Busy Week

Whoa...has it really been two weeks since my last post? Oh, who am I kidding. I am fully aware it's been two weeks and I'm ashamed of myself. Here are my list of excuses:

1. Lazy
2. Lack of an interesting life
3. Lazy
4. Lazy

I think that about covers it. But I don't think #2 really can be counted as an excuse. The last two weeks haven't been without drama. My dad and step-mom came in for a visit from Arkansas. Their visits are always "eventful".

My brother and his fiancee have been planning to get married for some time, but recently moved everything up to this Sunday. This may or may not have to do with the aforementioned visit. I don't know and I don't want to know. Family is coming from out-of-town for the wedding, forcing us to ditch our dust collections we worked so hard to obtain. Don't you just hate when that happens? If that's not exciting enough for ya, my birthday is on Friday and my cousin's is on the day of their wedding. I know this reads like a scene out of Sixteen Candles, but trust me. Despite all the craziness, no one's birthday has been forgotten. No drunk foreign exchange students will be found on the front lawn.

Finally, in the midst of all the chaos, my family upgraded to DSL. Realized in the long run it would be cheaper compared to paying from two phone lines and AOL. We are currently in the observational phase to determine whether or not we will keep it. I have to say I'm lusting over the fact I don't have to wait for web pages and downloads to take a gazillion hours to finish loading. No more waiting for someone to get offline so I can check emails. It's very streaking in the middle of Time Square liberating. Of course, while we have moved up in the technological world, others are miles ahead of us, but I don't care.

Happy Wednesday!

UPDATE: Despite not being meticulously planned and the slightly overwhelming heat, the wedding went well. My parents didn't kill each other. No battle royals. Sorry. My aunt and cousins came and went. I love them, but they're better in small doses. My brother and his wife are moved in to their new house. Just waiting for the electric to be turned on now which should be today. All is well....

Happy Wednesday! I'm wishing you a drama free wedding but I have never in my life been to one. Ours wasn't even drama free, but I chose to ignore the person causing the drama (monster-in-law), which took the wind out of her sails so she left early (YAY!!).

We all go through lulls in our blogging. Don't feel bad. Maybe you'll want to blog more now that you have DSL!

Well, I doubt it's going to be drama free. My divorced parents who do NOT get along by any means are going to be in the same room together. I think the last time that happened was my high school graduation eight years ago. So, it should be fun.

Enjoy the weddings and the birthdays. I have a wedding to go to in 15 days and no dress... Argh!

Best wishes to your brother! As for you, drama isn't always so bad; gives a writer new material to work with. Congrats on the internet upgrade too, Woohoo for you! Here's hoping you have the best birthday ever. :)
