This all-wedding-all-the-time thing kinda sucks. Every moment I’m not working, I’m painting or sewing or haphazardly throwing things on a long to-do list that has long since taken a vacation from organization. “Paint bathroom ceiling” sits right below “decide on importance of wedding programs”. Little things mix with big things. I’m prioritizing via this little trick called memory – if I remember it, it must be important. If not, meh.
I’m totally sick of it and it’s only been this way for a few weeks.
With less than 20 days to go (ARGH!!! ohcrapohcrapohcrap), we are plugging through a thousand things, and luckily, they’re not strictly wedding-ish”¦ or I’d probably say screw it, and not do them. But emptying random stuff from the guest suite can’t be avoided. Picking up and laundering the ever-growing piles of clothes must be done. Slipcovering the stupid couch ”” because we’re suckers and let the dogs sleep (and wrestle, argh) on the other slipcover, which now looks completely disgusting ”” has gotta happen.
And then there’s the list of real wedding tasks: finish writing ceremony, meet with preacher, send road closure paperwork to city, invite neighbors, plan ceremony situation, finish song list, pick a first dance song, etc, etc, ETCETERA. *deep breaths*
Okay, gotta run and do something. Thank goodness for work, which at least gives me an excuse to sit in front of my laptop (and blog!) rather than paint or sew or build a garden bench (yes, I swear, I’m totally gonna get that done).
How are y’all doing? Anyone else in the Last Month Crunch?
