Hello 2016, Goodbye 2015


Before we say great big hello to 2016, we must bid goodbye to 2015. 2015 was a pretty good year here at chez ONeil. I published four ebooks, remade covers on four more, didn't have any new surgeries or procedures and I got married! I updated the cover on the cookbook I published the year … Continue reading Hello 2016, Goodbye 2015

Five Hours Before the Wedding


  So, three people just backed out. What is it with Seattleites? Passive-Aggressive Shits who say one thing and do another. ON the day of our Wedding. I should be used to it, I mean, it's happened each time I tried to throw a Wine Party, invite people to dinner, set up a meeting for coffee/movie/walk, … Continue reading Five Hours Before the Wedding

Day Before the Wedding


All our ducks are lined up for the Wedding tomorrow! We heard from the Minister and read the script he'll use tomorrow, minus our 'secret' vows to each other and special memories, so we'll be surprised at/for each other. The Minister also found us a photographer who promises to take lots of pictures, she'll even … Continue reading Day Before the Wedding

Four Days Until the Wedding & Apartment Inspection


Four days until the big "I DO's"!  We're both still excited and not really nervous yet.  BF said he totally understands Bridezillas now.  He's been calling and dealing with all the preparations because I can't hear on phones. The biz's have been pretty good with him, as no one would dare tell a former Army … Continue reading Four Days Until the Wedding & Apartment Inspection

5 Days Until the Wedding


The minister gave us homework, a small questionnaire for each of us to fill out. Me, being a writer, answered more than he really wanted, so he had to pare down my answers. Ask a writer a question, they'll give you an answer!  He asked us our favorite qualities of our fiance, our favorite memory of … Continue reading 5 Days Until the Wedding

7 Days Until the Wedding


BF changed his mind about the minister and hired a different one, "The Elopement Minister". Apparently a ceremony that is twenty minutes or under is called an elopement and a ceremony is over twenty, up to an hour.  I cannot imagine. We both just want it done. This minister is giving us homework, lol. Questions … Continue reading 7 Days Until the Wedding

8 Days Until the Wedding


BF finally found a minister we both like, application and fee paid, which was about the same price as the tuxedos, good lord. But, after two previous ministers backed out, we're lucky to get one at all this late. Our friend, let's call him "Snowflake", over-promised what his minister friend would/could do. That wasted about … Continue reading 8 Days Until the Wedding
