I’ve been having trouble sleeping too.. not just because my wedding is this month but also because my Father passed away 3 weeks ago, so its been a SUPER stressful time. I do take Tylenol PM though and that works for me some of the time. You could maybe try a lower dose? That and also work on deep breathing/attempting to meditate? Counting sheep.. thinking of things that are boring. That’s what I try and do.

Hugs!   The only thing that works for me when I’m that stressed out is breathing techniques from yoga. And going to yoga classes with fire breathing. Both tire me out/calm me down when nothing else will.

Hugs to all of you!!!

Right now I’m actually sleeping more than normal… but that’s just my body’s way of hiding from the to do list I think!

I’ve had a really hard time sleeping too! I have been taking a half of a sleeping pill a night for the past 5 nights so i can get a normal amount of sleep. It’s the only way i can get my head to turn off!!! I highly recommend it!!

Wow! Our lease actually ends June 30 (while we’re in Jamaica) so we stayed another year just because of that! (they wouldn’t extend it a month which was fine). But wow, I probably wouldn’t be sleeping either! I probably wouldn’t be able to relax on the Honeymoon either, too busy thinking about moving!

@thewheelsonthebus: That is my current strategy as well. I feel like it’s going to end up being a bad idea!

Tips…. it helps me to make lists of what I need to do, buy, call, whatever. And then check them off. Put simple things like do the laundry, call and confirm limo etc., on it so you feel more accomplished. Bigger things like “finalize honeymoon” can be too stressful. Break it down. Even if it means 25 things are on your list, you’ll be able to cross them off faster.


If you’re at work, try take 15 minutes to knock out a few things – step outside make a few calls, send a couple emails so you feel like things are getting done during the day.


Hope this helps! and good luck with the wedding/honeymoon/moving!

@thewheelsonthebus: Haha I’m with you! I’m surprisingly low-key. I feel like if things go wrong at this point, then they’ll just go wrong and we’ll all laugh. I’m pretty laid-back! 🙂

Yup, I definately haven’t been sleeping well lately. I keep remmembering things I need to do, and I have really bizzare dreams when I do fall asleep. I ended up KOing when I got home last night from work because I was so exhausted.. (which wasnt good because we had a meeting with the DJ). I have a feeling its going to get worse before it gets better… I will probably spend the first day of the honeymoon in bed.
