Confessions of a Disorganized Person

So, I really meant to continue the post about the Catholic Engaged Encounter, and I will, but a while ago (not sure when) I lost the USB cable to my camera.  In order to get pictures from my camera to my computer, I have to go to Wal-Mart, put my memory card in one of those photo kiosks, and pay for a digital photo CD.  I haven't figured out a better way to do it, but if you know of one, let me know!

Anyway, moral of the story, I might have to wait until I have some more pictures before I bite the bullet and pay for a CD and continue the saga.  In the meantime, some updates on our lives.

I am honestly enjoying my job a lot more this year, but that's not saying much. Last year, I'm pretty sure Matt was close to walking out on me since I was such a Debbie Downer. Thank goodness he has the patience of a saint. It was a rough year, and this year I'm focused on not letting my job take over my life.  It's taken a serious attitude adjustment and also an adjustment in my work habits.  I cannot possibly procrastinate in my job if I want to enjoy the rest of my life. I'm still not totally happy there, but I feel much less overwhelmed and I am not being as hard on myself as I was.  Our CEE weekend really helped me in this area, because I am now thinking more about how my attitude affects Matt, and I'm more conscious about bringing all of it home with me.

Matt is happy at his job, despite annoyances such as the water lines being frequently cut off of late.  His school is older and strapped for cash, so there are a lot of problems like that, it seems.  He is very busy with coaching cross-country, and soon it will be even busier with basketball. The upside is that he really enjoys coaching basketball even though it takes a lot of his time.  I miss him a lot sometimes during the winter!  I look forward to someday being able to come to more of his games since hopefully I'll work closer to him.  It's an hour drive between my school and his.

We had our engagement pictures taken by Taisia Gordon last weekend, which was a lot of fun.  I can't wait until they come out! Taisia was beyond fun and we felt totally comfortable with her.  It was much easier than I thought it would be. A couple of weeks ago I met with a florist and tried to sort out flowers, which was a LOT harder than I thought!  Who would have known there were so many decisions to make?  I've had some trouble with our coordinator at our venue, so we had to scrap some things originally planned just to save my sanity.  My dress came in and it fits like a glove and looks gorgeous.  Next up: invitations.

The latest wedding issue is whether to continue with our plan to "iPod" our wedding reception, or get a DJ.  There are pros and cons to both, and we are starting to doubt our original plans a bit.  The money-saving aspect is definitely the ULTIMATE pro of the iPod, but it would be nice not to have to worry so much and let a DJ take care of things.  Decisions, decisions.  Regardless of what we choose to do, I know that we will throw a great party!

Because I already love your blog, I just bought you a memory card reader. It plugs in your computer as a USB and you stick the memory card in the other end. It's being shipped this week. Blog on, sister!
