About Me

I am a crazy woman, funny and carefree but type A and anal all at the same time. I have two daughters and a Father who's a King...what more do I need?! My goal on this planet is to help His bride: literally (I plan weddings for a living!) and spiritually (I occasionally offer words of wisdom to loved ones...) Bless us all on this journey!

Altogether Now...

Here's a strange phenomenon I've noticed. As an event planner I have weekends every 3 months or so with 4-5 things. As if humans have gotten together and intentionally gravitated toward one particular weekend and planned EVERYTHING at once. Or even unintentionally, whatever. I know we're all busy and we all have the occasional busy weekend, but it's not even that. It's as if we all subconsciously navigate ourselves to particular times/days/gatherings ALL AT ONCE. This has not only occurred one time! Next weekend for example, is one of those that after scheduling two things people would say they needed something for the weekend of the 18-19th and I'd say "Of COURSE you do. Of course." I have a bridal shower, a wedding rehearsal and ceremony, a 3 day church conference, a bridal expo at the Expo Center, and the kids have a cheerleading competition in Danville, IN. I don't even know where that is! So I have a schedule HOUR BY HOUR next Saturday for me, the kids, Dave and Alexis who are keeping the kids and doing the cheerleading, the church, and then Megan who is running the store for me for a couple hours after I leave on Saturday and then doing the reception so I can do the ceremony and then get to the church for the conference we're doing. That's just Saturday! Then there's a different schedule Sunday for each of us as well. It's just one of those weekends where you feel like you'd like to perfect the cloning process so you can clone YOU.

Yikes! Sounds crazy, but it also sounds like you have it under control! (at least as much as possible) By the way, Danville is a suburb of Indy.

I so know what you mean. I think it was Sept 18th that was the exact same way. Everyone in our house had some major thing to do that day. Several of the activities overlapping. If I could just drop one person off, go do xyz, and then pick up one then pick up the other in just the nick of time it might all work out!! And don't evn get me started about having no time to cook with all of this chaos. LOL! We even had to turn down invitations to birthday parties and such on that day as well because there just wasn't enough time to do anything else. Unfortunately, as we get into the holiday season it will be like that more frequently.

What is even worse is all of the pre-planning to get your ducks in a row for that big day...right? I will pray that things go smoothly for you in spite of your busy weekend.
