Theknot.com is kind enough to include a WEEKLY email with all sorts of things you-didn't-know-you-had-to-do-but-YOU-SHOULD-HAVE-DONE-IT-YESTERDAYs and this includes every.single.thing. "necessary" for a wedding.
Now, don't get me wrong, I'm a task-oriented list-maker and there are no words to describe the pure joy I get from crossing things off my daily/weekly/hourly lists. (In fact, OKAY FINE, I admit I sometimes write things down that I've already done...just so I can cross them off. GUILTY.)
Words also cannot describe the immeasurable panic that zaps my inside to jelly when I see this breakdown:
TO-DOS ON LIST: 146 | COMPLETED TO-DOS: 42
Are you kidding me?! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!
We're two-thirds of the way done with our engagement...and I thought I was doing so well!
This, my friends, is not acceptable. Now please excuse me as I give myself heart palpitations from excessive coffee drinking and seriously test the ergonomics of this keyboard.
In other (fair and balanced) news, here's a nugget. Discuss amongst yourselves.
An excerpt from an email I just opened:
"Don't stress about things too much and enjoy all this planning - the bottom line is to give God the glory for overseeing this journey together for you and Adam! The day will be grand! Love, Mom."
And that, my friends, is called saying just the right thing at just the right time. :)
