course in correspondence (and all the nitty gritty details that is involved). Best yet, she left early today; so essentially I had to learn everything in a matter of 5 hours. Surprisingly, I got it (which, to my surprise, a lot of other people knew I was going to be assigned this task and felt that I was the best candidate for it – but no one bothered to inform me — until the last minute). Now, here is where the details are lacking: as of this morning, I am going to do this “part time”, meaning I am to train another co-worker so we can alternate (I work on correspondence for one month and then switch with her). I’m not too keen on this idea because… well, as they say… “too many hands in the pot…” Plus, the amount of detail that is needed for this position could cause confusion if two people are trading duties. So, later in the day the manager came over as I was sitting with the co-worker before she left and he had this goofy smile and I asked what the smile was about and he said nothing… bla bla bla… and I asked a few more details about the new duties and it sounded like the reason he wants me to do this part time is so that I can still earn my commissions. I informed him that the commissions are no where near what they were last year (as of yet, I’m lucky if I earn $100 a month in commissions, whereas last year I was bringing in between $1000-$1300 a month) and I would gladly give up my (lack of) commissions for mental sanity and health. So, we’ll see where this goes. I’m going to give it a week and then re-approach him about my opinion about sharing the responsibilities.

Halloween. It’s next week. I’ve decided to take Amelia down to my Grandma’s house for trick or treating and dinner. Unfortunately, Greg can’t get out of work due to his co-workers wife, Brooke, who might have her baby by then. As of today, Brooke is three days out from her due date – so, it’s any day now.

No plans this weekend. Kinda feels nice; considering all that we did last weekend. Oh, and have received so many compliments and praises from my co-workers about my pictures! Everyone seemed surprised when I told them that I took the picture (and did some slight editing). And, when my cousin saw the pictures from Bowles Farm… she even suggested that Greg and I be her wedding photographer (when ever her baby’s Daddy pops the question).

Speaking of photography, Greg and I (mostly Greg) have created our own website: CreativeClicksbyJGS.com. I came up with the name! The site is still in the very early creation – but please leave us some feedback! I’m suppose to create the header – haven’t even touched it.

Ketchup (and Mustard)

It’s after 11pm as I type and I am beat.

This week has really worn me down. I am still in (some) disbelief over the busyness at work; in the 2 years I’ve been there, it’s never, ever, been this busy, and the sudden increase in volume has taken everyone, managers, CEO, and President, aback! We were not prepared for this; staffing and mentally. I feel safe in saying that EVERYONE at work is worn out.

With that being said, I am SO looking forward to this three day weekend! And, it’s a busy weekend for us.

Saturday is Brooke’s baby shower that I completely forgot all about and, unfortunately, can not attend. Instead, Greg and I are going to be running a slew of errands and attacking the mountain of chores and laundry.

Sunday is Michele’s engagement cook-out/party. I still need to get the time from her…

On Monday, the day I am probably most excited about, we are having a mini-road trip to Pennsylvania! We’ve decided (because I somewhat insisted) to visit a state park in PA – to go somewhere different. Originally, I wanted to visit Philadelphia since I’ve never been (yes, I need to get out more). But, on Wednesday when we were talking about this, we went over our budget and determined we didn’t have the funds available (because we would spend a lot of money on food and we’re trying to cut back on our food spending habit) and decided to visit a park instead. So, we checked out PA’s Parks and decided to visit the Susquehannock State Park.

By Wednesday I was ready to run away and that is why I decided (read: insisted) that we (read: me) need to venture outside of Maryland – I felt the need to just get away from Maryland and all the stress related. So, that’s why we’re going to PA!

So, there is a logical explanation of why I was feeling like the world was crushing me while everyone was pulling at my limbs in all different directions: hormones. Stupid cycle started on Thursday morning – just like clock work. Emotionally, I am feel much better than I was yesterday (Berger Cookies could have helped – mmm… chocolate), thought not 100% back to my ‘normal’ self; I hope to reach that state tomorrow. It’s funny because I wasn’t even sure the cycle was going to start on Thursday since I didn’t have any ‘warning signs’; no mood swings, no lower back ache, no increase in appetite or weird cravings, I felt pretty good (aside from stressed). Well, until Wednesday night (at work when I was about to loose it) and then Thursday morning. Have I mentioned how much I dislike being on birth control?

