I finally did it.......

.....I think this is my first day playing hokey from work.  Work has been most unpleasant this week, I mean really awful to the point of my feelings being hurt.  That is not an easy thing for me to admit, since I like to think of myself as a strong person and not easily bothered by what other may say or think.  But work as finally pushed me over my limit.  I can't take it today, nope, just can't.  I think I disappointed Kevin a bit since we talked about it last night and I said I would just go in a deal with it.  But I woke up this morning with an upset stomach and I a sure it was the thought of going in to that place. 
So, todays agenda is to look for full time employment else where, somewhere better suited for me.  Somewhere that people don't talk about me for being me.  Somewhere not so stuffy and republican and judgmental.

So, as I raise my coffee mug, here's to Friday.  Hope the work week was better for you than it was for me.  Wish me luck on the dreaded beginning of my new job search.

Calling Good Thoughts............

Good Morning Live Journalers,

I need all your good thought, good karma, prayers anything that generates positive energy this morning around 10am. 
I have to go to court for a car accident Emma and I were involved in a little over 2 years ago.  We were rear-ended twice heading south on I-5.  The insurance company for the other parties have not wanted to pay out.  I live with the left side of my neck and upper back always being in a dull pain.  The only rewarding thing so far that has come from this, was that I met and became fast, wonderful friends with Aine.  She was my massage therapist after the accident.

Anyway, last time we met with the other parties, they tried to profile me as a lesser person that does not deserve to receive any payment or reward.  I think very differently.

Keeping hopes up that it goes really well today, I am nervous, I don't like being put on the spot, and I am sure I will today.

Also, if anyone is going to be near the Washington Mutual Tower this afternoon and wants to grab a coffee, let me know.  My cell is 425-591-6143.

Have a good day everyone.

wedding ideas

Okay, I am not the most creative person out there, so, I would love some ideas or web sites to look at for wedding things.  I like things to be non traditional and I have no idea where to start.

The Weekend

Well, as my previous post said, I am now engaged.  I knew since I first met Kevin that I would spend my life with him.  We have quite a history, even in the short time we have known each other.  We meet for the first time at the end of July 2006.  Our first date was a walk around Greenlake on a warm Wednesday night.  After the walk, we decided to sit on a bench with a great view of the lake and talked until the sun set.  I started falling in love with him that night.  I have always thought of that bench as our bench.  We started our romance very fast and slowed it down almost just as fast.  It was confusing, but I still knew he was the one for me.
So, after months of casual dating each other, last June Kevin told me he did not want it casual any more.  We moved in together at the end of July and really have a great life together.  We are very lucky that our girls have taken to each other just like Sisters and that our families just fit perfectly together.
This last Saturday, after my Brothers Wedding, Emma went to my families house for the weekend and Kevin and I took Clara to Greenlake to go paddle boating.  It was such a great night for it.  The weather was perfect, the boating was a good work out for the legs, etc.  After we took our boat back Kevin suggested that Clara take out picture on our bench since it was such a beautiful night.  I never pass an opportunity like that up, so we walked that way.  There was a fellow sitting there, who looked like David Crosby, only thinner, so we walked toward the water and waited for him to leave.  We gave Clara the camera and sat down, while I was getting ready for the picture, Kevin pulls out a ring, tells me he loves me very much and asked if I would be his bride.  WOW.....of course I said yes.  The pictures below are the ones Clara took of the moment.  She was awesome, she knew about this the entire time and kept it a secret.  I could not be happier, I get to spend the rest of my life with the man I love more than anything.  I am a very lucky woman. 
Thank you to everyone for the Congrats on Saturday.
Yes, I will marry you.

And she woke up happy....................

Good Morning!  I love this morning, no specific reason why, it is just a good morning.  I had a cavity filled already and can still smile :)  I got to skip Emma to Ballet practice and come home to make coffee.  After ballet, we are off to enjoy the day.

Have a fantastic Saturday!

Games and the girl

Played Mancala with Emma last night.  It was a blast, I love watching her concentrate with her tongue sticking out.  Cuteness was abounding.
