And no, it’s not the wedding planning (per se), but everything else!!!! I was suppoesed to be really committed to housecleaning and preparing all the suitcases for our honeymoon, checking if there’s anything to buy yet and relax a little, taking in these last few days before W-day..NOT happening!!! Suddenly FI’s leaving the country tomorrow, on business and he has been relying on me to do a bunch of stuff (mainly because his english is terrrible), meaning Hotel, rent-a-car,flight searching, reservation,e-mail echange, technical data sheet he needs to take with him..ARGH!! I am E-X-H-A-U-S-T-E-Dm bees..i have a very active 4 years old who brings me home cute “quests” like “How many ºC has the sun?” or “Things to take on the pre-school applyance renewal” AND a teenager who’s on the last weeks of tests at school so i have to control her study hours..who has time for finishing favors? Or go through the lists i prepared????? So tired, bees…..

I am so sorry! It’s tough when you have a million things to do. I completely understand, I was going through this recently. Even if I accomplished something, it felt like nothing because there were a million other little things to do!
Could you recruit some others to help you? Maybe have the teenager help you with some cleaning, or have a trusted family member/friend help you with some things? I know it’s always hard to ask for help, but hopefully this will alleviate some of your stress.
Good luck! 🙂

@Rivendeler: Awwww!!! keepsmiling19 had some good suggestions. If you make a list of all the things you have left maybe that will help you take “small bites” out of the “huge elephant”! That way if you can get some help, they can look at your list and know exactly what to do. Or if you can’t get a lot of help, you’ve just made your own to do list! My house looked as if a tornado went through it, so I completely understand.

My mum DID volunteer to help but i really don’t want her to be around, poking everywhere and above all i do not want her to see how over the top i truly am at the moment. I solve my own mess..kind of..i know, i know, it’s something i must solve one day.
Thanks for the advices, girls, really. I am feeling a little more relieved as the trip to Poland i was organizing for my Fiance is all planned and confirmed by now so i can take this from my back..RELIEF!!
dearest, i am a lists person..if it wasn’t for those i would be completely lost by now!! I have someone who can help me the week before the wedding (next one, yikes!!!), housecleaning, that is but until then i will have to be as busy as a bee!!
