Blog Addiction?

47%How Addicted to Blogging Are You?

Kinda what I figured since I haven't been blogging all that much the last 6 months or so. I just am not as creative as others in regards to what I blog about and how I guess. For me it is just like keeping a journal, but unfrotunately my life is not that interesting. I do like keeping my friends up to date on what's been happening in my life.

So as you all know, I have been preparing for a wedding. We have a JP, I have a dress, George bought a nice black pin stripe suit last weekend, and we have food and a cake on order. We are going out a bit later to pick up my wedding band, which is probably the last most important thing we have to do. We only bought a wedding ring for me since it is George's wish to wear his father's wedding ring. I know how much that means to him and it really doesn't bother me that he's worn it during part of his previous marriage. The way I look at it, it is a family heirloom and not something that Donna bought for him so I am perfectly ok with him wearing it again. He is such an honorable guy, he didn't want to insult me by asking if I minded but I could see how happy he was when I asked him if he wanted to wear it again. He's been carrying it around with him on a chain for well over a year, and it needs a little polishing, but it's in great shape. This man gives me everything and anything I want and asks for very little in return so I am not about to deny him what makes him happy. He was very close to his father and he is very much like him. I know Edgar is looking down on us and smiling, mostly because George is finally marrying a girl with Canadian heritage. LMAO

I am also going shopping for a pair of shoes but if I don't find something better than what I already have, then that's ok, I won't be barefoot. I cannot walk in heels so I am looking for something that has a low heel. The pair I have are flats but I would like a little height if I can find something that I can walk in. Since the wedding will be at our home, I will probably slip back into my slippers after all the formal festivities anyway.

We had no idea when planning this day that it was Super Bowl Sunday. George's brother reminded us of that fact when we called him last week. The game doesn't start until sometime after 6pm and all of the formalities will be over by then so everyone can just hang out and watch the game afterwards if they want to. We had no idea we would be hosting a Super Bowl Party this year! Leave it to plan a big event during another big event.

Everything is falling into place nicely. I am excited, but I think our daughters are more excited. They have been in touch with each other via MySpace, making plans and discussing how happy they both are. This makes me happy. Sara has always wanted a sister and she now has one with Nicole. It's nice to see our kids becoming family with one another. They have agreed to be our official photographers so I should have plenty of pictures to share with you. Nicole is a professional photographer and she said she will use her big Nikon to capture the happy moments.

That's about it for news on this end. It is a really nice day outside but the wind has picked up a bit and it is going to get quite chilly here later today. As long as the sun is shining and we aren't getting any snow, I am happy.

Oh a quick update on the kids and their accidents. Jessie is doing well. She seems to be all recovered now and bought a used car last weekend to get around in. She is back to work and school.

Jon isn't faring as well. He had to go to Boston to get several fragments of glass removed from his eyelid, and that surgery went well. he has since had the stitches removed and his eye looks much better. He will be out of work for about a month due to his broken leg. He's getting around ok with a walking cast but has a lot of pain in the leg so he stays off of it as much as possible. The older couple who hit him, has no insurance so Jon's insurance company is footing the bill for all of this. Jon was going to sue, but they are elderly and live on a fixed income. They also have several medical issues and will have an enormous bill from the week or so they both spent in the hospital after the accident. Jon is without wages for the duration but he's young and relatively healthy and feels it would be useless to persue a lawsuit. He's a good kid...always thinking of others. So I think he is just going to suck it up and deal with what's been handed to him. He and George are out right now looking for a truck for Jon. Hopefully they have some luck today.

I really should get the laundry in the dryer and get the bathroom cleaned. I've been putting it off for a few days but I really can't do that any longer. Have a great day!

Don't underestimate your blog. I enjoy reading about you and your ever growing family. It's nice to hear how well things are going for you.

Hey, a Super Bowl party will be fun. :) I hope you and George have a wonderful life together. Enjoy the celebrations of the day and have a great time.

Jon sounds like a wonderful, caring, young man. It's nice to hear there are still a few in this world. I hope things get better for him soon.

Have a great day, a great weekend, and a happy wedding day. *hugs*

Imagine if it were the Pats playing in the SB this year? What a party that would be!

I'm glad everything's coming together nicely for the wedding. :)

And I'm glad Jessie is doing well, and that John is on the mend.

A little side note to my last post...we found out today that the man in the van that struck Jon's truck was very seriously injured and will be in a vegetative state for the rest of his life. Jon feels very lucky to be alive and is counting his blessings.

AliceKay said...

Oh wow, Lainie. That's terrible news. Jon is lucky he wasn't seriously hurt like that. So sad.

Alice and Chicago are right, dont underestimate the value of your words :)
