Never scared

I'm sitting in the waiting room of an oral surgeon's office, about the go under the knife. After 25 years, I can no longer put off getting my wisdom teeth pulled. One got infected last week and it's all gone downhill from there.

I'm FREAKIN out, man!!!
(Bonus points if you can guess the movie that quote is from)

I haven't had anything to eat since 6 o'clock last night (filet mignon w/ grilled asparagus, natch) and surprisingly enough, I'm not starving! I do, however, have a massive headache, but I can't take anything to make it go away. It's not been a fun day for me.

If I'm not too hopped up on the drugs I'll try to get a picture of the inevitable chipmunkness that will be going on in just a few short hours. Yippee!!

Spinsterhood, here I come!

I've been brewing up some pretty "deep" posts, but I never have the time (or motivation) to actually type them out. I keep saying "some day" and "next time" but sorry kids, this just ain't it.

Instead I have pictures!

My dad managed to snag himself an apartment a couple months back. The first month was free, but he and his roommates couldn't come up with rent for the second month, so they got the boot. While there he managed to "adopt" 2 kittens. Why a virtually homeless person would find it a good idea to take in a couple of cats, I don't know. But it doesn't matter now. The kittens came to live with me when dad got evicted. They are wild and crazy and purr at just the sight of me. I love them to bits and they are here to stay!

Intoducing Ruby and Rilo:
Ruby on the left, Rilo on the right. Sister and brother.

Ruby is always on the move. And because of her blackness, she seems to blend in to everything. Most pictures I have of her turn out blurry, if you can even see her at all!

Rilo is the very definition of the curious cat. He is pretty much always up to no good. The spot on the top of his head looks like hair with a nice butt-part, the way it frames his face like that.

Talk about uneventful. This weekend consisted of a whole lot of nothing, with a helping of not a darn thing on the side.
Friday night Ty and I had dinner with courtney and Ryan. Was good to get some one on one couple time with them. You can really tell Co is pregnant these days. Her tummy is growing pretty fast.
Saturday I went out with tiffany (ty's sister) to check out a reception hall for her wedding in January. Helped her pick out a pair of shoes to wear w/ her dress, too. Afterwards I had her drop me off at Lauren's house (who is getting married next april) so I could accompany her to a venue, too. I'm thinking I should start to charge people for my services. I've unofficially become the official wedding planner for these 2 weddings. There's going to be at least 3 more in the next year. Could always use the additional income!
Sunday was family time with the Stewarts. Took in a movie and did some more wedding planning.. Was also measured for my bridesmaid dress. Yikes! Will spare the horrid details. Just know that operation: Get Jen Skinny (GJS) is most definitely under way.
Please try to bare with me, as I'm sure a lot of my posts are going to have to do with this attempt at weight loss. Oh! And wish me luck!

As I Wait

It's 6:55 pm and I'm waiting. Like usual. I'm pretty sure its impossible for tyler to be on time for anything. Dinner plans at 7:00. Meeting friends, hate to make them wait. Ty is just now getting home. He still has to shower. This happens often, and in case you can't tell, it drives me crazy! Now, I've never been a punctual person myself. If you know me, you know (and hopefully embrace) that. However, if I make dinner plans ON MY DAY OFF, knowing that others (especially the significant one) will be waiting for me to get there before they eat, I WILL be on time. There's no reason not to be, right? I mean, it's not like he hasn't been sitting around all day! Grr...

And just to bring it all together, please know that I love this kid with my whole heart. He is amazing and perfect and I'm SO lucky. I know this. But can't he just be on time for once in his life? Is that so much to ask?
