i'm going to be an alsbury in 50 days! no more lying to myself! seriously, everything new that i've signed up for i've been signing up as "LisaGrace Alsbury" because i know i won't want to change the username later and also that it will annoy me if my usernames are all "lgduvick" or whatever. my current username of choice is lgalsbury523 (the "523" of course represents the date that this username will actually be true)
i'm also excited to use my gmail account exclusively as i set it up as "firstname.lastname@example.org" before we even got engaged...hey, i knew i was going to marry him!
anyway, we're going to be a family soon and i am so excited for it. i think we're as ready as we can get. we've learned SO MUCH over the last year (yes, we'll have been engaged for a YEAR on monday) and are so ready to actually get to apply it.
i purposely put that "warning label" on all of my wedding updates, because i know you all don't really care and would prefer to skip over it. but i love making lists and planning our wedding so i'm writing about it anyway! humph!
i had an awful dream on monday night/tuesday morning about everything going horribly wrong at our wedding. i'll just give you a few tidbits as this was definitely the worst wedding dream i've had yet.*
i was just standing in the back of church, trying to get everyone to walk down the aisle and get the wedding started but all of the ushers/groomsmen were just sitting down, hanging out with bryan in the back rows, the bridesmaids were not to be found and the flowers girls were wearing tuxes and marching around the outside of auditorium and i couldn't get them to stop!
then a few of our guests just hopped up on stage and started raffling things off like it was a junior high school fundraiser or something. every once in a while they would say something that would make everyone cheer loudly. i didn't really care that the wedding had gone horribly awry, it was just that i was so confused and didn't know how to stop the chaos. let me tell you, it was chaos in my little dream world.
so, what did i do that day? made a list of everything i need to do. i love lists. but the list was really good, because i actually have a lot to do. but not a lot that people can help me with, which kind-of stinks, because i'm totally ready to start asking people for help. all of the things i need to do are simply communicating to the people involved.
people are so unpredictable! i have pretty much everything confirmed except for the things that involve people...and it's not that i'm not communicating...its that their not communicating back. this. this is stressful to me.
but it's definitely my fault for loving people too much and wanting everyone and their puppies to be involved in our wedding. we have 5 musicians, 8 flower girls, 4 attendants each and 5 ushers, not to mention 2 guest book ladies, and all the other poeple involved. it's stressful to not know if you can count on all of those people. it also doesn't help that we've been engaged for so stinking long that i have this sinking feeling that everyone forgot we even asked them to be in our wedding!
Ok, ok, I'm calming down, I'm done rambling! I'm excited to have everyone i love involved in our wedding. it's going to be crazy fun, i know that much! : )
*all of my other dreams are just about me sleeping in until 12:30pm (the wedding's at 1pm) and stumbling down the aisle in my pajamas.
in other news:
i started reading the harry potter series last week and am done with the first two books. they are sooooooooooooooooo good! i love reading. it relaxes me. it takes me to another world where i'm not stressed out about wedding stuff and not stressed out about not being married yet.
that's all folks!
