All right, finally the fabled post about what the heck has been going on with me lately.  OK, so first let me apologize again for my irregular posting.  I'd like to be posting several times per week, and I'm capable of doing so, but various things in my life have held me back.  If you've been paying attention to my posts lately, you've probably figured out that a lot has happened to my fiance and thus to me recently, and that has taken a lot of attention away from wedding plans.  I also have a lot going on in my life, mostly related to my job which let's just say I don't care for.  You might remember my cry for help about a month ago in which I pleaded for advice in my quest to get a good night's sleep.  Things got better for a while, but now I haven't had a good night's sleep in at least two weeks, and that's really wearing on me more than all of the other stuff (which was the main cause of my insomnia in the first place).

Wedding plans don't help.  I think I've mentioned before that I get stressed out easily and that I'm really worried about getting uber stressed about the wedding because, let's be honest, it happens to EVERYBODY.  This means I'd probably be better off eloping.  But that's not going to happen (though I have thought about it...a lot).  Thinking about the wedding too much right now is just another thing to keep me up at night, and that is something I really can't afford.

So I'm sorry about the erratic posting.  It will probably continue at least until I have a few things sorted out but will most likely be a trend throughout this blog.  Please don't stop reading!  I swear I will always get back on the ball, and so far, I've still been able to post at least once a week consistently.  And for those of you out there listening, I really appreciate your thoughts and advice and even just that you take the time to listen to my rants, my ideas, and my life.  I've always wanted to be a writer.  I gave up on any sort of professional writing a while ago due to my inability to sit still for more than half-an-hour, but for the first time, I'm writing about something that matters enough for me to keep going.  I'm really enjoying this blog, and I'm grateful to you for giving me a reason to keep writing.

OK, so how do you deal with stress?  Seriously, I need professional help and can't afford it, so any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

P.S.  I like comments.  Comments make me feel like there is a purpose in writing this.  As in they make me feel like I'm not writing to nobody.  Just saying...


  1. I seriously could take this post and transfer it over to my blog. It sounds like you feel exactly the way I have been feeling. So stressed out. Don't worry about not blogging. I'm a very sporadic blogger and will post a few days in a row, but then will go a week without a post. Write when you feel like writing. Those posts will be much better than ones you write because you feel you have to write something.

    I clean when I'm stressed. It helps to take my mind off things, and in the end I get a clean house... which is one less thing to stress over!

  2. Honestly, as far as the wedding planning goes - just do what you can and drop the rest without looking back. Other than the few obvious requirements for a wedding, I've decided to not worry about anything I can't have or don't have time for and focus on what I will have and can do. I've put aside the "what if's" and taken on a lof of what you said at the end of your last post - No matter what happens, I will be making memories with the man I love, and we will be in it together.

  3. I'm the same way sweetie! I've been noticing that i'm not emailing or calling people out of pure exhaustion. It aweful but sometimes the best thing to do to de-stress is to have a wedding free day, week, ect. Have a "ME" day and go do something that'll make you happy. Rent a guilty pleasure movie or pick up a good book. Make yourself a cup of chamomile tea and relax. Anything to get your mind off of whatever is making you stressed.

    Everything will work out for the best hun! keep your chin up! :)

  4. This advice will probably not be appreciated, but it sounds like you have too much stress, and my recommendation would be to put the wedding off for another year. There would be nothing wrong with waiting a little longer, until you're settled again in California and a little more financially stable. Then you would also have more familial support to help you out. Stress in wedding planning is perfectly normal, but this sounds like maybe you're not quite ready yet. Hope you're not too angry with me for saying this... :/

  5. Worry not, I'm not mad or anything, but we've put this off long enough already, and I'd rather elope tomorrow than wait two more years to get married.
