Well I don’t really have time to write but I felt like I should blog one more time before the wedding. I am here in my apartment and all is quiet. I am enjoying this little bit of alone time. I sent all the bridesmaids off to help set up for the rehearsal dinner, and I am just waiting for Beth to get here before we join them. Then the bridesmaids’ luncheon, manicures and pedicures, and rehearsal dinner… And so it begins!
It’s been crazy here these past few days. My hormones have been all out of whack and so I am even more stressed than normal. I have received word from two different people we were counting on who aren’t coming, which is frustrating to be trying to find someone else to fill their roles at this late notice (it’s all okay now). I also have been hearing a lot of complaints about the high gas prices and the cost of making a trip and I can’t help but feel bad. :-( I wish I could pay everyone’s way. I guess I get confused because when I make a trip, I just view cost of gas as a necessary expense – and if I don’t get to do some other things, then it’s worth it to me. I’ve never stressed about gas prices. Maybe I should worry about that more?
But enough of that. I don’t need this added stress. I just have to focus on making sure I get through today, and get through tomorrow, and then it’s all over. Wow, tomorrow…!!! I can’t believe this is happening. I’m kinda scared; my life is going to change forever. I’m excited of course, but I realize there’s no going back! For the rest of my life I am obligated and responsible to someone else. Not that I mind, it’s just different than this past year.
Well, so long readers! This is my last post as “Ashley P”. When I return in a week or so I will be “Ashley B” and I will have a husband. Wow!
