I am just full of drama right at the moment. The hurricane drama is still ongoing -- my roommates' mom and dog are still here, they may have to stay here for quite a long time (on the bright side they're both pretty awesome); my parents still don't have power, but will they come over to my house, where there are lights and A/C and internet? No, they will not. ("That's okay, honey, we'll just stay here and suffer.") My gallbladder has ramped up its efforts to make me insane, but I get the last laugh because this Friday I'm having it removed (but they won't let me keep it in a jar, I asked). And I am getting married in May and keep driving myself crazy by reading magazines that give me helpful tips like, "Be sure to schedule your consultations with your stationer well in advance!", which I find mildly hilarious because I don't think my stationer, Kinko's Copies, and I will be having a lot of personal interaction, but which stresses me out anyway because apparently I was supposed to start consulting with my stationer like three months ago.

So basically this post is a roundabout way of saying two things:
1. I have to have surgery and frankly I am freaked out about it, even though it's just about the least invasive surgery you can have done and my doctor promised me I'd be able to go to class the next Tuesday and everything, and
2. Holy crap, planning a wedding is hard. (Today I bought a dress! And a veil! And a highly complicated strapless-bra-from-hell thing! Now I just need to do EVERYTHING ELSE OH LORD.)

Oh, that and
3. I love having a dog. Even if he's only a temporary dog. He's outstanding.

Good luck keeping your gall bladder. Try bribing someone.

Don't let the wedding planning process stress you out. I wish I hadn't.

Ask if they will give you pictures! That's the next best thing to getting the gall bladder in a jar. When I told my surgeon I was a medical librarian, he asked if I wanted pictures. I still have 'em somewhere. Everyone thinks it's gross, but I think it's pretty funny.

Don't worry about the surgery. You'll feel so much better when it's over.

Wedding: How wonderful! Surgery: How terrible! I hope everything goes well.

Wedding - go for what you and fiance want - do it your way. We did and had a blast and I hope our guests did (Shemumbles - please tell me it was somewhat fun even if tiring).

Surgery - yick but hopefully will be helpful for future :) Good Luck!

Wedding: I am so happy for you! ♥

Surgery: I am not particularly happy for you in the slightest! I hope it goes okay, and I hope there are sweet pain pills as part of the deal.

Hang in there, my friend. It'll all turn out. Things always do, maybe not in the way we expect them too, but as long as you don't reach enlightenment, you'll have another go round to try this all again.
