I don’t know why I was thinking about this today, but I know that my mind tends to wander and I think about the weirdest things at the weirdest times. And it struck me today about what I would REALLY be thinking about while I was walking down the aisle. It’s a fairly long walk from where we will start to the actual altar. I’m hoping all my focus will be on FI, but I can actually see myself having an internal dialogue that goes something like “OMG, there is is…He looks fantastic…I can’t believe we’re finally getting married…The violin sounds really pretty…Look! Jane actually made it…Wow! She cut her hair…Is that a chipmunk? I didn’t realize there were chipmunks here…Wait! Focus Jo! Look at FI…Yay!…Everyone is looking at me…Don’t trip…Don’t trip…Don’t trip…Oh, almost at the front…This is it! EEEEE!”

Don’t fall. Don’t fall. Don’t fall. Why is Dad walking so slow? Oh shit, I need to walk slower, you’re not supposed to jog down the aisle. OMG I’M GETTING MARRIED. Don’t fall.
That was the gist of it.

Yeah, I pretty much thought “OMG I can’t believe it’s already here…I can’t believe the man of my dreams is at the other end of this aisle….okay, don’t fall, hold your flowers down….why is my grandad walking SO fast? I want to walk down this aisle FOREVER!!!….this is SO awesome!!!…..okay good, no falling, no crying. Don’t fall….I really love this song…there he is!!!Closer…closer…almost there…..Okay, whew Made it 🙂

My percession music was prerecorded so I was thinking “make it down the aisle before the music finishes up!” and I was trying to smile and be cool but I think I looked like I was about to cry..because I was….

No less than one million thought will be running through my head I’m sure, most of them already said by PP’s. One thing is missing though… I will be worrying about whether I adequately taped down my jelly rolls!

I kept hearing a verse from one of my favorite poems, because everything kind of slowed down and it just kept running through my head, “Years from now, when I’ve forgotten my name, and the meaning of money…this much I will remember..” I was just completely drawn in to Mr. 99’s smiling eyes and the stillness of the moment, and those few words…it was maybe a minute tops, but one of the most amazing minutes of my life.

Here’s what I was thinking: Wow! There are more people here than I thought, Watch your step, don’t fall, don’t fall, why in the hell am I shaking, don’t fall, don’t fall; and then I saw my honey checking me out, HUGE SMILE (and blush) The end, lol.

That is pretty much exactly what happened to me HAHA. Look a squirrel! No just kidding. But it was like this:
“Wow almost everyone showed up… oh crap my dress is dragging gravel, i can hear it! OH hey there’s so and so, and oh my flowers look good, oh hey there’s so and so too! Oh they’re standing in the back obviously they just got here, oh wait look at fiance you’re almost there! Shit I didn’t even see him!”

You guyyyyss. I’m at work. These are too funny. It’s hard to maintain office laughter (silent laughter) when the thoughts are so funny! I mean c’mon, a chipmunk thought? Hilarious.

don’t cry, don’t cry whatever you do… don’t cry.
we arrived at end of aisle and I thought “oh shit…” no, wait- I said that aloud.
