Stretched beyond my organizational capacity and using too many exclamation points

I'm sorry, I've got nothin'. Because I just can't think.

Every time I try to think, like, about stuff I actually have to do with my job, for example, the phone rings. Or I get an email. About wedding things.

As it's the month of our nuptials, I want to focus on nice things. And write a post on how we met and how great Nick is and nice ooey gooey stuff like that.

But the truth is, I'm 37 kinds of completely wound up.

There are too many questions and deadlines and decisions. Questions! How many? What kind? Who? Where? And! What else are we going to have for dessert now that there's just not room for a chocolate fountain at the rehearsal dinner?

Questions!? To be answered!

Stressed! So not fun lately! I mean, me.

My patience is so thin it's transparent. And sometimes, it's like I'm looking down at myself while I'm talking. And I want to reach out and cover my other me's mouth and be all, "Stop it!" And I just can't.


On the up-side, I'm nipping out in five minutes for my practice wedding hair appointment.

Fingers crossed!



  1. Lot's of deep breathing... and booze. That's all I have.

  2. it's all so exciting i don't know how you could NOT be totally wound up. and the nice thing is as the date gets closer you'll be more relaxed, you'll have to be. there'll be nothing left to do but enjoy it!
    and my 2cents on the chocolate fountain - little kids tend to put their nasty hands and licked fingers in there... if you're inviting them beware.

  3. (1) You're going to look ravishing no matter what they do, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed anyway.

    (2) The Italian Store has a 5-kilo jar of Nutella. How you use that information is up to you.

    (3) The thing to remember, is that whatever you decide at this point really will be fine. You've got a billion details, but that's all they are - details. The you, the him, the family, the friends, the place, time, date - all of that's done. The rest is small stuff. Fun, tasty, pretty small stuff. But small stuff.

    So pour yourself a giant martini and play eenie-meenie-miney-moe. :o)

  4. Breathe! It willall be over soon and you'll be all like, that was easy! :-) Enjoy your hair appointment, can't wait to hear about it!

  5. I am sure some time at the salon will be relaxing...I heart head massages.

    Hang in there lady. At the end of the day, you will be Mrs. Nick and that is all that matters.

  6. I'm here if you need me - for valium, alcohol, or help with wedding favors. Whatever!

  7. Ooh ooh! Can't wait to hear how the appointment goes! :) :) :)

  8. The countdown *will* be crazy, and you may feel like you're being pulled in a million directions, but at the same time, do your best to enjoy it all--how often do you get to plan your own wedding? Hopefully just once! And if you don't have time for things like blogging, don't worry. We'll be here for all the ooey-gooey stories when you're done getting yourself and Nick hitched.

  9. It's all beautiful, my friend! You could put your hair in a scrunchie - a scrunchie, and it would still be gorgeous. Take a deep breath and enjoy it all...=-)

  10. RestaurantRefugee - Breathing and booze are good recommendations, seriously.

    notsojenny - I can't wait till we get to that nothing more to do point! We're not having any children, so no icky fingers in the chocolate. I, however, might lick mine and stick my whole hands in. :)

    Jessica - 1. Thank you. I hope so. 2. Not helpful at this juncture but excellent information for the future. 3. Yes, you are so completely right. It's small. I get caught up in all of it, but it's not the big important stuff. And nothing a giant martinia and eeny meeny miney moe can't fix.:)

    MrsMac - Breathing, breathing! Will let you know! The jury is out on it.

    Lemmonex - Ahh, what a good reminder! Mrs. Nick! :)

    FreckledK - Thank you, sweetie! You are kind!

    A.S. - Will post! She struggled with my not want to curl straight hair.

    Sarah - Thanks for saying that. You are right - just once, no matter what! And thanks for letting me know you'll still be around if I slack on the blogging.

    Ryane - Ah, thank you, my friend. I might wind up doing just that. :)

  11. 1. Take pictures of the hair
    2. Exclamation points suit you
    3. This is all worth it
    4. Something else really kind and positive that's eluding me at the moment...

  12. there should be "wedding leave" just as there is maternity leave . . . too many details and pressing issues to think about WORK!


Tell me about it.
