was that the "start gun" i just heard?

well, i called just a while ago and finally got in touch with minnie at parks and recreation and let me just say that she is not nearly as nice or as cheerful as amy poehler's  character on the show of that same name! 
she ONLY has friday, september 18th available. 
p's not keen on rushing it (or necessarily having it on a friday) and i feel really anxious when thinking about moving at the beginning of august and then having 6 weeks til the wedding. on the plus side, it would mean i could just get down to the nitty gritty and make some decisions and stop thinking about it so damn much....
after getting the ground back under me (cindy is the BEST) i called back to see what it would take to reserve that date but wouldn't ya know it... minnie is out of the office for the next hour and a half. so, i am thinking i will phone stalk minnie and reserve the date just in case and try to talk to p about it tonight. already i've had 3 folks say with assurance "we can do this" so i'm beginning to drink the kool-aid and think we can.... i don't know. i feel like i can hear the crazy in that sentence.... 
whatever happens, you know i'll keep you posted!


  1. Thank you, Cindy, for offering Meg the kool-aid and for saying the magic words that calmed. (Cindy IS the best!)

    Besides, isn't it supposed to be the MOB who's panicked about 'not enough time'??? This MOB refuses to acknowledge that panic, and instead am just excited that we may get to tap into the adrenaline (after all, we're ALL moving this summer!) and throw ourselves into this joyous task! Yeah! I can't wait!

  2. Ahhhhhh! We will be out of town that day- and we can't change it!!! I hope that whatever is best for you and P works out- but I seriously might cry if we can't attend...

  3. aww minnie! come lady get with the program here!
