Ha! I’m the same way. I just want it to get done!

It helps to have another MAJOR distraction. I know you are being careful and not spending money, but honestly for me it’s vacation that starts next friday. But if i’m tired of thinking of both…

I put together inspiration boards of what I want rooms in my future home to be like, for themed cocktail parties, I read magazines, and I post on here on the “non-wedding” stuff. It usually helps!

Centering activities like your karate are good for what you need- but you are probably too familiar with that routine to stimulate the area of your brain that is craving stimulation.  Several activities that I have used to focus are archery, driving at the golf range, and target shooting with pistols.  Besides for not being able to hit the side of a barn… the bang and power of shooting draws out a wave of good adrenaline for me. If your brain is wired right now to only think about the wedding, you are going to be set up more easily for a little depression after you come back from your honeymoon.

That happens to me about one time a month… I will get so stressed just seeing that a tv show about weddings is on it drives me crazy so I take a week off from everything planning so by the time the following week comes im excited to do it. Try to relax dont do anything wedding related including come on the bee (Lol) you seem so active! you just need to simmer down a bit, You have plenty of time as long as the major stuff is out of the way. : )

When I consciously tried not to think about weddings, I couldn’t do it either. What worked for me was focusing on other stuff – errands for  the apt, making plans with friends, travel plans, work, exploring NYC with Fiance…so not one other big project, but just lots of smaller things.

I think everyone planning their wedding is consumed with wedding thoughts. Things you have to do. Payments you have to make. Timelines, music lists etc. There are so many details that I find it hard not to think wedding all day every day. I really haven’t found any other way around it!

DEFINITELY not alone!

I sit in class and in my head write and rewrite what’s going to be on our website, which is my big right-now project. 🙂 You can guess how that’s affecting my studies…

It’s hard to turn it off! Because 1) it DOES need to get done, 2) it’s a big deal!, and 3) you get in the habit of thinking about it. all the freaking time. and then it’s hard to break that habit.

Sigh. I am so tired of thinking about wedding stuff that I’m making myself cranky. We ordered our invitations today, FINALLY. I’m so glad to be DONE with that.
