- Wedding: May 2014
So for months now, I have been SUPER stressed over money. BTW……weddings are STUPID EXPENSIVE!!
We decided early in our planning that we wanted a small private Destination Wedding. Little did I know how much I would have to alter my LIFESTYLE to make this happen.
We gave up our 3 bedroom rental, and the hugely expensive bills that came with it. So we could start putting some serious cash into another seperate account, the wedding account.
Well I have been on him for weeks about opening this account. We both work crazy hours, and on a rare occasion we are off when the bank is actually open. Well an opportunity finally presented itself the last couple of days. He was off Friday and Saturday, and I asked him to take $$$ from our joint account and open a new account. I stressed I needed this done as I need to make two really large deposits this week.
I was working, so I could not go with him. Really simple instructions. Take money from here and put it over there.
I find out as I am driving down the road, 400+ miles from home that he opened the account, but didn’t put the amount of $$$$ I needed.
Now he is out of town for 3 days.
I am not on the account.
And…..this is how the conversation went.
I need that money in that account yesterday, so I can pay X and Y. He says, I am sorry I didn’t wake up in time to get all this done.
My response, Oh nevermind, I will just cancel the whole damn thing. And I hung up. And ignored his calls for most of the day.
Then I felt really STUPID!!!!
And had to apologize for being an ASS. I didn’t realize that me not anwering the phone all day would cause him to think that I possibly got in an accident for being pissy behind the wheel. Yes….sometimes I am afflicted by mild bouts of road rage. LOL, not in a bad way of course. But still….you get the idea.
I get wedding brain sometimes. And it is like nothing else matters. LOL.
My question to you bee’s is where does these brief passing moments of insanity come from?? I fully understand (now that I am being rational) that he was tired. We have similiar jobs, and I am generally useless for at least one of my two days off too. I feel even worse because both of us call the other several times throughout the day just to say I love you.
I just feel rather stupid now. I would never cancel this. I have been saving and planning and doing without to make this happen.
