Garden of Eden

My garden is nothing like that. However it's getting there. My great aunt Betty inherited a huge perennial garden when they moved to their new house. She and John are in their upper 80's and don't want to to deal with it. They are giving it away to whomever will come dig it up. I got a trunk full! I don't even know what some of it is. I got a couple of different ground covers, some purple stuff, sunflower/daisy stuff in dark reds and yellow, what i think is coreopsis, yellow siberian iris, day lillies, and hostas. It took 4.5 hours but I got it all in the ground. If we weren't going to MN tonite, I'd go and get more. It will have to wait until the weekend though.

I got my front flower bed and the bed by the house free of grass. I should mulch it now, but I ran out of energy.

We're supposed to close on our house today. Everything is f***ed up though. The landlord is a jerk, the realtor is an idiot/jerk, and Kurt's at work. Now there is some handyman here to take out the upstairs cupboards and sink. I'm filthy from the gardening, but I'm uncomfortable taking a shower with him in the house. All the banging upstairs is making Lewis crazy. It's a great day.

A walk down the aisle

We had a wonderful wedding and honeymoon. It was laid back and relaxed. The food was good, the friends were good, the cake was good. It was good all around. I don't have any pictures to post, but I'm sure I will eventually.

We've just been too busy trying to catch up from being gone to do anything.

28 days

28 days left til my center closes. Do I hear an "Amen"? I had to write up one of my friends today. It was lovely. Another teamlead had to sit in and was unsupportive. The rep thinks it's funny and the other TL thinks it's dumb. I swear I have no idea why people are so stupid and lack integrity. It irritates me to no end.

Our Mother is SO proud!

My mom has two very talented daughters.

Thursday Marn called to tell me she was locked out of her house.

Moments later, as i heard the kitchen door thunk shut, I realized my keys were on the counter and I, too, was locked out.

Yet, Mom tells the people she meets how smart and wonderful we are!

Ah, nothing beats a mother's love.

In Love

I am IN LOVE with bullet points on the computer! They make TO DO lists so much better! Kurt and I have a ton of things to do before I leave for DSM this afternoon! See you all tomorrow. Again, since I forgot...
  • Wedding @ 6:00 pm


  • Heather Family pictures @ 4:30
  • Kurt Family pictures @ 5:00

A week from today

The wedding is a week from today.

I'm a little stressed.

I just drank half a bottle of wine, took my math test and did one chapter of homework.

Kurt is C R A B B Y!!

We've been watching CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM on netflix. Love 'em both.

We've got a way busy week ahead of us.

It appears I'm having a bachelorette party saturday night since I'm staying in DSM that night. The Wonder Twin will be there and so will Rikki and her girlfriend. So if you want to go out call me! I DETEST that bachelorette BS stuff though so don't even think about it. I WILL leave!
