Calgon, Take Me Away…

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?

    Wow, Miss Cheese — props to you for successfully juggling work, blogging (oh-so frequently, too!), wedding planning AND home prep FOR the wedding.

    22 days for me. Every time we check something off the list, three more things take its place. I have a mountain of clean laundry in my living room waiting to be folded, an ever changing seating chart sprawled on my dining room table, and half done projects scattered every where else. I’m just looking forward to the day before the wedding, with all our family and friends, when we start celebrating! 🙂

    I’m with you Miss Cheese! It’s coming soon and it’s going to be wonderful. Find that happy moment and hold on! 🙂

    We got married last weekend. The last month was a killer. I went to bed at midnight and got up by 4 or 5 a.m. to work on wedding stuff, then went to work all day. I was so so tired that we barely did anything on our minimoon but sleep. Seriously. However, it was so worth it. Our wedding day was amazing … and all the little details paid off. A wedding is not about little details, but they do go a long way in making people feel special – including the bride and groom. I was especially nice when my darling husband would say something like, “You were so right about … it made a huge difference.” Or, “I’m so glad you decided to … it made the day.” I think he finally understood my late nights, early morning and general levels of stress.
