- Wedding: April 2012
I read the post from the Bee whose roommate griped about hearing about wedding “all of the time”
I have made a more than conscious effort to talk about my wedding as little as possible with my friends. I make sure I ask them about everything in their lives and chat about my life outside of what is currently THE BIGGEST FREAKING DEAL IN MY LIFE.
And I have noticed even after all that if I mention the “W” word the eye rolling and sighing commences. Now I am 42 years old so this is not young women drama/envy.
I am tired of feeling guilty about it. It is my wedding. It is important to me and a big giant wonderful special step in my life. And I will talk about it from time to time. I have listened to your divorce stories, taken phone calls at insane hours because your infant has a 2 degree fever, offered to shave my head when you found out you had breast cancer and have been there for each and everyone of you for more than just “1 day”. None of you ever ask me – how is the wedding planning going or are you excited or tell me about your colors etc.
And I promise I will keep being there but if I see you roll your eyes or sigh or say anything about it being just 1 day I am going to list out everytime I have been there and cared about you
Ok getting off my soapbox now if anyone wants to climb up and do an Amen chorus 🙂
