Yes, it's true. I am now a married man. Wow, that's weird to type, it really is.

We're in Las Vegas still, for the night. Went to dinner with friends from LJ (the same group I proposed in front of last year, at the same restaurant), and now we're spending the night here. Have to get up early though so we can get on the road back to California.

The past few days have been an amazing whirlwind. I'm looking forward to the next few weeks. And the next 88 years!

I didn't sleep all that great last night. Woke up no less than half a dozen times for various reasons. Had to take an antacid pill at one point, then some ibuprofen, and then managed to sleep the last few hours relatively uninterrupted. But now it's nearly 10AM, and I'm up, and the day is going to slowly, but surely, start getting underway.

Today's date? May 24th, 2009.

I told Janine last night: in one year, we will be celebrating our anniversary. My way of saying "today's the day" I suppose. It sounded clever to me. But here we are, a year after things got set into motion, a year of planning, thinking, musing, stressing, and everything else that goes into making one of these things happen.

And now here we are. It's the day. Janine is getting ready to head out to the spa where she will be spending a few hours getting massaged, treated, made up, and generally being prepared. At that point I won't see her again until a little after 5PM today. At which point... well, you know what comes next.

My stomach won't really sit still. I don't want to call it nerves: it's not really the same thing. But it's something... something that makes my stomach feel like one of those trapeze acts. Suddenly it's up in the air flying around, then it lands and hangs out for a little while. Yeah, maybe that's not a very good explanation, I don't know.

It has been so good to have friends and family out. I've been trying to hang out with everybody as we go, and have really enjoyed catching up with people. I'll have to write more about that later.

I think I am going to be finished with this now and go off to do some other things... hmm... like get ready for the day.

Yes, we did. We are here. Got to see my brothers ([personal profile] togra and [personal profile] tychon) last night which was pretty darn awesome! Today a lot more people are arriving, and then the parties are tonight.

Also, I forgot to post about it, but: hell yeah! America did the right thing with the American Idol results. Seriously. This is a singing competition and, IMO, Kris can sing so much better than Adam. Sure, Adam has his own (rather lot of) talent, but he's more of an entertainer than a singer. I'm not a big fan of the screaming.

In other news, my parents should be showing up pretty soon now. Waiting for them to call! Huzzah! Busy day ahead.

Very frustrating evening. [[staff profile] mark]

Other than that, I am on call this week, as mentioned. But the remote office that normally handles the pager overnight is at an off-site, so I get to carry the pager tonight and tomorrow night. It should be fine (pager volume is pretty damn light!), but if I am grumpy tomorrow you know why!

In other news: omg, I will soon be a husband. WTF. I do not have any words to describe how much I am WTF OMG WTF OMG about this whole thing. Really. It's blowing my mind. I don't even know what to think right now. Oh yeah, and I owe Janine a lot of things by this weekend... oops... sorry honey, brain got eaten by PayPal. :(

First up: Happy Mother's Day to all those out there of the Mother persuasion. And my own mom, who apparently is reading this journal! (Hi Mom! I sent you two invite codes, you should have them in your hotmail account.)

Anyway.

This weekend went by pretty fast. I'm sure that's going to keep happening. I'm not even really sure what I did yesterday. I know that I went to dinner with Janine to Black Angus and had some nice steak. Oh yeah! Janine just reminded me what I spent the day doing: working on Dreamwidth to get our monthly spend down to a useful level, instead of the Open Beta high level it was at. Right, that sucked my brain.

Today we spent a lot of time on wedding and family stuff, as it is Mother's Day. A few hours in the early afternoon putting together plans for the reception, music choices for the ceremony, and a number of other things that we need to figure out. I still have a few things on my list that I have to look at, I'll get to them this week.

After that, we went up to the city to have dinner with Janine's family (Mom, Sister and Husband and Baby, and Uncle). It was at some Italian place in North Beach. Expensive ($240 for six of us) but the food was pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of really fancy Italian food (it's ... pasta, seriously) but it was alright.

Somewhere in here I spent a little while on the phone with my mom. That was nice -- I really like talking to her, but that always conflicts with me being busy and not liking talking on the phone in general. I should talk to her more, I know.

Upon coming home and taking care of some random things around the house, we tried to catch up on some TV. Two episodes of House and one of Lost and we still have a bunch of Dollhouse and Lost on the list. And of course, tomorrow being Monday brings us more TV. Augh! I've fallen so behind because of the Dreamwidth stuff. Le sigh.

And now for something completely different.

This coming week I will be on call again for my day job, with the added excitement of two full 24 hour shifts because the remote office that normally does the overnight shift will be doing their yearly offsite. It should be fine, typically the night shifts are the quietest, but ... still.

Then once that week (+ weekend) is over, it's wedding time! Oh man. I'm pretty excited, nervous as hell, etc.

I still need to write my vows.

And finish a few honeymoon plans.

Augh!

Things have been absolutely hectic around here the past few days, as you can imagine. We're slowly winding down though, as tomorrow we fly home. It'll be sad to go, but it will be nice to be back home in my environment and have some time to relax.

Of course, as I go back to work Tuesday, I don't really think there's much relaxing time on the schedule... but at least the heavy push of Open Beta will be behind us and things should go back to how they were before. Work on things in the evenings and weekend and turn an eye towards Site Launch. Yay! Life has patterns!

Well really, my big focus for the next month and a half is my impending wedding. Yep! May 24th is the big day, and I'm pretty excited. I keep thinking about how it will feel to see Janine show up in that white dress... oh man, I really can't wait. It's going to be so amazing.

That's all for now. I'm really beat. Going to sleep!
