….I sure do!! FI and I are closing on our first house and it was supposed to be Friday, but because nobody is getting their sh** together, it got pushed back until next week. We put my dad on our loan to get a better rate, but that means he has to provide all sorts of stuff as well and he’s taking his sweet time. Most of it I can’t do because I’m not listed on his bank account…same with FI, since I’m not on his account (yet) there is very little I can do. The mortgage company keeps emailing me telling me what they still need and there is nothing I can do!!
Oh, and I just got off the phone with FI…several of his friends never received their invitations, which I sent out a month ago.
Anybody else need a good cry?

Yes, yes, yes!!!
Yesterday was a doozy. Everything just feels like a weight. I can’t wait until the honeymoon to just relax.

Me! I’m at the point where I could just crumble and cry my eyes out! I’m seriously done with planning and I just want the day to arrive!

Yes! I’m having a rough week!!
First, I worked Sun so I’m already on a 6-day workweek and I’m exhausted. To top it off, I had my sister’s bday dinner after work on Mon and 2 mandatory after-work events Tues and Wed so now I’m REALLY exhausted. And, tonight is a coworkers goodbye happy hour since tomorrow is her last day, so I don’t even get to go home and pass out. I can’t wait until quitting time tomorrow!
I’m trying to relocate and can’t find a job in the state I’m moving to and have gotten exceptionally discouraged by this especially today for some reason. I hate the job I’m working at currently, I hate my commute, I’m dying to move and I feel like it’s never going to happen!
I can’t decide what I even want for a wedding anymore. And I’m still kind of technically waiting for a ring even though FI and I have started planning, but then put a pause on the planning b/c we both got overwhelmed. Destination wedding in the islands? Vineyard wedding? Backyard wedding? Elopement? Ah, where does the money come from for all of the things we need??
I’m late. My period is all out of whack. I’m on the pill and last month I got my period out of no where in the middle of the pack. I called my Dr and the nurse said to just continue with the pack and start a new pack like I normally would. I don’t remember if I got my period a 2nd time when the pack ended but normally I should be getting it like today and it’s not here. I know that’s not “very late” or anything, but because of the pill, I’m usually like clockwork, so I’m freaking out a bit.
FI is taking the car in for a tuneup today and I’m hoping it will be (a) good to go for some time because I cannot afford a new car anytime soon and (b) not too expensive because this is an expense we’d have to pull out of our savings for and I don’t want to do that with the imminent possibility of a move! My poor baby, she’s my first car and I’ve had her since HS and I can’t imagine replacing her and I can’t imagine her dying on me!
Ok, I’ll stop now…

I had a good cry this weekend when SO was away. I hate being in that empty apartment and I just couldn’t pull it together. It also didn’t help that I rented “The Time Traveler’s Wife” and spent the majority of the day bawling me eyes out over that. haha

Yep – having a rough week/month/year. I have a lot to be thankful for so I’m holding it together as much as possible but I could definitely use a good ugly cry right about now.

I think we all need a vacation. Sit on the beach with a nice fruity drink and a little umbrella.

I’ve cried a lot in the past couple weeks!! Haha, and I’m sure that won’t be it. I just can’t wait for all this business to be over, have the wedding, and then ditch reality for adventures in Ireland.
…Now I know why people choose some sort of beach thing for a honeymoon since it’s super easy to relax after all that craziness. We’ll be driving every other day to a new location and seeing the sites, which I’m sure will be fun, but now I am wishing (just a little) that we chose something where we can just lay back with a drink in hand! Haha 🙂

Yes! Yesterday was one of the worst days I have had in a long time (see thread here). Today I feel emotionally drained after all the drama and would love to sit and cry somewhere just to get it all out.

If I wasn’t at work I’d be crying right now.
I just found out from the dress shop that my dress was pushed back 6-8 wks in production and “Hopefully” will be in California next week……um it’s that word “hopefully” that makes me want to cry. The dress has been ordered and paid for (in full) since December.
Also, my wax casting for my wedding band had to be sent back to the shop (AGAIN) because it’s wrong and I won’t approve it until it looks right. They’re keeping my engagement ring to make sure the hand-engraved details match up. SOooooo have seen it since July 4. Probably won’t see it until ………welll…..I have no idea. There’s more but those are just the icing on the cake. Gah! I am so over planning.

ok..so, yesterday was worse for me! Here’s the story…
FI and I are soo close to closing on our house (was suppose to be today, but it was pushed back until Wednesday). Since my name is not on our contract at this time, I went up to the city housing and health department with my mom to get our occupancy permit. I was already walking a VERY thin line. I went up to the lady behind the counter and said “my name isn’t on the contract, am I able to apply for the permit, or does it have to be my FI?” The lady says “you’re name isn’t on it?” I said no and she goes “well, then you can’t get the permit…” I nearly lost it, my eyes got all watery and the lady goes “I’m only kidding! You can get the permit!!” I looked at her with tears in my eyes and said “THAT’S NOT FUNNY!!!!” My mom started laughing and goes “I’m sorry, she’s trying to buy this house, and is getting married next month…nothing is funny to her right now.”
Then, She pulls up all the info on her computer and asks if the house passed inspection. I said I assumed so because it didn’t pass the girst time for some minor things and the bank (forclosed house) said they fixed everything and the 2nd inspection was done yesterday. She said its listed as ‘fail’ but would go talk with the inspector and see why. When she came back she said he failed the house because (get this…are you ready?) “there are weeds in the driveway.” WTF!?!?!?!? So, because there are a few weeds in the driveway, they fail it!?!?! This is where I lost my shit and I bawled.
In the end, the weeds where pulled and it passed today and we got our permit….but I cried most of the day yesterday!

Sometimes you just gotta cry, and let it all out!!! 🙂 I have had my share of good cries throughout this whole process.. we are planning a wedding and a move at the same time. I’m moving 10 hours away from my family & the only place I’ve ever lived, so it’s definitely emotional for me as well!
