Today was probably the most awkward day of my life....

For one reason or another we had to get the boy's ex wife's name off of the deed for the house.
So I called attorneys in the area and got him an appointment to get the deed rewritten then we would mail some paperwork to her and she would sign it get it notarized and send it back and everything would be fine!

Well... It just happened that shes in town for Christmas and she could come and sign the paperwork her self,

OH YEAH also they were divorced a while ago but some how they were married in two different states... (I know only in my life do these things happen)

So the boy was going to pick her up, go to the appointment, get her name off of the deed and hopefully get divorced for real and come see her dog for a bit.

Well, he got off of work early and would be here 3 hours early for the appointment

So I had to clean the entire house before they got here, tried to look all pretty but they got here EARLIER than expected so my hair was half curled and half straight.... so I just pulled it up in a pony tail and looked like crap....

The boy wanted lunch so he went to the store and left us both here alone. This could have been really bad because I'm not a fan of cheaters or her for that matter even before I met her. I'm sure that if the circumstances were different we would be friends but they weren't and making small talk was impossible for the 30 mins he was gone.

The hardest thing was seeing them sitting on the couch with the dog in between them like they would have sat back when they were married.... I felt like the third wheel with my fiancee and his ex wife...

I'm going to stop rambling now they've been gone for 30 mins and I still feel awkward...

oh yeah and after venting to my mother that they werent offically divorced she called me a hussie.....

Dec. 4

Best book of 09 was definitely "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch. I had stopped reading for a while and then the boy let me borrow it to read it and I LOVED IT. I was going to lend it to my mother when she was in the hospital recovering from a surgery, but I decided a book about a man before his death was not the best thing to read while in the hospital. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a emotional roller coaster book. I'm one of those people who immerse themselves in a book and feel like you're living their life.

Best Restaurant Moment of 09!

This is a tough one...

I don't just have one but last spring every other Thursday Pat's family would get together and have dinner at his aunt's restaurant. At first, it was kind of intimidating because I didn't know anyone yet, but after a few weeks It was fun! There would always be some interesting discussion or we would be planning something (like the trip to Boston) and it was a great way for me to get to know his family!

PS.. WE GOT A NEW PUPPY! we've had her for a couple of weeks but here's a few pics!

Roxy the night we got her!

Roxy and the Christmas Tree.... this is going to be a long month...

Roxy and her big bro, Gir, playing, she follows him EVERYWHERE!

The best of 2009 blog challenge (we'll see how this goes...)

Sooooo, I'm going to try this so here goes day one!

The best trip of 2009!

I would have to say my best trip of 2009 was going to the beach with my family in August. My parents, my sister and her friend Brittany drove down the night before and stopped half way there and stayed over night. The boy, my brother, his friend Ryan and I left early the next morning. We met my aunt and uncle and their two kids at the place we were staying. We had so much fun I've never laughed so much in my life. We enjoyed awesome food, the boys caught fresh shrimp which was AMAZING. The boy made an awesome fish dinner. We also at at really good restaurants two nights. We went to the beach every day and the we couldn't have asked for better weather. This was just a trip filled with good friends good food and good fun! (and a ton of new inside jokes!)
