I have so neglected this blog lately. I've been trying to keep up with some of my blog reading when I can, but I have missed writing here so much. There has just been so much to be done lately. Work is....well, total insanity most days. And not in a great way. I am trying to remember to breathe and take it one day at a time. Sometimes one HOUR at a time. And keep on, keepin' on.
But it has caused me a ton of stress. And that on-the-job stress has slowly bled out into my out-of-work life. I'm still feeling like I am running around like a crazy person and generally freaking out over something or another. I can't seem to get myself to maintain any semblance of calm or serenity. I feel like a bundle of nerves and constantly on edge. The other night I was awake from 3am-6am with my mind just racing and racing.
I am hoping that October might bring some relief. I can't say I am confident that it will but I am trying to be hopeful! The month is starting out with the latest thing I am freaking out about.
Meeting MVP's family.
I know back in August I had this whole moment that I wasn't freaking out about him meeting my parents, you know....until I was freaking out. But notice he met my parents.
Starting tonight I will be meeting MVP's family.
His sister is getting married on Saturday in Charleston and we are flying there later this afternoon. I am not gonna lie...I have been super stressed about the trip all week. I had a fashion show with L the other night to select outfits that were "Meet the Family" appropriate. I've been lining up things to talk about in my head. I need to practice being smiley. I feel like sorority recruitment all over again.
There are many reasons I am stressed -- some are legit and some I know are just me being a huge ball of nervousness. I am sure in the end it will all be just fine. After all, it's a wedding so I am definitely not the main attraction :) So I think that takes a lot of the pressure off of me.
I was racing around this morning packing up my last minute things when my phone buzzed. It was a message from MVP's sister saying she was looking forward to meeting me and excited I could join them for all the wedding festivities. The Bride, with likely a million and three to do's on her to do list 2 days before her wedding. A person who has every right to be stressed and freaking out. She took some time out of her morning to track me down on facebook and send me a sweet message. I knew I was going to like MVP's family but that gesture was beyond wonderful.
So wish me luck, bloggy friends! I need to put my nerves aside and stop freaking out for a few days. Shouldn't be TOO hard...after all, we'll be in Charleston...
Happy Weekend + Gems
