Yoga, Anyone??

I need to focus.

I'm stressing out about stupid crap that I'm not even going to list here because I can't articulate all of it. It's all centered around the wedding, and it's starting to consume my Monday thinking every week.

I need to sit down and write a checklist of what has to get done and cross it off as we get it done. Maybe, that will help me to calm the heck down.

I'm taking a class this semester that I HAVE to do well in. So far I have a 94 average and I get another test back tomorrow. If I keep stressing about all the wedding stuff that I don't need to stress over, I won't be able to focus on this class. I don't know how Sarah took doctoral courses while planning her wedding - I can barely focus on my ONE undergrad class.

This is ONE DAY!!! One important day that starts our forever, yes. But no matter how perfect we want it to be is it worth stressing out over some of the stupid crap I find myself stressing over??? Probably not... probably not. I'll probably look back on some of this crap in a year and say "WHY did I even care about that??" The hard part is done - finding someone that I want to spend the rest of my life with. That's done. Everything else is just details.

Guh. Deep breaths.

Here's something that's worth stressing about: doing some research into owning a hedgehog as a pet and convince Steve it's a good idea to get one after the wedding. There's something worth stressing over.

Get one! I'll be its babysitter if you every have to go away! You should check out the MSPCA in Methuen. If you trick Steve into going there and holding one, and remind him they're cheaper there and he's helping the poor little guy, it just might work! Oh, wait. Steve can read this, can't he? :-)

Yes, he can. :)

We're actually going to do the responsible thing and do research into cost of buying and keeping a hedgehog, as well as what goes into taking care of them (any potential health problems, etc.). And by "we" I mean "I", and then giving Steve a presentation in September. :)

So maybe by Christmas... :)

I can guarantee you that you will ask your self "why did I worry about all of these details?!?" 10 minutes after you get married. Enjoy it for what it is! Its the celebration of one of the biggest days in anyones life. Just dont miss the forest for the trees!

Plus, i say if he can have fish, you an have a hedgehog :)

Yar, I agree with Doug. But then, we are men. Men don't spend their lives from age 3 planning our wedding day and how many kids we'll have and what our tea sets will look like.

That said, I look back and realize that we could have been married at someone's backyard barbeque, and it would have meant just as much to us. Jill would be a dedicated wife even if we hadn't spent a lot.

But since it's so important to the womenz, we let you stress over using real rose petals or fake ones :)

Thanks, Doug & Ben. I really appreciate the encouragement. You guys rock. :)
