THANK GOD it is payday!
I spent lots of money in the last few months and I will be paying on it for the next few months! SCREAM

I'm sleepy this morning. I was up late last night on-line doing stuff. I had a school meeting for parents that I had to attend. My house in in TOTAL disarray and I am beginning to suffer.

Although our new bedroom set and mattress set was delivered on Monday. It sleeps well and the furniture is HUGE. I feel like I need a step ladder to get out of the bed.

I was sick last week with sinus stuff. I should have stock with Kleenex now. I can't seem to clear my head.

Any thoughts on O'Bamas minister????? Hubby and I got into a debate last night. We will NEVER agree on politics.

Happy day to you all.

My kids were great! They were so sweet to do this for me. They sang "Oh Happy Day" and Hallelujah.
My will see him on American Idol as soon as he is old enough. The girls swoon over him and his stage presence, he's just a natural! His smile just lights up a room.

The Church on April 12, 2008.

These are two of the bright spots of our wedding party. Makenzie is on the left and Baylee on the right. They were precious flower girls!!! All of my girls puckering up for my hubby. He was BRIGHT red when they shot the photo.

My daddy loves me! He is not an affectionate fella, so this is a rare moment!

From left to right: Stephy my college roommate, Tara one of my high school buds, Gee my sister and Amy who was my Maid of Honor.
My new family......

My entrance. I was so nervous! I think I even scared my dad. I told him he better be ready to catch me if I fall.

First Presbyterian really is a beautiful church....I like all aspects but one. The carpet is hideous!

These are a few of my students who sang two songs at the wedding. They are student in 6, 7 & 8th grade. I taught them over the years. They sounded so sweet!

The whole wedding party. Gee, Dalton, Angel, Tara
Ben, Stephy, Amy, Me, Reagan, Mike, Makenzie and Baylee.

One pic ~

We are home.

I am exhausted. The next 3 weeks will be crazy as in he is moving in with me.
I have 2 weeks left to do do projects for Grad school.

I have thank you notes to write.

I need sleep.

The wedding went off with out a hitch...I think.
My kids were great at the ceremony.

The florist was wonderful. I would use her and promote her to anyone!

I was disappointed in the food at the Marriott.

Pictures maybe this week. Let me see how I get the house in some type of order and some notes mailed and a project completed.

Much love.

It's 3:14 a.m.
I just hung up with my first true love. He and I have been in each others lives for 20 years this summer. We had an electric connection. He walked up to me at a concert at University of New Orleans and just kissed me. He didn't say hello, he just kissed me. We fell head over heels in love and will take that love with us to our graves.
He married about 9 years ago. He's content and has a beautiful daughter now.
Well, with my big day approaching we spent a few hours on the phone tonight. He is genuinely happy for me. Of course several of our friends are standing in the wedding. I sensed he felt a bit left out. He could be the life of the party. He has a great personality and blends well with all kinds of people.
I feel a bit of relief after talking to him. I have such fond memories of our years, our friends and the lust for life we shared. I am entering a new chapter in my life and have a real issue with change. It is typically something that I dread, I fight it and can be afraid of it.
Instead, he offers me new hope, a new segment of my life that should be embraced and cherished. He gives me his love, approval and best wishes.
I just needed to send God a thank you for the love he has sent me. I feel blessed.

Yes, I am nervous. I am nervous about the actually ceremony not the marriage...OK well, I haven't had a roommate in over a decade. I am a bit reluctant to give up all of my space. I'm a brat.

I am thrilled to be seeing all of my bridesmaids. You must realize I haven't seen 2 of them in 8-10 years. We talk of course, but one is in Texas and the other Florida. I wish we were able to spend more time together than we are actually going to. *frown*

I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I have so MUCH going on EXCEPT for sleep. I'm a cranky lady without sleep. MEOW MEOW

Much Love.....

10 days and I will be married! of my best friends here she is singing a solo at the wed...We went to the church last night after work and met with the organist. We met him in the choir loft and he played me several songs for the prelude and or actual ceremony. The Church is large and the organ is renowned for it's ability and intensity. He played me the traditional wedding march and I thought my heart would JUMP out of my chest. Ya"ll hear me arranging things and stressing out...but not until yesterday did I feel like it was really happening. Geezeeeeee.

On a *happy* note~

R gave me red and white flowers last night when I got home(these are the colors of the wedding flowers). They are lovely. He was sweet.

This morning about an hour after I got to department head had flowers delivered to work. They are a lovely mix of bright cheerful colors.

I go to my hairdresser this afternoon right after work...we have a brief faculty meeting to have our next year contracts passed out...
