Does seeing a wild rabbit in your back garden count as good news? I was having tea in the kitchen, and suddenly saw it skip across the patio, then it sat under the tree, and took a long one hour nap. SOOO cute! This must be how it feels to see a real unicorn...lol One of the perks of living in the suburbs, w00t!

Okay, so this is big news for me because I had QUITE a scare yesterday!

Over the summer we found out that a close friend of my brother's was pregnant. Like, we're talking so close they're like siblings. He was in a car accident in high school and she was one of a few people bringing over cards and gifts and Taco Bell for him, and they're still close after high school and college. She told everyone, like, four months late because she was afraid everyone would dump her once they found out she was pregnant (no one did). And the dad is a deadbeat. They got involved when he was mid-divorce and basically is the only one who DID dump her once he found out.

And then on top of that she had (if I remember the word right) Preeclampsia, which is basically a medical condition characterized by blood pressure so high that she was getting at risk of having a stroke while pregnant. The only way to get rid of it is to have the baby, so she was admitted into a hospital and they kept an eye on things, trying to just keep her blood pressure down until the baby would have the best chances after it was born, and eventually decided to induce labor and the baby was born prematurely on Halloween.

So we've all been trying to be really supportive, and my family's been helping her's with the baby shower. It's been scheduled for November 14th for a while, because that's also the mom's birthday. So I asked for it off waaaaaaaay back in August, and we just got the next week's schedule (which for me is Friday-Thursday because theatres decided to plan around when movies come out) this past Tuesday.

I checked it after work, and it was fine. I was just schedule for the morning meeting, which doesn't interfere with the shower, so I was fine. THEN I checked before bed, and suddenly I had a 4-11PM shift for Saturday night!

So I had to talk to the manager in charge of the schedules the next day, and I was stressing about it all day. I had a 3PM-11PM shift, and the manager got off at 5, so I only had a two hour window and there were only two gaps between theatres that were big enough for me to do that. BUT I finally got into the office and talked to her, and it turns out it was a mix-up and she didn't mean to give me the evening shift, soooooooo

I GET TO GO TO THE BABY SHOWER!

And I'm so excited because, on top of wanting to be there for this friend with all the shit she's had to go through, I've also been getting really tired of missing practically ALL the big, fun things my family does. First it was because I was away at college, and now I'm basically open all week for work and it keeps conflicting, and I was terrified I would have to miss something else

BUT I DON'T

I FOUND MY WEDDING DRESS!! I'm so excited. :D It is completely different than I thought I was going to get. XD but I am in love with it. Plus side it wasn't insanely expensive either. The total package counting dress, veil, and belt was under $2000. \o/ My dad was relieved that's for sure. Lol So was I to be honest I didn’t want to spend a fortune on a dress and accessories that I am going to wear one day.

I want one of those sooo bad but I'll probably wait to ask for one until we have a house. Not a lot of storage space in our apartment.

Thank you all. I have even more good news, actually. I retook my assessment test for college because I was really in a bad place when I first took it so I scored really low, but now I'm ready for English 101 and Math 70. I'm content. :)
