God this sucks. Should be joyous but it just isn't. I'm not even being a freak about it, because I know it will be beautiful and lovely and a good time. I just plain don't have the time to do all of this. Okay, so the procrastination monster has got to me again, but this time, I'm dealing with rigid schedules and restrictions so my whole "working better under pressure" thing is not going to cut it.

The boy has been helping lots but has not read any of those damn bridal books so is operating completely off of what I am able to express to him in hurried cell phone calls and lunch break (downs).
