I wish I could relax

I'll be happy when every weekend isn't packed with doing stuff for the wedding and general crap I couldn't get done during the week. I just want to relax! Another busy weekend on the home front and of course none of it involved running. The whole running Chicago Marathon 2008 is not looking so good. Let's see I had a crazy Saturday of trying on bridesmaid dresses with 2 of the 4 girls standing up in my wedding. We found a potential dress but of course it is over $200. So I have to check in with my Internet sites to try and get a better deal. If that doesn't work = back to the drawing board. Unfortunately I am running a bit short on time. I would love to say donezo but I am trying to be nice and get a deal for all my girls.

Next I had to get my eyes checked. What an expensive process. I really need to invest in Lasix. Honestly, I was going to do the surgery this year but thanks wedding not so much. So instead I just spent $550 on an eye exam, new glasses and a year of new contacts. Although I do love the new contacts. Not a fan of my new glasses though. I felt pressured to make a decision. At least they aren't as bad as the ones I picked out in 3rd and 6th grade. Both very horrible decisions (though I thought hot pink speckled pair and bright blue pair you were awesome back in the day). Currently I just go for the think black nerdy pair of glasses or as some refer to sexy librarian. Either way my prescription is so bad I have to get the thick frames to sort of hide the thick lenses. Very hot.

This week finds me crazy busy once again - traveling 4 days out of 5. But I am looking at March (and at my 29th bday coming in 2 short weeks - ahh!) and there doesn't seem to be much right now thankfully. Except a couple cake tastings - yummy! March is my month to get back in the swing of things running wise. I promise it is going to happen. I was looking at myself in the mirror today while trying on new glasses - it has to happen. Double chin action not so good. Oh man I just want it to warm up a bit around here!

And friends if you haven't seen Vantage Point and you have an interest I say see it! We went to a showing on Saturday night. There are some minor parts that miss/don't match up/don't make sense (like a bomb went off and the camera hit the ground but 3 minutes later you are up running and the camera is working fine - seriously not going to happen but whatever) overall a fantastic,edge of your seat thriller. And short, only 1hr and 30 minutes. But from 8 points of view you need to keep it short and sweet or you'll lose the audience.

ROFLMAO!! I had some pretty sweet glasses myself back in the day. Complete with braces and I looked killer :P

I hate glasses too, so annoying LOL But what are we gonna do, huh?

Hopefully life will settle down for you a bit. Sounds like you've been crazy busy. At least enjoy the B-day! Last one of your 20's, baby! For some reason I'm looking forward to being 30 already. Does that make me a weirdo? LOL

OMG you are on a crazy busy schedule. I hope it slows down sometime soon. Take care!

I totally had the speckled glasses and thought they were the coolest. My third grade teacher nicknamed me "Tootie Frutti Glasses."

Hi Jamie

I hope the whole dress thing works out for you and I expect that somehow a fantastic dress at a truly spectacular price will just appear out of the blue.

I feel so bad when my patients come in for eye exams because it ends up costing them a fortune. If you can get me the numbers off of your contact lens boxes, I can send you an early wedding present... all I need is the type of lens (acuvue 2, ciba o2 optix, whatever), basecurve, and power. I am sure that I can get you some free samples. Honestly, I really think glasses look fantastic and make people's faces look even more interesting.. of course I am an Optometrist and biased but oh well.

The running can take a back seat for a while as you've got some really important stuff right now.. you can go back to the running anytime.

Best of luck.

I don't like glasses either. You should get O2 optix, or acucue oasys, acucue advance. They are more comfortable.
