Some little letters

That I have made it this far in the week feels like a miracle.  This has been a difficult week for me, a must be a glutton for punishment.  So I'm going to tie up the loose thoughts in my brain, and we'll put a wrap on this week once and for all.

Dear School,
You are kicking my tail right now.  Never have I forgotten so many assignments, or been so behind the ball since going back for my second degree.  I'm trying, but wowzers...  Oh, and Finance instructor... we talked about the mistake in the gradebook, and you still haven't fixed it.  What is with that?

Dear weather,
I would really prefer more of this
And less of this
Sadly, I know that I have to take what I can get.

Dear Hoarding,
We really need to part ways.  I don't know why I have such a thing for you.  It's a bad thing, though.  Consider us over.  And consider me singing this song to you, hoarding.

Dear Sewing,
I need to do more of you.  Something about needing to create my WEDDING DRESS makes me think that I need to brush up a bit on my sewing skills.

Dear money,
You stress me out, especially over the next 7 months.  I think that if we can survive the wedding, things will be just fine.  But getting there?  Please show some mercy, finances.  Please show any and all mercy that you can.

Dear wedding vendors,
I officially hate all of you.  I have never been treated so rudely, or ignored so many times as I have in the process of planning a wedding.  Yes, I have a budget.  No, that does not make me ant less of a human being.  Treat me as such, and show some courtesy.

That's what I've got today... Hope you all are having a wonderful Friday!


  1. Are you a hoarder Kristen?! Me too, a bit. And vendors are rude and superior. It was my least favorite part.

  2. the choice to not being a hoarder and then purging your place feels SO GOOD. like, who needs drugs when you can get rid of stuff?!

  3. Could you come and fix my sewing machine?!? It's been on the fritz for awhile and I don't know how to fix it :(

  4. Oh, Kristen. It sounds like it's been a rough week, but as you've probably already reminded yourself, you'll get through it! School is stressful. I was in a school rut earlier this week too. Yikes. (Your professor really needed to fix the grade error. That would drive me bonkers.)

    As for wedding planning, it can be stressful, especially the beginning/working out vendor details. I didn't have the "luxury" of a long engagement (well, planning timeline since I was never officially engaged), so it was a whirlwind for me. I didn't love planning my wedding. There, I said it. :)

    Congratulations on making it to the weekend (almost)! I say that with sincere well wishes, not sarcasm. Enjoy the weekend!

  5. Gah I hate wedding vendors too! So expensive and not helpful at all for the most part! I am panicking because I only have 4 months to go!!

  6. Luckily I didn't have to deal with wedding vendors because we got married at my parents' farm, but i can imagine that they would be a serious pain!

    You're making your own wedding dress? INCREDIBLE.

  7. Wedding vendors are the worst. This is why we should just ignore them. And get rid of them.

  8. Is that snow?! I'm not ready for that yet! Hope fall comes back to you for a little while!


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
