Holy crap. Lists upon lists upon lists. I’m not to the point of making lists of my lists yet, but I’m very close. I’m just rewriting them at this point.
And I have to remember to take with us to the wedding everything we want to take on the honeymoon, as well, since the sisters are spiriting us away to a hotel room that night after the party, and then we leave in the morning for Vancouver!
I am so excited. I am also ready for the party. Then I’m ready to leave. You know? I enjoy planning, but even with a tiny little cheap wedding, this is extreme planning, yo. We want to have a housewarming at some point, but that would be planning, and I just can’t bear it.
I think we need massages. Yup. I may need to make some phone calls today. Not like we have ANY money to spare, but can’t we justify this? We NEED it. I’m feeling mostly good, and mostly together, and mostly happy, and then something little will happen, and I’ll snap — GRRROWWWWWL! Kerthunk. Humph. Stomp, stomp, stomp. Of course, it’s Lala I snap on most — or if it’s not snapping, then it’s moods. Growly moods, for bad reasons like tripping over the dog, or not having chocolate in the house. Stooopid.
But I’ve learned this, and it’s a good lesson: On my days off, for the last three months, I’ve been busy from morning until night. From 7am until 9pm, I Do Stuff, constantly and without ceasing (mothers all around the country are saying SHUT UP! I’VE DONE THAT FOR YEARS!). First it was packing, then moving, then unpacking, then wedding planning.
That’s not complaining, that’s an observation that I am able to be productive when I need to be. Which means this: When we come home from the honeymoon, I will spend that time writing. Or at least a lot of it. If I can spend all day running errands and doing things that I don’t particularly like to do, then I can spend more hours than I am now writing, which I LOVE to do.
So that’s the plan.
Oh, my god. I’m still planning. Erg.
