Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE is annoying the shit out of me. Fiance and I almost never argue and we got into somewhat of a screaming match a few minutes ago. I’m just unbelievably irritated for some reason. I’m sure it has something to do with the enormous amount of stress that I’m under and my mile long to-do list that I have to accomplish in the next 7 days. I had planned to run a few errands tonight so that I could lighten my load for tomorrow but Fiance ended up going over to his parents to drop something off (we only have 1 car). He said he would be quick but I guarantee that they talk and talk and talk and talk then before ya know it, it’s 8pm and all of the shit that I wanted to accomplish can’t be done because everywhere is closed.
I’m just annoyed and tired and sick of being pulled in a million f’ing directions. As much as I’m thrilled to get married and see all of my HARD work come together, I’m totally ready for this wedding to be over so I can have my sanity back.
Anyone else in the same boat?

oh i was the same way. i pretty much hated everyone and anyone who asked me anything got their heads ripped off. i thought i had done pretty well not being too stressed out but i lost it the week before. stuff that i had told people to do weeks before decided 3 days before the wedding was the appropiate time to start. so they were stressed and i was stressed. but the day before just take a deep breath and have a nice rehersal dinner and the day of everything will be fine. and when someone asks you something delegate it out to a Maid/Matron of Honor or Bridesmaid or Best Man. smile and say….ask xyz. helps a lot!
good luck and it will be amazing!

I’ve been so calm this whole time, something just snapped. Everyone thought I was going to be a huge bridezilla but I proved them wrong thus far. We’ll see how these next few days pan out…

Lol, this was me the week before – Mother-In-Law decided she didn’t like the song we picked for our ceremony, she was still slightly pissy that we wanted to have a low-key rehearsal dinner at their house vs. a restaurant, my mom was more concerned about perfecting my sister’s tan lines (who was not involved in the wedding), and Darling Husband decided he wasn’t sure he liked the programs I had just spent a week designing – after I had them printed.
The day I left here to go home (wedding was in my home state) I stopped on the other side of town to pick up the programs and head home – my car wouldn’t start. I was 45 min from Darling Husband (who was at work) and had to pick up my dress 2 hours away. Had to walk 3 blocks to a store to get a toothbrush, water, and baking soda to clean off my battery. Eventually had to get a jump anyway. Skipped the rest of my errands to drive straight to the car place at home (2 hours away) got it there, parked it, shut it off – realized the windows were down and tried to start it to put them up – wouldn’t start.
The day before I’m literally running from appt to appt and I’m getting texts and calls – what time is rehearsal, where’s the wedding, when’s the wedding? MotherF*****! Did you not read the THREE emails I sent?? Did you not read the invite? DO NOT CALL ME THE DAY BEFORE THE WEDDING ASKING STUPID QUESTIONS!
So in short, yes, I have been where you are – and you do survive!

@UpstateCait: I have been like that too! I’ve stopped caring completely, and am pretty damn bitchy!! my Fiance got irritated with me like 3 days ago and we just spoke to each other for the first time since then earlier today… lol I didn’t really mind the silence for a little while!

Yup!!! Right there with ya girl.
I’m hoping I can get a lot accomplished this week without anyone getting in my way (i took it off of work) otherwise, just let the day come, and be fun and then be OVER.

@UpstateCait: I was thinking about you and your fast approaching wedding. I haven’t seen you much on the boards but I totally understand why.
Your wedding will be beautiful. You have done so many great projects.
Just take lots of deep breaths this week and think ” This too shall pass”.

@hisgoosiegirl: Oh god, that sounds like a nightmare. We just had to get new brakes last week since ours were making some seriously crazy noises. Yay for another hefty bill to pay!
@julies1949: My lack of board activity is definitely attributed to my stress level and my pile of projects that I still have to complete. Thanks though! 🙂 I know it will all come together and everything will be beautiful. It’s just getting there that’s making me pull my hair out.
@.twist.: I’m jealous that you have the week off. I was going to take off Tues-Friday but ended up taking off a day last week so I could schedule some daytime vendor meetings. I got a ton accomplished but I still wish I had an extra day off this week. I have off Wednesday-Friday but between airport runs and a bunch of last minute appointments, I don’t know how I’ll get anything accomplished. I see a lot of sleepless nights in my future.
@jillieb: I’ve really been trying to curb my bitchiness but it’s not easy. I misplaced the earrings that my mom is going to wear for the wedding (they’re my earrings but they’re white gold and they won’t match my dress so she’s wearing them) and she seriously called me 5+ times yesterday to see if I found them. After the third time she called I told her that I would let HER know when I found them but that didn’t stop her from calling me two more times. I finally freaked out on her the 5th time. I’m not proud of it but seriously… don’t call me 5 f’ing times!
@seven12: & @iheartnerds: We just have to remember that our days will be perfect (or atleast close to) and we’ll be marrying our best friends. That’s all that gets me through this stress.
Oh so you know how I said that I would be sitting around until 8pm for him to get home because he’ll be gabbing with his parents… yea, it was closer to midnight. It’s a good thing I rearranged my errands schedule and didn’t wait around for him to get home.

@UpstateCait:I was there, too. That last week is tough. But in a week– you will be married and it will be worth it!

@hisgoosiegirl: Hahahahah!!! I hear you on the questions! I have people asking me when the wedding is too, if it’s just a wedding or just a reception or both, WHERE is the wedding…LOL WTF! We sent save the dates, invites, FB events, and have a wedding website. You’re seriously going to text me asking WHEN IS MY WEDDING? Crazy people.
