time flies

First off, I would like to promise everyone that I will be popping out no babies for years to come. Despite the yearning, I have experienced possibly the best birth control in the form of 3+ years of working with quadruplets (from 1yrs to when they were 4 years old). Believe me, the only thing that keep me from losing my mind on the days that they were horrible was the fact that I got to go home. I know that it is not a cake-walk, and that with my own kids I don't get to go home at the end of the day. I'm definitely wanting to enjoy being married to Travis for a few years before we bring another person into the mix. At that time I will be overjoyed to finally get the chance to be a mother... but don't worry, we are waiting.

That being said, I will move on to other things.
First the blaise, my weekend. It was great. Every week should involve a three-day weekend. Saturday we visited 2 reception sites, one of which was the right price, but the wrong place, the second of which was the wrong price, but the right place. We had a great time visiting with my grandparent's though, and Travis got along well with my Uncle Dick & Aunt Lori, whom he hadn't met before. Exciting news (for me, at least) is that Lori has offered, and we have accepted, to make our wedding cake. :-) Both my Aunt and Uncle are chefs, and Lori's specialty is cakes. So I know our cake will be wonderful, it won't cost us a dime, and best of all it will be exactly what we want it to be.
Sunday we had dinner with Mike and Megan, which was amusing as always. And Monday we worked on the closet, finally getting it all painted, before heading over to Pat and Rochelle's to give them their wedding video (another finally). It was a nice and relaxing weekend, because while we did a lot, it was spaced out. Plus, it was great to feel really productive. All we have to do tonight is hang up the rods in the closet, and then we can start adding our clothes!
On top of that, a family friend offered their house for our wedding ceremony. They happen to live about 10 minutes from Lehigh, which is one area that we are looking in. A definite possibility.

So, I was thinking this morning about what I wanted to write today. I realized that I haven't really commented on Katrina. I realized that I don't know that I really do want to comment on Katrina. The whole event, and everything surrounding it, starting with the evacuation, thru everything since... well it is horrifying, and depressing, and is a true example of everything both good and terrible in the nature of man, and the nature of nature. Life will go on, but I honestly don't believe this country will be the same for it.
That being said (apparently my cliche for the day), there are some people out there that I feel have a much better way with words when it comes to this disaster, so I will point you to them, and you can see how I feel (or how it feels, in one case).
Blurbomat, I Lost Everything, okay that is all I could find right now, but that will do. I don't want to be thinking about this anymore right now anyway. It just gets to be too much. The looting, the dying.

Okay, perhaps it is time to call it a day. I have plenty to do before 5 anyway. Ciao.
