- Wedding: October 2010
It was stress! Yesterday was my birthday and my parents brought dinner up to our place which I loved. Mind you, I had a long day yesterday at work and when I walked into our house, it was a tad loud, the counters were covered with bags and junk and I just kind of looked around and went upstairs to change.
Dinner was wonderful and the subject matter we spoke of, as we do all of the time lately, was our wedding…in 17 days. As soon as we started talking about it and my FI was offering his thoughts on a topic, then my mom on the same topic…I held my tongue in silence. And started to get a headache…and really didn’t feel like talking about wedding stuff anymore.
My dad stopped everyone and commented on the look on my face. I just want it to be here, I just don’t want to spend anymore money and while I feel this is the beginning of the end, there is still plenty to do.
I was feeling very overwhelmed. So today, I delegated. And feel better. If you’re experiencing moments of stress and feelings of being overwhelmed, DELEGATE. And don’t feel bad about doing so.
What did my parents end up giving me for my birthday? A one-hour massage! I’ll be using that in the close days leading up to the big day.
