We’re Here!

Just a quick note to let everyone know that I am still alive. ;) I am doing this on Phil’s parents’ computer, and I am aware of the call charges accruing, so it will be short. The trip was VERY long (I’ll write about that later), but it has been wonderful to meet his family and see the countryside. I’ve been giving Phil a hard time, since he described it…

The Road to LA

Quick note from my parents’ house – we are FINALLY on our way! I have a horrendous headache, but the apartment is clean, and the car is filled with our totally enormous, extremely heavy suitcases. Tomorrow morning, early, we’ll leave for Los Angeles. Tuesday we’ll take care of my spousal visa, and Wednesday we’ll sightsee in Hollywood and go to the beach. We’re finally on our way!!!

Last Entry…We’re Off!

I’m just clearing up a few things here at work. I have my last paycheck, and my desk is clean. How sad. :( I’ve really done nothing of any use here this morning…did a lot of talking about the trip, mainly, with Shaun, Josh and Lisa. Josh is my oldest friend here, from wayway back. We came here from LA together, ages ago. I’ve know him since he was a…

Almost There…

This will probably be the last entry before we leave. I will try to find internet cafes along the way, but access for the first month is bound to be sporadic. Last night we packed our suitcases, and were appalled at how much we’re either going to have to ship, or leave behind. The clothes I can replace, but there are a lot of things that I am going to…

Married!

We did it…we’re married. I’m sure it feels just as unreal to Phil as it does to me. I haven’t been able to post because the DSL has already been turned off, so I’m posting on my lunch from work. A quick recap: May 17th: The Stag Night We went to Scandals with Eric and Janice, Shane and Karyn, and Shameron, and we had a blast. Eric and Shane arranged…

Stag Night

Last day at work before the wedding, and there is SO much to do. Tomorrow we’ll be baking cake layers, ready to be put together on Sunday morning. Phil’s mom sent us an e-card, since the phone has been turned off and she won’t be able to call. Tonight we’re having a joint stag party at Scandals, a local tittie bar, um, exotic dance club. ;) A lot of people…

Wedding Plans

I’m so upset today. We’re not having a formal wedding with groomsmen and bridesmaids, but I had asked Shaun to carry the rings for us. Shaun and I are very similar in personality and outlook, we’ve worked together for ages and been roommates; I really wanted him there. Yesterday he found out that they are sending him to Salt Lake City to train TSRs on a new program that he…

Hellspawn Computers

VERY frustrating day today. Most of the main pages on the site change on Monday, along with banners in several different areas, the homepage, etc. The site has been up and down, and no one knows why, or how to fix it. The content handler/Admin GUI that we use to work on pages in the database is toast. I’ve been surfing and stressing, stressing and surfing. I’ve eaten a bag…

Trust

Phil and I have been arguing. Naturally enough, I suppose, given the circumstances; a wedding would be stress enough for most people, but add a move to another country and you have *major* stress levels. One of the main problems, I suppose, is that I am having a difficult time trusting him. Last fall, when we’d broken up for a few months, he dated a lot of women…not just a…

Dreaming of Chapels

There is a cool property for rent, affordable, but unfortunately NOT in a town anywhere close to someplace that I could find work. It’s a converted chapel, with gorgeous arched windows and hardwood floors. From the estate agent’s site: Communal entrance hallway, staircase leading to door to entrance lobby, with staircase to galleried landing with arch window, 14′ lounge, superbly fitted kitchen/breakfast room with gas fired boiler, two good sized…
