Krazy's Wedding

Wedding, wedding, wedding!!

That's all I seem to hear anymore! I think I'm losing it. Of course, at the beginning of the engagement I was so excited to plan our wedding. Seriously, I have no clue how anyone could stand to be around me (thanks for hanging in there with me guys!). I feel bad for MIL. She had to not only listen to me, she had Krazy to listen to, as well.

As soon as Fiance & I found our venue, my picture perfect wedding came to my head effortlessly. I knew my colors, decorations, feel, music, outfits, everything. Krazy was a different story. While I had colors picked out, and was trying on every dress at David's Bridal, Krazy wouldn't pick colors til she found her dress (to be honest, I don't think she ever went dress shopping in person) and wouldn't pick a dress until the next Hailey's Comet came and the President did the Funky Chicken.

Krazy and I didn't talk much about our own weddings to each other. I don't know about her, but I didn't tell her much details because she had this tendency to try and one up people. We chose June, and suddenly she tried to change her August wedding to May. HAHAHA, nice try girlie, but FIL said "no" to you. She may have had the Church reserved, but that's A-ok by us!

Then came a quiet period. No biggie, I was too. I didn't want to get burned out too early on planning so I took a break for the summer. So I figured Krazy did, too. Ooohh, she took a break alright. I wish I remembered how we found out. Our family told us one helluva story, and one of my close friends told us the same story. Grab some popcorn and sit back. This is what daytime television is made of:

Krazy was in a local wedding (not too much of a shocker considering the bride had more bridesmaids than Fiance has cousins (trust me, thats a lot!). Krazy, Bonehead, and their daughter had great time, drinking, eating, and dancing. I guess Krazy got a little too crazy and let that dress go to her head. Come to find out, Krazy gave her number to another wedding go-er and not with innocent intentions. No one in the family had seen them "over" so fast! I don't think it was 1wk before they had their things split and moved out. It was odd, there felt like the family was stronger then. All supporting our Middle Bro. She's never been welcome in TheInlaws home since.

Middle Bro spent a long time living with his parents, but him and Roomie (ExRoomie?!) are both living together down the road from us. Krazy's been absent from our lives for the most part. Middle Bro meets Krazy to pick up his daughter, but she's never been around Fiance and I.

But ya know, it's pretty damn awesome when I get a phone call from a friend with the best damn information about Krazy...

Long Story for a Long Family Trip

Jumping a few months ahead, we reach the summer. Last summer was abnormally chilly (80s, not 90s or 100s), but we were in our only heat wave and it was finally hot. The InLaws invited all the kids and significant others to the place they were staying at, at Lake Chelan. Roomie and Bossy were in Montana for some softball tourney. So Krazy, Bonehead, and their daughter drove up to our house, and we all loaded up in our truck (guys, I love our truck. The back seats recline a little!) with the boat in tow, and we drove up to Chelan.

The condo was a little cramped with 6 adults and a 2yo. We settled in for the first day and everyone  was getting a routine down. We were all pumped to go out on our small boat the next day. The weather was supposed to be hot with hint of a breeze.

The next morning lunches were made, hair was pulled back, everyone had swim suits on. Krazy was going for the neon 90s look and was doing that stupid self portrait every girl seems to do on Facebook.

To MIL and I, it appeared that Krazy was pumping herself up to go boating. She's never been on our boat. Her daughter scares VERY easily. Just put a sleeping dog next to her and watch the reaction. You'll agree if you've seen it. Anyways, Krazy is same way. She'll pretend she's excited to try something new but we all know it'll be hell. We weren't even going to do anything fun anyways. There were too many people (3 with very bad backs, let alone the toddler), so all we were going to do was putt around and do very easy tubing.

We make the long trek down to dock and wait our turn to unload (it was our first boat launch with only ONE ramp). It was still early-mid morning and we were all sweating. It was going to be a hot one and that warm, clear lake water was going to feel good!

This water is crystal clear. That was probably about 40-50feet deep. Freaking beautiful!

We go out to a clear, calm spot to float (about 10-15mins out) and Krazy starts complaining. She's hot. She doesn't feel good. I mentally tell her that she shouldn't have sprayed the entire tanning oil bottle on her before we got out here. Everyone tells her she's probably dehydrated and too much sun (really?!). Krazy refused to drink water. Refused to dip her feet in the water to cool down. Fiance asked if she wants to go back to the dock and go back to the room. She said yes, but didn't want everyone else to be dragged down with her. Fiance very loud and clear when he assured her, no the group wasn't going in. Just her and our niece. :)

Ya know, it was amazing how much more fun we had once she went in. Everyone stayed hydrated and got in the water when they needed a quick cool down. We kept our heads covered. We tubed. The boat took on some more water than normal BUT we had way more weight in her than normal. But she ran wonderful!! FIL and Bonehead were incredibly sore after tubing (bad backs) but you can tell they had a blast.

We all went out for dinner that night. It was a fancy place and if we lived closer, I would've loved to get married there. I simply cannot explain how beautiful it was. Everyone was on their best behavior. Except Krazy got a little too loopy and didn't try very hard to keep the mouth filter on. I can't remember exactly what was said but there were a few times MIL and I exchanged concerned looks.

After that day, Krazy was quiet. She slept most of the way home. She didn't say anything really brow-raising. But she never seems to stay that way.

A Change of Epic Proportions

As of today, I have 3 days until Easter is here, and Lent is over. For me, this means I can have my Facebook account back (yay!). Ya'll on Twitter know I'm beside myself with excitement and something huge is here. But it's so much bigger than Twitter. This needs to be logged in a book somewhere. No better place than here, right?

So I'm taking a 'break' from work (because for first time in over a week I actually have work to do) to bring this most glorious news:


I, Dory, and Fiance, are pleased to announce that our home will soon be housing two humans, not three!! [Insert fabtastic happy dancin here] Roomie got an awesome apartment with an amazing view (better than ours!) just a few blocks down.

I cannot express how estatic we both are to finally be able to live together, alone. It'll be hard financially for a bit, but I think it will the most gratifying broke we'll ever be.
