Hello Hello Hello! Gosh I feel like I have so much to catch you guys up on.
Well for starters our computer died, and we haven’t gotten a new one yet [I’m currently using my work computer] so I apologize for not posting in a week! Hopefully we will have a new one by the end of this weekend. [fingers crossed!] Secondly, James grandfather, John, has been battling throat cancer and he was in town earlier this week. So we’ve been spending time with him and the family. Things seem to be looking up! He had a tracheotomy done and will be on that for 3 months, and as long as he continues to quit smoking, drinking and keeps taking care of himself, he’ll be around for a while 🙂
Lastly, it is now 2 months and 10 days until our wedding. Holy cow! I’ve had so much to get done this week, calling the DJ, 2nd payment for the photographer, buying our wedding bands [that was soo much fun!] and figuring out where we were going to get tuxes from. And that’s just the half of it 😉 It’s been hectic and crazy but it’s been fun. James and I have been sitting down with our wedding binder [a major necessity!] and going over what needs to be done next and splitting up the tasks where needed. It’s been great!
But it didn’t start out so great. It started out with me realizing, “CRAP…I haven’t looked at our wedding binder in 2 months” Then a mass freak out after looking at the amount of things we had to do followed by me crying to James, “We are SOOOO behind!!” [dramatic? yes I can be :)] But James calmly sat down next to me, and we went over our timeline/checklist together and he was the one who decided we should split some of the tasks up, and do some of them together. Seriously if this were the oscars, he’s get the oscar for best supporting role. And even though our list of things to do looked really long, it was done in a matter of days. [oh thank god!]
If you’re a bride-to-be and you find yourself panicking, just stop [collaborate and listen] 🙂 but no seriously, take a deep breath, and make a plan. Split tasks up between you and your sig. other. No one says you have to do it all. Reach out for help. It’ll make it easier for you in the end.
