just bought this.

Found it for under five dollars - how could I resist?

time flies when you sleep till noon.

Time is flying somehow (the days seem so long) and the wedding is getting closer and closer. However, things just got a bit better as today I was offered a job at Target (pending my drug test which I will pass with flying colors!) I'll be on the Sales Floor, basically making things look pretty, which I do anyway! I'll also cashier when times are busy. It's just seasonal- but - if I am part of the 'cream of the crop' they may ask me to stay on. However, this is really a good thing being Seasonal since at the end of the season I'm getting married (!!!!) and will need time off. Plus, Target is one of my favorite stores ever!

Speaking of this whole wedding shabang, man is it hard when you are a)not in the city where it will be held. b)not with any of your bridesmaids for emotional support or to bounce random thoughts off of c)getting harder and harder to make money come from nowhere. But - it IS coming along. The days are getting closer and most things are coming together (whew!). In five sleeps Darcy is coming through town so at least I will have that time to gush, and gab, and be a girly girl. Even if just for a night.

I have been so blessed with this wedding. Dress number two should be here by the end of the month. (Two?!!? you ask? Yeah...between a few meltdowns, hardy looks in the mirror, and a few other emotions and realizations it had come to that point.) God does crazy amazing things when you give it all to Him. This wedding WILL be under $1000 which is unheard of. Well, for at least what I'm trying (ahem-will!) pull off. Okay...maybe a little over. Don't quote me on that. When people ask my budget I literally say zero. Because that's really how it is. I have to thank the Apache Indians, my mother, plus willing and able friends to pull this all together.

Oh, and I have that whole Sketchbook Project thing! AH!!! I am regretting my theme and feeling bound by it (though they say we aren't). I pretty much have to finish or be close to it by the wedding because the due date is just after the wedding. Busy busy me. Busy bee.

Wow, this is a really long post. And it includes my thoughts. Crazy. Well my hands are really cold and it's making it hard to type. So, I shall get back to you later.

((So, we got a new (old) computer and sometimes it doesn't allow my to click the 'add photo' button. So no photos this time. But I MUST remedy this!))

Ah! I am so upset with myself that a)I have been away for so long and b)this 10 10 10 post is NOT on 10 10 10!

10 things I hate about today (pretend this was in fact written on 10.10.10)

1. I didn't have a 10 10 10 party.
2. I forgot to tweet at 10:10. Both am and pm.
3. I had to miss my friend's wedding.
4. Still unemployed.
5. Wasted the day by napping because of lack of sleep night before.
6. Nothing really eventful happened in my life.
7. More nagging.
8. No adventures.
9. No celebratory "woohoo's" on either 10:10
10. I lost at Office Clue though I figured it out!

This is sad.
To make this better,

10 thing that were good today:

1. I finally played Office Clue for the first time since I got it for Christmas.
2. Within 20 minutes, I thought about, made, and served yellow cake cookies with homemade frosting. (frosting was already prepared.)
3. An evening with friends and games.
4. A well needed nap.
5. A Sunday baptism at church.
6. A sermon that kept my attention the whole time. Mostly.
7. Spencer.
8. My friend got married and she might be more ocd than me - yay 10.10.10!
9. Darcy texts in the middle of church. Kevin's kool-aid face.
10. I was alive on 10.10.10.
