Just a Few More Days...

Everyone keeps asking me if I'm nervous. Heck no! Get me outta here! :) I'm not looking forward to the two day trek involving driving two dogs to their new home, but I'll be so excited to be there. All of this flying back and forth stuff is not for me.

I packed up my work cubicle Friday and said goodbye to my teammates. One of them bought my lunch and one of them gave me a Chick-Fil-A gift card. This makes me think maybe I should leave town more often!

I talked to my mom today and apparently she was just hit with the realization that she won't see me again until the wedding. For some reason, this seemed remarkable to her even though I just saw her last weekend and the wedding is next month. We go six month stretches without seeing each other all the time, but I guess it's different for her knowing that I'm just a couple of hours away. Who knew?

My alterations on my dress are done (no more cookies until after the wedding!). I fear that the dress may take a scandalous turn if it gets any tighter. I'm going to try to keep it appropriate.

I've had a couple of offers on the house, but they were ridiculous, so it's still on the market for now. I've had a couple of showings in the past couple of days, so I feel like it will sell when the right people see it. I'm not moving the majority of my stuff until it sells anyway, so if the house is still here for my use during wedding crunch time, so be it. It will be so nice to be out of it though so I don't have to rush around like a cleaning mad woman every time it needs to be shown. The other morning I was trying to get it ready for a showing before I left for work. In the meantime, one dog puked on the carpet, one dog pooped in the bathroom, and one dog climbed up onto a crate, yoinked a bag of treats, and commenced tearing it open and chowing down. All within a few minutes of each other. I think I'm being tested.

At any rate, life is good and I get to see TheGroom in 5 days for the first time in 3 weeks! And after that I don't have to be apart from him anymore. Whoo hoo!

Hey Jen, would you post some pictures on your blog too for those of us who are not on FB? It'd be great to see some pictures of the wedding and of your new life. :)
Also, how did you get your dog to poop in the bathroom? You must be a great trainer! :) LOL. Your account of your dogs and their mess before your house showings sounds like what happens in my house with my kids right before church people come over to our house.

I don't know why she poops in the bathroom. I guess it's one of the better indoor places for her to go, so I shouldn't fuss at her too much. ;)
