TGIF ladies, TGIF indeed ;-)
Well we know that this has been a trying week for FI & I yet, by the Grace & Mercy of God we are pulling through. I wanted to thank you for allowing me to vent (some via email, phone;-) & by way of this forum). It wasn't until this week that I understood why people would say "that planning a wedding brings out the worst in people" however; unfortunately I do now. I think, well I know the part that bothered me the most are the sacrifices that I have made along with my giving nature, and the fact that I totally felt that I was being taking advantage of. But just as my mom said "Sometimes you have to take a step back, so that others will take a step forward. Because all too often, people will continue to allow you to do, in order for them to hold onto their own." Because of the way that I am built, I don't take kindly to people of this nature (and I let it be known) but that's me. So step back I did (although I'm struggling with that as I'm a doer by nature).
So, with a non-DIYing house as everything and I do mean EVERYTHING is packed up along with no "visual" perception that I am wedding planning things are gradually being done. I can go on and on about why men wait to do stuff etc.. but I dont' think this forum has enough room LOL My future step-daughter even sent me a text asking what my son wants for Christmas (baffling). With that alone I had to remind myself that FI & I are the ones to be married and although this is very urgent to us, to others it is not nor will it be no matter how angry you get.
So, this morning (the last day of my bulk printing for work reasons), I came in at 7 to print off our guestbook notecards (these are 8 different 4x6 cards with 4 different butterfly pictures & 4 different Beachy/Cancun pictures, that the guest will leave their wedding wishes. I will have them laminated after all is said and done to preserve them.-see below) and the 2nd page of our wedding program which list the bridal party etc..however my step-daughter's name or my cousin's name are included nor will there be a reprint.
Have a great weekend ladies....oh and yes, when I get home these will be boxed up
