Man oh man this month has KICKED MY BUTT. February always does that to me, the month of love is very tiring apparently. And has lots of Birthdays in it. And this weather, UGH! Good thing I have running buddies who have lived in Minnesota before, we have still been hitting the trail and slowly increasing our mileage.
Also a good thing that my 530am Crossfit group is so stinking fun. They make that 440am alarm not so bad at all.
You know what is so crazy to me? I find myself saying very often “I will have more time when ________ is done”. But the truth is, life just never stops. I give up one thing to have more time and it gets filled almost immediately without me even trying to fill it. One busy chapter ends and another busier one begins. Just goes to show that you truly have to make time NOW for things that are important, because life doesn’t slow down.
Between AU being insane right now, grad school and a busy social calendar, my schedule has been packed. Oh yea and that whole wedding planning thing…vomit. Yes, I still hate it and nobody can make me love it okay? I love that I have a big amazing huge family but I don’t love that we cannot afford to invite them all. I don’t love that everybody has an opinion on what you should do and they don’t care if they hurt your feelings by criticizing your choices. I don’t love that people get upset with the stupidest things.
Why do people care about weddings so much? Oh right, the most important day of our life thing. As you already know, I don’t agree with that. Weddings are a way for people to celebrate with families, but they often end up causing more turmoil than good. Emotionally, financially etc. We are sticking to our guns and keeping things simple as humanly possible. Our wedding won’t be “different” or “unique”. It will be us.
Sometimes I wish I could just blink my eyes and BAM be married and have this whole process be over. Then everybody I love goes back to being normal instead of possessed with wedding syndrome. You have never heard of wedding syndrome? It is a thing trust me …and there are not any vaccinations for it either.
However, there ARE some things I am getting excited about. I am pumped that it is looking like we can actually pull this shin-dig off under budget. I am also SO excited that…WE FOUND A BEER TRUCK!! And by “we” I mean my awesome co-worker gave me a lead on a tavern that rents them out. Best news ever. Helloooooo Summer Shandy! Perhaps it seems odd to have a beer truck at a wedding. But you probably wouldn’t think it was odd if there was a beer truck at a backyard BBQ? Or a summer festival? Right? SEE I TOLD YOU WEDDINGS MESS WITH PEOPLE’S HEADS.
That is all. Stay blessed in the COLD (and mess)!
