My grogginess knows no bounds… sat down on the couch and passed out for a bit.

Adam’s playing GTA: San Andreas on his computer. It makes me wish that we had a PS2, so I could be playing it (or something equally fun and destructive, like Samurai Warriors or one of its kin.) We actually put a Playstation 2 on our wedding registry at the Bay, simply because we want one that much. Plus, we can buy the stuff off our registry after the wedding for some kind of deal (I forget how it work exactly) so if no one gets us a PS2 we can pick it up ourselves later. It will be nice to have a PS2, and maybe a tv that isn’t sucky like our current one (all red-tinged and 20 years old and blurry-like.)

We’ve realized that everything breaks down right now into two categories: Pre-Wedding and Post-Wedding. Pre-wedding is the next month and a half, where everything we do pretty much revolves around the wedding, how much money we have for the wedding, how we’re going to get everything done before the wedding, and so on. Post-wedding is our entire life from when we get back from Ontario onward. It’s the only way we can think about anything right now… little things, like post-wedding we can buy a coffee in the morning from time to time, but we can’t pre-wedding because we have to save as much money as possible. Post-wedding we can go out and have a few drinks on a patio, but pre-wedding we have to think long and hard about it before we go, and then we have to be careful how much we spend if we do decide to go. Post-wedding I’ll be able to buy some cute shoes.

A wedding of this scale (small compared to some, large compared to any weddings in my family) really does take over your entire life. I never thought it was like this. I was wrong.

    That and having children… they’re never what you think they’re going to be. But there’s sweetness in all of it. Remember to have fun on your wedding day at least. By the time you wake up the morning of, remind yourself of one thing: “nothing I can do now… things might go wrong… but there’s nothing I can do now.” That way, you can enjoy the day!

    I also found that starting in on the wine by 11 am on the wedding day really helped. 😉

    “A wedding of this scale (small compared to some, large compared to any weddings in my family) really does take over your entire life. I never thought it was like this. I was wrong.”

    You were wrong…oh so very wrong.

    I still have three months and I so feel the same way. 🙂
    Hang in there!!
