You know me, I'm the eternal Optimist

I am getting so ticked with people spamming my comment section. Who does that? Why are people so uncool? And why can't spam or junk mail have anything good in it? Just once I'd like to check the mail and get my FREE GIFT!!! trial sample of opium.

And with that, you probably already know how my day was. That's right. It was shitty. The way Monday thru Thursday always is. But, the glass is half-full so how about I share something optimistic. Here is the best thing that happened to me this weekend:

I was incredibly sick all weekend - dizzy, congested, unable to hear, fever, cough. On sunday, I was finally feeling up to a movie so Sven and I went on a double-date with Donny and his sick girlfriend to see Harry Potter. After the movie, I went to the bathroom where my appearance confirmed my sickness. As I washed my hands, I could not help but notice these 13-year-olds primping in front of the mirror with their lowcut jeans revealing washboard tummies. To my annoyance, I became even more aware of my already obvious revolting condition. But, as we exited the bathroom, it was clear that only one of us was being waited on by an incredibly good-looking man. ME!!! That's right - me. The ancient woman wearing a sweatshirt with no make-up on, hacking her lungs up.

I shouldn't have felt smug, but I did.

Big Week

This is a big week for me. Things so big have happened that I really can't fathom how big they are. In my head, they are happening to someone else and I'm just sort of watching.

The Event of the DECADE: My niece Braelyn Marie was born this weekend. She is adorable. I'm serious - She is so so beautiful, I can't even believe it. I'm trying not to be the insane aunt here, so I didn't take that many pictures. But, I did take some and will post them soon. I love her. She is absolutely perfect.

The Event of the YEAR: Sven and I close on the house this friday!! We move in next Wednesday!! I've been consumed with fixing the condo so it will sell and haven't even begun to think about living in the house. When we put in an offer on the house, I spent a lot of time daydreaming about Sven and I living there, but the timeframe was 5 years from now, not next week. So, I'm overwhelmed with things to do. My favorite part is going to be putting up the Christmas tree since we move in on Thanksgiving. My mom is going to make personalized stockings for Sven and me. I can't wait.

Back to Life

It's been at least 6 months since my last post. I stopped posting for a long time because I was in a bad mood - mainly for one reason that I can't talk about on the blog. So, rather than rant endlessly about people that piss me off but do not read my entries, but cannot be called out in the open and have everyone worry they were the anonymous person even though they were not and could never be, I stopped writing. Trust me - I did you all a favor (except for Sven who will probably need counseling).

But, I'm back now :) Here's a recap of what has happened:

1.) Sven and I got engaged (yay!!! a most unexpected and welcome surprise)
2.) Sven and I are buying a house (yay again!!! another unexpected and welcome surprise)
3.) My niece is almost here (HOORAY!!! I can't believe she's almost here!)

Pictures and details to come...
