Even though my wedding is still 8.5 months away, I feel as though my little to-do list grows by the minute. While we are in pretty good shape and our plans are slowly coming together and revealing themselves, I still feel as though there is always something to be doing with little time to spare.
Who knew this planning a wedding thing would be so similar to working in production on a film?!? Hmmm...note to self if this whole film career doesn't pan out...
This past weekend I was in Bend, OR which is a BEAUTIFUL resort town about 3.5 hours southeast of Portland. My activities in Bend looked something like this: Sleep, Shop, Eat, Drink. I kid you not - that pretty much summed it up. And it was great. Just ask my waistline.
But, as is the painful truth with most Mondays, reality been served - piping hot with a side of crap I gotta do.
In order to give some structure to my day/life/frantic mind, here are the things that I must think about/do something proactive towards today:
1) Finish collecting the last few addresses for my Save The Date cards. I have most of them, but there are always a few stragglers.
2) Call my doctor to find out why they mysteriously, out-of-nowhere sent me a bill for something they have never charged me for. If I had a dollar for every time I have had to fight it out with an insurance company, well, let me just say that my wedding attendees would all be going home with diamonds as a party favor.
3) Price out which rental company has the cheapest black wooden chairs. My Dad thinks I am insane to rent chairs. He simply cannot understand that coordinating chairs mean the world to me. Men.
4) Look for a Photoshop class that I can take. I have decided I need to brush up on my skills. I took the damn class at film school - but it seems that I have totally forgotten everything I learned. Please don't tell my student loans that.
5) GO TO THE GYM. Ugh. The hardest thing of all. I hate the gym. Have I mentioned that before? I will go. And I will sweat. And I will be very happy when it is all over.
Okay - I feel better now. My to-do list for today. I needed to get it out there - and I am so sorry for dragging you all into it. Now that I have written it out, it doesn't seem so bad. See? That is why I love lists. They take all the mumbled, jumbled mess that quickly builds itself in your head and makes it look all pretty, neat and manageable.
Now - off to get those addresses...
