I'm almost there...just a couple more days to go. I think we've been through about everything planning this wedding, but we're almost to the finish line now.
So...this past week, I was sick, sick, sick with a sinus infection, but happily, an antibiotic is helping clear that up. THEN, I unexpectedly got asked to fly across the country for a job interview...for an AMAZING job. My FI told me to go for it, so I spent 3 days flying and interviewing...the week before our wedding!! He jumped in and did a lot on the preparations. My mother is now speaking to me, which is a huge step forward. The rest of the family still isn't and none of them are coming. Still, I'm just happy that my mother is back in my life. (My family has issues with my groom's racial and religion and our religious practices.)
Now...it has been raining all week and we have a 40% chance of rain on Sunday. Our wedding and our reception are outdoors. We live in an area where extended rainy days like this, this time of year, are very unusual and indoor venues tough to find and expensive. Our rainy day plan is to have the ceremony in our living room instead of the beach.
And...you know what? It's ok. If I were the same person when I got married the first time, I'd be pulling my hair out. Instead, I'm shrugging and saying, "So? We'll still be married, even if it's in our living room. We can always get dressed up and take some pictures on the beach later on." Things that would have seemed like such a big deal, seem like such a nonissue now.
I think it's because I am more focused on BEING married than GETTING married. Sure, I'd love everything to be perfect, but, even if nothing is perfect, we'll still be together and I'll still be his Mrs.
