We got him a candy apple red Fender with a whammy bar. I don't think I've ever seen my dad display such a unabashed child-like happiness. And he hasn't even play it yet! I'm going to see if I can help clear out the basement so that there is room for the new stuff. It'll be a good prod to get rid of some of the junk that just sits around there.
Other than that, life has been going on as usual. Work every day is repetitive, but comforting in its boredom.
Sis and I have been making a real effort to try new restaurants instead of going to the same old places out of fear of having a bad meal. I should be taking pictures so that I could turn my craft blog into a dining one, or at the very least give me more material to write about. Speaking of crafting, I haven't been doing anything for weeks. I have two projects that have been started and are sadly sitting around. I don't think I'll ever craft on a daily basis until I get a new place where I can organize an area for all my schtuff.
On the wedding front, I've bought my dress. It's not a "wedding gown" because I would just feel too awkward wearing one. A typical wedding dress is the epitome of everything I would never wear. My sis told me I looked adorable when I tried my fabulous frock on. All I have to do now is practice my hairstyle and lose 20-30 pounds. I have four months.
