Moratorium declared

October 13, 2008

on Major Announcements: we’ve had a wedding, a new baby has been born, another baby is in gestation, and two engagements have been announced. That’s this year alone. At least all the actual events will occur next year. In the meantime, I have to be sure to have travel money to attend the baby’s birth, vacation time for nannying (this is my best friend/practically sister, after all), and travel money for at least one of the two weddings to the MidWest which looks to be $500-$700 for airfare alone. My pocketbook weeps. At least it weeps in a lovely new bag?

on all things lips: no more lip gloss, lip color, lip stains, lip balms, lip anything may be purchased, acquired or brought home. Not even if it’s free. Not even if it sits up and begs, with puppy dog eyes. Which would be weird, and all the more reason to leave it there.

on negativity: Monday is bring the dog to work day, summer weather is leaving us for a whole five days before we see the 90s again and I have a brand new fuzzy sweatshirt for just the occasion, I’m having delicious chicken-pasta-tomato basil soups for lunch. Also, ten fingers, ten toes, full mental (ok, arguable) capacity, and enough mobility to get around. I have every reason to be happy!

on cruising “just looking” at electronics deals
: duh.

  1. What exciting things to look forward to!

    notesfromthefrugaltrenches: I know! The dog is hanging out with us today, and he’s SO cute. He’s giving me sad eyes because everyone’s eating lunch and not sharing.

    puuuuppppyyy. i seriously envy all dog owners. I really shouldn’t get one til i move back to the states…what with quarantines and all (maybe that’s only if you’re moving FROM the states, though??? somehow knowing the US customs/airport security I doubt it though.).

    anyway, the money aspect of so many goings-on sucks but wow! to be there with your friend with her first and brand new baby?? that is pretty awesome! (and I don’t even like babies.) things will die down soon enough–believe me–but I hope your friends will have the type of weddings where they can always remember the good time they had with you.

    It Rocks !!!!

    sense: 😀 He was a TOTAL goof. We played catch/keepaway with him for a while, and he would actually keep track of whose turn it was to get the ball when he snagged it.

    Yep, I dunno how I’m going to swing the logistics of it, but I plan to be there for her first. Second and third, nyeh. Just kidding! This is the first baby in this particularly close group of friends, and she and I have been friends since we were 11 so it’s very poignant. I’m not a huge fan of kids right now either, but this is the next step in our plan of becoming little old ladies together. 🙂

    I’m going to be a bit more peripheral to these weddings than previous ones, though, for my sanity and such.

    crow: Um, thanks, that’ll have to go on my list sites NOT to check out until the moratorium is lifted, though.

  6. Which reminds me. I need to plan $$$ for my friend’s wedding this upcoming summer, PLUS my big trip to Asia…
