This isn’t really that “Emotional”, but I wasn’t sure where else to put it!
For the last two weeks (right around the time we got into that ‘Two months to go!’ timeframe) I cannot focus on work. Messages sit in my inbox, things pile up on my to do list – all the while I can’t bring myself to focus on them, because all I really want to do is put together the OOT bags!
I am letting things pile up and I know I shouldn’t, but I have lost all interest in dealing with paperwork and mundane task right now. I’m like a kid trying to do homework the week of Christmas. I feel so guilty, argh!
Does anybody else have wedding related ADHD? Will it clear up after the honeymoon?

I totally have this same problem (case in point – am on The Bee rather than clearing out my inbox!). I try to work on wedding stuff in the evening so that I can focus on work stuff during the day, but as the wedding draws closer it’s definitely getting more difficult.
I don’t have any solutions, but I can definitely empathize!

I have the same problem, and I’m not even near my wedding date.

Haha… I have a tabbed browser. I always have the Bee up in one and my work (luckily online) up on the other. I bounce back and forth- one work item checked off the to-do list, check weddingbee. I am sooo bad.

So there with you, but my wedding is next year!! I am trying to get the big book together first. And then just create a checklist for each month. I am so scared of getting to May, and nothing is done.

I’m the SAME way. I was on a conference call a while back and someone asked me for my input at the end and I honestly had very little clue as to what had happened. Whoopsies. Btw, the answer “You know, I think I need to digest this all for a few minutes” works 😉

At work right now haha :). I was especialy bad I would say the first two months of engagement. Our engagement is shy of 6 months so the first two months there was a lot to do. I swore up and down I would not be ‘one of those girls” who plays online all day and doesnt work. Mainly just bc a girl got pretty much fired from doing that 3 weeks before our engagement. It always annoyed me how much she didnt work. I think there is an extreme version and then there is plain ol excitement. Chances are if you are realizing it you prob have it under control. If there was no guilt then you prob would be a lot worse than you are. Enjoy this time it only happens once!

My wedding ADHD is even worse. I have 2 more driving lessons and my pratical exam next week to get my dutch drivers license and I keep making stupid mistakes that I know I’ll get failed for. Especially since the dutch examiners are super hard on Americans. Sigh.
I will focus, I will focus, I will focus.
Oh yea, and my inbox at work is a mess. Especially since I’m in charge of several large projects that HAVE to be ready to roll when I get back from holiday at the end of September. So they HAVE to be done by the time I leave at noon on the 1st. Sigh.
Really doesn’t help my folks are flying in next weekend.

TOTALLY. I too keep the hive up all day on a tabbed window. I have been able to complete my menu cards, OOT labels for the boxes, favor tags, and much more at work… tisk tisk I know! This wedding has taken over my entire life!

Omg Yes Yes Yes!
Is it my fault that my wedding is just so much more interesting than my work right now? 😛

Me too me too! Totally distracted! Plus we’re ending our 5+ year LDR and moving in to an apartment over the next few weeks, so I’m either designing menu cards or looking at bedbathandbeyond.com LOL. Very bad!

I think that’s normal and possibly even inevitable. I couldn’t concentrate at work for at least a month (probably more like three, to be totally honest) before my wedding. Now it’s 2 weeks past and my attention is about 70% back (still a little caught up in reminiscing, checking to see if photos are blogged, etc. to totally focus, but muuuccchhh better than before, thank goodness).
