@Future_Ms.Bostonceltics:  i’m not good at answering questions like this. the only motivation i can think of is if you want these things, then they have to get done. either you’re going to do it or you can pay someone else to do it. the choice is yours but the worse thing you can do is NOTHING. get movin!

I hear ya! Try to pick one project and finish it THEN move on to another project. Basicially work on one project at a time but set a timeline. For instance, this week I want to finish the bathroom baskets, chair signs, and finish assembling hanging pom poms. Tonight I am going to work on and finish the chair signs since I already have everything I need for them. Tomorrow, I’m going to buy the rest of the stuff for the bathroom baskets and finish them. Thursday, I am going to work on and finish hanging pom poms.

Just pick one tasks at a time, and then enjoy feeling good once it is complete.  It will all get done.

@Future_Ms.Bostonceltics:  I was feeling really overwhelmed (I still have a lot of the same things to do as you!) and basically started freaking out to my FI.  He sat down with me and my giant list and helped me make a timeline for WHEN and BY WHOM each thing was going to get done – including him doing a lot of them.  

It was really nice to feel like I’m not carrying this whole load myself, you know?  Can you two do something similar?  It’s his wedding too, and it’s only a month a way.  Time to step up to the plate, buddy!
