Well, I am employed. I don’t know what to say about the job… let’s say the economy gifted it to me in a way only this economy can. It is commission only with no benefits. I will work 9 hour days including Saturday and Sunday. Monday and Tuesday I will have off. Believe it or not, I feel grateful for it. I actually think I will enjoy it, but I am realistic about the payout. Unbelievably, it does not bother me that this is not the path that I saw myself on, but, how am I to know there isn’t a lesson on this unexpected road that is more important than what I thought I wanted?
In other news, mom decided she wanted to have a real wedding cake (get ready to get a good dose of Mrs Held, haha). She told me today she doesn’t want a cake from Costco, but a legitimate wedding cake. Usually, these things are ordered weeks in advance. Our wedding is on Saturday. When Tomis and I walked into the Beaverton Bakery, the lady who helped us almost popped her eyes out of her head when we told her when we needed our cake. She was INCREDIBLY nice, and committed to having our cake ready by 3:30 on Saturday regardless. I have to hand it to mom though… despite the cake costing 4x’s what our initial cake would have, it was a lot of fun for Tomis and I to sit there and taste different cakes together. What we picked will be REALLY tasty, and will almost feed everyone attending, haha. I can’t wait 🙂 🙂 🙂
AND, dad hired a photographer. The photographer, Richard, called me today to ask some questions about my preferences. I can’t wait to post them on-line for everyone to see. I just wish you were all here in person. I promise we will be thinking about you all the whole time.
