Bittersweet Day

Today is a very bittersweet day. Today I stepped down in my volunteer position with my sorority to give myself more time to plan for the wedding and more importantly, to give myself more time with my fiancee and my family.

2008 has been a full-speed-ahead type of year. If I wasn’t dashing down to Tuscaloosa to help with the sorority, I was on the phone or e-mailing with wedding vendors or at work doing my thang. It left little time to tend to housework and it left very little real quality time with my fiancee. I would come home once or twice a week exhausted, sometimes crying even, and tune him out. Or I would just want to vent and not hear what went on with his day as he struggled to find a new job and carve out his place in life before the wedding.

I also haven’t been able to spend enough time with my parents, who moved 6 miles away from me last fall. I hope for more quality time with them as well. My dad could find a new job in a new city any day, so I need to take advantage of my parents being close by for as long as possible.

It’s been extremely tough for me to give up my sorority volunteer position, but I’m about to embark on some major personal changes in my life.

So now my mom and I will be able to tie up some more loose ends with the wedding and I won’t be super stressed as the wedding date approaches. Right now we are 138 days away! Ekk!
