bury my lovely

I think I'm done being depressed about Kevin not having a job, because there's really nothing I can do about it except support him. Let's just all hope the bank doesn't foreclose on our house.

Anyway, what a weekend. Saturday I spent 4 hours in a suburban with a bunch of muddy guys. We had to go down to Marietta to rescue Lou after the trailer with his four-wheeler flipped over. That's all I'm going to say.

The world is going crazy

"You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the
best golfer is a black guy, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is
accusing the U.S. of arrogance, and Germany doesn't want to go to war..."

some good news

This morning, I found the following e-mail in my in-box:
Hey Heidi!
I have big news!! I'm pregnant! The baby is due in November, right in time for Thanksgiving! Ed and I have already started to get to baby stuff too!! We are also moving because we need more room. We are moving at the end of April into an apartment. Well, I gotta run! Hope all is well with you!
Mary Ellen

So, congratulations to Mary Ellen and her husband Ed. I can't wait to meet the little one!

Also, last week I found out that a good friend from B-W may be moving from Toronto back to Cleveland in the next month or so.

we should all be paid for the number of hours it feels like we worked

In that case, I'd never have another financial worry, ever. Kevin lost his job on Tuesday. In order to compensate, I am working more than is normal for me at this time of year. Keep in mind that Easter is just around the corner, which is busier in the church than Christmas. I have extra services coming out of my ass. I also agreed to play more weddings and funerals, which is the bulk of my weekend plans come Saturday morning. This blows.

family feuds

There's no turning back, now. The invitations have been ordered and are expected to arrive early next week. I suppose this is all for the best, considering 2 weeks ago at this time we were seriously thinking about pulling the plug on the whole wedding thing anyway - too much stress, yelling, and fighting. I just don't think it's right that I should have to cross of friends of Kevin's and mine, to make room for other people our parents say we have to invite.

I know it's been a while since I last posted. I have only one word to say about that: stress. Anxiety about the wedding, illness invading our home, Kevin going back to school, fear of losing jobs, etc. It's a bit much right now.


1. "Okay, okay! I take it back. Unscrew you"
2. "You say I'm a witch like it's a bad thing"
3. "Well this day was a total waste of make-up"
4. "Well aren't we a bloody ray of sunshine?"
5. "Don't bother me, I'm living happily ever after."
6. "Do I look like a people person?"
7. "This isn't an office. It's hell with fluorescent lighting"
8. "I started out with nothing and still have most of it left"
9. "Therapy is expensive. Popping bubble wrap is cheap. You choose"
10. "Why don't you try practicing random acts of intelligence and senseless acts of self-control?"
11. "I'm not crazy. I've been in a very bad mood for 30 years."
12. "Sarcasm is just one more service I offer."
13. "Do they ever shut up on your planet?"
14. "I'm not your type. I'm not inflatable"
15. "Stress is when you wake up screaming and you realize you haven't gone to sleep yet"
16. "Back off!! You're standing in my aura."
17. "Don't worry. I forgot your name too."
18. "I work 45 hours a week to be this poor."
19. "Not all men are annoying. Some are dead."
20. "Wait...I'm trying to imagine you with a personality"
21. "Chaos, panic and disorder ... my work here is done."
22. "Ambivalent? Well yes and no."
23. "You look like s - - t. Is that the style now?"
24. "Earth is full. Go home."
25. "Aw, did I step on your poor little bitty ego?"
26. "I'm not tense, just terribly, terribly alert."
27. "An erection doesn't count as personal growth."
28. "You are depriving some village of an idiot."
29. "If idiots could fly, this place would be an airport."
