That seems to best describe how I feel right now - totally overwhelmed. I'm sure, like everything else, this, too, shall pass. I spent another day yesterday with Sandra dress shopping. I found a dress and jacket I really liked, placed the order, paid my deposit and an additional $50 for rush delivery and felt like the weight of the world had been taken off my shoulders.
I wasn't home more than 10 minutes when the dress store called to tell me they couldn't get that outfit in time for the wedding - they could get it in a different colour, but not the colour I wanted. So, I did what any self-respecting mother of the bride would do. I burst into tears and went to bed. Poor Leo didn't quite know what to do. We usually go out for dinner on Friday nights and he poked his head around the bedroom door long enough to say - I guess we're not going out? No, we're not going out!
I went out again today and I found a dress. I don't like it quite as much as the one I ordered yesterday, but I do like it and this one was in stock, fit me perfectly without having to cut 2 feet off the bottom and it's now hanging in my closet. Besides, this isn't my day, it's theirs and all I want is a beautiful day filled with memories for both of them.
Now I can stop stressing about my outfit and start stressing about something else - like the fact I have to work 5 days next week :-)
This may sound crazy, but I also feel a certain obligation to "produce" something to feature in my blog. I guess that's where the "blogging without obligation" ring came from. From now until November, all I may be producing are pictures of my baby - you can't say you haven't been warned.
