…my wedding that is! I can’t believe it is a little over 4 months away! Knowing it is this close makes me so incredibly happy and excited. I have dreamed of this day my entire life, and I can’t wait to share it with everyone I love.
When planning a wedding, it is extremely stressful at the beginning of the process, making sure you have the flowers, the dress, the location, but then it dies down. For the past few months, I have done things here and there, but have really slacked. Of course there were things I could be doing! After taking my trip to Oregon, I realized how much I really have to get ready and still have left to get! The last few months are extremely important with final details and making sure your wedding will look exactly like you want!
Enter: lists! Lots and lots of lists! I have a list for every part of our day and the days leading up to it. I have lists for things my mom can help with, and lists for Aaron and I. I live off of lists. I always get a sense of accomplishment when I can cross something off!
With lists, though, comes stress. I am sure I have mentioned it before, but I am not a procrastinator. When I know something needs done, I do it, even if it isn’t due for weeks. This creates more stress than I need immediately, but less stress in the long run. I have no ability to relax. It isn’t easy for me, and I always feel guilty like I should be doing something else with my time. It is something I am working on, but I just feel better tackling things right away.
Needless to say, I have a lot of things that I have determined need done before our wedding, and that I want to get done at this second. I love that our wedding is coming up, and I know I don’t need to get all these things done right now, but I really do enjoy doing them anyway! My mom is a huge help, so between her and I, I know we can get things crossed off!
With that being said, I cannot guarantee how my blogging schedule will look for the next few weeks! I am still going to try my best to keep to my normal schedule (twice during the weekdays, usually once on Saturday and Sunday), mostly because I love it, and I usually have that much to say! It just comes down to how much time I have at night, and how my stress levels are! Hopefully I can manage to get things crossed off soon and feel a lot better about my lists. There are some major things that need done right now, though, and that I will feel a huge sense of relief when they are! For one, buying a house! Haha Maybe we’ll get that soon so we can finish our registry!
Sorry for the rambling, but that is where I am at now! I would rather get these things tackled before our boat comes out and goes into the river so I can spend more time on it! Priorities, priorities!
Do you have the same feeling with to do lists?
Do you write every tiny thing on a to do list just so you can cross it off?
Are there times when you feel really overwhelmed when thinking of everything that needs done?
