Stressed out bride

Stressed out!! I need an outlet for this stress. It keeps coming and it keeps escalating. Bills!! Plans!! Packing/selling my condo!! Wedding!! Besides the bills - it's good things - I'm excited to move on to the next phase of my life...but all the details of all of it together....AGH! My goal is to have my house sold by Labor Day. That's 2 months. I sure hope it sells quicker than that - I guess only time will tell. If you are reading this - say a prayer for me please.

On top of everything else - John tore his hamstring on Monday playing softball. So he is hurting, and is upset because certain people in his world were born without an ounce of sympathy and with their heads permanently up their.... Ugh...Anyway - Our honeymoon can't come soon enough!! I need the time off just to chill. Even though we have a few days off next month...those will be pretty hectic. I want to be on a beach or in a snowy cabin somewhere doing nothing but celebrating our marriage and letting the stress of the last few years melt away.

I hate that it is so stressful too because this is one of the best times of our lives that we are supposed to be enjoying the journey...and we are - but the stress is just overwhelming sometimes.

On a happy note - Rocky and Keli were supposed to deliver Landon tonight...I'm waiting to see if that happened...Amidst all the chaos comes a little innocent baby.... We got to see and hold Mark and Amy's 2 week old Sasha the other day....and John got to hold his cousin's baby Avery (18 months)....Babies find joy in the simplest of things... They show life full of promise and inspire us to keep trying...

LOL no eloping here...We are both looking forward to our wedding and all the events that come along with it...this is just a vent because sometimes there are 50 million things that have to be taken care of RIGHT NOW...and it gets overwhelming.
