- Wedding: September 2011
Whew. Can I just use you wonderful girls to listen for a minute while I share a bit about what my next few months look like? I feel like my friends are tired of hearing about it (because, of course, they already know) and I’m STRESSED and need some ears.
So in 5 days I’ll be seeing Mr. Hubby-to-be for the first time in 6 months. I’ve been living abroad for the past year, and he flew out to visit to propose! I’m am (obviously) BEYOND words excited to see him. He is currently living with his parents, so I am moving in (separate bedrooms–of course (insert awkward story about his mom e-maling me to talk about sex. I won’t expound because I’m sure you can imagine).
We are living with in the in-laws for about a month. This will be my first time meeting them.
Then it’s off (across the country) to my family (whom he has met) and living with them for the month leading up to the wedding. My family and I don’t always get along well.
Then the wedding festivities.
Then back to the in-laws for two weeks for the reception.
Then him and I are flying overseas for 18 months. All in all we are stateside for 2 1/2 months together where I am supposed to see all my family and friends and feel like I see enough of them to last me for the next 18 months!
So I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the travel, people meeting (did I mention my Mother-In-Law is throwing a welcome party the same day my flight lands?? So nervous, but I know it’ll help keep me from falling asleep from jet lag). I’m a bit overwhelmed with seeing him and having the whole engagement feel real and rushing right into the wedding stuff. Not to mention learning how to live in the same space while we have our parents running around with us. I feel like wedding seasons are already stressful and then I’m throwing all this other stuff on at hte same time. I keep asking him how he’s feeling, but of course he super cool about it and isnt’ nervous at all. Gotta loves guys 🙂 They aren’t a hug back full of emotion like us!
Do you bees have any advice about living with the in-laws, having a LDR end (as in we are finally together), and really any advice about it at all. I would love.
I can’t really complain because I feel so hugely blessed. But just needed to get it off my chest. Thank you for listening!
