      Oh and Ann if you want to help out you sure can come be our DJ!! We can't afford one so we are renting the equipment.
      ummm, if i am your DJ you'll likely have to listen to an array of 80s pop songs ... i LOVE those!

        I'm so sorry to hear about all that stress! Its always at the worst times that things break... I know you guys will get through this, and as others have said, this will definitely make you stronger.

          Everything will work out so hang in there. Can you ask the parents for some money to help out until the wedding? Hopefully, you will get some bucks from that to help ease the financial situation for a bit.

            Thanks girls! Thing have gotten worse but we are working through it. We need another $500 in work just to get up to code. Chris is out trying to get things figure out right now. Uugh.
            Yes we sure can get money from his parents but his mom isn't the sweetest thing and may hold it against us later.

He is a little bit better if it is a project we work on together but I am so much calmer about stuff (well, that sort of stuff, I only freak about wedding stuff ; )) I now delegate him to moving stuff out of rooms so I can paint them...much easier than him breaking shit (esp. now that a lot of shit in the house is now my shit) because he spilled a little paint. He isn't allowed to do projects unless I'm around! Although he did surprise me by painting part of the front porch!

              Sorry about the hijack there!

              Soon I will get to post wedding pics, figure I should get some more Philip in first!

                Stephanie, I was thinking about this while I was trying to sleep last night. What if you took out a little loan? Like maybe for a thousand or something? Maybe you could go through a credit union and find one with good rates. When i first moved on my own, i had nothing and had to get a loan to pay for my security deposit and rent. I know that it sucks to owe money on a loan but it sucks worse to owe money to people that hold it over your head. I will pray for you and your situation. Let us know if we can do anything for you! love, amanda
                My favorite type of vacation, a relaxing one!

                  Stephanie, I'm so sorry to hear about this. Financial issues REALLY suck, I know. You two are in it together and no matter what happens you'll still have each other (sorry, is that sappy?). Let us know if we can help in any way!

                    aw stephanie, i'm sorry to hear this...isn't that always the case i agree about a loan - easier than having someone hold it over your head.

                    i also agree about ikea furniture...although our solution is for me to put it together while keith watches.
