  1. Just learned that the bass player of our favorite local band died suddenly. He was maybe 30 years old. If it weren't for his band, me and my fiance never would have met or fallen in love. I am SO sad. I'm in shock -- we all are. The wake is Monday and the whole family of friends will be there. This is unbelievably sad. We even talked with him about playing at our wedding party.

    @Ratvan thank you very much. I just received the saddest news. A band member from our favorite local band just passed away suddenly. He was maybe 30 years old. If it weren't for his band, me and my fiance would never have met or fallen in love. We even talked with him about playing at our wedding party. OMG. I am SO SAD.

    Confused. Getting a passport is not an easy process! I keep getting different answers about whether I can use my expired passport as proof of citizenship. I ordered a birth certificate which won't arrive 'til the end of Feb. We're going to have to pay extra to expedite the passports -- a total cost of $420. Expensive! We also need to buy our wedding rings. We're going ring shopping today before the big snow storm. Aside from dealing with the details, I am SO excited! OMG. I cannot wait to get to St Lucia. It cannot come soon enough, but it's still 3 plus months away. Now I just need to decide on a wedding dress. I have to lose at least 10 lbs before the wedding, and am dieting. I haven't had to diet since I was 16! LOL.
  4. I can’t make up my mind! I’m browsing but I already own a near perfect dress for a beach wedding. All traditional styles don’t suit me. I found a few online I fell in love with, but I can’t buy it online, even with it custom made, can I?? I’m just in a dilemma and am not sure what I want! Here's the headpiece I may wear! And the dress!

    Awwwwww. I no longer work from home so I cannot be here that much anymore. My new job (six months ago) changed everything. I can't even go on Facebook during the work day. LOL. My work computer faces the whole community and they can see everything I do... grrrrrr..... I miss working from home!

    Hmm... I have to be completely self dependent as well. I mean, I pay my own rent and all my expenses & I have to work full time and support myself fully -- I don't have anyone supporting me financially. I don't see myself as more blessed than anyone... yes, I have a supportive family and friends, and I realize that many may not have the same. So yes, I am blessed in those ways, you are correct. I guess I feel I am not any more blessed, just we are all unique with our own unique problems. I don't talk about certain problems I struggle with because they're too private.

    Thanks Sober! I don’t feel that way most the time but I can say that determination is key to success and to getting what you want and need. It’s the only way I’ve been successful at anything is through hard work. It’s never been easy.

    WOW -- what a work week. I worry SO much about my success at work and am constantly in fear that I am not doing a good enough job. But everything that's happened says the exact opposite -- I got an achievement award, I've been complimented by my boss, I've been put in charge of training a new junior employee on the most critical aspect of our job, AND to boot, they just told me I am now in charge of our highest paying client. And that the CEO and Dir. of Operations are both excited that I am on this particular client account. I think it's my perfectionist side of me that's in the way. I am not satisfied until I see top results for my clients, and achieving those is a tough climb sometimes -- it takes constant analysis and tweaking of web copy, which I constantly do. My field sort of lends to perfectionism. If you want a #1 ranking on Google, you have to work hard for it, and sometimes it doesn't come easily. So I tweak tweak tweak, analyze analyze analyze, then more tweaking until I get it just right. UGH. Maybe I am perfect for this field because I am so determined and perfectionistic, but my boss tells me I worry far too much. Anyways, it's Sat, a day off, and I'm thinking about my work! UGH. LOL.

    I am crying right now actually. One of my closest college girlfriends called to tell me she will be in town (from CA) at the end of Jan and she wants to go wedding dress shopping with me. And I hadn't even thought of it since I already own a good dress to wear for the wedding, but when I walked by a dress shop the other day I thought maybe I should comparison shop. Then it hit me. I am used to doing most things on my own, and I was SO touched that she wanted to join me to go dress shopping, so I started crying just now. I am very happy to be eloping and I am very happy with our plans just as they are, I was just so touched and realized that other people who care about me want to be a part of my happiness. How amazing. Guess I am used to being on my own. I am not so used to people caring about me. I am used to being abused. And I am used to the opposite.

    Just got a flat tire on my new car. It's raining, I'm hungry (I'm dieting) and dinner is delayed. I am in sort of a rotten mood at the moment. It will pass. I just want bed.
