In just two weeks Ri and Superman will be getting married.
Am I stressed out? About to lose my mind? Freaking out over all the stuff that still needs to be done? Agonizing over losing my baby?
Trust me, I've heard all these questions lately. And the answer?
Well, lets take it one question at a time.
No - I'm not particularly stressed out. Occasionally something will come up that momentarily bothers me, but I just take a second to remind myself that absolutely nothing can happen with regard to this wedding that will stop the world from spinning on it's axis. Plus, I've been planning, organizing, purchasing, and making stuff slowly for several months just to keep things from getting any crazier than they have to here at the end, and so far, my plan has worked out just fine.
No - I'm not about to lose my mind. I did that years ago. It's much easier to function in a crazy world if you're a little abnormal anyway.
No - Sure there are some things left to be done, but all of the really big stuff has been done and even if some of the little stuff doesn't make it in the final cut, they'll still be able to get married, and the marriage is much more important than the wedding.
No - I'm not an emotional basket case because "I'm losing my baby." I'm not losing her. I know exactly where she'll be. I see it as kind of a long term version of what happens the first time they take off driving somewhere without you. Yes, you are worried about them, but things will go along much better if you get busy doing something and don't sit there and fret about the fact that they are on the road with a bunch of crazy people. Besides, as I mentioned before, I'm really excited for her.
And, when it all comes down to it and you're really having trouble coping with something, inhale deeply once or twice, and take a moment to pray for peace of mind, solutions to problems, your child's safety and future, or for all of the above.
