Finding myself with little extra time

So, I'm trying to keep up with everything and one of the several areas being shorted is this blogger world.

Let me just give you a small glimpse of my week and you might understand why:
8:15 appointment
9:15-12:15 I'm home working on invitations or something wedding related
1-9 I'm at work
9:15-10:45 I'm meeting with the woman doing the flowers for my wedding
9-5 I'm at work (another day in audio books)
5:40-7:30 I'm at home working on invitations and eating dinner
7:30-8:45 Bible study
9-9:45 First wedding dress fitting
9-5 I'm at work (I get to shelve art)
5:40-6:20 I'm at home stamping and sealing 90 invitations
6:30-7:45 I have dinner with a friend
8-9ish I shop a bit for the next day
9:30-11:30 I finish working on invitations (they are finally ready to mail!!!)
8-12 I'm at work
12-3:30 I'm driving north (I do stop for 30 minutes to eat some lunch)
3:30-6:30 I'm at J's apartment cleaning and preparing a surprise birthday meal
6:45-11:15 I'm with J--he is very surprised to see me as he thought he'd be spending the evening alone
11:15-2 I'm driving south (I was so tired that a couple hours into the trip I stopped to get an iced coffee at McDonald's and it was just awful, I barely drank any of it)
8:50 I wake up from a dream where I'm receiving a repeated shot in the arm, in the same small hole
10 I'm at the doctor for a follow-up look at my eardrum (it looks good!)
10:15-11:15 I sit at Starbucks and sip an iced vanilla coffee (this one is very good and not too sweet) and work on Bible study
11:30 appointment
1-5 I'm at work where, not surprisingly, my patience is wearing thin

Now it's 6:15 and I'm resting a bit before dinner, after which Mom and I are heading to Hobby Lobby to look at wedding decorations and then the fiance will make an appearance at my doorstep sometime around 9 p.m. Tomorrow holds a similar schedule to the rest of the week.

Is it any wonder that blogging isn't much of a priority?!

Today was my first day back since Thursday and I only made it 6 1/2 hours before I had to call it quits. Too tired. Too many sounds that all collided in my ears that aren't up to par. However, I did work and that was good.

Now I'm trying desperately to print my invitations and the printer and my ineptness is causing me frustration. I'm going to get these out!!! The wedding is only 7 1/2 weeks aways, I can't believe it.

Around 4 a.m. Sunday morning, my right eardrum decided to rupture for the third time in my life. It happened quickly, although I did have a cold virus working on me for a couple days previously.
Now, if you've never had this happen, it's a very annoying experience (great pain before the rupture and then relief when the pressure is gone and then the ear drains and you can't hear out of it, all in all, not fun), but it happens, so I just have to go with it.
My sweet, caring fiance was in town over the weekend and he drove me to the immediate care center so I could get antibiotics and hopefully stop the spread of infection. He then coddled me as much as he could before he had to drive back home. Today my nephews were over and I told C that my ear was broken inside--he is always concerned about ouchies--and he took a cold pack and held it against my ear and rubbed my cheek gently and said, "all better, all better." So, I'm getting gentle and loving treatment to help me heal as quickly as possible, but I'm still laying low for the next couple days as I have very low energy, plus I can only hear about 60% of my normal hearing. I have unintentionally had a 5-day break from work. Honestly, I'm ready to go back. I'm tired of lying around in bed.
I'm praying for a speedy recovery of the ear and that there won't be any permanent damage. Every time it happens I fear that the ear is just getting weaker and therefore a possibility for hearing loss. Kind of scary.

Password hint

For anyone that read my previous post, I realized I could have posted a little hint for you to figure out the password yourself. So, here's the hint, and if you still can't get it, I'll be happy to give to you straight up. :)
Hint: combination of our names shortened. Not too hard, right?

I have set up a wedding web page for J and I on For security reasons I made it so guests would need a password to view all of the wedding detail pages, as well as to sign the online guestbook. If you want that password, please leave a comment, or drop me an email. I'm happy to share it with you!

Thursday update

It may seem that I have dropped off the face of the blogging world...I unintentionally took a small hiatus. My mind's been crazy busy with wedding logistics and every time I think about updating I feel like it will only be about that and there really is more going on in my life besides planning.

For instance:
I watched two movies this past week--P.S. I Love You and The Jane Austen Book Club. I really liked both of them, although the second one definitely had more questionable material. The first one made me sob. The second one made me want to read more Jane Austen.
Since Sunday I have completed reading two books as well as finished up reading another--The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio; Ellen Foster; The Man Without a Country. Of those, I would only really recommend the first title. The fiance read it awhile back and told me I must read it. The movie based on the book is quite good as well.
In the past two weeks I've packed up 15 boxes of books to be moved north and I still have three full shelves of books. J and I need to be finding some bookcases to house our library!

In the wedding world: I've nearly completed registering, the invitations are designed and ready to be printed, and I'm forcing myself to make final music selections this week.

I spent a couple hours lounging on a hammock this afternoon and I have to say, the weather was perfect today. It was warm, but still pleasant, not too windy, and very sunny!

I realize this is a paltry update after a couple weeks of nothing from me, but my few readers, it's all I've got for now.

Hope you too are enjoying the summer!
