just when you thought you knew..

we’re about to throw you for a 180 again. well.. not a complete 180.. maybe more like a 90.

but enough math analogies.

what I’m trying (badly) to say is that wedding plans for M and me have changed.. again.. but this time it’s final. for real.
(I know it’s hard to believe me when it seems like it changes every other month, but trust me this time. if you could see me, I would have my most angelic face on.)

so.. this time.. the news is that

MY PARENTS ARE COMING TO TONGA!!!!

with me. in May. I’m sto-hoked, you guys!

I can’t believe the tender mercies that have come to us to make this work out, in the form of generous angels who prefer to remain nameless and answers to prayer.

but because my parents will be there, M says the “three most important people in my life” will be there.. (including himself, of course) we have decided to go ahead and be sealed in the temple in Tonga instead of waiting till the fall in Utah. we don’t want to prolong the blessings of an eternal temple marriage any longer than necessary since my parents get to be there.

so that’s the news.

don’t worry Utah friends and fam.. we are still having a reception in Zion.. in the fall, after M’s green card paperwork processes and we are both in the states together.

(it’s gonna be a looooong summer without him. please help distract me?)

countdown to wife-dom: 64 days!

last name “up,” first name “fed”

Negative Nancy:

I don’t get my car back until NEXT Tuesday or Wednesday because apparently repairs are more extensive than they thought. poor Victoria… 😦
it cost $2000 more than they originally estimated.. over $4800 in total. (I pay a $500 deductible, but who knows what happens to my premiums?)

I am a disgruntled employee.. and so are my co-workers. I sat through maybe an hour long vent sesh today at work listening to my co-workers be angry. burnout, nit-picky criticism, and being wayyy under-compensated don’t create happy feelings. I am officially actively looking for something new, so if you hear of something.. please let me know.

I shouldn’t have looked, but I did anyway.. result: last night was made up of feelings of anger, the likes of which cannot be matched by anything in my recent memory. deleted it all. any possible forms of communication are officially cut off.

I paid $210 in traffic tickets related to the above car damage today.

Wendy’s didn’t give me my chicken nuggets that I bought for lunch and I didn’t notice till I got back to the office. I threw away my unused honey mustard. sad.

linger longer is stressing me right out.

confused. confused. confused.

Positive Polly:

tomorrow I am hittin up ward ski day at Brighton directly after work till the p.m. and then hockey in my ski threads.

I have the weekend off.. and several options for fun.

my dog is the cutest and she loves me unconditionally.

photography class started again tonight.. thumbs up.

my family and friends amaze me on the daily with their level of awesomeness and degree of hilarity.

this week when the sun has been out and it gets warm in my car, I have glimpses of the summer that’s coming. and when “Boys of Summer” comes on while I drive home from work in my stunnas, I get a moment of summery bliss and it makes me smile all over.

I laughed a lot today.

Brown won Massachusetts.

it could be worse.

I know, this is kind of a lot like my last post, but… meh. it was the best way to update you on my situation. plus I think in random fragments. I was simply being representative of the thought stream. kthanks.
