  • My shit is working yo. See the problem wasn’t that it wasn’t working, but that it’s on a freaking chip so you can’t SEE it working and I couldn’t get any results out. Two days of this. I KNEW it was working, but I couldn’t see any F***ING results. Finally. I have results. Not the final results, somehow I caught a midpoint, which is still f***ed, but whatever. I have proof. It works.
  • I like eye makeup.
  • I hate nail polish.
  • My jeans have holes in them.
  • Rings should be worn. No really.
  • HOW long does it TAKE for green tomatoes to become RED?!
  • I’m sparing the world more pictures of my green tomatoes. Be thankful.
  • I like ginger beer. It isn’t alcoholic and barely carbonated. Why is it called beer?
  • I’ve got the song “Somewhere Around Midnight” by Airborne Toxic Event on repeat.
  • I had something else in my head, but getting results knocked it straight out.
  • I’m much happier now that it cooled off about 20 degrees (when the heatwave broke).

Sucky weekend

I’m already behind on writing Thank You cards. Bear and I had a cold from hell this weekend. The weather was freaking crazy (hot hot hot humid 97 degrees then poof thunderstorms that knocked out the power).

I slept from 10pm on Saturday until 2pm on Sunday. I got up for an hour or two in there to walk around but I’d feel so tired and achy and ill that I’d go to lay down and then I’ll fall back asleep. In between all the sleeping I’d keep taking Bear to work. All in all, the weekend kinda sucked and wasn’t productive at all.

The highlight was the tomato plants. Look at how big they are!

Do y’all see how many blooms there are? There are at least 6 bunches. Most of them are off the cherry tomato plant, which already has a few green tomatoes:

The biggest one (on the bottom) is the same one from last week. It’s grown a ton in 5 days.

This is the same bunch on Thursday the 17th. The smallest one in the back is mostly hidden by a leaf, but it’s there.

I even have two baby Beauties.

Those suckers are so hidden that I didn’t notice them until yesterday.

I realize that the tomatos are kinda boring if you aren’t the one fretting that you never gave them their second shot of fertilizer and it’s probably too late now and are the birds going to eat your tomatos and you watered them and then it rained and too much water is bad and when they are close to the house they don’t get nearly as much sun but far away from the house means that those nasty thunderstorms could rip the branches right off and they are too heavy to keep moving back and forth and back and forth and Bear is thinking you are even crazier than usual and he doesn’t want to help move them. *sighs* It’s more fun than thinking about the million thank you cards.


I’m home! Bear and I have actually been home since Monday. Bear even went to work on Monday. Crazy huh? I’ve been at work since Tuesday. I really wish now that we’d taken a honeymoon. We’ll take a vacation just the two of us at some point.

The wedding was fucking fantastic. I cannot even tell you. Surpassed my wildest dreams, my deepest hopes, my craziest fantasties. There were a few moments that were jarring, but I put them aside. I even have pictures of us for the blog. My mother did it completely unknowning how fantastic and appropriate they were.

This is us cooking for the wedding. (Nevermind that Bear didn’t cook. My Maid of Honor, my Partner in Crime, My Sister helped me do the stuffed mushrooms and then she and my brother finished them off the next night.)

Those potatos were damn good. Again thanks to the bestest friend in world. I would not have gotten through those days without her.

Here we are under the arch. It’s fuzzy. I realize that. And that’s not even the finished arch. *sighs* But we did walk under it. Just after it was finished and in the daytime.

And here we are relaxing on the banister… (Seriously, I’d love to call Mom up and ask her what was up with the pictures, but whatever. She was having fun that night.)

It was a fantastic ceremony and the reception went on from the afternoon (started around 3pm) until around 11pm that night. There was cake, dancing, food, chatting, a slideshow, a zipline, swimming for the wee ones, fireworks and sparklers. Good times. Good people. Beautiful flowers that ended up being worth the exorbitant amout of money.

Then I had a great surprise when I came back!

Look at my tomato plants! They grew!!! So big!

I even have little baby tomatos!!! It’s fabulous!

Let’s just say it’s been a good month so far.

shaking and scared

So I fly in about 4 hours. I have no idea why, but I’m terrified. My arms are shaking, I feel like I want to cry. Wedding jitters? Leaving Bear jitters? I have no freaking idea what’s going on with me. I meant to post the tomato plant pictures from last Thursday, but I’ve been so distracted. The plants have more than doubled in size since I planted them. I had to put the cage up. It’s amazing how they change.

I’m going now. Probably won’t be blogging while I’m gone. I have limited internet. I hope the shaking stops.