I think I called Greg like 4 times at work today to see if the camera arrived (Dell has surprised us in the past), to which the answer was always: nope. We’re expecting the camera to arrive on Tuesday. Boo. I was hoping to break it in this weekend, especially at Susquehannonk Park. It was funny, last night Greg and I were talking about the new camera and our ‘rules’; he made me promise (which I technically haven’t) not to use the ‘auto-modes’, such as the “golfer mode” for action shots, or “moon and stars mode” for night shots, but to keep the camera on all manual all the time – like a real photographer. And, if I accepted his requirement, he had to accept mine: to allow me to take the pictures as I want to take them, meaning if I want to lay in the river to get a specific shot – then so be it. He can not ‘baby’ the camera. Either way, our lives are about the change with the addition of the new camera; I am more riskier, than Greg is, when it comes to capturing the picture that I envision.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned our photography blog: J&G Photography. Since Greg is placing some of his pictures up for sale (he’s received a few reviews, but no sales yet), I thought it would be a good idea for him to have a photography blog/site. Greg, of course, agreed and has taken over. Now, I just need to work on the watermark – not really liking the one he created.

I still haven’t looked for a wedding dress. Although, I think I am going to order a dress from PeriMart. I learned of the site from the message boards and checked them out – their prices are amazing. I’m not worried about the dress being a knock-off or if it has slight imperfections, as long as it fits and I look good in it – I’m happy. Plus, with the amount of money I am going to be spending on the dress – I’m probably getting what I paid for and that’s fine by me. Although, the person that shared the site said her dress was amazing, so who knows. Oh, and they ship for free.

The first wedding planning meeting, for Michele, went very well. I think. I don’t what we got out of the meeting other than the colors of the wedding party (clover and cream) and our first, of many I’m sure, dates to try on dresses. Michele tried to get me to try on wedding dresses with her, but I told her that this is her wedding and not to worry about me.

We also talked about having a girls night (which I guess is a bachorlette party) the night before her wedding. Apparently, Michele and D are leaving on a cruise, from Baltimore to the Bahamas, the morning after their wedding, so the night before the wedding, Michele and her girls (me, her sister, and Michele’s daughter) will spend the night at the hotel (suite) and the following morning, have our hair done and get ready. Oh, and the wedding is going to take place in DC.

Michele also talked about sending save-the-dates next month as most of D’s family is out of state. I offered a few websites and helping make the STD’s (gave her my picnik log in information since I have a premium account), and talking about her STD’s get me thinking about the wedding announcements that I get to make once we’re married (and then I started to go off into a day dream of sorts).

Have I mentioned how excited I am to be a part of Michele’s wedding?

Speaking of weddings, Greg band finally arrived! We picked it up over the weekend. I, personally, think it needs to be re-sized as it feels a little too big on his finger… and the fact that it slid off during testing. He’s in denial. I told him that he needs to make up his mind about the size before it’s too late.

I’m trying to think of anything else mention…

Oh, I am finally a Pro Flickr’er again, and I uploaded the pictures from the Inappropriate Haf’la we went to on Saturday. I really wish I wrote down the names of the performers since I don’t remember a think about them, other than the songs they performed to. Either way, the party was great. The sangria was amazing (and there is still some in the fridge. And, it’s mighty strong) and we, Greg and I, had an amazing time. We stayed until 10pm.

The following morning we left for the Renn Fest and had a good time. Pictures from the Renn Fest can be found on Flickr as well. I would do a picture post, but I’m feeling a bit on the lazy side. That, and it’s 12:17am and I should go to bed.

And, on the note… Good night!

