Its true. Its exactly how I feel right now. I don’t get invited out much. I understand during the week but the weekends? I didn’t even get an invite to a friend’s baby shower and I was looking forward to shopping for baby stuff. I have to admit I was hurt. I was also hurt that I didn’t even get an invite to a friend’s wedding last year. I was also hurt too. I thought I have friends but maybe I was wrong.
I am afraid of change.
I know some changes are good like all the changes I have made over the past year since I have met the love of my life almost exactly a year ago. The changes are as followed (in no particular order): 1) meeting the love of my life. 2) Moving in together. Now that was a huge change that I have made.I was clearly ready to move in with him and I never got homesick. Thank goodness.
Ok I only had two that I was to come up with LOL.
The change that I am referring to is finding a new job and quitting my current job. Its because they are giving me a hard time due to the fact that I am hard of hearing. Threatening to take away hours because I can’t hear on the headset. Also saying that I am holding them back. Its called discrimination and I do not deserve it all or deserved to be treated like crap. The hard part is that I have been there for over 10 years now and at this point I cannot imagine working someplace else. I try not to let them get to me which isn’t an easy task.
Well, that’s all I have to say for now.
I went shopping for my wedding dress yesterday. I had a goal which was to find a dress and not expensive. I really didn’t feel like driving all over the place just to find a dress. Also risk a chance of having to pay more for a dress….no thank you. Anyways, I was slightly nervous cuz I was afraid that I wasn’t going to find a dress, but mostly excited. I had my Mom, my soon-to-be mother in law, my bestie/maid of honor and my sister in law (my brother’s wife). They started off by giving me a tour even though I was familiar with the place. Then told them what I was looking for.
I tried on the 1st dress and I liked it. It was really pretty and everyone thought so too. Went to try on the 2nd dress and when I looked in the mirror I knew it was the one because I automatically envisioned myself walking down the aisle in that dress. All the ladies came with me agreed that the dress was gorgeous on me. After I tried on that dress I went ahead and I tried on 4 more dresses and none of them had the same effect on me or the ladies. When the consultant (I’m going to ask for her to work with us when I pick out the bridesmaids dresses and the flower girl’s dress) told me that I was going to put the dress (dress #2 aka THE DRESS) I was excited lol. We went ahead and tried on veils. Not going to have a blusher and may not have a 2 layered or tiered veil. I don’t think I will have it covering my face. My Mom and my soon to be mother in law cried during this process lol. Then while I was still wearing THE DRESS the consultant asked me if that was the dress and I said YES!!!! Then she told me it was only about $600 and that it was also on sale for about $400!!!! I was super excited!!!!! I honestly wasn’t expecting to find a dress at the first store. At the same time I had met my goal. Now I can focus on other things.
The bonus for buying my dress at the shop is that the girls will be able to save a bit of money as well. I’m planning to buy my shoes, garters and my veil amongst a few other things from there as well. I might have the girls pick out their shoes from the shop as well. Not sure yet. Well, I better get going.
My fiancé and I have made some more changes and decisions.
One, we have decided not to get cable. We will still have the hookup and will be able to get the basic channels like ABC, CBS and a few others. We will save a lot of money that way. More like $50 to $80 a month depending on a package. Not worth it. Plus, I have gotten used to not having cable.
Two, we have decided to cut back on pop. We have pop here but we have decided that once we are out of pop we won’t go out and buy more. Our goal is to stop drinking pop. That’s easier said than done. We will prolly drink pop occasionally when we are out and about. Other than that by not going to the grocery store to buy pop we will be saving anywhere between $20-$30 a month. Our drink of choice will be lemonade, chocolate milk (I hate white milk), tea (I’m going to try drinking it), juice and water. Water will be filtered because I can taste the chlorine in it for whatever reason.
Well those are the changes and decisions that we have made. We will be proud of ourselves in the long run.
Any girls out there that has a close relationship with their mothers are so lucky. I don’t have much of a relationship with mine. I have a much better relationship with my step-mother.
