What I've done the last month instead of blogging:

1. gone to three wedding dress fittings
2. had two bridal showers (makes for seven total)
3. searched for, stressed over, and finally found new apartment
4. haunted craigslist looking for furniture
5. made 10+ house visits to look at furniture or pick up
6. rented a truck twice
7. spent many hours online fruitlessly researching anything and everything wedding related
8. was broadsided on Dumbarton bridge and became one with the concrete barrier at 80 miles per hour
9. became bridezilla
10. drove through MacArthur Maze during rush hour and lived
11. stressed over late wedding invitations which led to a Berkeley stake out
12. typed up 300 labels
13. stuffed and mailed 550 wedding invitations
14. cleaned new apartment (the dirtiest wood floors EVER)
15. discovered computer has died (again)
16. packed up old apartment
17. moved into new apartment
18. found silverware
19. ate cereal
20. slept in my new lovely bed

And now we have reached the present. I now live in a chaotic mess lined with a whole wall of bookshelves and lovely books. And a fridge that is all MINE.

Meanwhile, I still work full time and commute 2 1/2 hours per day. And I am not sick. This is a miracle.

I didn't know you had an accident!!! Are you OK?! sheesh! sounds like you've been a part of more than one miracle...

excited to see you!

Yes, I did. Someone was merging into me and there was no shoulder for me to escape to. He barely missed hitting me, but I'd already lost control and as a result hit against the barrier. Even the slightest over correction at 80 mph makes a for a scary ride! Amazingly enough, the barrier angled out and away from the base so I got away with only some serious scraping on my hubcaps and a chunk of rubber torn out of my tire.

It IS a miracle and we love you tons. I'm glad you are safe. You are amazing. I am wallowing in admiration for a terrific person. But DO take your vitamin C. Love, Dad

Hey, you didn't tell me you got in an accident. That is required sharing material. We are going to have to go over the rules of what you must report. :) I'm really glad you are okay, and dang, what a month.

Love you!

holy moly, though. accidents are so stressful and demoralizing. I'm so sorry you had to deal with it at all. *and* you are nooot siiiick! you are my miracle from afar.

I long to see you in your bridal glory. je t'adore, ma chere laura!

This charming blog post is almost worth your crazy month. At least for me. :)

Just 10 days until wedding glory!

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
