  • Wedding: November 2008

i’ll be doing a major relocation after the wedding to move where he currently lives, so i plan to put in my resignation the beginning of September. Last day of work to be Sept 30th. so i’ll have the whole month of October to focus on myself, any loose ends, friends and family, and get myself packed and moved before my November 1st wedding.

very few get a month off before, so i consider myself blessed. i’ll be quite busy that month so i pray things are all calm the week before!

My last day of summer school is July 24th, the wedding is on August 9th — so I have a little time to decompress and get things done.  I am in the middle of a Master’s program, and my last summer clas ends on July 17th, so my schedule actually frees up quite a bit after that.  Summer school ends at 1 in the afternoon and we don’t teach on Fridays, so it isn’t too bad.  Right now I am running around ragged — so I can’t wait until the end of July!

I’m taking 3 days off before the wedding and the Monday after… For our honeymoon, a week later, I’m taking off another week.

My wedding is 12 hours away from where I am, so I’m planning on taking about a week and a half off before the wedding to drive home, finish any last minute projects and have a few days before the wedding to hang out and relax. My major project of the year is due middle of July and I’m going to need a break after that as well, so that’s why the week and a half. We’re coming back for a week of work after the wedding before leaving for 8 days on our honeymoon.

I’m taking off 3 days before my Saturday wedding, and the next week for my honeymoon.  The main reason for the 3 days beforehand is to spend time with my family, almost all of whom will be visiting from the other coast.  It’s coming up in like 3 weeks–OMG I can’t believe I’m about to get married!!!!

I took 1 day off but I wish I could have taken at least 2.

As for my daughter, she is in daycare full time, so when I took my day off I brought her to school at the time she normally goes.  #1-to keep her on her "regular schedule"  #2-to give me free time to finish up the details.

We both took a week off before the wedding and that was perfect.

I’m also relocating to move to where FH recently got a job (7 hours away from where I am now).  So I’m quitting work 2 weeks before my wedding which should give me time to move most of my stuff down and finish up wedding stuff.  I also want to generally relax and spend time with all the family and friends that I’m moving away from.
