Mind dump

This place has always been and always will be a dumping ground for my thoughts. I’m having a good Monday so far, which is a great judgment considering I’ve only been up for 3.5 hrs. The past few weeks, Mondays have been very groggy for me, not sure why! Perhaps the snow was rejuvenating for me.

  • I didn’t shovel much, thanks to my intrepid/determined fiancé, but it felt really good to move. I was tired after shoveling, but not totally worn out. My arms are still sore two days later. My biceps look marginally larger (so proud of those little muscles). All in all, good feelings!
  • The snow is beautiful. We lost partial power for 2-3 hrs Friday night during the height of things, but NSTAR was very quick about getting it back. Even though I haven’t been getting outside much, and haven’t been keeping up with my Vitamin D supplementation, I feel pretty good even on cloudy days.

My tax returns have been deposited already and I am really happy to see my marginal amount of savings grow a little. I’m going to need all I can get for that wedding! I’m not tracking my monthly expenditures anymore, just not spending unnecessarily except for pre-planned treats & outings (movies 2x monthly, for example), and using coupons everywhere that I can. This week, we’ll go see the new Die Hard, probably Friday night or on the weekend, for Valentines Day.

We have our dream, #1 choice venue picked out. I am keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that they are not out of our imagined price limit (won’t really know until we get there, I guess), but I think they will be.

Just a warning, if one more person asks me about color schemes for my wedding, I might vomit. I just really don’t care! I just want it to be purty!


  1. So what are your color schemes again??

    Really I think you are taking the best approach. When we got married we said "We really don't care, what's important is the WHO not all these dumb details!"
    Good luck!

    1. I figure I have a) tons of time to figure out things like *colors* and b) plenty of inspiration to work with, seeing as it will be an outdoor ceremony in June! I just want seasonal inspiration, nothing really specific, but I don't know if that makes it harder or easier haha.
