With my wedding less than a week away, I’ve been doing my best to get everything done while trying not to get overwhelmed or stressed out.  But of course, because it is last minute, I am being hit with curve balls from every direction — all of the unpredictables and the things that can be predicted, but that people don’t realize holds up a number of things without prompt response.  Whatever it is, you can’t control it. You just have to roll with it and know that you are almost there.

That’s been my experience at least.  I’ve been sitting on the edge of my seat, waiting for the next ball to drop, the next to do alert.  But the truth is, most of what I need to do is to take care of myself.  Yes, there are still some logistical things to do, but it doesn’t have to take up all my time.

But I’ve grown so used to spending every minute I’m not at work doing something related to this day.  Other engaged and newly married friends say that it’s a full time, unpaid job, and I totally agree.  So the other night, when I tried to lie down on the couch and watch tv, I couldn’t calm down.  I couldn’t just lay there.  I was wasting precious time. There had to be something I could be doing to make sure my day went off with very few hitches.  But no, I argued with myself. No, you need to lie here and take it easy.  But then this phone call comes, or that phone call.  It’s just a lot.  It’s more than I ever imagined.

So for now, I will keep trying to relax when I’m not working.  I’ve come this far.  Only a little bit further to the big day, and what follows will be a relaxing honeymoon in Hawaii.  I foresee a lot of lying in the sun, truly relaxed, in the near future.
