Jamie and Tom's Checklist (Not you?) June 06, 2008 • DAYS TO GO: 22
TO-DOS ON LIST: 184 | COMPLETED TO-DOS: 132
For some reason, my heart just dropped into my stomach when I realised that there are 21 short days left until our wedding. I am so insanely nervous I can barely concentrate. I have crazy butterflies that are making it hard to keep food down. I couldn't be more elated to be marrying the man of my dreams; that said, this is a really, really big party that we're planning, and the bigger it is, the more that can go wrong. I'm so petrified that I am forgetting some huge element of planning, but I keep checking and re-checking that horrid theknot.com checklist, and it seems more or less that things are on track. Besides, they include ridiculous items on the list, such gems as:
"Start looking into registering for gifts."
"Grooms: Start planning your groomsmen's attire: Tux or suit?"
and who could forget:
|"Brides: practice walking in your wedding shoes. "|
Crap! We still need to pick up our marriage certificate! Double-crap! We're in Wayne County, which means we have to endure the living nightmare/joke that is the Coleman A. Young Municipal Building...the dreaded City Hall...we're guaranteed to be stuck for the next 2 weeks in an eternal queue. We may just make it on time down the aisle, frantically clutching said certificate in our sweaty palms.
Oh my God that Eddie Money/Ronnie Spector song, "Take Me Home Tonight" just came on the t.v. I freaking love that song.
Stream of consciousness, much? It's probably the nerves.
I hope the Honeymoon will have the desired effect of mellowing me out following the stress that has been the past few months of planning/worrying, worrying/planning.
