I've missed you girls!

I think it's probably been about a month since I last signed on. Everything is good, I've just been super busy. I picked up a part time job at the beginning of the summer. It started otu to be for extra money, but turns otu we actually need the money so I've been picking up as many hours as possible...my part time job has turned into a full time job. On top of that, I have my regular full time job, which has gotten very demanding and has not been paying me what he should be paying me, but still expects top notch work and complete availability (I work from home). It came down to it last week when I basically told my boss that if he's paying me part time I'm going to put in part time effort. He does understand and agrees, but, we'll see.....
I was also very blunt with him about my financial situation and needing to work 2 jobs. I've also looked into Bankruptcy. The lawyers were pushing me to file before we got married (which does make sense). I started the ball rolling then realized it wasn't the right option for me. It was a VERY stressful few weeks! I contacted my major credit card companies and they are working with me as far as payments and interest rates and I've set up a strict budgette...as it turns out, I'm not doing as bad as I thought I was.
We went to mexico at the end of Sept., It was wonderful! Rained the whole time we were there, but we still went snorkling and had a great time. Also got to see where we'll be getting married adn stuff. I picked out flowers and other little things.
I picked up my dress on Tuesday and our Invitations officially went out on Thursday. I did everything with no help from FI, so it took a while and all of my free time.
On top of that, I am trying to keep up with the house (at least the laundry) and keep the two dogs out of trouble...a hard task! FI has started pitching in more around the house, he's been keeping up with the kitchen and bathroom cleaning.
FI started a new job a few weeks ago. He used to work as a mechanic for DSNY (Department of Sanitation New York) but was provisional (could get let go if there were "cut backs"). He took the test to become permanent and DOT (Department of Transportation) called him for an interview and offered him a job. After his "Probation" period (about a year), he'll be permanent (they'd need an actual really really good reson to fire him, not just "cut backs").
My Bachelorette party was this past weekend (we figured to do it before the holidays started). We rented a house and did a wine tour on Cayuga Lake in NY, it's one of the finger lakes. We had an awesome time!!
I promis to try to make more time to get on here. I've just been spread pretty thin lately. I miss you all and I can't wait to catch up on at least some of what I've missed...35000+ posts are a LOT to read LOL...hmmmm, maybe I'll slack off today from the job that doesn't pay me right and just hang out with you ladies
I promise to some pics as soon as I can!
