Why I haven't posted...

There have been several times in the past few days that I have thought to myself to post. However, they've usually been when I was angry or upset at something small and piddly. Why make an angry post....a lot? not worth it to me. The other reason I've not posted is just being so darn busy. Between work, being a domestic Goddess, and spending time with D and family, we've just been non-stop.

One thing that has struck me as peculiar latly though is this: I got a comment the other day on one of my entries. The person said that I didn't know them, but that they had recently found my blog. There was a couple other things mentioned, and I thanked them but that wasn't it. The thing that struck me was the word recently. That is a vauge word. Very vauge in this case. The reason I say that is because I have a tracker on my blog. Not only does it tell me how many visitors, but it gives me the IP address, the location, the entry page, the exit page, number of viewings, etc. I checked the time of the comment versus the tracker. The IP address that has come up, has followed me for months. In fact, I mentioned the user a few months back in a blog. So I guess the word brought up a couple questions to my mind: How recent is recent? and Why is this person trying to be anonymous??

Cleaning Lady anyone??

So March really isn't all that far away.....and I've got a TON to do between now and then. The house isn't total caos, but at the same time, I feel like I never catch up on the things that need to be done. There's always something else to finish....AHHHH

By the way....we have an Air Hockey Table that has to go bye bye....anyone want to purchase it?

WOW!!! What a great time!!!

Well, we're home. The wedding was AMAZING!!! Yes, I was more than stressed out Friday morning, but Friday night went off without a hitch. You know they say that every wedding has that one things that goes wrong...the only thing that I can even think of is that the pastor announced us as Mr. and Mrs. Dan and Katy instead of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel. Oh well. Obviously not major.

The pictures that I have seen are OMG amazing. I've not seen a whole lot. Check out Amber's blog to see some. Hopefully she'll have them done realativly soon. Rob and Amber were a blast to have as photographers!! I'm telling's WELL worth having them to do your photos for your wedding...or sr. pictures....or family shots...what have you!!

Disney was wonderful!!! We had such a great time that we are already planning on going back next year. We'll probably head back about the same time of year with his family. Should be a GREAT time.

We're both back to work full force. Some of the guys gave him a hard time at work yesterday. One guy went as far as to say, "Dan if you wanted your balls chopped off we would have done it here for didn't have to go out and get married." However this came from a guy who swore he'd never get married again and then comes back after a long weekend where he had run off to Gatlinburg and got married... Most of the guys were happy for him.

There's one other piece of news that we are excited for!!! March 18, 2007 is the due date for our "Peanut." We are so stinkin' excited, but have a lot to get done. We need to get ourselves and the house organized and baby safe as well as turn the "catch all"/game room into a nursery. There's just not enough hours in the day!

This is it....

I've been slacking on posting due to the craziness that goes on the two weeks prior to a wedding. Trust me it's craziness. My theme these past two weeks, "we should have eloped. It would have been cheaper and less stress."

We're leaving tonight, yeah tonight for Cincinnati. I can't believe it's finally here....and I'm not one of those who took forever to plan her wedding. I can only imagine what that's like. I'm amazed at the number of 'yes's' we've gotten back. 187. That's crazy to me. That defies the odds for the number of guests invited versus the number that actually shows up. It just blows it out of the water. Makes you feel special really.

The next time I post I'll be a married woman with a new last name. The girl in me has been practicing writing my new name. Yeah, I'm a dork. I know. It's exciting. Finally, after all the heartache, the losers, the rebounds, the dead ends I'm marrying the man I'm supposed to be with for the rest of my life. In a way though it sounds kind of scary. I mean look at it. At 23 I've picked out the man I'm going to spend the REST of my life with. It's a lot less scary now then it was at 19.

This will be my last post until we return on the 21st from our honeymoon. Both of us can't wait for a vacation. It's been along time coming.

P.S. In the end of the story with Linda. I called her Thursday and her ass of a husband had told her that I called and said I was too busy to come over and that I'd call her when I wasn't busy anymore. She said, "well I'll just call her real quick before we leave." He replies, "no, she's really busy." He then rushes her out of the house. He purposfully left her phone at their house so I couldn't call her. When they got home, he carried her daughter in the house, grabbed her phone and headed back out to the car. Linda was searching the entire house for it. While he was outside, he deleted my missed calls and voicemails to her. When he came back in, he magically knew where the phone was and when she looked....there was nothing.

No highlights, lowlights or cut.

Saturday was going to be great. Dan and I headed up to Cincinnati for the day to finalize some music choices as well as get my hair colored, cut and practiced for the wedding. Mom was coming over to Linda's as well to get hers done.

On our way up, mom called to check on a couple quick things since she was at work and was planning on meeting us. No sooner had I hung up, my phone rings again. I see it's Linda's number. I'm definatly excited to answer....I mean comeon, we've been friends since we were 11. No one else has been through as much crap with either one of us. It was her husband*. First thought in my head, "why is he calling me?"

*Ryan and I have NEVER seen eye to eye. In fact,the first time I met him, afterwards I told her no way. Now, they've been married just over a year.

Anyhow, he starts asking if I can change times because she didn't even tell him until that morning that we were coming over. I explained to him that I couldn't for several reasons: I don't just live around the corner anymore, and there is only a small window of time when my mom can be there since she has to work and had plans that evening. Apparently he had something planned and supposedly put a lot of money into it, but didn't tell her even to block the time off for the day. I told him that I had double checked with her and she said that it was no problem, nothing was going on. That's when he got pissed.

The next thing I know, he's using every 4-letter word in the book. Telling me that I use her and that the only time I call her was when I needed my hair done. He then goes, "the past 3 times you've come to see her it's been to get your hair done." I reminded him that we had plans more than once to go out, but they backed out because of something HE had going on. He went on yelling at me while I'm trying to drive on the highway, in the rain. He then says to me, "You know what, I'm going to take her out anyway and you can wait your fat @ss in my driveway until I bring her home." Finally I asked to speak with her. His response, "She's in the shower. What do you want me to do? Go in and make her get out? You can talk to her when she's done." So I replied, "fine." and hung up.

About 10 minutes later, I called back, both her cell and home phone. No answer. Left messages. I tried to call periodically throughout the rest of the morning and into the afternoon. We didn't hurry to leave from the music so they could have more time. We got to their house shortly before 2 (an hour later than scheduled) No one was home. I had told mom what was going on in the process. She met Dan and I over there. I'm, of course, in tears, Dan wasn't really sure how to react, so he stayed pretty quiet. I tried calling her cell again. I know how he is...he wouldn't let her answer the phone.

Mom and I had to make a decision. We have appointments now for the day of my wedding with girls she knows....girls who have never touched my hair before. No coloring, just up-dos.

As far as Linda goes, I hope this isn't the end of such a long friendship of two girls who grew into women together. However, he is not permitted at my wedding. I am not comfortable even being in the same building as him. Should he decide he wants to attend, I know my brother well enough to know that he will ask Ryan to leave.

Ryan is in the army. Served in Iraq, yet comes home and treats his wife's best friend like a dog. He gets no respect from me, mom or Dan whatsoever.
