I’m there too. This is going to be my toughest semester a school, I’m working extra hours, there’s preliminary wedding plans, and I just lost my grandpa. I feel like throwing in the towel a lot of the time

Right now, no, because I working from home in the winter. But once the end of February rolls around, i’ll be right there in that boat with you!

I started planning Dec 2012 because in the summer I really can’t accomplish much at all, I work 6 days a week, 13+ hours a day [with an hour ride in & home], there really ISN’T enough time in the day!

I tried that petal aisle runner a long time ago.. got about 6 feet in and remembered that my “aisle” is a brick walkway, so I didn’t really need a runner! I also didn’t like how mine was turning out either.

Ive pretty much diy’d everything else though.

@eliseemma:  Ha! I just finished my save the dates.. I actually made them using paint and let’s say my printer certainly wasn’t okay with printing them. It literally took ALL day to print and assemble 37 of them.

But at least they are done..

@eliseemma:  thanks. It wasn’t unexpected, but it’s really derailed me. I’m behind on school, and I haven’t had time to catch up.

I didn’t bother with DIY projects. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to get it all done in time so I just didn’t bother.

Yeah, definitely felt that overwhelmed feeling a lot.  When I was wedding planning I was also working full time, selling my house and moving (while basically taking care of two houses for months).  I also had a week of classes  I attended out of town about a month before the wedding.

Now that the wedding is done, house is sold, I’m moved, and things are more settled, it seems a little quiet, lol.  So of course we’re starting to plan some home renovations and are also looking for a “perfect” house for us (which we may not find).  

All I can say is pace yourself, take breaks when you really need to, but just try to steadily get things done.
