Hysterectomy is BOOKED!  August 1st.  Out of work for 6 weeks.  Yay for having it set, boo for being out of work.  Re-fi papers for the house SENT!  This enables us to pay for so many thing, including the BEACH HOUSE  http://www.beachfloridarentals.com/check-rates/4660EB/?__utma=5286560.1443298709.1329749969.1330035260.1330456222.4&__utmb=5286560.1.10.1330456222&__utmc=5286560&__utmx=-&__utmz=5286560.1330456222.4.4.utmcsr=google|utmccn=%28organic%29|utmcmd=organic|utmctr=bliss%20cottage%20fort%20myers%20beach&__utmv=-&__utmk=14523571#propertyReservationForm  See those two palm trees?  That's where I'm getting married!   Talked to an officiant, like his ideas, but ooof da, $800?!?!  I've got a list of much more affordable officiants and will start contacting them today.  Dress http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Satin-A-linegown-with-beaded-lace-T8580_Sale-Sale-Bridal-Gowns goes to the tailor tomorrow for shortening and bustling.  The website pics do this dress no justice, the champagne overskirt is so rich and lovely, the beading detail is GORGEOUS!  Corset is selected and I'll order it this weekend (it goes under the dress to hold up the girls http://www.corset-story.com/tailored-pink-silver-overbust-corset-my-114-az3.html  Have to get shoes, and my wrap for my shoulders (pool blue chiffon fastened with DH2be's grandmother's gold and pearl pin.  #1 son is definitely going to be there (apparently he will be entering the Air Force in November or December)  I've contacted #2 son, to see if he can get leave from his Air Force duty station to come (I really really want him there!)  My parents and brother and sis-in-law are just a couple towns over from the beach house, so they'll be there, and DH2be's mom and sister are going to book their tickets just as soon as we nail down a date with an officiant.  We're going to get all of this DONE, ya'll!  I'm sorry, just excited to finally see some progress happening.  I was starting to panic a little bit.

at home beginning my unpleasant preparatory exercise. Lemon flavored drink, not too bad, I guess later I won't be so glib about it. Surgery sometime tomorrow, hospital will call me sometime this afternoon to let me know when to show up. Still have to get my healthcare proxy signed by a witness...DH2be can take it to the neighbor's later today. He is coming home from a date he had last night.

came home from hospital same day (shocked!) Lost most of yesterday to pain pills and sleeping. Up and about today. cooked some eggs, did some dishes, folded some laundry, played with dogs, took a shower. Hurting, but not dying, discontinuing the Vicodin today, and going with advil and toradol for the time being. Going to get started on making my flowers for my bouquet in a few mins, if I don't take a nap.

Just wanted to give you all an update.
