Life has gotten crazy hectic, much more than I imagined it would.  Between school, work, and moving in with Mr. T, I don’t have time to blog.  It was fun while it lasted, and thanks to all those who commented and brightened my day.  Good luck and happy blogging!


… I plan on writing about the Wayne Dyer presentation I went to on Wednesday.  The man rocks. 🙂  Now, back to work.  Ugh.

My “to do” list is 1.5 pages long, and by 12:00pm I had crossed out one item.

It was: Make a to-do list

Hey, it’s progress.

Did you miss me? I sure missed you! Life has been crazy since last week, what with college applications and all. Turns out, I am applying for a Master’s degree in Primary Montessori Education!! I’ve always wanted to go back to school to get a Master’s degree, and now my dream is coming true! But of course that implies applications and essays, along with planning weddings, so it’s been a crazy week. I just came back from delivering my application and now the waiting game starts! Oh, did I mention I’ve already been hired for two 2008 weddings?!?!

In other news, I did the Rosarito-Ensenada bike race in an AWESOME 3.5 hours! It was 50 gruelling miles, including a massive 800 ft. climb in a span of less than 3 miles. I think it was the most fun I’ve had with my clothes on in a VERY long time! I can’t wait to do it again in September!!!

I found out today that one of my very close friends is pregnant! She’s been trying to get pregnant for many months, so it’s a fabulous piece of news. So now, out of my five good friends, three are pregnant (the other two aren’t married, so they’d better not be pregnant)! Can someone recommend a good “one size fits all” baby shower present? I’m at a loss…

Oh, I almost forgot! Mr. T and I celebrated the anniversary of our first date last Friday!!! Wow, I can’t believe how far I’ve come in one year. I remember I was sooooo busy with work last year, and the poor man kept calling and trying to invite me on a date. My assistant had to field my calls because the brides were driving me crazy, and Mr. T ended up talking with Mary Jane three times. I was finally able to take his call and told him, “Look, I’m available on April 20th or Thanksgiving. Take your pick.” And the rest, as they say, is history. He was such a trooper…

And finally, Mr. T is getting a new puppy tonight! Checkers, a beautiful mini red merle Australian Shepherd arrives at S.D. airport in just a few hours!!! Pictures and gushing “new mommy” descriptions to come soon.

OK, now I’m off to catch up on your blogs!!!! Thanks for not forgetting about me, all four of you! 🙂

Hi!!  How IS everyone??  I had a blast but now I am tackling two hundred gazillion e-mails…Will be back later on to post!

There’s this hill on our regular bike route, and it’s a bitch. I’ve tried climbing it three times, and each time I’ve gotten about a third of the way up before I have to get off my bike in defeat and push the damn contraption up the rest of the hill.

If you have a road bike with clip pedals, you KNOW getting off a bike mid-climb – when your vision is blurry, your lungs are heaving, your arms are shaking, and your legs are burning – is no small feat. I don’t dismount the bike as much as fling a leg out for dear life, hoping I’ll be able to lean in the direction of the unclipped foot. Sometimes, my body weight doesn’t cooperate and I feel myself slowly tipping over to the opposite side of the bike (in a really pathetic slow-motion move, complete with a guttural “Nooo-o-o-o-o-o” like in the movies), my free leg flailing like a drunken can-can girl’s. Moments later, I end up sitting under my bike, red-faced and purple-assed.

Today, however, is a special day. People, TODAY I have conquered the hill!!! YEAH, BABY!!! Torrey Pines, kiss my sore butt! 😀

I tackled the bastard head on, shutting out all negative thoughts in my head and concentrating only on the beautiful sound of my wheezing, coughing, and grunting. Biking is such a lady-like sport! When we got to the top of the hill, Mr. T was bursting with pride. He congratulated me profusely and beamed like a new father. My first words to him at the end of the climb? “Dude, you’re buying me breakfast.”

I took these questions from Inside the Actor’s Studio on Bravo.  It’s one of the few shows I miss watching…

1.  What is your favorite word?


2.  What is your least favorite word?


3.  What turns you on?

Assertiveness and kindness

4.  What turns you off?

Cowardice and prejudice

5.  What sound do you love?

Mr. T’s laugh 

6.  What sound do you hate?

A fork or knife scraping against a plate (just thinking about it gives me goose bumps)

7.  What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?


8.  What profession would you not like to participate in?


9.  If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you enter the pearly gates?

Thank you for saving a dog’s life
