File under Huh????

Let's just start this by saying we live in the Greater Vancouver Area in British Columbia Canada. I made some books with iphoto on my mac last week and placed an order. Yesterday I got my tracking number saying they had shipped. Yay.
I just logged into fed ex to see where they were at and this is what I saw.

I had to google OR to make sure it was Oregon and TN to make sure it was Tennessee. It is.
Just in case you aren't familiar with Vancouver BC, Medford OR or Memphis TN I checked in with google maps to check the driving directions.

Memphis 40 hours!!!!!!! with possible road closures....
Medford 10 hour drive - esy peasy straight up the highway.

If I knew how to contact someone at apple who cared I would definitely ask them why they are sending my books 40 hours away instead of straight up to me? Here I thought they would be here within 24 hours... Sigh.

I'm posting this every where. Forgive me. I love it and it makes me smile (ok it makes me cry too!) I want to get married again next year. I don't need a new dress - I love that one - I'll wear it again!

I bought the Tron Legacy Reconfigured album on itunes Thursday. YAY! I love it - it has all the stuff I wanted on the original. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Adagio for tron remix. Best car dancing song, best work out song, best jumping up and down acting like an idiot song.

I'm trying to attach it here - but don't know if it will work - never been good at putting music on the internet. Had to make it into a little 'movie' - the image doesn't change so don't bother watching it - just get up and dance.
1:15 is where it gets GOOD! and then again at 4:39..... JUMP JUMP JUMP JUMP!!!!

From hipstamatic on the iphone

Sorry. We are busy these days. Work has mostly taken over 12 hours a day 6 days a week. And then there has been a cold. Oh yah and did we mention a wedding is less then 2 months away and the dress still isn't done?

Today sucks.
First my cramps start in the wee hours of the morning so I didn't sleep great. Now I'm functioning in a drugged haze which is never great.

I finally get moving and decide to get something done so I head up to my sewing room. I turn on my laptop happy to watch some tv shows while I sew.
But NOOOO...

I had the icon of death.
The file folder with the question mark in the middle. DEAD HARD DRIVE.

And in this drugged haze what upsets me more then the dead laptop. The fact that I can't watch the $4.00 worth of 30 rock episodes I downloaded last night. HOW UNFAIR. Itunes I hate you. I then proceed to spend 30 minutes on the phone with apple - not to fix my computer - but to find out how I can get my $4 back OR download the tv shows again. I still don't have the solution to this.

I get over that and now I decide to go pay our utility bill. YAY FUN. but Oh the mail is here. and OH a letter for me from my car dealership. OH YIPPEE! A safety recall on my car!!!! YIPPEE!! Oh yah and did I mention it is trying to snow? YIPPEE YIPPEE YAY!


I took my computer in. All is lost but I can get a new harddrive for $200. Safety recall I'll deal with tomorrow.

I'm going back to bed before something else goes wrong today.

Not much to report. Unemployed - hopefully not for too long...
Working on the wedding dress. Wish I could post pictures but that would ruin the secret. I sort of had the skirt part on today and decided I need to take the whole thing apart. BLAH. Not fun. It takes me 3 hours to sew one layer together. There is 7 layers. It is simple but because it is simple I can tell when it is WRONG.
I did lose 10lbs just before Valentines day so I decided to reward myself by taking it easy for a few days and eating valentine treats. I would be right back on track BUT I hurt myself doing my wii bootcamp exercises yesterday. Something went POP when I was doing my reverse crunches but it was the last exercise yesterday so I didn't really notice it. Today it hurt quite a bit and now hurts when I walk up the stairs. BLAH. How can I keep working out? It is the leg that wears the monitor for the wii - not sure if it will work if I switch legs so I can take it easy on that leg....
It's the same injury I got doing real boot camp a few years ago. My leg just kind of pops out of my hip joint and pulls the muscles... Nice...
Oh well.
I'm feeling kind of down these days for no good reason. All I figure is it is the weather (it was freaking cold today) and I'm always worried inbetween jobs about when the next job will come....
I should go to my sewing room... or maybe to bed.

Had my first fitting of my mock up for my wedding dress today. IT'S WORKING! Yay! Thank goodness. I'm a little freaked about the whole thing.
A) don't usually make things for me, or things that actually have to fit someone properly
B) usually have someone telling me how they want me to sew it - I don't have to think for myself
c) usually have another design I am copying not winging it like I am now....

But so far so good. That includes a thumbs up from Cathy - one of the bridesmaids.... (she pinned me in)

I wish I could post pictures but that would ruin the surprise. I am taking some though! Don't worry...

Not much else is new. Working. Alot. So is the dictator. We are tired.

Also dieting - you know - wedding and all - down 7lbs since the 1st. Was supposed to be 8 lbs this week but that last pound eluded me. Maybe next week.... We like to pretend it is because I am building muscle mass with my new wii work out. Aside from the fact I can barely walk after one of the work outs I'm not so sure that is true.

sorry I am so lame posting.....
