I would assume most of you who actually read my blog, know
I have been working what I thought would be a great way to
have more time with my fiance and friends, turned out to
just be a disaster for myself and my mind and body and sleep.
I am not referring to some recent addiction to drugs.. Even
WORSE.. I have been on 6 months of over night shifts.
Going to work at 930 pm and getting off at 6am has not been
my best friend. I sleep - but never all that great and the
weekends when I am off I drag my feet the whole time trying
to adjust my body enough to peel myself out of my most
comfortable bed for church when my body knows full well I
should be sleeping soundly. I'm not sure if I have learned
anything new in Sunday School the past while and I think the
children in Primary wondered why I was not my overly
happy self to be with them teaching Sharing Time... (No
worries I was still very much perky and happy to spend my
time with them).

All this to say that tonight (and I suppose there are benefits
like times when it is not busy and I can add a blog entry)
Is my last over night. I was extremely excited I had to share
my excitement... SO, seeing how I love Ice-cream. I decided
what better way to celebrate than picking up a Dairy Queen
Ice cream cake?

I will sadly admit mine did not have a TNMT on it..
Instead it was full of pretty lavender flowers.
My co-workers were more than happy to share in my cake
and my enthusiasum for my finaly night.
I have had fun working with the over night crews who for
the most part pick this schedule because it works for them.
I however, miss my day friends.
So next week I am off to Utah for a quick visit to my
family and to be a part of my dear friend Paul's wedding
to his beautiful bride to be Lindsey... then back to work
during the day time hours..
So not only will I be super happy to be on a normal
schedule.. I think my fiance (I KNOW) he will be more
than happy... My Cat - though he sleeps all the time anyway.
My running partner and Matron of Honour Stephanie -
I've been good the past while going at 6am for a runs at
the nature park, but it will be so much nicer to do so when
I'm rested and not dreaming of sleep...
My Sunday school teacher so I might be more attentive..
God, because lets face it my prayers after my over night
shifts ended many times with me waking up with a kink in
my neck asleep...
My neighbours, because I might be motivated more to
dig the weeds out of my flowers and finally getting around to
painting my front door..
Last but not least, my stomach.. Its been confused for 6
months now when it is suppose to be hungry and when it is
To all of you who work the "graveyard" shift and do not wish
to.. My deepest Sympathy
To all of you who enjoy working the shift - You are nuts..

80 Days to Go

So I thought I was doing really well on planning the wedding
and thinking I was taking care of a lot of things...
THEN I went onto my "theknot" website where I had been
updating the guest list and there was an alert of 80 days to
go and a check list of things I should have already finished or
been working on. I was behind (according to them) on 88
things... That seemed like a lot of things to be behind on when
I thought Adam and I were on top of things...
Do brides really try to figure out what they are doing with their
hair three months before???
Has another out there ever purchased Wedding insurance?
What would that be for???? In a severe case of cold feet, does
one of us get all our money back we put into the wedding???

So either I am doing a really bad job at planning this wedding
or a really great job because I don't feel stressed about anything.
I am a few unanswered questions in my head..
For instance how the music is going to be dealt with at the
reception for the dance.... Do we hire a full on DJ or do we just
have a fantastic play list going on the lap top???
Just what specific types of Candy am I going to have at the
candy bar (so those of you coming ((and even if you are not
and have a fun suggestion...)) if you have a favourite you
might want to give me your reasons behind why I should
pick your favourite candy)
I have questions about what the third Thai dish option will be..
We know for sure Pad Thai, Matsuman Curry and we have
not decided on the third, we are thinking Mango Chicken...
We can't seem to make up our mind about what type of cake
to have....

SO maybe I'm not as far ahead as I thought I was...
