We got his ring last week and my ring resized. It's amazing how much you can accomplish if you do a little bit everyday. There are only a few more things left on our list but we are basically set and ready for take-off.
Everyone keeps asking me who else is coming to our wedding and I tell them all the same thing. "So-and-so said they were coming but I won't believe until they're right in front of my face." I know how things happen at the last minute. My mom couldn't take me to Disneyland everyday when I was little even though she promised.
Our 5-year anniversary was last Saturday which is also the birthday of a dear friend of mine. The day after that is the anniversary of a good friend of mine who passed 4 years ago. I use his homecoming to God or whatever entity resides over us to recognize my blessings.
Two couples I know are getting married in May/June and it puts a smile on my face because between the sadness in this world are huge moments of happiness. Celebrating, being with family and friends can make your shitty week seem like nothing when compared with the joy and love that surrounds you. I feel like crap - I have a cold -- but the way I look at it is: better now then during the wedding. Let my immune system build itself back up so I can party like it's 1999.
