8 days til the wedding...

I've had a cold for a week now, and it's not the kind of sick where you lose weight because you're puking and can't eat anything, it's the kind of cold where the only time you DON'T feel like puking is when you're eating, so it's the get completely fat AND look like sh1t cold. My little brother had to be tested for H1N1 a couple days ago. Half of my daughter's school is out sick with "flu like illnesses". I still have a ton of crap to do for the wedding. I have two presentations that I have to start AND finish and turn in by Saturday (tomorrow). I still haven't bothered to look for jewelry, and I can't say I even give a flying rat's posterior about it. I'm sure the marriage will still be valid if I'm not wearing a necklace. OH... and that reminds me... I forgot to order FI's ring and we still haven't made time to go get the license. GO ME. Anyone have Dr. Kevorkian's number handy?

    Stress will only make you sicker. Deep breathing and do what you can- try try try not to stress about what is just out of your hands. And if you want to smack me after that I understand, but my wedding is in 9 days so I really do feel your pain.

    I hope you squeeze in rest time otherwise you'll guarantee getting yourself sick. Can you asked for a delay on the presentations? Can your FI finish some of the final wedding stuff without you?

    Same thing happened to me, it's fun, huh?Okay, here's what you do. Look at your to-do list. Figure out anything that you don't NEED. Like jewelry. Don't worry about any of that, if you have time to do it, you'll do it.Or, you can assign jobs to friends. Like someone who has great taste in jewelry can go shopping for you, or can loan you a necklace. Try not to worry too much. My H1N1 relapsed, probably because of the stress. It's worse the second time, FYI. So, get some rest now and get it out of your system.

    I checked in with the conference director... he's holding off as long as possible, but the files need to go to the printer on Monday morning. :( I'm offloading as much as I can to FI and he's being great about it. I hate stress.
