- Wedding: September 2013
Let me start off by saying I’ve only moved once before – when I was 7.
So I’ve lived in the same house with my parents for the last 20 years.
But now my fiance and I FINALLY bought a house together (we’ve been working towards out own place for 5 long years), and while I am VERY excited, I’m also really nervous.
I’m nervous about sleeping there alone (my fiance works nights). I hate the dark. And ghosties. lol. I have a wild imagination.
I’m afraid of taking care of a house on my own. I know how to do everything (laundry, cleaning, cooking, etc) because my mom has health problems so I’ve had to help her a lot. But I SUCK at cooking. Like, really badly.
I’m afraid of how we’re going to manage with money. We are well below our budget on monthly expenses, but with the wedding being 4 months away, we’ll have a lot of extra costs and it’s just …. overwhelming.
I have anxiety and I get out of sorts really easily, so living in a new house (practically alone except on weekends) is really freaking me out. And the fact that the wedding is so close and I’m still relatively new at my job is taking its toll. I’m just so …. stressed out and feeling disorganized and out of place and on edge.
Again, I am really happy and excited but .. the thought of moving all my clothes/furniture/collectibles/belongings, transferring bank accounts, planning meals, grocery shopping, being alone, dealing with the wedding guest list, last few wedding payments, invitations, decorations, dress alterations…. UGH!!!
I’m just very overwhelmed.
Is it normal to feel nervous about living in a new place??? Or am I just a big baby?