Just a Quickie

  • Work = Stressful! They are now training me on a whole new program for a whole new territory and I am still expected to do EVERYTHING else they’ve thrown at me. Umm…, yeah… I’ve been coming into work an hour early every day this week to get a head start on the work I didn’t finish the night before only to be thrown into a three day training that takes up five and a half hours of my nine hour work day (including the extra hour of coming in and NOT including the lunch hour that I actually work through). I’m going to have to have a talk with a certain someone soon. But, the OT is great!
  • Greg took the day off today. And, guess what he did…. HE CLEANED THE WHOLE CONDO!! Yes, he actually cleaned, dusted, vacuumed, did all the laundry and thew all the trash away. He also went through the closets and threw away the items that we no long need or use. He was pretty busy today. We’re not completely done with the ‘Condo Purge of 2008’ but that’s what Saturday is for.
  • The Dark Knight is fucking awesome! We saw it last night with a group of co-workers and LOVED IT. My only complaint would be Christian Bale as Batman (only); I could not stand the way he talked. When he was playing the Bruce Wayne character, it was all good (kinda kinky, in a sense, because I had watched American Psycho a few weeks ago and was thinking of that character and the Bruce Wayne character… but that’s me). Personally, my favorite Batman was played by Val Kilmer (followed by Michael Keaton). Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker is… indescribable. He was beyond perfect. I loved the Jack Nicholson Joker too, and I fell in-love with the Joker because of Jack Nicholson’s performance (and I just loved the character.period.) and how the voice fit the personality “Where does he get those wonderful toys?” (one of my favorite lines in the movie)… but Heath’s performance was beyond Jack Nicholson’s. Really, I can’t describe how good this movie is. I told Greg earlier tonight that I want to go see it again, and that the Dark Knight was better than Transformers… Greg agreed with me.
  • So looking forward to going to the beach next week. We were looking at the weather forecast and it’s looking like we’re going to have cloudy days… but that’s fine with me.
  • My Mom and step-dad took Amelia to the National Zoo today and she had a blast! I can’t wait to see the pictures. It’s kind of weird to think that when Greg and I went I was pregnant with her… so, in an odd sense, she’s been there twice.
  • THANK GOODNESS TOMORROW IS FRIDAY
  • Going to a family reunion on Sunday. Kind of wish I didn’t commit to going; I’d rather have a whole weekend to myself.
  • My best-est friend, Michele, just got engaged! I’m so excited for her
  • Starting to get scared about my dental appointment on Monday
  • Greg and I had a pretty deep conversation last night about depression (and how is could, depending on the type of depression, lead to suicide) and marriage (but not marriage and depression combined). It all started as we were talking about Heath Ledger and his death. I felt there could have been a possibility of suicide and mixing the medications he took was his means of death – I’m not saying that is what he did, as in his death was intentional (ie suicide), but it wouldn’t surprise me if it was. Either way, his death could have been a 50/50 of accidental and intentional, and we’ll never know. I commented to Greg that suicide is more common than we are probably aware (in the movie/acting industry – as well as everyday people) and he doubted me! He doesn’t think/feel suicide is as big as I view it to be. I know someone (in my immediate family) that tried to commit suicide and he failed. His life hasn’t improved much over the last 10-15 years – due to his actions of pretty much alienating himself from his family and not seeking help for his alcoholism (and I could go on), so I could agree that my opinion about suicide is biased, but still… to think that suicide is not a frequent, or common, ‘thing’ blows me away.
  • TOMORROW IS FRIDAY!
  • Yeah, this was suppose to be a ‘quickie’… but it ended up being a little longer than I had intended to be..
  • Time for bed!

Busy Bee

Work has been kicking my ass this week. Yesterday I stayed until 8pm! I was going to stay again tonight but I had one of the worst days in a while and was pretty much “fuck this! I’m not staying any longer than need be”

I believe that every women I spoke with today had PMS. And, I was on the verge of loosing it and screaming a those women and telling them to “Shut the fuck UP and let me finish my sentience!!” because NO ONE would let me finish what I was trying to say because they were too busy screaming at the top of their lungs (into the phone) and cursing me out. I have never, in my life, been called a bitch so many times as I have today (or in general for that matter). It was a bad day for me.

