Long time, no updatemy bad. With WBCs issues, and the drama Ive had to deal with at home, I just havent been around much. That being said, heres mishmash of all thats been going on around here, lately (in bullet points, so I dont bog you downits not like people read this thing, anyway)..
* Were dealing with head lice.. again.
* We thought we had found our photographer.. but, he booked another couple without contacting us.
* My youngest sister (J) has moved in.. and, will be here for Lord knows how long.
* We wanted to get a bunch of vendor booking done, last week (when Mr. H had the time off), but when all this BS started going on, it got put on the back-burner.
Now, to go into some detail:
About the lice: My sister (S) and niece were visiting both times the breakouts have occurred, so I now know where its coming from. S led me to believe that DD had passed it on, but J informed me after S had left that my niece has been battling lice on-and-off for monthslike, 6-7-8 now. As upset as I am about having to go through this again (especially in such a short amount of time!), it hurts that S wouldnt have just told me the truth. I love the smell of clean laundry, thankfully, cause Ive been doing lots of it.. and, we have enough treatments for an army, lol. No more pests for us! Needless to say, S and niece will both be checked, and/or treated before they even step foot in our house again.
About the photographer: We met with him a week ago, today, and knew as we were leaving that he was the one. Mr. H was in contact with him a few times afterwards through e-mail, and then suddenly he (the photog) stopped replying. It turns out that he booked someone else for our date, as they came up with the $ faster. He said he's "been burned" in the past with couples taking too much time with deliberating, so I can understand where he was coming from, but he definitely should have checked-in with us before jumping the gun. *sigh*.
About sister J: She has run into some troubles with her living situation (her dad basically couldnt afford rent, and did a midnight move, leaving her with nowhere to go), and is now currently residing in our office/spare bedroom. Shes been okay to deal with (so far), but shes messy and, relies on Mr. H to drive her to see friends, etc. She just had a few meetings with people to help her out (welfare, and getting back into school) recently, so were hoping itll get better as time goes on. Talks are important, as is the rent were charging, LMAO.
About vendor booking: It didnt get done (obvs.). We are, however, going to visit with some florists, tomorrow (Friday), as Mr. H has the day off.. and, maybe I can get him to finally call some officiants. The aforementioned photographer has also sent us an e-mail with photographers who are available for our date, so we have to look through them, and decide, again.. fun.
On the plus side, when S was here, both her and J put the deposits on their dresses (and, J even bought her shoes!), so theres only 1 girl left to put her deposit down (she may have already done it, though.. she hasnt responded to my e-mail, yet).
Next on my list of vendors is makeup/hair.. wish me luck!
