- Wedding: September 2011
Phew, it’s happened. I know there are several of these posts lately (in fact, I’ve shared part of my story on one). I need to vent and to talk to someone, but I know I’m overreacting so I’ll just vent to the Bee 🙂
Our wedding is a week and a half away, and I just realized how high my tensions are. I’ve been spending HOURS on our wedding programs; I bought packages of tri-fold ones and formatting the dang things were much more difficult than I imagined. Finally they were ready to go, so with one final lookover by my Fiance and myself, I went ahead and started to print. Over 60 (which, when you’re doing front and back it takes FOREVER). A little after midnight I’m about to pack it in and call it a night, and I see it. His grandmother’s name. An “o” instead of an “e”. I’m upset. And tired. So I decide to text my sleeping Fiance to tell him. He calls and apologizes, and to tell the truth, I’m short with him.
Today. I’m getting over it; I’m still annoyed but I could have seen that earlier too; it’s ok. Now the one real project he has to do is make a video for the reception, which he wanted to do since he’s a film editor. He’s working with my dad on this, and is being less than quick about getting it together. My dad want him to come over after our dance lesson (which happens to be where I live, too), and Fiance reluctantly agrees. Fiance asks if I’ll go to our new apt before our lesson, and I said I didn’t want to drive out of my way, since my work is a 30 minute commute, and our apt is another 30 minutes out of my way. Fiance then complains that HE has to go to my dad’s after too, which is out of his way, so why can’t I come? I couldn’t even talk to him about it. I go “out of my way” every single day to get to work; our new place, where he is living now, is not even a 5 minute drive. I go there a few times a week and he never goes to my dads, so basically I’m always the one to go out of my way, and I don’t complain about it.
I don’t know if that made ANY sense, but basically I’m frustrated because I’m spending every free moment doing wedding projects, and he is whining about driving a little way. Even this morning, when he asked if he was in trouble for the grandma thing, I told him no, but that I feel that although he says he appreciates all the work I’m doing, he doesn’t really know what all I’m doing. Right now he is just adding more stress by being so difficult.
I’m trying to take deep breaths and chill over it, but I am just really annoyed. Grrrr, why do weddings do this to us???
