Two months out from my wedding and I’m feeling a bit vent-y-
– Because I couldn’t invite all her friends and extended family to the wedding (venue was too small, plus I didn’t want a bunch of peripheral people at my wedding), my mom decided to have a reception for me for them. Which is really nice, BUT it means that she’s not really that available to help for my wedding. I could have really used the help. : / (Most of my bridesmaids live out of town.) A lot of stuff I feel people usually have friends around for, I’m doing myself — makeup trial, finding a dress, etc.
– My fiance is really busy with work and career stuff, and was helping out initially a lot, but is now unavailable to help with the wedding. (He should be free a month before the wedding, though, but that’s crunch time, really.) So, at the moment, all the wedding planning falls on my lap — and as there are several events, it’s feeling like a lot.
– I just inherited a new boss *and* a much heavier workload, so I’m totally stresed trying to stay on top of work, especially with all the PTO coming up due to the honeymoon and wedding. I keep getting more work thrown my way, and I’m trying to say no to stuff, but I feel bad about saying no.
– My brother, who I used to be very close to, isn’t really talking to me now. Long story short, he’ll definitely be long-faced at the wedding, and it’s stressing me out too. I wish he could have been a big part of this wedding, but instead, I’m hardly giving him a role. (He kinda made it clear that he didn’t want to help and wasn’t looking forward to it.)
Deep breath — I think that’s most of the big stuff. : / Just feeling vent-y. Thanks for listening, bees. 🙂
