Anyone else feel like they have so much going on that they can’t stop and catch their breath? I am currently packing my classroom/ending the school year, job hunting, house hunting, packing up my house and moving things into storage, and getting married in two short months. It is hard to focus and I am feeling depressed because I feel like the wedding planning is zooming by and I am missing the moments to enjoy it with all of the other stuff going on. Any advice? Thanks in advance for listening to my vent I just needed some Bee Love!

I know where you’re coming from, sometimes there is just so much.
Remember to keep some time for yourself, and eat, ad go to bed on time, and other than that, I have no answers because to be honest I am totally overwhelmed myself.
However you are not alone, and we are all here to struggle through this with you!

Nods – Urgh its sometimes like treading water. We are renovating, I’m teaching new subjects with no curriculum; I’m writing it all, it is Certificate stuff, doing a Digital Pedagogy Licence (ICT in Teaching) and trying to plan a wedding and make sure my final units are written for when I’m on my honeymoon.
Lets send each other good vibes. That’s what us fellow Bees are for.

Looks like we are all getting close to the big day too! Maybe it just comes with the territory. It isn’t the stress that I can’t handle…but the worrying that I am not enjoying it enough and will one day regret that part 🙁

Yes, it definitely feels like too much. I’m so overwhelmed it feels like I should call the wedding off altogether!

I understand exactly how you are feeling. My fiance and I are getting married in…YIKES…12 days!!! We still have so much to do! In fact, I have wedding favors with me to work on tonight while I’m at work. I started planning right after Chistmas, he proposed on Christmas eve, but am realizing NOW there are SO many things we had to wait to get done (ie, finalizing plans, finishing favors, food, final guest counts, etc…) I feel like everything is going SO fast and I just can’t keep up! BUT remember, your wedding day is about you and FI! So long as you are there and he is there and you two get married, that’s really all that matters! No one will honestly remember how perfectly teid the ribbon was around your fan handles, or how perfectly coordinated your unity candle was! <3

You are definitely not alone!!! I just graduated so I’m in the process of trying to get my licensed and certified, looking for a job, moving into an apartment, and get everything all together for the wedding.

I try and do something small every week. I only have a few things to oragnise before the big day the rest is out of my hands.

@miss islndgrl: I think we are twins in so many ways right now and I understand! I’m getting married July 27, got a new job, have to pack up my classroom and re set up at a new school, finish report cards, finish DIYs, etc, etc, etc,. Life is going so fast I can’t keep up.
I made a “to do” list for my wedding and every day life, broken into very small chunks. My work list, for example, says things like “Pack up three cupboards”, “Take paper off one wall”, “Clean out animal tanks”, while my wedding list says “Finish one bout”, “Print escort cards”, “Paint board with magnet paint”. I find the smaller the chunks, the easier they are done and the better I feel. I rather have a long list with lots of 10 minute tasks than a short one with tasks that can take hours to complete.
