Only a month to go and I still don’t have the following items (yes, believe it or not).
My dress is not in. It’s supposed to be in by the end of the month, which means I’ll have less than 2 weeks for any potential alterations. My sister found a dress this weekend (she’sa a bridesmaid and it most likely won’t match my MOH’s dress), but hasn’t found a flower girl dress for my niece yet.
Haven’t nailed down flowers or cake. Reception restaurant manager will not return my calls/emails. Still need to rent freaking chairs and figure out how to set up the ceremony site. Haven’t done seating chart, menu cards, or place cards. Still need to figure out where I’m going to be getting ready, and also my transportation to the site.
It’ll most likely be 90 degrees, with near 100% humidity the day of.
And to top it all off, we still do NOT have our rings yet. Nor do I have my e-ring yet.

Oh. my. goodness. Seriously just went to start the same kind of thread.
I’m stressed out, I’m tired, and I’m hormonal. Just spent 2 hours redrafting the contract that I drew up a year ago with the caterers/hall because our old caterers were crooks and skipped town. I cried about 5 times during that meeting and looked like a complete emotional bridezilla, when really all I am is EXHAUSTED. I just want something to go right in this planning process! Between our caterers taking off, our pastor being in and out of the hospital with some unexplained illness, our photobooth lady having unexpected back surgery and cancelling last minute, my purse being stolen at my bridal shower, and our hall coordinator being out on medical leave now, I am SO READY to just get this mess over with and be married.
I told myself that I wouldnt be one of those stressed out dramatic brides, and maybe it’s just the hormones talking right now, but man oh man.

@Mrs.Beeloney: Holy freaking cow. That’s a lot of craziness to deal with! Good luck and I hope everything turns out ok. *big hugs*

@bebefly: LOL, I hear you! I felt the same way when I lost my checkbook the other day. WTF, I just had it a second ago and then it disappeared. I feel like I’m losing my mind lately.

We bought a house less than 2 months ago. Today we found out the reason our AC doesn’t work any more is because, prior to selling the house, the previous owners took apart some parts of the whole contraption and cleaned it to make it look newer than it was. This “cleaning” put holes in it. All the freon leaked out and the whole thing is irreparable. We have to buy a new central AC unit. RAWR!
ETA: to improve matters, for the past month Minnesota has had some of the highest temperatures on record. We can’t sleep it’s so hot. And we won’t get to until we come up with a few grand.

DH stopped by the grocery store on his way home from work tonight…I had asked him to pick me up a watermelon (my current craving). He brought home 2 packs of Oreos, a jar of Nutella, a box of Lucky Charms, a bag of Kettle-cooked potato chips…and no watermelon.
I know it seems like silly thing to be upset about, but I’m nearly 37 weeks pregnant, I’ve been really good about my diet and keeping my weight gain to a minimum, and not only did he not get me the one thing I requested, but instead came in with a ton of junk food that’s sitting, taunting me…

@Mrs Sarah McK: Not silly. One of the biggest fights I’ve ever had with an ex was about one effin thing he forgot at the grocery store after I asked him about it multiple times in person and texted him about it. It was a pattern with him…. And I love watermelon too, so I totally sympathize

I hate my feet. Seriously– they are the worst feet EVER.
No matter how many pedicures I get or give myself— they still look like I trekked across the continental US barefoot. Through thorns.
No amount of filing, lotion, polish, smell good scrub, or razors can make these things Sally Hansen worthy. They suck and I am over it!

I’m mentally tired of looking at different vendors.
And my fiance just got off the phone with his mom, who is always either extremely positive or extremely negative. Guess which mood she picked to be in today?
Stuff about how he should thank his lucky stars that I’m still under my dad’s health insurance and that he’s doing everything ass-backwards and why isn’t he looking for more jobs in our city (which is also the city she lives in…actually she begged us to live here a few years ago and we conceded) where no one in our group seems to be able to find jobs. She cycles like this all the time and it can be upsetting but I don’t like taking it seriously or I’ll just get mad.
She tells him a lot of the time that he doesn’t know what it’s like yet to be an adult, but she hasn’t really financially supported him since he started college. When he was in debt because of confusion over financial aid he paid it himself without complaint with money that he earned and was going to school full time and working, so when she tells him he’s spoiled it’s hard to take her seriously. Once in a blue moon his parents will give him some money but for the most part he’s been paying his half of our bills and rent.
Anyway, talking to our moms about the whole marriage thing can get exhausting. We both personally think they’re so bitter about their failed marriages (they both treated our dads like garbage) that they feel the need to put us down.
It’s just…our moms also constantly rag on us for not being religious like they are, yet they think we shouldn’t be getting married? WTH? How can you be religious and not fully support the spiritual commitment that comes with marriage?
Honestly, if he ever decided once and for all to be done with his mother, I wouldn’t care. I only put up with her for his sake. My mom’s not much better, and sometimes I wonder why we try so hard to please them when there really is nothing we can do about that until they are happy with their own lives.

This whole year has stunk, and isn’t the way I envisioned my first year of marriage:
- Car died (financial burden)
- Cat died (emotional burden)
- Two miscarriages (more emotional burden)
- Grandmother died (biggest of them all! She raised me!)
- To top it off, I’m the only one who really deep-cleans the house. Grr.

I’m currently living on two mattresses with my 3 year old child in 103 degree weather, while my FI moves our things across the country.
Oh, and I’m getting married in 2 weeks.
Oh, and the house we’re under contract on needs a new roof before we can move in.
