GETTING CLOSER! WOOT!

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Great news from my sister!

I'm still hopeful for a Thanksgiving homecoming - if nothing else it looks like she'll *definitely* be home by Christmas (and her 10th birthday on Dec. 29th). Keep praying and sending those good thoughts that we don't run into any more snags or delays!

In other good news, I think I found my dress for the handfasting this week. It's in the newest Pyramid Collection catalog - whatcha think?

'Yote likes it and thinks it'll look pretty on me, so yay! Of course, I'm not ordering ANYTHING until we get closer, but I'm pretty hopeful I'll be able to fit into an 18 by May (who knows, maybe even smaller) which is the largest size this comes in. *crossing fingers and toes* OH, 'Yote finally picked out rings he liked too (that's in the Gaelsong catalog which I apparently can't get to from work - I'll have to add that photo when I get home). Not ordering THOSE for a while either, because...well remember the ring I mentioned a month or so ago that I had to stop wearing because if I shook my hand vigorously it'd fly off? The ring of HIS I've been wearing on my middle finger is just about there too - I'm starting to worry about it flying off during Zumba! Which is a good sign, but still makes me sad - I think this one I'll wrap in yarn or something so I can keep wearing it until the handfasting at least. But hey - yay for more non-scale victories!

In the not-so-great-news category, I'm fighting a migraine (yep, it's got all my pre-migraine symptoms: can't tell if I'm nauseated or hungry, chills, sensitive to smells, and of course the headache that isn't responding to copious amounts of painkillers), which means probably no Zumba today (and maybe no reading either - I'm only 200 pages from being done with Goblet of Fire too) - we'll see how I feel when I get home. Here's hoping it goes away...

Off to make my 4am phone call! Spark on, Sparkfriends!

    What a great dress! It'd be so much fun to wear...I think I'd have to twirl in it.

    Congrats on the continued weight loss success.

    Keep on, keeping on!

    *crosses fingers for Deborah*

    Love the dress. ^_^ You're going to look very witchy! ^_^ I have no doubts that you will be able to fit a size 18, maybe smaller, by time of ordering. ^_^

    Bad migraine. Go away!

    We'll all raise a glass to celebrate when Debora is FINALLY HOME where she belongs. I'm glad it's close, but you'd think folks would really try to expedite these things. The dear child is growing up FAST, for pete's sake!

    Euphrates, YOU will make that dress look FABULOUS! Can't wait to see pics of you rawkin' it!

    DAP's right, you should be able to find ring sizers at a decent jeweler's.

    Hope the migraine clears quickly. Those are NO fun at all.

    I love the dress. You will be able to get into your dress by then. I have confidence in you! I get the Pyramid catalog also, and love ordering stuff from it. I think you can buy ring sizers that fit inside the ring to make it a smaller size. Or get a good chain and wear it around your neck.

    I hope your migraine didn't last long. My mother used to get them, so I know how hard they can be on the body.

    I just checked out the Gaelsong catalog. Wow, I love it.

    Omigosh, I thought Deborah had already come home to her mother. WHY are they doing this and WHY can't that kid go to her mother before she is totally grown up?????? I"m so frustrated for her!

    oh, and nice dress. You are going to look beautiful!

    migraines are YUCKY! I had them SOOO bad for years that they NEVER went away. Seriously, I didn't even know I had them because they were always there. Man, when I cut the milk out of my diet and they went away - WOOSH! Wow! I felt like a million bucks. Now I get them every couple of years or so when I get around something I shouldn't be.

    PS - I SOO love the dress!
