So I just finished reading my last post on here, which was in March. Man, the stress I put myself under was phenomenal. And the asshat-ery that others threw in front of Big C and I was easy to deal with, when all was said and done although it sure didn't feel easy at the time. Perspective is a bitch.
I'm not going to go into a big speech about weddings and the stress brides put themselves under to have the 'perfect day'. There are already hundreds, heck, there are probably thousands of articles on the web on how to deal with wedding stress. There are a few good ones out there like this one or this one and most of them all say the same things: Relax. However you can, take yourself out of the wedding world and remind yourself that life is not about the wedding, it's about the marriage. Spa day, massage, swimming, meditating, visits with friends, etc.
Our wedding day came and flew by so fast it was unreal. From the morning we got up to arriving at the cabin for our first night as a married couple, everything was wonderful and if bad things happened, I was oblivious.
I wanted to post a few pics of our wedding day, courtesy of our AWESOME photographer, Memories by Me Photography but my laptop is being a major pain in the ass right now, so I will hopefully get them set up in my next post.
I'll also post about our honeymoon, with a few pics of our travels. We went to the U.K and Northern Ireland, with a quick day trip to Paris thrown in for good measure.
And then the grand finale, as if the title of this post couldn't give it away... We're expecting baby #1 in late February! I haven't taken any pregnancy pics, mostly because I just think it's a waste of pictures, cuz who wants to see yet ANOTHER pregnancy photo? But I would like to talk about some of the experiences I've had since getting pregnant.
Today I've been working on some treasury stuff for a non-profit that I volunteer for. Anyone who knows me is probably baffled by that sentence because A) I hate math, numbers and all things accounting and B) I HATE MATH, NUMBERS AND ALL THINGS ACCOUNTING.
It's not so terrible, it's just that I'm not good at it. If one number doesn't add up right, or isn't accounted for, I'm hooped. I can't find it. I don't want to find it. Ask me to weave a story, or go crafting, or shopping for that hard-to-buy-for-person, or ANYTHING and I'll do it. I'll even do accounting. But that doesn't mean I'll like it, or that I'll do a good job at it.
So the point is, I'm trying to get this bookwork done this weekend so we can have our meeting and I can stop thinking about it until March, which is when the whole thing starts over again. It's my first year doing this so it's all cocked up, but now that I know the ropes a bit better, I can do a better job of it next year.
