no wonder i haven't been keeping up

on dishes and laundry! A week ago, I made myself a list of all the stuff I have to do between now and the wedding. I'm a procrastinator, so I broke it up into sections to give myself lots of deadlines. The list is so long that it sorta makes me understand why people plan weddings so far in advance, but I think three months is perfect for me.

Otherwise I'd have obsessed about wedding planning like this for a couple of years, without ever accomplishing much, and I would still end up doing exactly what I'm doing now, which is rushing to get it all done at the last minute. That's what I meant when I told Will that I just wanted to get it over with instead of waiting until next summer or something. Plus, I'm totally in love with him and excited to have a husband. Plus there's that whole health care thing.

Anyway, here's what I've done in the last 6 days:
follow up with the scavenger hunt guy
talk to S about M helping at the reception
follow up with L about helping
send my dad the link with sheet music (he's playing flute at our ceremony)
figure out shirt for Will and buy it
order shirts for 2 boys
order dress for 1 girl
book the park for the rehearsal dinner bbq
update website with accomodation info
figure out where we're spending the night on our honeymoon
update wedding registry
confirm flowers with farmer lady
email everyone at work to save jars
start collecting jars
reserve kennel for the dog
get fabric for napkins
plan date and tell my mom who to invite to flowermaking party
work on figuring out ceremony readings
find out about marriage license rules
figure out tripod for diy photobooth
get backdrops for diy photobooth
finalize ring order/finish paying for rings
make and test four different sangria recipes

Whew! See what I mean about housework going by the wayside? It would be different if I weren't working full time and we didn't have 4 kids! We spent half the weekend playing laser tag and mini golf and riding go carts and entertaining extended family. Oh, and I'm training for two races, too (got in an 8.4 mile run over the weekend...)

Here's what still needs to be done before May 6:
finish inviting people
figure out who is helping with what, make separate list, and make sure they know what to do
talk to D about helping
figure out who else can help at the reception
get Will vest/tie
figure out what the boys are wearing for pants and ties, buy if necessary new jeans for one of them
buy shirt for Dante
talk to Will's brother about role in the wedding
figure out how to serve ice cream
order flowers for Seppie’s (and girl's?) hair
mail deposit check to honeymoon place
update wedding registry
collect pasta sauce jars
get candles for jars
figure out ribbon for bouquets
figure out/get light strings for indoors
get more light strings for outdoors
figure out how to serve drinks/kid drinks
figure out/get all tablecloths
make napkins
get ready for flower making party (try out flowers, get paper, thank you notes)
chalkboards for photobooth, with signage
make Martha Stewart poufs?
choose readings, figure out who is doing readings – talk to them
work on vows
figure out how everyone is getting to the wedding/getting home
drunk shuttle?
confirm where out of town peeps are staying
figure out/order wine
get shoes/hair accessories
work on ceremony program
tell each other how much we love each other every single day
do something to work on our relationship every single day
figure out guest book
make sure wedding outfits fit
seppie get foundation garments
seppie get/make shrug (and one for the girl?)
get big frame/more backdrops (?)/costumes for diy photobooth

Oh, and did I mention that I have an all day meeting tomorrow, and I haven't written sub plans yet? Or that we're having a nerf gun slumber party at our house on Friday night? With eight 11-year-old boys? And a dinner party on Saturday night? Or that I'm running a 10k race first thing Sunday morning? Or that it's the end of the school year and I have to have my classroom completely cleaned out and packed away on the last day, since it's being used over the summer and we're getting married the week after school gets out? Oy. Blogging is a great form of procrastination...

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
