- Wedding: September 2010
I just need to vent for a minute…
My wedding is on Saturday. Today was my last day of work before the wedding and I thought I was pretty much in the home stretch. I got a phone call from my mom at 5:00pm telling me that her stepmom had passed away. We had been expecting this for some time and her passing is almost a relief as she has been suffering from severe Alzheimer’s for many years. However, we are now having to postpone the funeral until next Tuesday and I know this all puts a big strain on my mom.
Then I received a phone call from the priest at 8:00pm telling me that they have had several deaths in the parish today and have to have a funeral on Saturday morning before our ceremony. He called to “ask my permission” but really, I can’t say “no” to that…it’s a funeral. It shouldn’t be too big of a deal, we will just work around the whole thing and stay out of the sanctuary area until after the funeral is over. It just puts another hitch in the plans for decorating, photos, etc. And I am a BIG planner person.
Finally, I got an email from my personal attendant saying that her grandmother also passed away today. Her funeral may have to be on Saturday (they are trying for Friday but won’t know until the end of the day tomorrow if it will happen) which would mean she can’t make it to the wedding.
Fiance says I need to shake this all off and just keep moving forward. I know that’s true and I am trying. It’s just a lot to process all in one evening…
