Thankful Thursday, plus some

I want to post a normal Thankful Thursday post, but first I need a mini bitch session....

I am so TIRED of making decisions.  I HATE hearing "I don't know" or "It's up to you"  every time I ask for advice.  Then when I actually know how I want something being met with total resistance.

My car has been a total pain in the ass for almost 7 years.  I have never gone more than 3 months without something major needing to be done.  Yesterday I was driving to get one of the front wheel bearings replaced when a HUGE rock hit my windshield and chipped it.  Then after I dropped it off for the planned work they called me to say it needs much more major work done.  Something with the part that keeps the wheels on.  Of course with my car the part is MUCH more costly.  So it will be back to the shop on Monday to get it done since I can't drive on the expressways as it is, which means I need it done so I can pick P up next Friday.  The glass guy is coming to the house by noon today to fill the chip.

Work has been sooooooo slow.  I make commission so when I have no clients I make no money.  On top of that I feel somewhat mentally checked out already.  2 months left.

I ordered the wrong style wedding invites.  It is totally my own fault for not noticing the style more closely.  Annoying still.  They should be here today.  On Saturday I am taking them to a printer to see if they can cut the extra part off and use it to print our map on.  If not oh well, only I will know....and all of you.

OK that's feels better to get off my chest

I am Thankful this week for:

Tuesday with my dearest friend.  Lunch, errands, her amazing help with my registry, shopping at Oak Brook (my new happy place), and enjoying time together before both our lives change so much in these upcoming weeks and months.

Finding awesome dining room chairs.  They are more unique then the ones I first liked and $50 less!  Plus I was able to drop one off with the guy making our table and he's matching the stain to the seat and painting the pedestal black.

We found a rental house!!  I will tell the whole story and share pictures once we know 100% we are getting it.  But the house is AMAZING!!  Built in the 1800's or earlier 1900's.  Totally renovated and updated.  3 beds and 2.5 baths, plus a HUGE yard.  And it's very close to post.  P is going to look at it in person on the 14th and we are hoping to sign the lease ASAP.  I am over the moon about being back in my own space.

I picked my veil up yesterday at the bridal shop.  The sales lady that helped me came up to chat.  I was saying how I wish I had bought a smaller size dress since mine is huge on me now.  Another girl pipped in explaining (some what rudely, but informatively) that I need side seem alterations.  I called the seamstress and she agreed to do them.  I think I will feel much better and the dress will look much nicer.  I also found out that I can drop my dress and veil back off the week of the wedding to be steamed and the bodice stuffed.  The best part is they will keep it until the night before the wedding!

We are getting married in exactly 100 days!

Only 8 more days until P is here.  I. CAN. NOT. WAIT!