To add to that, I had to make an appointment with the dentist because the tooth that I broke earlier this month is starting to act up. I have never had problems with my teeth prior to getting pregnant, but I’ve learned that when a women is pregnant, the baby ‘takes’ all the calcium from the mother’s body and usually the teeth are the ones most effected. Sure seems to be true for me. Needless to say, I’m petrified of this visit given my last two experiences with the dentist; so much so that I’ve requested light sedation and the dentist prescribed something for me to take before the appointment… I can’t remember the name of the drug, but whatever.. I’ll take it.

Also, on the list today, I began my search for a Ob/Gyn because… I have even MORE reasons to be paranoid about being (possibly) pregnant. I know, I am such a procrastinator (and that’s all I’m going to admit to), but these new ‘symptoms’ are starting to push me. What are they? Well, for the last week and a half I’ve had severe nausea in the afternoon, usually within a half hour to an hour after eating lunch; for the past week and a half my boobs (both of them this time) have been sore and ‘feel’ different – like… fuller and they look fuller to me (Greg says he doesn’t see any difference); and the sinker is when I stand up quickly I get this sharp-ish pulling pain in my lower abdomen (more in the hip/pelvic area) and the last time I felt those was the Summer of 2006 (when I was preggers and didn’t know), and when I mentioned this to my old Ob/Gyn (because I made an appointment due to the sore boob for nearly a month – and it was time for my annual), he said it was probably due to a shift of my intestines (did loose nearly 40lbs in 5 months) brought on by my sudden movement. And, to me that made sense. Yeah… not believing it this time. So, it’s time for me to suck it up and find out once and for all.

I told Greg all of this earlier tonight (after we had sex… talk about a ‘just after’ mood killer) to gage his feelings about ‘what could be’, and … he’s cool with it (sorta). He did say that he was going to have a vasectomy once Baby #2 is born (so I don’t have to remain on birth control – and he knows how much I hate being on b/c). Then, he joked that he must have some mighty sperm or something – and I replied with something along the lines of “yeah.. and my body can resist the powers of b/c”… meh, at least he was light hearted about it. Which, I guess could be because one of his best friends, Tim and Brooke, are going to have a baby girl this fall and another co-worker of his (the one that invited us to their wedding in NY this past May) just found out she’s pregnant and due in February 2009 (she did the math and realized she got pregnant on her wedding night!); so maybe he’s getting the ‘baby bug’ or something (like he would ever admit to that… LOL).

My step-dad’s eBay sales are exceeding my expectations! He’s actually got nearly $2000 worth of bids on the items I listed for him! I still have one more to list, but I need to call him first… something I’ve been meaning to do for the last two nights.

The UPS Guy is leaving love notes again. I’ve been waiting for my Target order all week and tonight was the second night that s/he left ANOTHER stupid sticky note on the door – how anal are these people about the signature and name? Geez!

This weekend we are heading down to Mom’s and we’re going to leave Amelia with her since the babysitter is going to the Bahama’s until the 30th (babysitters daughter is in a dance competition or something). I have to finish packing Amelia clothes and toys and make sure I send all the little odds and ends down (baby Tylenol; enough diapers; de-tangler spray, etc). I’m already missing Amelia and she hasn’t left yet. These last few weeks have been … jaw dropping with Amelia’s rapid development; her verbal skills are better than those who are two or older, she’s actually begun counting objects (such as her fingers, Cheerios, etc)… it’s all so… freaky! I’m seriously blown away; yet I want more! It’s hard to explain, at least for me.

Greg and I are going to our first O’s game this Sunday. The O’s are having a “We Win, You Win 2” promotion, which is “…all fans in attendance at the 1:35 p.m. game on Sunday, July 20 against the Detroit Tigers will receive two complimentary tickets in the same seating category to any future non-prime game, if the Orioles win.” and we’re going to buy tickets in the “all you can eat” seats!

Next Wednesday night a group of us are meeting at a local restaurant for dinner and then we’re going to see the new Batman movie.

And, the last week of July we are going to Ocean City! Amelia’s first beach trip!!! I can’t wait. It’s been ages (ok, May 2005) since I swam in the Atlantic Ocean. This past Monday I bought a new bathing suit from Sears and I’ve pretty excited. Greg reserved a nice hotel room right on the Boardwalk!

We’ve got a pretty busy social calander for the remainder of the month, and I couldn’t be happier!!
