Kinda sad...

I feel like such an idiot right now. I just found out that none of the Henry Coker clan is coming to Utah, several of people from Alex's side aren't coming up and I'm beginning to feel like having a reception in Salt Lake is stupid and pointless. As stupid as it sounds, I'm sad I won't get my song. There is, what has become a tradition in our family, a song that is sung at each wedding by the cousins. I won't have any cousins there. Wow, that freaking sucks. I understand why each of them can't be there but it just really bites. I hope I have more than 20 people show up, at this point, not so sure.

Tomorrow is my birthday. It will be the first time I've worked my birthday in several years. Alex, Mom, Dad and I are going to go eat at New York Pizza and Pasta after work. For that I am excited. I love that little place, just a whole in the wall place that has really good food. Nothing great or grand, but that's how I roll.

Saying No

I kind of suck at saying no. Last Sunday one of the sisters in the ward who was supposed to teach today asked me to teach for her since she wouldn't be here. It was my week to teach in sunday school and I think there must be some sort of malfunction in me that makes it hard to say no so I told her I would teach in relief society as well. In all fairness, I didn't tell her that I was teaching in sunday school. I've become rather fond of teaching Gospel Essentials but Relief Society is still a bit overwhelming. Today marks the whole second time I've taught in Relief Society. People said that I did a good job and I feel that over all I did pretty well.

I was supposed to start the rehab on my back tomorrow but I changed the appointment to tuesday so that it only affects 2 of my work days. I am really excited about starting. I did the dishes this evening and I would like to note that it was the first time in a long time in which my back didn't hurt standing there. That is freaking AWESOME! Hopefully once I start, I'll be able to be done with the majority of the rehab by the end of the year, first part of next year. Just in time to move....hopefully.

We got our first 2 RSVP's today!!! It was so exciting until Alex realized when had absolutely no idea who they came from. Who sends things without a return address!? What if it gets lost in the mail????? Lucky for me and my amazing ability to narrow the list down as to who it came from I was able to figure out the culprits. Ok, it's still exciting. Linda actually called me lastnight and said "Do you know why I'm calling?" She sounded so excited and I really had no idea and she told me she got the invitation in the mail and had filled out the RSVP to send back. She also went and bought a new dress and I am just so excited!

I thought I should write this down. I had a good day at work today. Those seem to be so few and far between these days. One of my dealers from San Francisco came into town and there were 3 of us from my office that went to lunch with him. It was definitely an enjoyable experience. Much better than the last time I went to lunch with a dealer. I had salmon which was a first for me. I really enjoyed it. It was blackened and seemed to be cooked just right.

Beginning Monday I get to start the rehab part of my chiropractor visits. They say it's really uncomfortable the first couple of weeks. I must say that I am actually excited. The mere fact that I'm starting a program to make my spine go back the way it's meant to be so my back doesn't hurt all the time is awesome! Ask me on Monday how I feel, might be singing a different tune, but right now it's good.

2 months and 2 days

Yes, I am counting. I can't wait to marry Alex but I also can't wait to be done with planning. Somedays it feels like we'll never get to November and others it seems like it's coming way too fast. Last weekend we spent our saturday registering at a couple of stores and stuffing invitations. Today, we ended up doing more wedding stuff. I'm sure the next several of weekends in the coming couple of months will be filled with wedding stuff.

I keep crossing my fingers we'll be able to move to North Carolina. I really feel drawn to Charleston but not sure if that's just me or a prompting from the Spirit. Alex was in Dallas for training and the DFO (one of the financial guys at headquarters) was there and has heard we're looking to move. Alex is supposed to give him a call this next week. I hope he has some good news for us. I was looking at the price of homes out there and I'm shocked at how low they are. They're cute little homes and I would love to be able to move into a home instead of an apartment. I've done the apartment thing and really would love to have a space of our own. We'll see what Heavenly Father has in store for us.
