August 31st, 2001



I awoke this morning to the smell of fresh-brewed coffee wafting down the stairs. This made me think of Easter, or Christmas, or Saturdays of the past when all 5 kids still lived at home and mommy would make elaborate breakfasts. Bacon and sausage and toast and eggs fixed three different ways. Yes, back in the good old days. Fresh-brewed coffee is a warm, kind, and familiar smell that will always remind me of happy days.

In other news, I woke up before my alarm. *shrug* I guess it's better than after. My big-girl bed, though I like the size, is not all it's cracked up to be. My last bed was awesome. One of my friends even commented that it was the perfect combination of softness and firmness. It was. The new bed is like a board. You know when you wake up and you feel like you never want to get out of your comfy bed? Well here, you wake up and think about laying on a board. It's really hard to get comfy on. I don't want to complain because we got it for free, and it's practically new, but I like my old bed. :o(

Fayanne said that my African Violet looked better than hers. Mine has still been living in my room with no windows. It basically gets no sun, or natural air. It does, however, get plenty of artificial light and CO2 (I breath a lot, and it's a small room, so I'm sure it is in good with the carbon dioxide).

Checked mail. Nothing. Yuck. I hate not getting mail. Oh well, I should be showering anyways. Get a jump on everything. Fear not...I will be back.

I was just informed that the nail appointments are at 11:30 and 12 (as opposed to 11 and 11:30). This means that I won't get to the STUNTS Meeting until 1:45 at the earliest. Probably closer to 2. This means that they will probably have left already and I will have misses the entire meeting. Grrrrr....!!!!

Seems a lot of my evening journals start with *sigh*

Busy day again. Went to nail appointment. Was pretty fun. Manicure and pedicure. Pretty color too. Got finished at 12:45 (I was the first one to get fingernails done, and so was the first done with pedicure). I couldn't drive yet, so I sat around until a little after 1.

I drove quickly (50 in a 40 until I caught up with a semi doing 35...figures don't it?) I got to school about 1:20. Walk into meeting in the Studio and try to get right into everything. The meeting itself was pretty fun. Mostly just scheduling and planning for 2 hours, but it was interesting anyway. At 3, everyone dispersed except for Eric, Zach and I, because we had more stuff to do (since Zach and I are the most important huh?) We finished and I got to leave about 3:30. Drove home. Can now get into driveway, and the street is paved. It's nice, but they aren't quite done yet, so I'm guessing it will be bad for another couple month.

Decided to eat lunch, because all I had eaten was a bowl of Corn Pops for breakfast. I love Corn Pops, but they do not fill you up for 6 hours. Had a PB&J sandwich. It was yummy. Then I decided to go to Ci's apartment. Visited with her and Emily's cat Tigger. At 4:45, we went to pick Zoe up from school, then headed up to the church for rehearsal.

Rehearsal wasn't bad. Not too long, not too tedious. I was tired though, so it seemed a bit longer. I'm the first to walk down the aisle, and it's making me a bit nervous. I'm getting all jittery anyways, because in 24 hours it will all be winding down, but that means within the next 24 hours there will be a lot going on.

Rehearsal dinner was good. Lots of fun cus I was at a table with Fayanne and Brad, Dave and Katie, Mikey, Zoe, Ci, Kyle (best man), and Chris (usher). It was entertaining.

Finally left there around 9:30. My car was still at Ci's apartment, so I went home with her. The kids got put in bed and I hung around with my sister and Tigger again. That cat is the coolest ever. He's so great, and a lot of fun to watch too.

Drove myself home at 10:40. Even though curfew isn't until midnight, I'm tired! Got home. Sat and talked with mommy, Fayanne and Emily for a while. That dispersed around 11:30. Read journal for a while, and am now updating.

Hair appointment is tomorrow at 10. Make-up is at 11:30. The limo is picking us up at home at 2. The ceremony is at 3. It's gonna be tight, but we'll be fine.

Hopefully the service will be done by 3:40, and pictures by 4. The reception is set to start at 5, so we'll have plenty of time to get to the hotel, check in our rooms and hang around.

I am *so* tired, i can't even say. Geez, it's been a long hard week. Need sleep...big-girl bed!
