- Wedding: October 2012
I just need somewhere to vent for a second. My Fiance and I evacuated to my mothers house for the storm because my mother, sister and her three kids would be there alone. We all had to be evacuated by boat from my mothers house (4 adults, 3 kids & 5 dogs). I brought all of my wedding stuff to my moms. We eventually got it all out but I’m worried my invitations smell. My dress is at the dress shop getting alterations. I think they still don’t have power. Who knows how backed up the alterations department is now. I have no idea about the status of my venue or any of my vendors. My DJ lives in an area that flooded badly. The wedding is in 39 days. We have so much left to do. Now my parents and their two dogs are living in our 900 sq ft house. My parents house will have to be completely gutted. We’ve spent the last three days there gutting everything. The house I grew up in is gone. Even if I had time to think about the wedding I couldn’t. My car and my FIs car flooded. All I can think about is how worried I was about my sisters children and the look of fear in my dogs eyes when we were in the boat. I never thought I would experience something like this. I thought the stress of wedding planning alone would make me go crazy. I’m not sure how I’ll handle the stress of all this too.
Sorry to be a downer. I just needed to get this out.
