Weekend Update

~ NavyGuy and I taste-tested the "jumbo Chinese buffet" in Oak Harbor for lunch on Saturday. While they have wonderful sweet and sour chicken (or since I don't use the sweet and sour sauce, "Chinese McNuggets"), I was not impressed with their chicken with broccoli. The lo mein and dessert donuts were definitely worth the drive. NavyGuy managed to eat his weight in General Tso chicken and proceeded to moan most of the drive home.

~ After recovering from his food coma, NavyGuy went flying with a fellow in his flight class. They flew down to Oregon somewhere, and he came back all hopped up on airplane happiness.

~ I had a glorious nap and did some crafting. I'll post pics later in the week.

~ On Sunday, NavyGuy discovered you can mix two different brands of pancake mix and still create tasty flapjacks. Who knew.

~ We did some shopping at Barnes and Noble and Stampadoodle, a fun paper crafts store in Bellingham. NavyGuy has a thing about being in the house for more than eight hours at a time. He tends to get fidgety and make up some random excuse for us to drive somewhere. (For instance, today the excuse was he needed computer magazines to help him brainstorm how he's going to build his next computer. "I'm out of bar soap" and "The sun is out" have also been used as arguments as to why we should go outside our beautiful house.) I acquiesed because I had a hankering for a stamping magazine and some new stamps (check and check).

~ Serious business was accomplished, despite all of NavyGuy's efforts to the contrary. The officiant who will be performing our wedding ceremony had given us a sample wedding script with different options of the language to be used in the ceremony, and we spent the late afternoon going over our ceremony language. There were many debates about how much or how little religion to include, but I'm very pleased with the balance we struck. The parents are reviewing it now, so we'll see what happens...

~ Tomorrow I'm subbing in the afternoon (sixth graders). Even more exciting - tomorrow is exactly two months until the wedding!!! (AGH!!!!!!! Too many items left on the to-do list!)

Just a word to the wise from an old married lady.
Don't expect that a wedding ring will turn your wild goose into a house pet. Just be prepared to keep up with him.

Based on your location near Oak Harbor, I am guessing you and your fiance are stationed at the same base one of my best friends from high school has been at for the past 2-3 years. He and his wife are in the process of moving right now as he is being stationed in Bahrain for a year...but what a small, small world!
