Leaving on a get-away
This weekend will be a “girl’s weekend” with a few friends, that are the “best”. It has been a needed mini-vacation, as I appear to be slacking in the wedding prep department, and I tend to have blinders on most of the time. It seems that when I get my brain on something, I cannot entertain anything else, until I have my projects completed. With JillCards, it doesn’t get completed, because I continually get orders and have holidays and occasions arise.
Now, I’m not complaining, because that is a good sign, but everything else in my life gets put on the back burner. I have been reminded that I have a wedding to attend in May of this year. Since I will be one of the brides (Mrs & Mrs), I guess I need to do more than just attend. I am a person who waits till the last-minute, but I have grudgingly admitted and confessed last night that this is not one of the occasions that I can wait till the last-minute for, and still pull it off.
Okay, okay! I am turning over a new leaf (haven’t heard that one before!) and putting everything else on the back burner, until I have equally done my part for this wonderful wedding; even though Dee Dee is at the point of more than half way over the line of her equal part.
Last night I made some DEMO wedding announcements, for opinions and feedback. That leads me to this get-away weekend with the best of the best. I am hoping to have a final decision on “the one”, and starting next week, I can get a good start on the bulk of the invitations. I’m really hoping to get a lot of the things we need for the ceremony, reception and dance! Most of this event will be a hand-made/home-made adventure, and since I have confessed my lack of attention to this event, I feel much better and relieved now to get it going. The hardest part for me is the confession of my character defects. The only problem I have is that most of the time I do not even see my character defects until it’s right there staring me in the face, and taking on a life of its own.
Wish me luck in the wedding prep department, and have a good weekend. I know I will with “the girls”!
