First of all, I have an announcement to make.
I occasionally get emails for TV stuff and I got one the other day from a producer looking to cast a reality show where at least one of the ex-spouses are in another significant relationship and they all get along well. My understanding is that they want to show positive co-parenting in a amicable happy situation. There will be compensation she said. If Stanley could mumble more than “Okay or Yup” and I wasn’t fat, I would do it myself. God knows I need the money. If anyone is interested, I have the info and if you shoot me an email, I will forward it to you.
Otherwise, I have been as busy as shit but have not much to show for it. I am as anxious as hell and my left eye is twitching. People think I’m winking at them. Nope. I hate people.
I’ve been looking for other, read cheaper venues for this wedding reception in 4 months. We have one place reserved but if I can find a cheaper place, I’m not married to it. As far as wedding planning, I’ve called all over town looking for alternatives. Al was here this past weekend and we had a margarita planning summit and made a few more plans. I got the little girl’s dresses on order, so that is done.
3 different short styles all in Oasis color (pictured).
The margarita helped as always and we made a plan for the wedding. It will be on Thursday, June 11, around noonish at a small church, family only, followed by lunch at a nice restaurant. Then people can go on their merry way. Friday, I am going to bask in the glow of my hot new husband and get ready for the reception with food and dancing for friends and more family on Saturday, 6/13.
I did score a caterer yesterday. I got Al’s ring yesterday. So, it is all coming along!
Today I am extra worried and need all positive thoughts people can muster.
Al is talking to his boss today about the possibility of working remotely, so I’m nervous about that. If he can’t make that work then he will have to look for a job and that is going to SUCK. That will delay his move since he can’t move without a job. I am on my last legs with this stupid long distance relationship. I am SICK of being in a relationship with my phone. I get busy and forget to text him back right away, I am sick of having to talk on the phone and remember to tell him all of this stuff that he would know if he was physically present in my life. Just the little day to day shit that you share if you are in close proximity has to all be communicated with effort. I’m sick of the effort. Love the man though, so I can do it!
In other news, I’m still broke so still driving my messed up car with the accordian trunk. Everywhere I go people ask me what I did. I’ve started saying a piano fell on it. It looks like it anyway. I’m lucky it missed my head.
I did my taxes the other night and that was also disappointing. I have to spend any refund on getting the pool liner fixed because we have been told that we shouldn’t have the house appraised for refinance and getting Stanley off the mortgage until the pool is fixed. It looks like there won’t be much. Aargh. Rethinking the reality show. Maybe Stanley can do it….
I saw an article the other day about a lady who was 50, fat and on a stripper pole.
Maybe could work. Thoughts?
