FEELING VERY STRESSED

Hello Ladies! the good news is I am getting internet on at the house tomorrow so I will be back on the boards daily and get my much needed dose or PW. I have not been able to do much in the way of wedding planning for a couple months now. I just worked a 16 hour shift Friday, 12 hours Saturday and 16 hours Sunday. I am exhausted. I decided if I was going to do a PRN job I might as well work overtime at the job I am at full time. So in 3 days I worked 44 hours. I am very drained. I am getting a three day weekend coming up so that will be awesome. My girls graduating in Dec is great but I now have to do senior pictures x 2 and all their senior stuff x 2. They both got a job so one needs a car and the other one wants to trade her car because it's starting to have problems. I have not been able to save ANY money for the wedding. I know I still have plenty of time to more than cover the expenses but it's so frustrating.

Wow I dont know how you do it working 44 hours in 3 days. that makes me tired just thinking about it. My son just graduated High school in June and his entire Senior Year cost was  $5,864.  that was senior trips and prom and cap and gown and senior portraits, etc, etc,,,,,,

And in case you want some comforting advice no matter what you have saved for the wedding, something is always going to break, (the car, the washer, some thing else) so i will leave you with this

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Hope you get to relax on your three day weekend

 Hi Kim,

   I can really understand your frustrations.  I have had so many things happen and haven't been able to save what I wanted either.

Hang in there and keep plugging away at everything.  It will all eventually come together.  Maybe not exactly when you want it to but it will happen.  I had to postpone my wedding until September of 2014 from September of 2013.  It was extremely hard but it was the right thing to do.  

Not that I'm suggesting you do that AT ALL! I just wanted to share my disappointment of trials and tribulations regarding LIFE :)

I wish you all the best and hope things start looking up for you.

Thanks ladies. I have decided it's not going to do me any good to stress about it except cause myself grief. I have to believe things will turn out like they are suppose to. It's not easy but I have no choice but to keep that mind set. I will say a special shout out to BECCA. She talks to me all the time about my wedding plans and even though she is hundreds of miles away she has offered to do anything she can to help out. I work with a girl that use to own a flower shop so she has agreed to help me with flowers and also be my Day of Coordinator if I want. I just plan every little detail of things and I've had our budget laid out for a long time and when I see it's not going the way I had it laid out it's frustrating and then I start to panic that I won't get things done the way I want
