I have been engaged for 5 days, and wedding planning already seems crazy, stressful, and overwhelming. I already feel pulled in a million different directions. There are just so many options and so many things that I feel like I’m suppose to do that its hard to sort out what I actually want to do. Do we go super tiny family only? Or do we throw a rager with everyone we know? Do we serve a traditional sit down meal or delicious fried food and burgers? I haven’t figured any of this out yet but people are already asking if we’ve set a date. I need a wee bit more time to figure this out before I get to the date part of the equation.
Also I miss my ring. I sent it back to get resized yesterday, and I already miss it like crazy. I never thought I would be one of those girls who gets super attached to her ring. I haven’t worn a ring since I got my high school one back in the early 2000’s. And I only bothered to wear that one for a day or two before it got stuffed in my jewelry box and forgotten. But I really miss my engagement ring, and I want it back. I have been obsessively checking the Fed Ex tracker to make sure it arrives safely. (It is currently on schedule) I will continue to do this until I have it safely back in hand.
So here’s what I’m going to do. I’m not looking at anything weddings for the rest of the night. I’m not even ordering those books recommended on A Practical Wedding. Instead I will have a very large glass of red wine and knit socks, specifically socks for my now fiance because I love him and he loves the socks I knit him. Then I am going to cuddle my fiance, even though he’s sick, because cuddles make everything better and he is an excellent cuddler.
