Thoughts from a week out - March 13, 2009

A week from today, I will be in south Alabama for my wedding rehearsal. That's pretty weird.

Yesterday was my first real, big freak out day. I guess everything added up and felt like it was collapsing on me. I was majorly stressed to the point where my boss told me to take today off. I ended up going to lunch with Bobby, and he did a great job of making me laugh and forget about all my worries and the things that needed to be done. Definitely affirmed a lot of the reasons I want to marry the guy. He's pretty great.

And after that, everything just didn't seem so bad. I'm not really even sure why I got so stressed out, except maybe nerves and just feeling a little overwhelmed. Having today off helps, too, because we're cleaning my apartment in preparation for the bachelorette party tomorrow night and going to the courthouse to get our marriage license.

I can't remember if I posted this before, but we also bid on a house and will find out Monday if we are actually going to get it or not. Not knowing the outcome of that has sort of added some stress, too, and if we get it, we have to fill out a bunch of paperwork next week. And if we don't, well, we're going to be pretty disappointed. But, as Bobby pointed out, something better for us will come along if we don't get this one.

I'm looking forward to my bachelorette party, too. Ashley's hosting it at my apartment, and we're just going to have a PJ party with ice cream and movies and pizza. I like all of these things. And I'm excited about some time with the girls. I feel like I haven't gotten enough of that lately. Lauren's coming into town early to hang out, so that'll be fun. Bobby's going to cook lunch for us.

Then on Monday my office is holding a small get-together for us, too. We're going out for drinks at the Cypress Inn. Should be nice.

The rest of next week will be dedicated to getting together all the little, last-minute stuff, packing for the wedding, packing for France. I've done a little shopping for France to get a few new clothing items and hope to do some more!

OK, now I really need to stop putting off cleaning. I'm so excited that the wedding is (finally) almost here!
